New Chrysler 200 sedan teaser images – Click above for high-res image gallery

The slow tease of the Chrysler 200 took another bound with the revelation of a teaser site. The four-door sedan charged with erasing memories of the second-generation Sebring has a lot of work to do, and Chrysler is talking it up and rolling it out like it's sure it has something that will do the trick. With either a 2.4-liter four or the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6, it promises to be either miserly or powerful enough to please.

Yet it isn't only the Sebring's demons that this sedan needs to run over a cliff, for the lauded 200C show car car practically lurks in the shadows behind the one teased in the pic above. That show car, full-bodied and sensuous, showed what Chrysler really had on its mind and made everyone hope Chrysler would put it in people's driveways. While we know that concepts will take some trimming on the way to retail, we hope The Pentastar remembers we'd like a production 200C, not just a better Sebring, a car that was so far behind the curve that it would've warranted a clean-sheet were Chrysler in a better place financially. You can have a look at the latest details in our expanded gallery of high-res teaser photos below. Appreciate the tips, everyone!

      These teasers are getting very absurd... I'd like to find the person that started this trend and punch him in the face.

      For a new Lamborghini I totally understand, but for a refreshed Sebring?

      Seriously?!?

      Chrysler needs to go beyond what they are doing. 1.4L turbo + 2 mode hybrid with capacitors for the boost of power and requiring less batteries.

      I will wait final judgement until I see the whole thing.

      I don't know why, but this drives me a little crazy. We have this model which is a reskinned Sebring for 2011. Fine. But will the concept be turned into a production model anyway? We all saw the patent sketches which look like the concept. I have never known an automaker to patent concept car sketches, so I'm crossing my fingers.

      I know I'll get lynched for saying this but... I like it.

      Well, that's just great. NOW where am I going to drain my dishes? Sheesh!

        LOL! (But to be pedantic about it, the hood strakes went away last year anyway.)

        HAHAHAHA, that's awesome!!!!! It took me a second to get it.

        "Unfortunately this is just a facelifted Sebring. It's a letdown to everyone who thought Chrysler would have changed,"

        it's only a "letdown" to people who inexplicably thought they were going to design an entirely new car in less than a year. Get a grip on reality.

        "but this still has a 4-speed auto."

        only for fleet sales (IIRC.)

        Angel eyes on a Chrysler?

        Interesting.

        Looks like a Jaguar design. I love the 300, and they should have made this its little (but still bad a.. brother).

      It is a refreshed Sebring. Who cares?

      They really need to get the new model here, ASAP. American consumers aren't as dumb as they used to be.

        @ehisforadam,
        I agree that dealerships want cars they can actually sell and this 2011 200 is better than simply a carry-over of the 2010 Sebring. However, the issue is not so much people specifically shopping/comparing the looks of the 2010 Sebring against the 2011 200 but rather IF (not looking to debate whether or not the Sebring was a “good” car or not) the 2010 Sebring didn’t compete well against other models in its class then a slightly “refreshed” car isn’t likely going to compete well either.

        Hopefully the 2011 Chrysler 200 will do sufficiently well until an all-new model arrives.

      What I see so far looks just as bloopy (i.e., BAD) as the Sebring, so they might as well just keep calling it that... it's like when Ford went all "500" on us, and then came back around when they finally had a car worth calling the Taurus again.
