2015 200: quiet, AWD?

by David Zatz on



“Fortyblank” photographed this car, which appears to be a Chrysler 200 prototype, in California; the still shot was taken as both drivers waited to cross a one-lane bridge. As soon as the incoming car crossed, he wrote, “the 200 took off like a bat out of Hell. My window was down so that I could try to figure out which engine it had, but I could not hear a thing. It was silent. … visually, the car appears long and narrow, but that’s common these days.” The blurred photo is the car making a left turn after exiting the freeway. “Fortyblank” was driving at the time.

A reliable source told us that the 200 would come with an all-wheel-drive option; it’s probably not the same one that’s in the Jeep Cherokee. Another source said that they had fewer problems and panics developing the 200, which bodes well for buyers and for the production schedule.
