more chrysler 200 leaks hit the web

Jalopnik’s got photos, both interior and exterior, as well as briefing documents on the Chrysler 200. Power comes from the 2.4L 4-cylinder or the 3.6L Pentastar V6. Yes, it has the 9-speed, a rotary shift dial, and a trick all-wheel drive system that can disconnect the rear axle when not in use.

    The name 200/Sebrig carries a bad rep, too bad they didn't just call it the new Avenger or something else. Either way it looks very nice from current photos and should be a beast with the Pentastar and AWD combo! I'm not a fan of rotary dials, call me old school. I see the 14 Durango also uses the rotary now... Also why a 9 speed, I know the Cherokee uses it as well. 6-8 are usually plenty. They should have used the 8speed ZF found on the current 300/Charger/Durango/GC...

      @JMII You must not be familiar with how high gear count automatics work. The transmission won't be hitting every gear sequentially, rather it will choose the correct gear based on driving conditions. The transmission can skip gears and shift to whichever gear it wants to. It's more about having a larger ratio spread (fuel economy) without sacrificing acceleration.

    Something is wrong with their pricing structure: Chrysler 200 - destination charge $995 from Sterling Heights, Michigan Mazda6 - delivered from Japan - $795 I do not mind paying surcharges etc, I reject being treated like an idiot.

      Delivery charges don't really relect the actual shipping costs per se. The other major midsize vehicles have a delivery charge in the $800-$900 range and are assembled in the US as well.

    It looks pretty nice to me. I'm doubting the 35 MPG claim but I would hope Chrysler is being honest with that after what's happened with their competition and inflated fuel economy numbers. But overall it looks pretty attractive, hopefully it does well and keeps the Michiganders busy building them.

    Actually looks pretty good - and I don't usually think midsizers look good (especially from Domestic makes)
