Benny Boyd CDJR of Andrews, TX proudly introduces the all new 2017 Chrysler 200 to the community of city, state. While the news columns are abuzz about the Chrysler 200 (and the smaller Dodge Dart) going out of production later this year, newly built examples are still arriving at dealerships. Priced low and backed by incentives, they’re poised to tempt consumers looking for a deal. We haven’t been particularly impressed by the 200 since the second-generation car came to market in mid-2014 as a 2015.
It’s probably no coincidence that sales of the 200, which came out of the gate strong enough to show FCA gaining a little market share in the hypercompetitive mid-size-sedan segment, fell off a cliff not long after. It’s not all down to CR’s influence: Family-car sales went soft in the rapid market shift to crossovers, Chrysler dialed back on incentives for the 200, and the car squares off against some excellent competitors, including not only the top-selling Toyota Camry and the Honda Accord, but also the Ford Fusion and the excellent new Chevrolet Malibu that stole the spotlight soon after the 200 stepped onto the stage. It’s a tight field in which the differences among trim levels, optional equipment, and price points become as meaningful to the buyer’s choices as those between makes and models.
All in, the $28,175 bottom line—before incentives—is easily 20 percent lower than the sticker on a well-equipped V-6 Camry or Accord. Neither Chevy nor Ford offers a V-6 in their 2016 mid-size sedans (Ford has a twin-turbo 2.7-liter V-6 coming for the 2017 Fusion V6 Sport, with standard all-wheel drive, which starts at $34,350 before any options). None of the competitors in this segment still offering six-cylinder power (add Nissan Altima, Subaru Legacy, and Volkswagen Passat to that list) can match the Pentastar’s 295 horsepower or its 262 lb-ft of torque.
