2011 Chrysler 200 starts teasing us

After a huge amount of speculation, it seems that the all-new Chrysler 200 will replace the aging Sebring from the carmaker’s lineup.

The company has just started teasing us with a few shots depicting various elements of the new luxury sedan. As you can clearly see, the model is based on the 200C concept we saw a few years ago, but will tone it down and replace the electric powertrain with a conventional one.

According to the details revealed up until now, the base Chrysler 200 will sport a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, which can be had with either a four- or a six-speed automatic. Those that want more power can upgrade to the already ubiquitous 3.6-liter Pentastar V6, rated at 283 HP and 263 lb-ft of torque. This unit will only be had with the six-speed automatic.

Expect more details and teaser shots in the following days, but Chrysler fans can already start celebrating the demise of the Sebring.

    Chrysler 200? All you need to know is that they still plan on offering a 4 speed transmission. And, how can they be talking of “improved ride, improved suspension geometry, new tires”, etc. if this is a new car? Aren’t they admitting that this is just a rebadging of the Sebring? I bet it’s a snoozer.
