With the addition of all-wheel drive, you might expect fuel economy to take a big hit, but that is not the case with the 2015 Chrysler 200.
When powered by the 3.6-liter V6 that makes 295 hp mated to all-wheel drive, the 2015 200 is rated at 18 mpg in the city, 29 mpg on the highway for a combined 22 mpg. That makes the new car exactly 1 mpg worse around town, while the other two numbers remain the same.
Compared to the previous car, the new 200 packs optional all-wheel drive along with a nine-speed automatic transmission, though power from the 3.6-liter remains nearly the same.
So far, the only fuel economy numbers the EPA has released are for the V6-equipped all-wheel drive car, while Chrysler maintains that the most efficient version of the car will get 35 mpg highway.
