Introducing the 2013.5 Chrysler 200S Special Edition

Introducing the 2013.5 Chrysler 200S Special EditionIn recent months, the Chrysler 300 has received its share of special attention, with Chrysler designers reimagining the standard look (if you can call it that) of the 300 in inventive new ways. From the icy-cool Chrysler 300 Glacier, to the sleek and sexy John Varvatos Limited and Luxury Editions, to the white-hot Motown Edition, the Chrysler 300 has been driven to the forefront of design.

Now, it’s time for the Chrysler 200 sedan to enjoy its moment in the spotlight.

Introducing the new 2013.5 Chrysler 200S Special Edition, a unique, limited edition 200S with a one-of-kind exterior/interior combo inspired by and building on the aggressive and sporty appearance of the popular “S” package currently available. Raising the bar further is the historic collaboration with a company born right here in Detroit more than 120 years ago: Carhartt® (more on this below).
