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.

5 Best Sleeper Cars of 2014

Sep 18 2014 1:00pm CDT | Source: Top Speed

The term "sleeper car" goes back to the 1950s, when American manufacturers started building high output cars that would eventually spawn into muscle cars a decade later. Tracking the first sleeper is a daunting task, but most stories lead to the 1955 Chrysler C-300, a two-door, luxury coupe motivated by a 5.4-liter V-8 engine rated at 300 horsepower. It was the first production passenger car to come with 300 ponies on tap and a design that had nothing to say a ...

Are there any Canadian drivers that deserve more respect than hockey parents? (Or skiing, speed skating, curling, luge, bob sleigh or ringette parents?) Battling before-dawn wake-up calls, rush-hour traffic, four-season driving conditions and unruly passengers — not to mention the transportation of toxic cargo known as the “hockey bag” — hockey parents have one of the toughest chauffeuring assignments on the planet. One such set of parents is this month’s Dear Jo ...
