So the Chrysler 100 is based off of the Dodge Dart. The Dodge Dart is a pretty affordable little vehicle. It starts at $15,995 and goes up to $22,495 for the top of the line model.
I was trying to figure out what you'd get from the top trim Dodge Dart compared to the entry-level Chrysler 100.
The Dodge Dart comes with a seven-inch "reconfigurable instrument cluster display," fog lamps, active grille shutters and premium accent stitching. As well as 18-inch alloys, sport suspension, more aggressive front fascia, dual exhaust, unique seat leather and a heated steering wheel.
It also gets a 2.4-liter Tigershark four-cylinder engine with 184 horsepower and 171 pound-feet of torque.
We will have to see what a base 100 will get you and cost you.
Best of luck to Chrysler if they are attempting to unseat the Corolla or the Civic. I would hope that they can outdo the sales of the Jetta though. I feel that VW vehicles are really boring and generic. The styling of the Chrysler 100 should be enough to surpass the Jetta. The rest of the competition is pretty stiff.
