Chrysler 200 May Get a Diesel Engine

2015 Chrysler 200 May Get a Diesel Engine - ChryslerDealerNY

The diesel engine came into the market because of the demand from consumers.  They wanted a diesel engine on a Ram truck and when Ram finally delivered, they flocked to it.  It has been a huge win for the company, so it would stand to reason they’d start seeing if a diesel engine was possible elsewhere.  With the 2015 Chrysler 200 being the newest hit for the company, maybe it is time to explore the diesel option for a sedan.

Auto Evolution is reporting that Chrysler has a 2.2-liter diesel engine for the new sedan.  The codename attached to the project is “DeTomaso” a nod to the Italian automaker.

This discovery was uncovered by doing some digging around in the back end of DealerConnect.  It then lead Autonews on a “ghost hunt” as they referred to it.  While the engine was indeed showing up still on DealerConnect, Chrysler was unwilling to confirm they had found a smoking gun.  However, a colleague confirmed that Alfa Romeo was indeed working on a 2.2-liter turbodiesel that would be fit for a 200 should the company be nice and bring it state-side.

It sounds like an engine does exist, one that would work but it begs the question of should the company make a diesel option for the Chrysler 200?  I don’t see a good reason not to.  The diesel engines for the 1500 and Jeeps have been popular.  It seems that drivers really like the idea of having that option.  I don’t know if diesel users would spring for a sedan, but it might not hurt to try it out.
