2019 Chrysler 200 Powertrain Options
What we personally like about the upcoming 2019 Chrysler 200 is its drivetrain options. There are two available engines, and the customers can choose between performance and fuel-efficiency. If you are more of a “fuel saver” person, than the base 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine is the right choice. This unit bursts 185 HP and 175 lb-ft of torque. The fuel economy of this engine is 23 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway.
An optional engine is a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 that gives an output of 295 HP and 262 lb-ft of torque. This V6 mill brings more power. However, fuel economy is 18 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway.
Furthermore, with both engines, a 9-speed automatic transmission is available. This engine is very powerful and it will accelerate in time of 5.7 sec from zero to 60 miles, while to 100 mph takes 14, 3 sec. Top speed is governor limited to 121mph.
