2015 Chrysler 200 EPA-Rated at 23/36 MPG With 2.4-Liter I-4

Just recently, the first batch of EPA fuel economy ratings were revealed for the 2015 Chrysler 200 equipped with the Pentastar V-6 and all-wheel drive. While those numbers are close to the outgoing model's figures, the same can't be said for the 200 sedan equipped with the I-4, which improves its ratings across the board.

The 2015 Chrysler 200 with the standard 2.4-liter Tigershark MultiAir I-4 achieves 23/36/28 mpg city/highway/combined. Compare those numbers to the 2014 200 sedan with the six-speed automatic, which achieved 20/31/24 mpg, and you see a 5-mpg gain on the highway. The improvements can be attributed to the new nine-speed automatic, which comes standard on all models. For those who think the 2.4-liter engine's 184 hp and 173 lb-ft of torque isn't enough, the Pentastar 3.6-liter V-6 should do the trick with 295 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque on tap. Front-wheel-drive V-6 models also see improvements with an EPA-rated 19/32/23 mpg, representing a 3-mpg improvement on the highway and a single mpg more on the combined cycle.

As previously reported, the 2015 Chrysler 200 equipped with the Pentastar V-6 and optional all-wheel drive acheives 18/29/22 mpg. The all-wheel drive and V-6 combo, which is only available on the sportier 2015 Chrysler 200S and more upscale 2015 Chrysler 200C, achieves nearly the same fuel economy numbers as the outgoing Chrysler 200 sedan. The old 2014 200 sedan, which was motivated by a Pentastar 3.6-liter V-6 mated to a six-speed automatic, is rated at 19/29/22 mpg. © Provided by MotorTrend

Should these improvements be enough to draw you into a Chrysler showroom, the 2015 Chrysler 200 has been priced starting at $22,695 including destination.
