I might've missed some info on the subject (as I narrowed the search down to just one member), but this is what I found.
Agreed, I was looking at the 200S AWD before I picked up the Dart. The reason I took the Dart is my Mother in law hit her head getting into the back seat of the 200, the dart was okay to get in and out of for her. I would have been all over a V6/AWD Dart!!I have driven the Chrysler 200S with V6 and AWD. The car is incredibly fast and goes straight as an arrow.
The "aquatic" 200 styling wasn't for everybody...though, the 200 S blacked out looks good.Agreed, I was looking at the 200S AWD before I picked up the Dart.

I mean, that's hilariously awesome. Too bad it never happened.Sadly yes...SRT division with Ralph at that time, its head director, sought ways to kill the competition.
Yeah, I've had some good interactions with him tooIt was a tweet between Ralph and I (hemidakota user name). Ralph Gillis is a humble guy when it comes to answering questions or looking for new concepts.
The 3.6 was rated over 30 highway in the large RWD cars with the 8 speed transmission. The 9 speed used in 200 gave 31 highway in the 200.Yes, IC, it was the quick and dirty to hit 40mpg to attain a 15 percent stake in Chrysler being held by the government. With that, I thought the 3.6 was supposed to be a high 30s mpg engine, especially in a car compared to the Journey and minivans and Jeeps. Did the 3.2 get cancelled? Used to be a Mitsu 2.6 V6, too. and when you can have a V12 that is a 5.3, that's a pretty small little bore/stroke, too, so it's not like something can't be made small, and turbo or supercharge (that's the real ticket) to compete with the competition better than we do.
