Just the Facts:
  • The 2011 Chrysler 200 S sedan starts at $26,790, including a $750 destination charge.
  • The 200 S convertible comes in at $32,490; both arrive at showrooms later this spring.

NEW YORK — The 2011 Chrysler 200 S sedan and convertible models debuted on Tuesday just ahead of the 2011 New York Auto Show press days. Both will arrive in showrooms later this spring.

The 2011 Chrysler 200 S sedan will start at $26,790, including a $750 destination charge. The 2011 Chrysler 200 S convertible will start at $32,490, including a $750 destination charge.

Both 200 S models come equipped with the 283-horsepower 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine linked to a six-speed automatic transmission. Look for it to achieve 19 mpg city/29 mpg highway EPA fuel economy ratings.

The 2011 Chrysler 200 S sedan costs $500 than a 2011 200 Limited with the optional V6 ($26,290). Similarly, the 2011 Chrysler 200 S convertible is $500 more than the 2011 Chrysler 200 Limited convertible, which starts at $31,990, and has the V6 as standard.

The S models are designed for customers who want "a little bit of attitude," said Chrysler in a statement.

To that end, the 2011 Chrysler 200 S sedan gets a front grille with a Chrysler winged badge with a black background; body-color mirrors and door handles; black-background headlights; 18-inch aluminum wheels with black detailing on the spokes and "S" badging. The cabin gets a perforated leather steering wheel, leather front seats with suede inserts and an embroidered "S" on the front headrests, a black headliner, suede door trim bolsters and a standard Boston Acoustic sound system.

The convertible model gets a power top and the same appearance package as the 200 S sedan.

    I don't know what edmonds has against Chrysler, but I think $500 is great for the monochrome looking and it does add attitude; unfortunately for edmunds, that's not all, Nicer wheels and upgraded sound system from boston acoustics (see what that costs at your local car stereo shop), oh and btw, Edmunds, you forgot to mentioned the upgraded sport suspension. So, your snarky snide comment about another 500 bucks, may need to be reconsidered.
