2015 Chrysler Overview

Visit a Chrysler dealer these days and you'll find three models: the 200 midsize sedan, full-size 300 sedan, and the Town & Country minivan. Take a look around and what might strike you the most is the 2015 200, which has been redesigned with fresh, modern styling, a host of interior and content upgrades, and a new chassis. A redesigned 2015 300 is also slated to appear soon, but details are not available as this article is written. As for the 2015 Town & Country, it adds a couple of new trim levels, but is otherwise unchanged.

2015 Chrysler 200

Competition in the midsize sedan vehicle segment of the U.S. auto industry is fierce. Top sellers include the Toyota Camry, Honda Accord, and Nissan Altima, among others. In the past, Chrysler's underwhelming 200 seldom made it into the conversation, something the automaker aims to change with the completely redesigned 2015 model. In place of the formerly stodgy styling and rental-grade materials are a sleek exterior and what the company claims are higher-quality fabrics and plastics throughout the interior. Inside the 2015 200 is also where buyers will find a rotary shift knob that's connected to a new 9-speed automatic transmission, which, in turn, is linked to either a 184-horsepower 2.4-liter 4-cylinder or 295-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6 engine. Front-wheel-drive (FWD) and all-wheel-drive (AWD) versions of the 200 sedan are offered. According to the EPA, fuel economy reaches as high as 36 mpg on the highway.

The 2015 Chrysler 200 lineup consists of four trim levels-LX, Limited, S, and C-with the latter two available with FWD or AWD. Among the more noteworthy features are an 8.4-in. touch-screen infotainment system, driver and front passenger knee air bags, blind-spot monitoring system, and an option the company calls Parallel and Perpendicular Park Assist.

2015 Chrysler 300

Details about the 2015 Chrysler 300 were not available as this guide is written, but expect the sedan to be completely redesigned.

Until that model arrives, buyers will continue to be offered the 2014 300, available in five trim levels: 300, 300S, 300C, 300C John Varvatos Luxury Edition, and 300C John Varvatos Limited Edition. Riding on a rear-wheel-drive or AWD platform, the 300 draws its power from a 3.6-liter V-6 or a 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 engine.

2015 Chrysler Town & Country

For the most part, the 2015 Chrysler Town & Country minivan is a carryover from 2014, with two notable exceptions: new LX and Limited Platinum trim levels. Offered as the entry-level variant, the Town & Country LX features leather upholstery, power liftgate, power sliding doors, rearview camera, innovative stow-n-go rear seats, 17-in. alloy wheels, 3-zone air conditioning, and a 6.5-in. touch-screen audio system. The LX is followed by the Touring, S, Touring-L, Limited, and the 2015 Town & Country Limited Platinum. That top-of-the-line variant earns its spot with amenities including a 506-watt sound system, power sunroof, rear-seat entertainment system, premium leather and wood trim, heated front and second-row seats, and a heated steering wheel. Under the hood of every 2015 Town & Country is a 283-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6 engine.
