2014 Chrysler 200

While Chrysler hasn’;t officially announced fuel economy figures for its new 200 sedan, the information for one particular model has just leaked out thanks to the US Division of Energy’;s FuelEconomy.gov site. It licensed the 200 with the 295-horsepower and 262-pound-feet 3.6-liter Pentastar V6, 9-velocity automatic and all-wheel drive as receiving 18-miles-per-gallon city, 29-mpg highway and 22-mpg combined.

Last year’;s front-wheel drive 200 with a much less-potent model of the Pentastar was rated at 19-mpg city, 29-mpg highway and 22-mpg combined. That indicates that purchasers are acquiring a lot more energy and all-wheel drive traction at nearly no loss in economic system. Nonetheless, in contrast to existing, all-wheel drive sedan rivals, the Chrysler comes in the middle. The Ford Fusion with all-wheel drive with the 2.-liter EcoBoost 4-cylinder has 240 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque is somewhat down on energy but bests it in economic climate at 22-mpg city, 31-mpg highway and 25-mpg combined. The recent Subaru Legacy 3.6R loses in each metrics with 256 hp and 247 lb-ft and a rating of 18-mpg city, 25-mpg highway and twenty-mpg combined. Nevertheless, Subaru claims the subsequent generation with the exact same engine will boast 20-mpg city, 28-mpg highway and 23-mpg mixed. But these numbers are just estimates from the automaker at the minute, and they have not nevertheless been licensed by the EPA nevertheless.

The numbers for the 4-cylinder and front-wheel drive 200 drivetrains are not nevertheless accessible, but Chrysler has been promising the sedan gets an estimated 35-mpg highway with the 184-hp and 173-lb-ft Tigershark 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine. We won’;t know for confident right up until it really is licensed, but we’;ll hold you posted.
