My & Your Ideal Chrysler Lineup 2.0​


Feedback, Thoughts Wanted!

My first non-GM ideal lineup in this new rendition of the series, this is one of the most exciting brands to work on IMO. It's got lots of holes, but a fantastic halo vehicle to build off of, and has always had tremendous potential. So here it is...

200 $26,900-$69,470
Platform: JS II
Engine: 205 HP 2.4L, 290 HP 3.6L, 430 HP turbo 3.6L, 2.4L/Electric Hybrid
While the Sebring was nicely updated as the 200, an all-new 200 comes out, introducing bold American style and taking some styling cues from the 300. While the base model features solid power from the 2.4L powering the front wheels, choose the Limited or S model and gain a 290 horsepower Pentistar V6 and all-wheel-drive. An eight speed automatic is standard across the board with hefty aluminum shift paddles on the steering wheel. Satin nickle and multiple choices of wood help accent the standard leather-wrapped dash and interior while the the Uconnect allows you to wirelessly connect your smart phone to your car for media, calls, voice texting, voice emails, and much more. Another feature is the ability to download your media and save your contacts onto the build-in hard drive, while being able to also download your favorite Android-market apps for use when parked. Access the web, check the weather, and turn your car into a mobile 4G hotspot with the Uconnect.
SRT-6 version gains standard AWD, sport seats, aggressively-tuned suspension, growling exhaust tone, stylish ground effects, and quicker steering.

300 $39,995-$81,450
Platform: LY
Engine: 320 HP 3.6L DI, 390 HP 6.4L HEMI, 540 HP turbo 6.4L HEMI, 3.6L/electric hybrid
During its MCE, the 300 received some general exterior updates, however the interior saw a larger update. While much of the general design remained the same, upgrades included suede and leather wrapped dash, doors, and seats. The infotainment center was replaced with the IMM system, while the standard suspension was a three-setting adjustable setup allowing for Comfort, Sport, and Sport+. In Sport+, the stability control system is tuned to its most drift-friendly setting, a butterfly valve in the exhaust opens up for a more authoritative tone, and the steering is quickened slightly for better reflexes. The SRT-8 drops in the most powerful production HEMI yet, producing a whopping 540 turbocharged horses, the option of a six speed manual or eight speed automatic, a retuned suspension, massive Brembo carbon ceramic brakes, heavily-bolstered sport seats, and alcantara touches throughout the cabin are among the many SRT-8 specific upgrades that set this sedan up as one of the great luxury performance sedans around.

Imperial $68,998-$93,250
Platform: LWB LY
Engine: 390 HP 6.4L HEMI, 440 HP 6.4L HEMI, 6.4L/electric hybrid
The Imperial takes Chrysler up-market even further, takings on the likes of the A8 and Equus. A rear-drive sedan, it plays the same sort of game the Equus plays - offering plenty of luxury and features while undercutting the big luxury makers of Audi, Mercedes, BMW, and Lexus. This massive four-seat sedan gives off the typical Chrysler bold, truly American style inside and out. Meanwhile, leather, a multitude of wood and metal finish options, the most advanced Uconnect yet, and lots of features such as adaptive cruise, self-leveling xenon projectors, and the new Chrysler CAS system - standing for Continual Adjust Suspension - that will read the road and driver input at a rate of over 4,000 times a second to allow the vehicle to stay flat and absorb road imperfections combine to make this vehicle a real threat to the large premium foreign brands.

Firepower $119,995-$189,495
Platform: Viper
Engine: 620 HP turbo 6.4L HEMI
Essentially like the concept-car.

700 $48,495-$61,995
Platform: ML
Engine: 320 HP 3.6L DI, 390 HP 6.4L HEMI, 440 HP 6.4L HEMI, 6.4L/electric hybrid
Based on the ML chassis that underpins the already fantastic Grand Cherokee, this vehicle has the Mercedes ML squarely in its sights, as well as the likes of the X5 and Q5. This midsize luxury crossover offers distinctly Chrysler style, proudly showing off its bold American design. Clearly differentiated from its Jeep and Dodge siblings, this crossover offers lots of high-end features and materials to cater to its high-paying customers. And while the X5 may be the better dance partner for the corners, the 700 should not be considered a slob in that area - it does, however, trump the BMW in luxury, comfort, and style.

actually I like the lineup, but you could add the Barracuda for good measure....

What I envision Chrysler is, is more of a premium Cadillac/Lexus/Mercedes level brand... with that vision in mind, I'm not sure the Barracuda - as much as I love that car - would fit well in that lineup. Also feel free to post your own lineup if you see changes you'd like to make or add/subtract. :)

$65,000- 3.3T, 350 hp/350 lb-ft | 8AT (Imperial, Imperial AWD)

Firepower- luxury supercar competing with the 911, Vantage, R8. Add 8K to all prices for the roadster version. A Viper-powered model, if it's more powerful than the blown Hemi listed below, would be the SRT10 and what's listed as the SRT8 below would simply be the S or Super S in name.

$42,000- 3.3T, 350 hp/350 lb-ft | 9AT (T&C Turbo AWD)

Aspen- large luxury SUV competing with the Q7, GX, LR4. Add 2K to the V-6 and V-8 for 4WD. The Aspen is based on the Durango but has a totally different exterior, interior, the Grand Cherokee's finest 4WD system if so equipped, and is retuned for a unique driving experience. It's also larger.
$43,000- 3.6L, 305 hp/260 lb-ft | 8AT (Aspen)
$50,000- 5.7L, 420 hp/420 lb-ft | 8AT (Aspen C)

That pretty much covers it. I may come back later to update it with hybrids, diesels, and EVs as I see fit but this is good enough for starters.

I think Chrysler has one of the best lineups of any maker they just need to sort out their quality issues. I'll add the Imperial at the top and shrink the 300 (becomes midsize) and add coupe and wagon and shrink the 200 (becomes small) and add coupe and wagon, and move the 200 to RWD platform.

Those prices are about double (on the low end price) what a Chrysler is worth.
