200 Convertible: major upgrades

by David Zatz on

Chrysler 200 Convertible

Sources report that the Chrysler 200 Convertible, due in the first quarter of 2011, will provide upgrades similar to those enjoyed by the 200 sedan. The entire vehicle was revisited and retuned for superior quality and customer satisfaction, while substantial content was added to each price class. Prices appear to be lower for the top Limited model and base LX model.

Seats were completely re-engineered, with new spring geometry and new cushion materials and design. A larger lit storage bin joins the lit glove box, floor console, and other areas. Standard features will include side airbags, alarm, four-wheel ABS disc brakes, and stability control (not standard on the base model).

Meanwhile, the new exterior includes LED taillamps, LED running lights, and new wheels; while the four cylinder engine carries forward (with a standard four-speed and optional six-speed automatic), the suspension was redesigned and the 3.6 liter Pentastar V6 with 283 horsepower replaces the old 2.7 liter V6… with better gas mileage.

Even the base model will have 17 inch aluminum wheels and audio controls on the wheel.

Chrysler anticipates that very few 200 Convertibles will be the LX model, given the high content of the Touring and Limited.
