The Chrysler 200 completes its production with no successor yet in sight


The Chrysler 200 model 2017 will be the last in the dealers.

The Chrysler 200 has been discontinued officially. As reported the press of Detroit, the factory in Sterling Heights, Michigan, has stopped production of the mid-sized sedan. Which coincides in time with the news, also this month, the start of the manufacturing of the MPV Pacifica in the canadian plant in Windsor.

the death of The current 200 is something that I knew from a long time ago, the poor results of sales of the sedan through FCA in north America seemed to have no solution, just like his brother on the range Dodge the Dart. Despite an attractive design and a policy of prices fairly aggressive in the last few years.

The us and canadian markets are also living the fever of the segments SUV and crossover. What affects, as in Europe, those segments more traditional look as well as their customers migrate to other types of models.


The Michigan plant will receive the new RAM 1500.

The 200 model 2017 will be the last that americans are in the dealership, at least for now, as FCA is still looking for a partner to develop a substitute for these two models, because they are not willing to develop them alone.

For the moment, the all-new Chrysler 200 2017 will depart for a price quite attractive, a little bit over $ 22,000, a few 20.620 euro, and the latest range that will be available at dealerships will be only in the finishes highest.

With respect to the plant of Sterling Heights, to replace the 200, will be deeply renewed to be able to welcome the production of the next generation of the Ram 1500, although it is also rumored the possibility that will assemble a new model of Jeep, with a view to 2018. For the moment, the refurbishment for the production lines, which include new facilities for paint and even a new test track, it will take a year to complete and will cost to FCA around 1,480 million $ .
