Company’s management announced that this model will end its production soon, so we can presume that 2017 Chrysler 200 will be the last model of this 4-door sedan. This model was originally launched in 2010, and we already saw two generations of it. Original model lasted only 4 years, and it was redesigned in 2014. However, second generation will be in production even less than the original, since company announced its discontinuation in near future. Since 2017 Chrysler 200 will probably be the last year model, we don’t expect to see any changes. It will continue in the same manner as 2016 year model.

As we already mentioned, 2017 Chrysler 200 will come with the same characteristics as 2016 year model. Changes are not expected.

2017 Chrysler 200 discontinuation
As we already mention, it is official that this model will be discontinued soon. This announcement was released in January. Main reason for this decision are not slow sales. Since company has limited production capacities, management wants to make room for the upcoming crossover/SUV. Not only that 2017 Chrysler 200 will be discontinued, but also some other models, like Dodge Dart for example.
