The 2015 Chrysler 200 has leaked revealing that the new sedan will be priced from $22,695 including delivery.

In the leak, the American automaker boasts that the 2015 Chrysler 200 will be the industry’s first midsize sedan with a standard nine-speed automatic transmission. It is expected to get up to 35 mpg on the highway thanks to the transmission that can be mated to either the 2.4-liter Tigershark four-cylinder engine (184 hp, 173 lb-ft of torque) or the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine (295 hp, 262 lb-ft of torque).

Available as an option will be an all-wheel drive system that’s first to deliver an automatic fully disconnecting rear axle to improve fuel economy by reducing parasitic loss when the all-wheel drive is not needed.

Finally, the nine-speed transmission can be shifted through a rotary dial for “state-of-the-art electronic shifting.”
