Chrysler 200: dual clutch automatic coming

by David Zatz on

Chrysler 200 sedan

Chrysler will have a dual clutch automatic as an option in the Chrysler 200, according to sources. The option, available well after launch, will be available only with the four cylinder engine, and only on the Limited model.

A dual clutch automatic is, in essence, an automatically shifted manual, providing greater efficiency than a fluid-linked manual transmission. The particular model to be sold by Chrysler is a dry clutch model, whose origins are not mentioned. It will include a 160 amp alternator (normally reserved for V6 models).

Allpar has posted numerous new specifications, dimensions, and other data on its 2011 Chrysler 200 page. The car, already reviewed by some magazines who had early access, is set for an official release on the L.A. Auto Show this week.
