SRT Dart and 200 engines

by David Zatz on

Yesterday, we reported that the Dart SRT4 was shown to dealers. Today, we were told that it was now called Dart SRT, rather than SRT-4, and that the “black hood” is actually a carbon fiber hood.
The revised Chrysler 200, by all indications an attractive car, will continue with the same engines — the 3.6 liter V6 and the 2.4 liter four-cylinder. The latter will be in TigerShark form, as it is on Dodge Dart, and will likely be rated at 184-210 horsepower. Both engines will be sold with the nine-speed ZF automatic transmission, dramatically boosting their gas mileage and acceleration. The 38 mpg version of the 200 is likely to be a special version of the car with the four-cylinder, nine-speed automatic, and some of the fuel-saving technologies which debuted on Dodge Dart and Ram 1500.
At this time, the only upcoming vehicle with the 3.2 liter Pentastar V6 is the Jeep Liberty replacement. (Thanks, Nick.)
