March 25, 2014 , Vancouver, British Columbia – The all-new 2015 Chrysler 200 sedan was unveiled on B.C. soil for the first time today. The game-changing, North American-designed and -built four-door was the headline debut amongst a sextet of exciting unveilings from Chrysler Canada at the 2014 Vancouver International AutoShow.
The reveal of the 2015 Chrysler 200 comes alongside the Vancouver debuts of the 2014 Challenger R/T Shaker and Dart Blacktop from Dodge, the 2014 Jeep® Cherokee, the segment-exclusive Ram 1500 EcoDiesel, and the first B.C. auto show appearance of the legendary, fifth- generation SRT Viper.
These new products – either in showrooms now or arriving soon –build on what is Chrysler Group’s best product line-up in history and will maintain the company’s upward momentum, which in 2013 placed it as the number-one seller of vehicles in all of British Columbia.
“Chrysler Canada is coming off of a stellar year in B.C.,” said Bob Devlin, Regional Manager, Chrysler Canada Western Business Centre. “Our top-three products in the province – Ram 1500, Dodge Grand Caravan and Ram Heavy Duty – helped to propel us to the top of B.C.’s retail sales chart last year. We can’t thank the discerning consumers of British Columbia enough for choosing so many Chrysler Group products. These vehicle debuts in Vancouver today will certainly further expand the appeal of our showrooms to an even wider audience.”
2015 Chrysler 200
The all-new 2015 Chrysler 200 charts a new course for mid-size sedans, and brings a noteworthy dose of understated elegance, craftsmanship and state-of-the-art technology to the segment, including firsts like a standard nine-speed automatic transmission and an available all-wheel-drive system which automatically disconnects from the rear axle to save fuel.
The new 200 is the first Chrysler Brand product to be built on the Compact U.S.-wide (CUS-wide) platform, which has roots under Italy’s acclaimed Alfa Romeo Giulietta. Power will come from either a standard 2.4-litre MultiAir® Tigershark four-cylinder engine or the award-winning 3.6-litre Pentastar V-6 with a best-in-class 295 horsepower.
It is built at Chrysler Group’s Sterling Heights (Mich.) Assembly Plant (SHAP), which underwent a $1 billion investment to build the new world-class 200 sedan to exacting World Class Manufacturing principles.
