Review of 2015 Chrysler 200
Chrysler which is also known as the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles or FCA US LLC is headquartered in Michigan. This American Automobile giant is currently owned by the Italian car maker Fiat. In 1925 Walter Chrysler found the Chrysler Corporation. This corporation was built on the remnants of the Maxwell Motor Company. In 1928 Chrysler bought the Dodge Brothers Company and the Fargo truck company thus expanding its business and selling more vehicles under these newly acquired brands.
The Chrysler European Division was formed in 1960 when the Chrysler Corporation started its business in the European countries. By the end of the 1970’s Chrysler’s was almost bankrupt owing to the economic crash and the 1973 oil crisis. This led to the European Division of Chrysler to shut down operations in 1979. This was later resuscitated by Lee Lacocca who took over as the CEO of the Chrysler European division in 1980.
After many more mergers and economic crisis, Chrysler was at last bought by the Fiat group and since January 21, 2014 Chrysler operates under the banner of Fiat.

Review of 2015 Chrysler 300
The 2015 Chrysler 300 has been beautifully crafted with mild alterations done to the previously released model. All the four variants of this model come with a strong V-6 engine. These variants are classified as the Limited Edition (All-wheel drive), Limited Edition (Rear-Wheel drive), S (all-wheel drive) and S (rear-wheel drive) 4 door sedans.
The first two limited variants come with 6 cylinders, 3.6 liter capacity engines with 292 hp. The S edition all-wheel drive comes with a 6 cylinder, 3.6 liter engine that has 292 hp. The S edition, rear-wheel drive however, comes with either 300 hp or 363 hp engine power.
The rotary gear selectors in this car are improved and easier to use. The ride is comfortable with the upgraded and refined interior quality. The plastic gear knob, however, looks a little tacky and the heavy backseats give a claustrophobic feel.
