2018 Chrysler 200 might be completely remade
The Chrysler 200 was first introduced back in 2010, after the concept was shown in 2009 at the North American International Auto Show held in Detroit.
It was based upon the Chrysler Sebring, albeit heavily restyled and re-engineered. The company had high hopes for the new 2018 Chrysler 200, both in the domestic and European market, where it was badged as a Lancia Flavia, although that model never made it to the UK shores; it was sold in Left Hand Drive only.
Truthfully, it hasn’t been one of Chryslers best-selling models, to the point where Fiat-Chrysler have said that this next generation will be the last produced.
2018 Chrysler 200 Release date
Chrysler haven’t officially confirmed prices or release date, but the answer to the question will there be a 2018 Chrysler 200 is yes it would. We expect to see the new 2018 200 hit the showrooms around the third quarter of 2017.
2018 Chrysler 200 Price
As already stated, no official announcements have been made, but we think there will be a small price hike over the current model, expect prices to around $23,000 for the base model, rising to $31,000 for the range-topper.

2018 Chrysler 200 Redesign and Changes
Not much is going to change in the styling department, perhaps a little softening of the exterior, a little updating to keep the 200 looking fresh and modern. We do know that there will be minor changes to the front grille, fenders, air intakes and lighting – both front and rear. But the 2nd generation Chrysler 200 2018 (the current model) has the lowest drag-coefficient of its class, so perhaps keeping the style is no bad thing.
2018 Chrysler 200 Convertible
The Chrysler 200 2018 convertible is a unique vehicle - no one really offers convertibles in this class, among US car makers. This tradition comes from mid-90s when the first Chrysler Sebring convertible was appeared. Then after the discontinuation of model, convertible body comes to 200.
However, the current generation convertible is only a concept - you can't simply buy it. We could only hope that 2018 model year will be the return of a roofless car.
2018 Chrysler 200 Configurations
There is plenty of options to choose from while buying 200 model. The 200 itself has 4 trim levels: LX, Touring, Limited and Limited Platinum. This is rather traditional designations for the brand. The next step is special modifications, which are three: 200S, 200C and 200C Platinum.
2018 Chrysler 200 S
S stands for Sport, so there is body colored details (instead of chrome plated), 18-inch aluminum rims, spoilers and S badges, fog lights, etc. Unlike the simple models, 200S could have all-wheel drive transmission as an option. For just extra $2000 you could get more powerful 3.6 V6 engine.
2018 Chrysler 200C
C means Comfort or Classic - highly equipped and powerful version of the car. It has chrome-plated decorative body elements, powered passenger seat, automatic headlights, active grille shutters, heated steering wheel, keyless entry and more.
2018 Chrysler 200 Specs
Engine-wise, we think there will be two options available; the 2.4 liter 4-cylinder and the 3.7 liter V6. Neither are setting the world alight with their performance, although the V6 was at some point considered the most powerful in the market that this mid-size sedan sits in. Gas mileage should be pretty good for the smaller engine, reaching around 36 MPG on the highway.
For the 2018 200 to be a success, Chrysler must update the tech and equipment fitted. There will be three trim levels; 200, 200C and 200S. The base model will get a reasonable amount of equipment, including the U-Connect touchscreen infotainment system and USB connectivity, but you’re really going to need to upgrade a little or tick a few option boxes to get any serious toys and equipment. On the whole, the new Chrysler 200 will be more of the same really; a reasonable, mid-size, mid-range sedan that will work exactly as it should.
