Chrysler 200 History
Chrysler 200 started out as Cirrus in 1995; a badge-engineered triplet introduced alongside Plymouth Breeze and Dodge Stratus. With references to weather terms the trio became known as Cloud Cars. Cirrus is the last surviving “Cloud Car” after Chrysler phased out the Plymouth brand in 2001, and Dodge discontinued the Stratus in 2006. In 2001 Cirrus was renamed Sebring until 2010 when Chrysler changed its naming convention to numbers following the success of Chrysler 300. Chrysler 200 now competes in the highly competitive mid-size sedan segment, going against the likes of Mazda 6, Honda Accord, and Toyota Camry.
