    I currently drive a 2015 200C with the 3.6 AWD and I love it. It's true, you will not spin the tires at the line, but instead you grip and launch off. My car handles corners like a champ and delivers the power from the 3.6 more successfully to the ground. In the end, you have to ask yourself what you want. If you want to spin the tires, get FWD. I purchased the "C" because I wanted adaptive speed control, wood grain accents, and all the additional options that you can only get with the C. I added a spoiler and with the 19" look amazing. So just ask yourself, what do you really want? If you want the best fuel economy and comfort ride, go with FWD and smaller rims.

    BTW, I purchased my 2015 200C a year and a half ago for $19k and it only had 9k miles. I found one in Missouri and had it shipped to me. Don't be afraid to look out of state and have it shipped if from a dealership.

    ..and it will, you are correct.

    Imagine how much better an AWD vehicle with dedicated season tires will perform than a FWD one in any handling or traction scenario. It's why "sport sedans" are either RWD or AWD because weight transfers to the rear upon initial acceleration. AWD is a luxury, it's not necessary any more than having a V6 is necessary.

    The 200 would be even better if it's AWD system was RWD based - for performance, not so much economy.

    I have had 2 FWD 200's with V6's and one AWD one - also a RWD 2006 Chrysler 300C Hemi.
    "Black Knight" was my father's trucker CB handle.

    I have the 2015 200S AWD and I will say that it handles better in the rain than any other car I have ever owned. The AWD does make a big different when you have the right tires. I can do a hard take off in the rain and the car will not slip at all. Where-as other cars I have owned FWD and RWD have slipped like crazy. I have never put snow tires on my car in the winter and have never had traction problems. In my previous car a Chevey Colbalt SS supercharged I had to put snow tires on. The car has good power and S mode really makes a difference. What I don’t like is the 19” rims it came with. Bumps and holes in the road are way too harsh and with the low profile tires the rims get damaged too easy. I have already damaged the rims on a few occasions. I wish the car had the 18 inch rims with a thicker profile tire. I have the heated and cooled leather powered seats which is really nice and the dual Pan sunroof which I really don’t care for as it drops the roof headroom too much. I have the 9 speaker Alpine system which I am not really that impressed with. I plan on keeping this car for about another year or 2 and then are looking into getting a Jeep Cherokee. I’m willing to give up the power for a better drive on bad roads.
