The original Chrysler 200 was discontinued a couple of years ago after a quite short production cycle, but latest reports suggest we could see it on the market once again. If we can trust some of the reports that circulate on the network, we can expect to see a comeback of this mid-size sedan, in the form of 2020 Chrysler 200.
Still, the new model would have to be much better than the original, if the company wants to make it more successful. This refers to things like a new platform, interior design, driving characteristics and much more. Some reports suggest that the new model could arrive already in the next year.
- Efficient and powerful engines
- Dynamic ride
- User-friendly infotainment system
- Still early for complaints
The 2020 Chrysler 200 would arrive with a completely new design. Unlike the original version, which featured FCA’s familiar Global Wide platform, the new one would come based on the dynamic Alfa Romeo Giulia.
This sporty sedan rides on a platform called Giorgio, which would have to undergo some modifications for this occasion, mainly because of the fact that the 2020 Chrysler 200 should be a mid-size car, which competes in the segment where some of the key players are Honda Accord and Toyota Camry. Of course, we count on completely new aesthetics as well, based on the brand’s latest design language.
The original model was unsuccessful for many reasons and interior design is one of them. The original model was a mid-size sedan, but legroom in the second row was pretty limited. Therefore, we count on a more spacious cabin in the new model, which should also come with more cargo volume and plenty of other novelties.
Among them, one of the most important should be a more intense use of hi-quality materials, as the original model features lots of cheap hard plastic surfaces. Finally, count on plenty of latest tech goodies.
2020 Chrysler 200 Engine
The original model was powered by Chrysler’s familiar four- and six-cylinder units. This time, we are about to see something far more efficient. Considering that the new 2020 Chrysler 200 will ride on Alfa Romeo’s Giorgio platform, we count on a familiar turbo-four engine from Giulia.
It is a 2.0-liter engine, which comes in two output variants, with either 200 hp and 245 lb-ft of torque or 280 hp and 300 lb-ft of torque. Both versions will come paired with 8-speed automatic transmission.
2020 Chrysler 200 Release Date and Price
The 2020 Chrysler 200 is currently nothing more than speculation. Once we hear something from the officials, we can start with predictions about the price and possible launch date.
