With the first nine-speed automatic transmission in its class, the 2015 Chrysler 200 delivers better acceleration than the 2014s, with better economy — up to 36 mpg highway [see all mileage ratings]. As predicted, the nine-speed is controlled by a rotary shifter with an optional sport mode; and there is are all wheel drive and park-assist options.
The 2014’s basic engines carry over, but both have been upgraded; the four-cylinder now has 184 hp and 173 lb of torque, while the V6 has risen to 295 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque. Chrysler 200 has also jumped forward to become the most aerodynamic mid-size sedan in America, with a cD of 0.27 — possibly the lowest drag coefficient of any Chrysler ever built — partly thanks to a standard underbody cover. A stop-start system will, with active grille shutters, be added as a late option to increase gas mileage, according to source oh2o.
