Here’s the nitty gritty on the 2007 Chrysler Sebring straight from the automaker’s mouth. Aside from the expressive styling inspired by the 2003 Airflite concept, the interior of the car is packed with unique and high-end available features. Most notable is the Harmon/Kardon nav system that features a 6.5-inch touchscreen display, a 20gb hard drive with Music Juke Box software, a USB port to download songs and pictures, a mic in the rearview mirror to record up to three-minute voice memos, Sirius satellite radio and hands-free Bluetooth phone connectivity.
We’re psyched about the Sebring’s cupholders, however, which can cool drinks to 35 degrees F or heat them up to 140 degrees F. No more warm, flat Pepsi on road trips for us. Heated seats are also available as on option, but no cooling function for the posteriors.
Also available after launch will be LED interior lighting with high-focus white lights for both the front and rear seats. Chrysler didn’t forget the obligatory auxiliary audio input jack to connect MP3 players, either.
Available safety equipment includes up to six airbags, ESP with Brake Assist, Traction Control, ABS and a tire pressure monitoring system.
As mentioned in our previous post, engine choices are a 2.4L four-cylinder (172 hp), a 2.7L V6 (190 hp/190 ft-lbs) and a 3.5L V6 (235 hp/232 ft-lbs). In combination with Chrysler’s new six-speed auto, the 3.5L should rival the acceleration of the segment’s leaders according to the company.
Three trim levels of the Sebring will be available: Sebring, Sebring Touring and Sebring Limited. It will be built at the Sterling Heights Assembly plant in Michigan and be on dealer lots by the fourth quarter of 2006.
