Car and Driver: Cool It Now: Chrysler 300S and 200S Alloy Editions Are New Additions

Recommended Posts

2016 Chrysler 300S and 200S


The 200 may be going the way of the dodo, but that doesn’t mean Chrysler’s not going to squeeze some more life out of its mid-size backmarker. Along with the beefcake 300, the 200 is getting the appearance-package treatment. This one’s called Alloy. As one might expect, it’s metallic in nature.


2016 Chrysler 200S Alloy Edition


On the 200S, going alloy nets you a choice of five exterior colors: Gloss Black, Black Forest Green Pearl, Redline Tri-coat Pearl, Granite Crystal Metallic, and Bright White. The colors have been chosen to best work with the dark bronze, gloss black, and titanium accents that give the package its name. Inside choices are limited to black cloth or leather, with caramel accent stitching and a black/caramel S embroidered in the seat. Titanium and piano-black finishes round out the treatment. If you’d like, the optional Mopar exterior package adds side-sill extensions, a chin spoiler, and a new rear valence.

On the 300S, opting for Alloy gets you dark-bronze-finished 20-inch wheels (19-inch on AWD models), titanium-plated exhaust tips and a wing badge to match, a dark-bronze 300S badge, and gloss-black window trim, headlights, and taillight accents. Exterior colors are the same as those available on the 200S Alloy Edition. If improved handling prowess simply must be part of the deal, Chrysler’s offering a “performance-tuned” suspension with stiffer springs and bushings, as well as a set of Goodyear Eagle F1 tires. Those who opt for the 363-hp 5.7-liter Hemi with their suspension package also get stiffer anti-roll bars. Hemi customers get unique side sills and a decklid spoiler.


Going Alloy will cost you an extra $495 on a 200S and $995 over the price of a 300S. We dig the way the package works on the 300, adding a hint of classy menace to the car, but on the 200’s smile/frown grille, a hint of lazy SEMA-ness shines through. Then again, doing just about anything to a 200 that smacks of customization tends to bring to mind the air-conditioned nightmare of the Las Vegas Convention Center and its attendant collection of Luxury Alloys.2016-Chrysler-300S-200S-REEL
