Word on the street is that the Chrysler 200 will be getting an update sooner than expected. Rumors have been swirling regarding the 2014 Chrysler 200 and the debut of the new Chrysler 200.
Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne has said the introduction of the redesigned 200 model has been postponed until January 2015. This would indicate that the 2014 200 model year will be cut rather short. Production on the 2014 Chrysler 200 is set to begin in July of this year and end in January of 2015. In a typical production year, cars are made from midyear well into the following year.
The short production year makes way for the revamped Chrysler 200’s entrance onto the scene. The new model, which will likely still be called the 200, is anticipated to be unveiled at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show.
The next-generation model will contain a platform that is dually developed by Chrysler and Fiat. The revised model is set to boast numerous new features as well as a new design direction for the brand. One of the key new features in place is the nine-speed automatic transmission. This will be the same transmission as the 2014 Jeep Cherokee.
The new 2015 model is not the only thing getting a little attention. The Sterling Heights, Michigan plant is getting a $1 billion investment. Paint and body shops are being constructed at the plant in preparations for the new model.
