A change in generations is almost upon us; if you do not believe, you need only gaze at the 2018 Chrysler 100, at least according to the rumors surrounding it. The new car for the new age, with high tech to boot – what could be better? Let’s find out.
Release Date of 2018 Chrysler 100
It is far too early to talk about the release date of the 2018 Chrysler 100. However, given that this is a 2018 model and all, it should appear no earlier than the second half of 2017.
2018 Chrysler 100 Price
We don’t exactly know what the 2018 Chrysler 100 will be going for once it is manufactured and delivered, but this does not stop us from taking a guess.
The base version should go for roughly $26,000. Of course, higher trims and additional equipment can and will add quite a few bucks on top of that, so don’t say we didn’t warn you.
Chrysler 100 Exterior
On the outside, the decision to employ an innovative platform in combination with new and advanced materials for the 2018 Chrysler 100 seems to be doing just fine for the sedan.
From what we could tell, the car will be as elegant and futuristically-looking as one might expect. The new and redesigned front grille, bumpers, brand new alloy wheels in several sizes, cool new LED lights…
The whole nine yards. The front is designed to look aggressive and stylish while the rear is meant to be modern and seductive.
Having said all this, it seems there will be a change in dimensions – most likely the wheelbase, as well as a significant weight reduction.
There is next to nothing confirmed regarding what we might find inside the 2018 Chrysler 100. If previous models are to be believed, it should be quite roomy, regardless of the shift in dimensions.
The reduced weight should do wonders for the driving experience, handling as well as fuel efficiency, but let us not get ahead of ourselves. The upholstery is going to feature nothing but fine leather, in order to complete the luxurious vibe that the designers will undoubtedly be gunning for.
Naturally, a myriad of new gadgets, safety features and connectivity options will be included, although some of them are probably going to be optional.
A brand new infotainment system along with USB ports, Bluetooth and any improvements that Chrysler designers can come up with in the next year or so.
Chrysler 100 Engine
The most interesting part about the rumored 2018 Chrysler 100 is also the least elaborated on. According to previous models and rumors circulating the car, we are most likely looking at a new2.5 L 4-banger with no less than 180 hp and just as many pound-feet of torque.
Of course, earlier models had several version of the engines that were available in addition to this one, with a lot more ponies and all matted to a 6-speed automatic transmission. The old fuel consumption of 28 miles on a single gallon on the highway and 23 in the city is likely going to be improved as well.
