Chrysler Sebring: Preview – Not long ago, Chrysler shocked the automotive world with the 300 sedan. Its bold, standout styling not only left the previous 300M but also the competition in the dust and with a rear- or all-wheel-drive platform and available Hemi power, Chrysler effectively planted a stake deep into large sedan territory.
While it continues to enjoy the 300’s success, Chrysler is about to launch an assault on the mid-size market with a thoroughly revamped Sebring sedan. The nondescript styling of the 2006 model is replaced by a unique design that carries cues from both the 300 and the Crossfire roadster, the interior has been overhauled and can be fitted with luxurious features such as touch-screen navigation and rear DVD entertainment, and power choices range from an economical 172-horsepower four-cylinder to a 235-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 joined to a new six-speed transmission. As a package, it would appear that the new Sebring is poised to make a lasting impression on mid-size sedan shoppers.
Production of the 2007 Chrysler Sebring is currently under way, so look for the first examples to hit your town before year’s end. Base, Touring, and Limited trim levels will be available.
