Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is looking to at least defend its midsize-sedan market turf with the new Chrysler 200 model, now rolling into U.
S. dealerships, an executive here says.
The new model offers all-wheel drive for the first time and is available in four trim levels, with base prices ranging from $21,700 to $25,995, not including $995 for shipping and delivery.
AWD is not widely available in the midsize sedan segment, with the Ford Fusion and Subaru Legacy the only non-luxury models already offering the feature.
Despite its inviting base price, a fully optioned-out top-of-the-line 200C with a V-6 and AWD could top out at about $38,000, says Andy Love, a senior marketing manager.
