When the 2011 Chrysler 200 convertible, unveiled today at the Chicago Auto Show, arrives in Chrysler showrooms this spring, buyers will be able to choose between a body-color painted steel retractable hardtop or a cloth soft top.
Chrysler Group LLC said the 200 will have three trim levels available in the U.S., including the Touring, the Limited and the Convertible S model. Chrysler will re-badge the 200 convertible as a Lancia for European markets.
Like its sedan counterpart, unveiled in October, the base convertible trim model is powered by a 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine. A Pentastar V-6 engine, which produces 283 hp, will be an available option. Both options are matched to a reworked six-speed transmission.
The 200 is a replacement for the Chrysler Sebring."The 200 Convertible is the fourth new vehicle introduced in the last three months coming on the heels of the debuts of the new 2011 Chrysler 200 sedan and 2011 Town & Country minivan in Los Angeles and the introduction of the all-new flagship Chrysler 300 in Detroit," said Chrysler brand CEO Olivier Francois in a statement. "Starting in Chicago, the entire Chrysler product lineup is new for 2011."
The convertible 200 will sell for a base price of $27,195 with shipping.
