2015 200: 10,000 first day orders (updated)

by David Zatz on


Dealers and customers ordered over 10,000 Chrysler 200s on the first day ordering opened for the new 2015 cars. There were over 17,000 orders on the first two days of ordering, May 8 and May 9.

Initial shipments of 200s are reaching dealers across the country, in some cases delayed by a national shortage of railway resources.

The Chrysler 200 is a key car for the company, replacing two existing cars (Avenger and 200); it is being launched into a market Chrysler was once a major player in, and has gotten excellent initial reviews. Every 200 has a nine-speed automatic transmission, in a segment where most cars have four to six speed automatics; there are two available engines, a 2.4 liter four and a 3.6 liter V6.

The 200 is now shown in the Chrysler web site’s Build & Price section, with various options. The basic car ranges from $21,700 (LX) to $25,995 (200C), but with every single option — which buyers are highly unlikely to order — can range up to $37,550. That includes the one higher-cost paint choice, panoramic sunroof, AWD, V6, bigger wheels, safety features, self parking, HID headlamps, engine block heater, and every possible comfort-and-convenience gadget.
