We can't yet share all the details on the 2015 Chrysler 200 sedan, but we can direct your attention to the image above, which was published by the boys at Jalopnik after Chrysler reportedly let it out by accident. As you can see, the new 200 will be a nicely styled piece of machinery.

According to leaked documentation, the 2015 Chrysler 200 will come with the buyer's choice of a 2.4-liter Tiger Shark four-cylinder engine with 184 horsepower and 173 pound-feet of torque or a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 boasting 295 horses and 262 lb-ft. Those ponies will be routed through a nine-speed automatic with a rotary gear selector, sending power to the front wheels. Alternatively, a high-tech all-wheel-drive system will be available that can electronically disconnect the rear axle, saving fuel.

Speaking of fuel efficiency, the 2015 200 will be able to achieve up to 35 miles per gallon on the highway, which is an impressive figure for this class. An on-sale date has yet to be announced, but the next 200 will start at $21,700 (plus $995 for destination) when it does finally hit dealerships.

      Looks great. I'm really digging the new Chrysler designs. The Jeep GC, the Durango, 300, and now this 200 all look really nice. Please now apply some of this magic on the dismal Avenger.

        Speculation is the avenger is going rwd based of a new Alfa platform.

      Clearly more images would be nice, but between this image, and the spyshots from a few weeks ago, I think this looks great. Has a very smooth, modern look to it.

      Yea I'm a Chrysler fan, actually a major big fan, and so I'm inclined to be positive on all things Chrysler. In fact, I maintain that I try hard to offer a pro-Chrysler perspective to those poor souls who maintain such an anti-Chrysler bias, that they cannot ever be objective, yet fill these pages with slanted, sometimes nasty. truly lacking of real wit, negative comments. I think it's important, as something of a journalistic public health service, to offer them a different opinion in hopes of broadening their thinking, stimulating rational thought and exposing for them to a diverse marketplace and fan base. Yes, there are people who love Chrysler for very logical, experiential and emotional reasons..listen, appreciate, respect. The Chrysler 200 is a vehicle that Chrysler needs badly to succeed in this market segment. I believe that a conservative styling decision was made to produce an attractive and luxurious mid-size product, without reaching too far in risky visual design territory, in an attempt to hit the "sweet spot" in the market segment with a car that excelled in engineering, content, features, safety and quality. I think what I read and see here of this 200 meets or exceeds those objectives.. Just as the new Jeep Cherokee took the road of bold and innovative for a calculated marketing reason, the 200 takes a calculated mainstream course to a whole new look for Chrysler. Although, from a styling perspective, it breaks little new ground in the segment, the 200 does bring much new and innovative under it's skin and that achievement will bring a great deal of interest and may I predict, sales from new customers to Chrysler. Fortunately, the last generation 200 did in fact, based on doubled retail sales, yet clearly transitionally with a smart redesign and big quality improvement, begin to attract and create a loyal customer base for this new 200. "Mission Chrysler 200" accomplished .... it would seem so far. Truly this is a major new product in the automotive marketplace and it will receive close scrutiny, anticipated rave reviews, accompanied by nitpicking flaws and an also anticipated knee jerk onslaught of negativity based on the aforementioned bias of the cloistered few. Critique away, it may not please everyone, but the objective and fair will acclaim the positive achievements and then leave it to the marketplace, as it always does, to make the final judgement on the new Chrysler 200. This Chrysler loyalist is comfortable in predicting a solid success for this 200. Is that not objective?

      Considering the 200 has as many comments as a post about the new Z06, I think the 200 is going to be a hit.

      This has to be the biggest gap in hp between trim levels I've ever seen!! 100hp difference??? This is how it should be. I hate when manufactures make two options like 20hp apart, what's the point?? I applaud them on this move

        Maybe 20-30 years ago. The only time today you see different motors with close power is when there's a difference in efficiency.

        I agree, it's good, but it's nothing new. The current 200 has the same engines - at least displacement wise. This 2.4 will be newer and stronger, slightly.

      Looks like Chrysler/Fiat has a home run with the new 200. Great looking vehicle inside and out, though the final proof lies with the driving experience. Hope it's a much better success in its class than the Dart was for the C-segment, which is a shame.

      They did good, Chrysler has been advancing by leaps and bounds since they merged and split with Mercedes. Better styling, interior quality and sold built vehicles with sound mechanics. Before they were making large good looking cars with under powered engines and poor transmissions. I wish they would bring the Magnum back I would be fist in line to purchase one this time just add a third row option and maybe air suspension option on a possible Chrysler version.

      I know you can't please everybody, but sooner or later EVERY manufacturer gets their influence (copies) someone else. Yes the C-pillar into decklid mimics an A-7 and the rear decklid/taillight design has an Infiniti M class look to it. How is this a bad thing? I think it is a MAJOR step forward with a sharp looking front end and an interior that appears to be a quality product and very well layed out. There will always be people who buy their Hondas and Toyotas no matter what. I feel this car can be a success if people keep an open buying mind, especially with the available equipment and technology that is offered

      Speaking as someone who hated the looks of the old 200, good job.

      how is this horrendously ugly? chrysler comes out with a great replacement for the previous model and all of a sudden everyone becomes a troll or hyper critical? rental king? guess what in japan they commonly rent nissans and toyotas...whatever the case this looks great imo. Allpar has bunch of higher res pics. that gave me a better idea what this looks like in all angles. for a midsize it looks big so I'm looking forward to seeing it the flesh.
