Before Today's 2016 Chrysler 200:

The Chrysler 200 was born in 2011 after Chrysler decided to drop the Sebring name. Although the 200 was basically a rebadged Sebring, It was drastically refined with enhanced power and deepened premium attributes. Lowered a little for a more road-conforming ride, the 200 showed-off new headlamp housings featuring LED strips, freshened taillights, a more powerful and environmentally friendly Pentastar V-6 engine, and higher quality wheels.

About The 2016 Chrysler 200:
