2015 Chrysler 200 Orders

The Detroit carmaker unveiled the new Chrysler 200 for the first time earlier this year, at the Detroit Motor Show and everyone saw it as one of the most important cars for the future of the Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles group, since it’s competing in one of the popular segments. And it looks like the model is about to get a great start, since Chrysler has announced that 10,000 units were ordered on the first day orders were accepted, which was May 8. Second day wasn’t bad either and the total number of Chrysler 200s ordered during the first two days was 17,000, which means that the Sterling Heights Assembly Plant has secured full production through mid-July.

Al Gardner, the President and CEO of the Chrysler brand said that they’re “thrilled to see the level of enthusiasm customers and dealers have shown to order the all-new 2015 Chrysler 200. With a standard nine-speed automatic transmission, a choice of two powertrains with fuel economy ratings of up to 36 miles per gallon (mpg) highway, an available state-of-the art all-wheel drive system, and an interior that will wow drivers and passengers alike, the new Chrysler 200 is raising the bar for what customers should expect from a mid-size sedan.”

The all new Chrysler 200 has an MSRP of $21,700 (excluding destination) and is available in four trim levels: LX, Limited model, 200S and 200C, the latter being the top of the line version. Based on an Alfa Romeo chassis, the Chrysler 200 will come with two engine choices, an entry-level 2.4-liter MultiAir Tigershark engine that produces 184-hp and 173 lb-ft of torque and a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 unit that delivers 295-hp and 262 lb-ft of torque.
