Chrysler 200 is designed to beat the Ford Fusion Feature by Feature
It has been always competitive with the Sedan family in the USA. After struggling through several years of financial snags Chrysler has finally woken on its feet and come up with the Chrysler 200. Now it has become vitally significant for the 200 with the new makeup to beat the Ford Fusion, the benchmark car in the sedan segment.Photo 1: CHRYSLER
As per the statement of Al Gardner, the President of Chrysler brand that they are playing the same game as Ford. The archetypical Asian rivals were considered to be the benchmark set for automakers and the Honda Accord, Toyota Camry models were considered just a few years ago as the standard bearers of the segment. Ford changed the concept obviously and Chrysler simply decided to give it back by redirecting it.
Al Gardner further stated that the designing and engineering crew from Chrysler simply broke down the Fusion with the aim of bettering it feature by feature. With the starting price of $21, 700 for the Chrysler 200, they further went one step ahead of Ford. So what is the reaction from Ford after so much of attention being paid to the Ford Fusion? Todd Soderquiest, the Fusion chief engineer said that they were flattered.Photo 2: Chrysler 200 is designed to beat the Ford Fusion Feature by Feature
