Chrysler confirms 200 for Chicago

by David Zatz on

Chrysler 200 Convertible

Chrysler confirmed today that the Chrysler 200 Convertible would be launched at the Chicago Auto Show. Information on the car has already been released, including photos and pricing. Media days for the show, to be attended by Allpar’s Jim Choate, will start on February 9, while the general public can attend starting February 11. The Chicago Auto Show is held at the expansive McCormick Place.

The 200 Convertible will sell with a choice of four-cylinder or V6 engines, both with a six-speed automatic (a dual-clutch six-speed will be available on the four-cylinder with late introduction), and with a choice of single-button-activated cloth or hard tops. Differentiating the 200 from the Sebring is a retuned suspension, a new V6, the six-speed/four-cylinder combination, a new interior, and dramatically different styling. The starting price is $27,195 including destination.
