Re: Chrysler July 2012 Sales up 12.6%
I drove my brothers 2012 Chrysler 200 demo to work today. It has 1100 miles on it, and has the 3.6 283HP V6.
I reset the display to see what i could average on my commute. Using some very basic hypermiling techniques i had little trouble pushing it into the high 30's. This engine responds to hypermiling pretty well.
I think a big reason that the 200 is selling well is that Chrysler is putting close to $4K on the hood.
BTW, when it comes to economy, the 2.4 is a slug.
