  • 2013 Chrysler 200 Sedan

    The current Chrysler 200 sedan and convertible may be the best automotive example of the time-honored cliche, “we did the best we could with what we had to work with.” Though the Chrysler 200’s sheet metal, interior and chassis may be updated, underneath, the car is remarkably similar to its predecessor, the Chrysler Sebring. While the 200 has managed to shed some of the Sebring’s rental-car stigma, it’s not what anyone would consider class-leading. That’s about to change with the introduction of the 2014 Chrysler 200, according to Wards Auto (via World Car...

    Even though the 2012 Dodge Avenger R/T isn't as R/T as some other dodges--it just uses a standard Pentastar V-6 for motivation--it's still a significant upgrade over the stock Avenger, and judging by the car's presence on the floor of the New York Auto Show, people will notice it on the street...

  • Chrysler Sebring

    As Chrysler pushes forward during its bankruptcy period and prepares for its new face and alliance with Fiat, many are wondering what will come along for the ride and what will be left behind. News today from within Chrysler reveals that the Chrysler Sebring and Dodge Avenger, as oft-maligned as they are, will be sticking around. Neither of the two sedans are going to win any beauty pageants, and sales have absolutely plummeted, charting just under 7,000 units so far this year - down 80% from 2008's figures. But in an interview with Edmunds, Chrysler spokesman Rick Deneau said, "We definitely...

  • Chrysler could cut top-end Avenger and Sebring

    Cutting models while adding value to existing mid-range trims could be the new tactic at Chrysler as it fights to regain sales and stability in the turbulent market. The changes are wrapped up in a plan called "Fight Back" that the carmaker is rolling out to parts suppliers this week, and things are set to kick off with a realignment of the Dodge Avenger and Chrysler Sebring lines. What the new fighting strategy means is that the Avenger and Sebring may lose their top trim levels while some of the features that had defined them are shifted into what were previously the mid-range models...
