Back on January 23, 2014, I posted my first blog about the all-new 2015 Chrysler 200, 2015 Chrysler 200 – Benchmarking Dreams and Fulfilling Promises. I remember researching the vehicle and being excited about its availability on showroom floors. I even went so far as to say they would be “moving fast,” but I couldn’t have been more wrong. This little gem burst out of the gate like California Chrome powering down the final stretch of the Preakness last weekend.
On the first day of ordering, over 10,000 orders were placed. In the first two days, orders jumped to more than 17,000. As of May 14, 2014, the Sterling Heights Assembly Plant (SHAP), in Sterling Heights, Michigan, is at full production through the middle of July 2014 and orders continue to come in.
“The Chrysler brand is thrilled to see the level of enthusiasm customers and dealers have shown to order the all-new 2015 Chrysler 200,” said Al Gardner, President and CEO — Chrysler Brand, Chrysler Group LLC. “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.”
And there are, indeed, significant expectations in this segment of the market. The competition in the mid-sized sedans is fierce. But with segment-firsts such as standard nine-speed transmission, electronic shifting with a rotary e-dial shifter, plus a number of safety features typically only available in vehicles that cost far more, all for a starting MSRP of $21,700 (plus the destination charge), the all-new Chrysler 200 has what it takes to put the competition in their place
