A preliminary configurator for the 2015 Chrysler 200 is already up and greeting Internet visitors. The totally re-envisioned sedan that we got to know in our Deep Dive starts with an LX base trim for $22,695, which comes out to an MSRP of $21,700 plus $995 for destination. That number will get you entry to a party that comes with keyless entry, ambient LED lighting inside, a five-inch Uconnect touschcreen system with Bluetooth, a six-speaker stereo, eight-way power driver's seat, safety features like brake assist and an electronic parking brake and eighteen-inch wheels on all-season tires.
The features list isn't yet broken down by model, but including destination, the other three trims retail for $24,250 for the Limited, $25,990 for the S and $26,990 for the C. All-wheel drive adds $4,200 on the S and the C.
You can build an LX pretty quickly because there aren't many options. There are two interior choices, black or black/linen, five exterior color options, and just two choices after that: you can opt for the $495 five-inch Uconnect system that adds features like voice command and a rearview mirror with a microphone, and an engine block heater for $95.
Roll your mouse over the S trim with AWD, things get started at $29,690. Black is the only interior color option but you get three more exterior colors to choose from - one of which, Lunar White Tri-Coat, adds $595. The Options page gets a few more tabs, with check boxes for interior, exterior, powertrain and packages showing up. We didn't click everything, but the Uconnect 8.4 package with navigation added $2,290, the leather trimmed ventilated sport seats threw on $995, the dual-pane panoramic sunroof was $1,495, the Comfort Group ($795) and Navi Sound Group ($1,495) were already chosen and the 19-inch wheels on all-season tires were another $695. That put us at $35,165 out the door for a nicely equipped, if not fully loaded, 200 S. If the driving experience can match what Chrysler's thrown at its exterior and technology, well, there could be a bright future ahead.
