Spied! 2015 Chrysler 200

Automakers go to great lengths to hide upcoming models before they are ready to present them to the world. Most development work is done indoors, and testing is done in remote locations away from prying eyes and cameras. Often when a prototype is caught on film, the vehicle is heavily disguised.

Photographers, however, caught a glimpse of the newly re-engineered #Chrysler 200 completely undisguised, during a private marketing shoot featuring the mid-sized sedan. It's scheduled to be officially revealed at the 2014 Detroit auto show, but sly photographers got the jump on Chrysler early.

News outlets have some information about the upcoming 2015 Chrysler 200, but most of it is under embargo at this time. Sources tell us that it will feature LED lighting, stop-start, active grill shutters, electronic parking brake, electric steering and most of Chrysler's line-up of fuel saving technologies. The new model is expected to have little in common with it's predecessor.

Sharing a platform with the new Jeep Cherokee and the Dodge Dart, this front-wheel drive will also benefit from the nine-speed transmission pioneered by the Cherokee earlier this year. It's also expected to arrive with a choice of two engines- a 3.6-litre V6 or Chrysler's Tigershark 2.4-litre inline four-cylinder.

Originally built to fit between compact sedans and mid-size sedans in Chrysler's line-up, the 2015 Chrysler 200 appears to be moving up to fit squarely into the mid-sized segment.

In October, Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne said that production will not begin until the second quarter of 2014. The company is hoping the new model will invigorate sales of the Chrysler 200, which were relatively flat this year. The current model starts at around $22,000 in the U.S. and it's heir should be similarly priced due to the competitive nature of the mid-sized market.
