The 200 Sedan is all-new for 2015. On sale for a few months, it offers the first nine-speed automatic in a car, attached to a 2.4 4 cylinder or a 3.6 V6. The V6 offers AWD for the first time in a Chrysler mid-sized, making competition for the TSX, Legacy, and Fusion.
The 300 Sedan was introduced at the 2014 LA Car Show. Although billed as a significant new model, it only received light styling changes and the 8-speed automatic replaces the 5-speed on the V8. V8 models are apparently no longer offered with all-wheel drive. RWD V8s get one MPG better on the EPA city cycle: 16 city/25 hwy. The 300C SRT will be discontinued in favor of the Charger. No high-performance 300 will be offered, with the 6.4-liter Hemi® and the 6.2 supercharged Hellcat not offered. Front Collision Warning now includes automatic braking to help prevent accidents. Lane Departure Warning is now optional on 300S and 300C. It will help the driver correct by tugging the steering wheel in the correct direction. 300 now has the 911-Assist system which can automatically call for help in a collision. The driver can also use it to call for roadside assistance.
Town & Country
The Town & Country gets two new trim levels: LX at the bottom and Limited Platinum at the top. The LX eliminates the standard automatic headlamps and automatic climate control. The Platinum just takes standard equipment from the Limited.
