2011 Chrysler 200 – Click above for high-res image gallery

Not long after Chrysler announced pricing for the full host of updated 2011 Dodge products, the automaker has priced its own reworked Pentastar-badged products – the Sebring 200 sedan and Town & Country minivan. Both vehicles feature vastly better interiors than the models they replace, as well as the automaker's smooth new 3.6-liter V6 under the hood.

The 200 indeed has its work cut out for it, since the Sebring it replaces was one of the most poorly received vehicles in Chrysler's lineup. Four trim levels are available – LX, Touring, Limited and S – with pricing starting at $19,995 for the base model, $21,995 for the Touring and $24,495 for the Limited. Chrysler tells us that the S trim will arrive shortly after the rest of the 200 lineup, and official pricing for that top-rung trim has not been released at this time.

Chrysler's bread-and-butter Town & Country now enters its 21st year of production, preparing to do battle with the newly reworked Toyota Sienna and Honda Odyssey. Pricing starts at $30,995 for the base Touring model, and rises to $33,995 for the Touring L and $39,495 for the decked-out Limited. We're eager to get some seat time in the refreshed minivan to see if it can once again regain its place as the family-hauler sales leader.

Both of the updated 2011 models will be available at dealers in the coming months, and we'll be hatching our first driving impressions in the not-too-distant future. For the full details, follow the jump for Chrysler's press blast.

Note: All prices include the respective destination charges – $750 for the 200 and $835 for the Town & Country.

      Shades of the now defunked Crossfire--They had a good thing going--but they failed to follow thru

      I do NOT want anything to do with Obama Motors. I will not buy, with MY money any Government run car company. Let them ALL go the way of Pontiac.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Please tell which manufacturer you then prefer to support that does not take any form of government subsidy, US or home country?

      "Pricing starts at $30,995 for the base Touring model, and rises to $23,995 for the Touring L and $39,495 for the decked-out Limited."

      don't you guys mean pricing starts at $20,995?
        • 4 Years Ago
        Probably not since the current one starts at $26K

      What does LX stand for? Low Xpectations?
        • 4 Years Ago
        What does LX have to do with anything in this post? The 200 is the remodeled Sebring, built on the FWD JS platform. The Town & Country is a FWD minivan.

        The LX is a RWD/AWD platform under totally different cars (Charger, 300 and Challenger so far).

        • 4 Years Ago
        I was referring to the LX trim level offered on the 200.
      • 4 Years Ago
      with all of who have been out of work for several years , those prices are theft by fraud.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Still no shots of the interior? Bad sign. At least that much improved exterior will lesson the feeling of being cheated by such a dated crap interior (assuming not many real changes have occurred).
        • 4 Years Ago
        Except we can see that changed HAVE happened in the Avenger and Grand Caravan. Both of which have platform mates-the Town and Country and the 200. Comparing the 2011 Grand Caravan interior to the 2011 Odyssey and Sienna there's a huge difference. Does the Honda or Toyota have a soft touch dashboard? Does the Honda or Toyota offer something that doesn't have a million cut-lines where parts can become loose over time to cause squeaks and rattles?
        • 4 Years Ago
        yes. really.


        yuck. yuck. yuck. Chrsyler's where GM was pre new malibu, trying to bring tired models up to the snuff of 3 or so years ago while the ball keeps moving. I fully understand nothing else can be done given their predicament, but i doubt the 200 is going to have some amazing class competitive interior
        • 4 Years Ago
        Although no photographs of the Chrysler 200 have officially been released, I suspect the interior of the 200 is very similar to the revamped 2011 Dodge Avenger.
        • 4 Years Ago
        I think you'll be surprised when chrysler finally does release interior shots for the 200.
        Just look at how well they did with the Avenger.

        I like how his comment is down rated but seriously, is anyone who reads this site ever going to consider buying a car that looks like this? I should hope not.
      • 4 Years Ago
      So many haters and trolls on Chrysler threads at Autoblog.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Sure hope those guys they showed on TV smoking pot and drinking had something to do with building this new auto.

      As an old fart, I recall the days when Fiats stalled and seized on the highways of America. I cannot even imagine that the media is excited about Fiat's takeover of Chrysler. Go ahead Gen X and Y, ignore your parents and buy one of these buckets of crap.

        • 4 Years Ago
        Does anyone know what that "NEW" tag means on the current 2010 T&C?

        Also, what are there no dates for the 2011? When can I go to a dealer and buy one?
        I admit, we have a big family, we really enjoy this vehicle...
      • 4 Years Ago
      This model line needs to die a fiery death already.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Really? That's all you gotta say? Let me guess, you will use the "lipstick on a pig" line next. Amateur.

        Why does everyone has to be a Internet tough guy? This also goes for the stupid STR and LX comments.
