The days of Chrysler’s Sebring Sedan are over with this year’s debut of the 200, which is the automaker’s new large family car.
Chrysler spokesperson Kathy Graham says the 200 has the same doors and roof as the Sebring Sedan did, but its new body (plus a new powertrain and suspension) is part of Chrysler’s transition to a completely new D-segment (family) vehicle for model year 2013. That model likely will be designed by Chrysler parent company Fiat, she says. Graham declined to speculate whether the new vehicle then would replace the 200 or be another D-segment option from the Chrysler family.
The 200 starts at $19,995 and comes with a V6 engine that gets 19 mpg in the city and 29 on the highway.
