Hi, I’ve had my 2017 Ltd platinum for about a year now. Approaching 60kmi, and my warranty is almost out.
That being said; I love this car for what it is, but do not like my 2.4l or the Tran.

I can either eat the negative equity I’ve incurred (close to 7gs) or pay it off and make it fast.
How feasible is this? I haven’t seen a single eng/Tran swap on these everywhere I’ve looked. I know working with the gear shifter might limit transmissions I have access too. I’d be redoing my suspension as well, I just wonder what would be the easier routes if any, what would the frame in this car be able to handle and so on.
Tia!

With the associated electronics that run everything on most new cars, an engine swap on a new 200 would be a task of getting most things to coordinate with all the computers and sensors.
In my opinion, you would lose time ( money ) and the costs ( money ) of replacing many items in any attempt to get the entire system to communicate with the on board computerized electronics.
Can it be done ? Of course, with enough money and time, anything can be done.
You would surely lose more then 7 thousand in that quest, and the car would be worthless afterward. Valuable only to you.

You might get a bit better driveability and shift quality by updating you PCM and TCM to the latest and greatest software version:
The TCM update is addressed in TSB # 21-035-18A which I could not find an online reference for.

After the updates, have them realign/reset the PROXI configuration and perform a Quicklearn.

Mine now shifts as smooth as butter since the updates and I am happy.
The good old days of Hot Rodding cars is now extremely complex and difficult.
It would be more sensible to find a V6 200C or 200S.
