2015 Chrysler 200 will launch later this year

Chrysler has unveiled a refreshed version of the 200 that is much better looking than the outgoing car. The new 2015 version of the 200 isn’t exactly drop dead gorgeous, but it’s a nice looking ride that should sell much better than the old version.

Chrysler isn’t offering up all the details on the new 200, which was unveiled at the Detroit auto show. The car promises nicer materials on the interior and will have two motor options reports Motor Ward. The standard engine is a 2.4L Tigershark 4-cylinder making 184hp and 173 pound-foot of torque.

The optional engine is a 3.6L V6 making 292hp and 262 lb-foot of torque. The car gets a 9-speed auto transmission that is shifted using a rotary knob inside the car. More specs and details will be offered later this year closer to launch.

Filed under: Recalls, Chevrolet, Lincoln, Alfa Romeo In a strong signal of support, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles moved to reinforce Alfa with a new head of North American operations, Reid Bigland. Alfa Romeo was in the news this week, and for once, it didn't involve another rumor the brand was going to be sold off to the highest bidder. Quite the opposite. In a strong signal of support, Fiat Chrysler Automobil ...

Is This A Real Prototype Jeep Pickup, Or Just A Home-Made One-Off?

Aug 22 2014 4:10pm CDT | Source: Jalopnik

A reader spotted this single-cab Jeep Wrangler JK pickup truck with manufacturer plates in the Detroit area this morning. It's probably a product of the aftermarket, but maybe, just maybe, a Chrysler employee is field testing the very thing many of us have been dreaming of for ages: a modern, factory, Wrangler pickup.Read mo ...

Ram pickups to keep it steel through 2020

Aug 22 2014 2:50pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Truck, Technology, Ram One of the hottest topics in the industry these days is automakers' expanding use of aluminum, especially for vehicle bodies and platforms. While the lightweight metal has historically been the preserve of premium brands and sports cars, Ford shocked the industry when it announced that its 2015 F-150 would go aluminum-intensive for its new generation. As it turns out, the material change doesn't even mean a big jump in the prices ...

Hellsnake? Supercharged V-10 Viper Rumors Swirling in Detroit

Aug 22 2014 2:38pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

When Dodge placed the 707-hp Hellcat V-8 in the Challenger SRT and the Charger SRT, it threw a little cold water on its Viper supercar. As a model whose sales were already disappointing, the last thing the Viper needed was to have the authority of its mighty 640-hp V-10 contested by supercharged eight-cylinder upstarts from its own family. But a report from the Mopar fanatics at Allpar suggests that the Viper may have a plan to regain ...

Although the upcoming 2015 Ford F-150 boasts a new aluminum chassis and body, as well as reports of the next-generation Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra going aluminum by 2018, Ram is expected to stick to its steel body through 2020.

2015 Corvette Stingray Eight-Speed Automatic Driven: Eight Ways to Shift Your Pants

Aug 21 2014 4:39pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

The race to higher gear counts is in full swing, and automatic gearboxes are leading the way. Driven partly by marketing one-upmanship and partly by the need to meet ever-tougher fuel-economy mandates, eight-speed autoboxes are everywhere, Chrysler’s running a nine-cogger in select models, and 10-speeds—from Ford, GM, Volkswagen, and others—are just around the corner. The General’s own in-house-developed eight-speed units (for its trucks and rear-d ...
