Chrysler to debut the 2011 200 Convertible at the Chicago Auto Show

Yesterday we brought you the news of new product reveals coming from the Dodge and Ram truck brand of the Chrysler Group at the Chicago Auto Show and today, Chrysler announced that they will use the Windy City show to formally introduce the 2011 Chrysler 200 Convertible.

The 2011 Chrysler 200 sedan is really just a handsomely refreshed 2010 Sebring sedan with new front and rear fascias, an improved interior and revised suspension – and Chrysler hasn’t avoided that fact. The outgoing Chrysler Sebring offered a sedan and convertible so it came as no surprise when Chrysler announced that there would be a topless Chrysler 200 and now we know that it will make its world debut when the 2011 Chicago Auto Show opens to the media.

Like the Chrysler 200 Sedan, the 200 Convertible shares styling with the previous Sebring Convertible between the wheels but in the front and back, the new droptop Chrysler sports the stylish new look of the 200 sedan. The 2011 200 Convertible does offer the painted retractable hardtop roof like we saw in the Sebring, but as the fad of the heavy retractable hardtop fades, the new 200 Convertible comes with a traditional cloth soft top.

In addition to the new exterior look, the 2011 Chrysler 200 Convertible will feature the same refined interior appointments that we have seen in the new 200 Sedan, reformatted into a coupe layout. Helping to give the open-air Chrysler 200 some more driving inspiration, the 2.4L world engine is joined by the 3.6L Pentastar V6, sending 283 horsepower to the front wheels via a 6-speed automatic transmission with manual shift control.

The 2011 Chrysler 200 Convertible comes with a starting price of $27,195 and if you are in the Chicago area between February 11th and 20th, stop by McCormick Place for a firsthand look at the refreshed and refined 200 Convertible.
