2011 Chrysler 200 Convertible Preview

Follow Nelson

Yesterday a handful of images of the 2011 Chrysler 200 Convertible leaked onto the Web, and today, Chrysler has let loose its full bounty. Complete details and a full gallery of the not-a-Sebring 'vert await.

If you're familiar with the standard sedan variant of the 200, you already know what to expect. A standard 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine with an optional 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6, Touring and Limited trims, with the standard infotainment and convenience fare.

There are a few differences, however. Later this year, a 200 Convertible S model will become available, though Chrysler hasn't disclosed any official details on what that means. We suspect it may be a sportier model presaged by the Moparized 200 seen in Detroit this week.

The biggest difference, of course, is the drop top--and here you'll have a choice. Either soft cloth or retractable steel are available. Both can be opened remotely with the key fob.

The 2011 Chrysler 200 Convertible hasn't yet received an on-sale date, but we expect it to arrive before summer.

  1. Yawn.
    Looks like the type of car fat, boring people from Ohio will rent when they feel like being a bit crazy while visiting California.
    Anyone want to take bets on how long it will be before General Motors bights the dust again? What a waste of tax payer money.

  2. Aaron, please don't make ignorant comments. This article is about Chrysler. What does that have to do with General Motors?
    The new CHRYSLER 200 may not be for me but I can accept that some people will find it appealing.

  3. Hey hey...I rented a Sebring convertible once and to be honest it was very nice. It was quiet and dry with the top (cloth) up...much as any passenger car, and the top was easy to put down. My 23 year old son wanted to drive it as much as me. Got good mileage on a 800 mile round trip and I would buy a new 200 in a second if I was looking. I am no old geezer either.

  4. The new 200 is every bit as nice as any other convertible on the market today in its' price class. My neighbor has a 2009 Volvo Retractable hardtop which is quite nice, but it cost about 46K. It is not that nice! I too rented a 2010 Sebring Convertible for a week while my SUV was in the body shop and I had no complaints about it. My 19 year old son was crazy about the car and was always wanting to play with the top. It was a retractable hardtop as well and it is fun to watch the ballet the top goes through whether it is going up or down.

  5. I'm no fan of much of what this administration has done, but the auto bailouts made sense.
    As for the 200 convertible, looks darn good to me.
