Raising the Roof on Quality

May 15, 2014 - 1:10 PM - by madison
We know all the fun bits about the new for 2015 200, but what we're not so familiar with is the background hubbub at Sterling Heights that is being poured day in and out into ensuring the new 200 climbs out of the rental bin and into a driveway near you. Chrysler has LONG suffered for quality reasons, customers were endlessly unsatisfied and product flaws and deviations were more regular than not.



This sounds like a good time to meet the Quality Assurance Center at Sterling Heights. IF you guessed what the quality assurance center is up to, good for you did someone help with the definitions? Vehicles will be picked off the line at random and subjected to a gamut of auditing techniques from detailed 4D tech measurements, heating, cooling, fit and finish all the way through emissions...

The goal is to design each workstation so its impossible to make a mistake, explained Doug Betts, senior vice president of quality at Chrysler. The best expert on how to error-proof a specific assembly job is the person who does it every day thats why its so important to

The 2015 200 at Sterling Heights

Mar 18, 2014 - 1:22 PM - by madison
If there was one factory in the Chrysler portfolio that embodies the resilient up hill battle Chrysler has been fighting since 2008 it has to be the Sterling Heights facility. Slotted to be shuttered back in 2010, instead SH saw a $1 Billion investment into metrology, paint facility, body shop and new assembly line technology. As part of the $1 Billion CapEx Chrysler grafted an additional 2 million square feet to the facility.

Here is an in depth look at the facility and the assembly process of the 2015 Chrysler 200. Photo's are courtesy of Allpar.

This is the Sequencing center, a 450,000 square foot space with 19 available docks. When operating at full capacity Chrysler says the Sequencing Center will see 54 trucks unloaded daily delivering an assortment of 1,138 different parts totaling well over 1 million parts.




Here is center console assembly, World Class Manufacturing standards are supposed to improve installation efficiency. You can see here the pass through storage space made available by the new rotary shifter. Another benefit of doing away with a traditional floor shifter is that the console simply slides right in, instead of in the past where the console had to be maneuvered in. The time saving is minutes but it all adds up in aggregation.

Whats for 2015?

Jan 08, 2014 - 3:51 PM - by madison
So the 2015 Chrysler 200 leaked today, hence why I joined this little community, whats new and unique from the '14s? Some people are worried that the 2015 200 is simply a reskinned '14, lets put that to rest shall we....




  • The 2015 Chrysler 200 will be the industry's first mid size sedan to come standard with a nine speed auto. The same gear box found under your friendly neighborhood KL Jeep Cherokee, hopefully major lessons were learned from the Cherokee and we won't have to endure several months of software dealys because the 9 speed cant find 8th.
  • Also taken from the KL Cherokee is the AWD system with a disconnecting rear axle
  • The engines in the 2015 Chrysler 200 should be quite familiar, the tried and true Pentastar 3.6L V6 and the base line 2.4L Tigershark 4
  • A new Rotary Dial shift knob first seen on the RAM Rumble Bee from Goodwood.
  • New face showcases the future look of the Chrysler brand
  • 35 MPG expected


You might even venture to call the Chrysler 200 the Cherokee Sedan LOL

Aesthetically the 2015 200 is one of the best if not THE best looking vehicle to come from Chrysler in quite sometime. I'm quite in love with the rear, the front looks a little Dartish, and the side profile could be called a bit... [Read More]

2015 Chrysler 200 Leaked

Jan 08, 2014 - 10:47 AM - by AutoGuide.com


The 2015 Chrysler 200 has leaked revealing that the new sedan will be priced from $22,695 including delivery.

In the leak, the American automaker boasts that the 2015 Chrysler 200 will be the industrys first midsize sedan with a standard nine-speed automatic transmission. It is expected to get up to 35 mpg on the highway thanks to the transmission that can be mated to either the 2.4-liter Tigershark four-cylinder engine (184 hp, 173 lb-ft of torque) or the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine (295 hp, 262 lb-ft of torque).

Available as an option will be an all-wheel drive system thats first to deliver an automatic fully disconnecting rear axle to improve fuel economy by reducing parasitic loss when the all-wheel drive is not needed.

Finally, the nine-speed transmission can be shifted through a rotary dial for state-of-the-art electronic shifting.
