2015 Chrysler 200 Sedan Rated Up to 36 MPG Highway

By Jacob Brown | March 27, 2014
To make a splash in the midsize sedan segment, Chrysler is pulling out all of the stops with its 2015 200 sedan. One of those stops happens to be focused around fuel economy, where the 2015 Chrysler 200 has just received its final EPA ratings for all of its available engines. The base 2.4-liter Tigershark2 four-cylinder engine in the 200 nets 184 horsepower--an 11-horsepower improvement over the 2014 car--and achieves 23 mpg city/36 mpg highway/28 mpg combined. That's 2/5/4 mpg better than the outgoing car when equipped with its six-speed automatic transmission. How is that possible? Part of the answer may lie in the 2015 Chrysler 200's slippery new shape and its nine-speed automatic transmission that comes standard. Moving on up, Chrysler's 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 receives a 12-horsepower bump to 295 and nets an impressive 19 mpg city/32 mpg highway/23 mpg combined when paired with front-wheel drive. That compares to 19 mpg city/29 mpg highway/22 mpg combined for the outgoing model. The new all-wheel-driver version nets 18 mpg city/29 mpg highway. We can confidently report that after driving the 2015 Chrysler 200 last week in Louisville, Kentucky, we achieved fuel economy numbers similar to those reported for mixed driving. Starting at $22,695, including $995 for destination and handling, the 2015 Chrysler 200 possesses a luxury car-like interior at mainstream prices. While our preproduction examples weren't perfect, we anticipate all of the kinks will be worked out by the time the 2015 Chrysler 200 goes on sale this spring. Source: Chrysler
