DETROIT -- Chrysler Group today said it would name its redesigned mid-sized sedan the Chrysler 200 -- the vehicle that will replace the Sebring in its lineup.
The 200 is a re-engineered, restyled version of the current Sebring.
The company showed the renamed car and several other vehicles to its dealers today at a national meeting in Orlando and said the 200 will arrive in showrooms in the fourth quarter.
The 200 will be available with Chrysler's new Pentastar V-6 engine and a six-speed automatic or with Chrysler's 2.4-liter I-4 engine mated to a four- or six-speed automatic transaxle.
The 200 also will get a stiffer body, new suspension geometry, a new rear sway bar and improved noise, vibration and harshness treatment, the company said.
As with other new vehicles in the Chrysler fleet, the 200 also gets a new interior designed to address one of the most frequently criticized areas of the existing Sebring.
