Like a company beaming over its new prized model, Chrysler is putting a lot of its eggs in the basket of the new 200 sedan. That’s how much it hopes the redesigned model will get over with the public after mercifully ending the Sebring’s run.
So, with an all-new 200 rekindling new hope for Chrsyler, the American brand is set to unleash the full-court press on the new midsize sedan , and that includes an aftermarket program courtesy of Mopar.
The model that’s being touted in the Mopar guise is actually a 200S, and it features a Lunar White Pearl Tri-coat exterior. If fancy and classy can go together, this color certainly does a good job at highlighting the 200’s impressive new looks.
Not only that, Mopar’s accessory list for the 200S also includes a host of exterior and interior goodies, highlighted by a graphics package, a bicycle-hitch receiver, white leather seats, bronze contrast stitching, Autonet WIFI and ambient lighting, among a smorgasbord of new digs, all of which you can check out after the jump.
No performance upgrades were given to the Mopar-tuned 200S, but considering how Chrysler is trying to establish the 200 as the new "face" of its lineup, keeping it in its current mechanical guise — a 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine that produces 295 horsepower and 355 lb-ft of torque — is important to elucidate the 200’s appeal to the public.
