Chrysler Dealers were shown the future in Orlando, Florida this week and part of the plan is changing the name of the current Sebring to the Chrysler 200. Good move Sergio! The last redesign of the Sebring fell flat partly because of styling woes and a crappy interior to boot so this car gets kicked to the curb. The new 200 under the new Fiat led group will sport a stiffer body, new suspension geometry, a new rear sway bar and improved noise, vibration and harshness treatment according to the company.

Fiat/Chrysler keep marching towards the future and we like what we see!


DETROIT — Chrysler Group today said it would name its redesigned mid-sized sedan the Chrysler 200 — the vehicle that will replace the Sebring in its lineup.

The 200 is a re-engineered, restyled version of the current Sebring.

The company showed the renamed car and several other vehicles to its dealers today at a national meeting in Orlando and said the 200 will arrive in showrooms in the fourth quarter.

The 200 will be available with Chrysler’s new Pentastar V-6 engine and a six-speed automatic or with Chrysler’s 2.4-liter I-4 engine mated to a four- or six-speed automatic transaxle.
