Next Chrysler 200 to Set the Styling Tone

The existing Chrysler 200 has started showing its age. Ideal then that the 2014 MY replacement will incorporate the brand's new styling language.

There's no question the current Chrysler 200 is a bit long in the tooth in both design and overall vehicle dynamics. While its 2012 refresh was certainly an improvement, the midsize sedan is still lagging behind the competition in just about every sector. But that's all about to change, according to Chrysler design chief Ralph Gilles. Gilles spoke with Wards Auto at the Detroit Auto Show last week and gave a few, albeit interesting, tid bits about what to expect with the next 200.

Nothing too specific was mentioned, only stating that the new car "shares no surface language with any previous Chrysler we've ever seen....we are deviating from where we are today, completely. It's a very different feeling and look." With the arrival of an all-new 200 for 2014, its corporate cousin, the Dodge Avenger, will be given the axe. It'll eventually be replaced by an all-new model at some point, but the 200 will likely debut first.
