More C200 spy shots

Chrysler 200 spy shot

Christopher Chrouch has supplied three more spy shots of what might be the next Chrysler 200. One source said this was definitely the car shown to dealerships.

Mr. Chrouch photographed two cars; JackRatchett noticed that one has the body line curving down and forward toward the back of the rear wheel, and the exhaust openings in the rear as described by people who have seen the 200 shown to dealerships. The other has the look of the style used on the Charger at the rear, looking like a mini-Charger but without a door scallop. This raises the possibility of keeping the 200/Avenger dual path going until Avenger gets a rear wheel drive powertrain — unless development of the “D-RWD” cars is further along than expected (converting the CUSW platform to rear wheel drive may not have been as difficult as thought.) If this is indeed a front wheel drive Avenger, it would explain a Detroit News claim that Avenger will continue for two or three more years, though they reported that the current model would keep running. To date, there has been no substantiation of the newspaper’s reports.

The front appears to feature wraparound headlights that go further along the fender than usual, while the rear appears to have cutouts for full width lights; though this may only mean that the camouflage has been taken from other cars that had the feature. The company could also have added extra padding to throw off speculation.

For more spy shots and renderings, along with what we might expect from the next 200, see our primary 2015 Chrysler 200 page.
