Sales for the Chrysler 200 are on the up-tick, but that won’t stop the American automaker from cutting short production as it gears-up to introduce a dramatically updated model.
Refreshed in 2011, this new model will swap-out almost all of the old components, even riding on a Fiat-derived platform. As for what’s under the hood, look for a choice of either a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder or a smaller version of the current V6, displacing 3.2-liters. In addition, the 2015 Chrysler 200 will share a new 9-speed automatic transmission with the upcoming Jeep Cherokee. Past reports have indicated that the car could get as much as 38 mpg on the highway.

To make way for the new model, Chrysler will cut short production of the 2014 model, starting this summer and ending in early January. At that time, Chrysler will showcase the all new 200 at the Detroit Auto Show.
