The Mopar brand had plenty to show off at the Chicago Auto Show (CAS) in Chicago, Illinois, Feb. 8-17.
Building on the modified vehicle initially showcased at NAIAS, Mopar has added even more quality parts and accessories to showcase the 2015 Chrysler 200 for the Chicago Auto Show. The Mopar-modified 2015 Chrysler 200 exhibited at the CAS uses the Chrysler 200S as its starting point, then adds from there to make the vehicle even more original and unique. The exterior of the modified Chrysler 200 stands out and shines bright, thanks to a striking Lunar White Pearl Tri-coat color.
To give it a sportier feel, it has been equipped with a body package that includes side sills, a chin spoiler, and a rear fascia valance. To add to the look, upper and lower Mopar grille textures have been added, along with unique aluminum exhaust tips. Complementing the exterior look, the interior is enriched with premium white leather seats accented with bronze stitching, with bronze accents also highlighting the bezels and the steering wheel. Mopar floor mats also augment the interior.
The customized Chrysler 200 on display at the CAS is powered by a 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine that puts best-in-class 295 horsepower as well as 262 lb.-ft. of torque to the Satin Lite Bronze 19-inch multi-spoke wheels. In addition, a menu of more than 60 additional Mopar parts and accessories will be offered as soon as the car becomes available at dealerships in the second quarter, with in excess of 100 products by the end of the calendar year.
