The Full Review of Chrysler Sebring Convertible 2012
Chrysler Sebring convertible is for the people who appreciate vehicles that combine style, performance and spaciousness.
Chrysler is set to debut the 2012 200 Convertible at the New York Auto Show in March, but through the magic of the Interwebs, the first crop of official images has already leaked out. The new 200 sedan isn't a bad-looking car, and while the convertible's design isn't the most attractive creation (that rear end still looks plenty awkward), it's certainly better than the outgoing Sebring.
Aside from the deletion of a fixed roof, expect the Chrysler 200 Convertible to be largely the same as its sedan counterpart, with interior refinement and engine choices all being carried over. This means that both the 2.4-liter inline-four and 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 should be underhood, and the end result is a cabriolet that, while better than the model it replaces, certainly won't take your breath away.
2012 2013 Chrysler Sebring models offer different engines as well:
* Sebring Sedan models come standard with a 2.7-liter, V6 24-valve Flexible fuel engine capable of 200 horsepower at 5,800 RPM, and an available AutoStick Driver-Interactive Transaxle Shifter.
* Sebring Coupe LX comes with a standard 2.4-liter 16-valve SOHC 4-cylinder engine produces 147 horsepower at 5,500 rpm.
* Sebring Coupe Lxi is equipped with a 3.0-liter V6 that generates 200 horsepower at 5,500 rpm.
* On the Sebring Convertible models, an available 2.7-liter DOHC 24-valve V6 Flexible Fuel engine has been engineered to minimize noise without sacrificing performance for smooth operation at 200 horsepower.
