DaimlerChrysler introduced 2007 Chrysler Sebring

DaimlerChrysler have finally completed the ambitious task of revamping their product line in all major categories with the introduction of the 2007 Chrysler Sebring.

The 2007 Sebring will be available in the 4th quarter of 2006 and shares the bold handsome familiar appearance of rest of the Chrysler family of cars.

The new Sebring driver will sit over 2.5 inches higher in the new model than in the outgoing model. In-keeping with the design themes introduced in earlier production models, the vehicle shares styling cues with the Chrysler Airflite concept shown at the 2005 Geneva Auto show.

A trio of engines will be available for Sebring drivers, from the impressive 2.4L inline 4 cylinder World engine developed jointly with Hyundai and Mitsubishi, up through the revamped 2.7L V6 engine previously seen in the Sebring, to the 3.5L V6 which had been Chrysler’s premier engine prior to the Hemi re-introduction. The 3.5L engine is mated to a class leading 6 speed automatic transmission. With the larger V6 installed, look for the Sebring to create some serious buzz around the performance water-cooler crowd.

Outside North America, a 2.0L turbo diesel engine will be available with 140 horsepower but a whopping 236 lb-ft of torque, which is more than the larger 3.5L v6 engine offered in North America.

On the safety checklist, look for standard front, side curtain and front seat mounted side airbags and standard 4 wheel Anti Lock brakes, in addition to the regular slate of goodies.

Inside the redesigned Sebring look for a major move up market with techno goodies with available Sirius Satellite radio, a built in music hard drive with USB connection for easy downloading, Bluetooth U-Connect interface and a central touch screen color LCD panel, with video replay potential.

Look for a test drive report once the manufacturer makes one available.
