Chrysler To Drop Prices On Select 2012 Sedans And Crossovers

The price boost often experienced from one model year to the next is nothing new in the automotive industry. In fact, many consumer goods increase by a small percentage each year due to factors like inflation and rising costs. What is a little more rare is year-to-year price cuts. But Chrysler will be doing just that as it moves from the 2011 to 2012 model year. It will offer base-trim price cuts on three different Chrysler and Dodge models, including the well-advertised Chrysler 200.

Both the 2012 Chrysler 200 and the 2012 Dodge Avenger will start at $18,995, $250 less than their 2011 counterparts. Those prices are before the $750 destination charge. According to Cars.com, this price decrease will make them the lowest priced mid-sized sedans on the market next year. Competitors like the 2012 Suzuki Kizashi and 2012 Kia Optima are anywhere from a few bucks to a few hundred bucks more expensive.

The Dodge Journey mid-sized crossover also becomes one of the best deals in its class, enjoying a substantial, $1,450 price decrease down to $20,995. The entry level Journey SE will have a destination fee of $800.

Higher trim levels have gotten slight increases. The 2012 Chrysler 200 Touring starts at $21,370, the Limited at $24,070 and the S at $26,365.

The Dodge models have had some trim levels renamed between the 2011 and 2012 model years. The 2012 Avenger SXT will start at $21,495 and the SXT Plus at $23,995. The all-new Avenger R/T will start at $25,995. The Journey SXT will start at $24,495, the SXT AWD at $26,295, the Crew at $28,495 and the Crew AWD at $30,295.

All prices exclude destination.

Bottom line: These Chrysler offerings may just demand a second look when they hit the market.
