Chrysler offers three models in 2013: the 200 and 300 sedans, and the Town & Country minivan.
The 200 debuted in 2011 as a replacement for the Sebring. The 200 is available as either a sedan or a four-seat convertible with a hard- or soft-top. Like most cars in this segment, four-cylinder and V-6 power are offered, but if it were up to us we would go with the 283-hp V-6 which brings the six-speed automatic transmission with it and gets good gas mileage considering its power.
Up next are the 300 and 300C full-size sedans (the 300C is the more luxurious model of the two). Last year, a new eight-speed automatic was added for V-6 models that helps to push highway mpg all the way up to 31, impressive for a sedan of this size. Rear-wheel drive is standard, while all-wheel drive is optional.
There is also a high-performance SRT8 trim that gets a 470-hp, 6.4-liter V-8.
The final car in Chrysler’s stable is the Town & Country minivan which seats seven passengers across three-rows. The Town & Country, which like the rest of the lineup was redesigned in 2011, offers a good blend of premium appointments and family friendly features, topped off by second-row seats which can fold completely into the floor. It also comes with more standard features than most minivans, including leather upholstery, automatic climate control, a DVD entertainment system, and a backup camera.
