2015 Chrysler 200 nets 10,000 orders in first day

Chrysler is having a “crazy impressive” launch for its 2015 200, claims company spokesperson Rick Deneau. Within the first two days of opening the order books, the Pentastar took over 17,000 requests for its swoopy new family sedan – 10,000 of them in the first day. The company says that’s enough to keep its Sterling Heights, MI, factory running at full capacity through mid-July.

Deneau tells Autoblog that the last time he saw such an immediate popularity for a model was when Ram launched its 1500 EcoDiesel pickup. That truck sold out of its initial order allocation in just three days earlier this year. As you’d expect, “most of these are dealer orders,” Deneau admits. In other words, they’re not necessarily coming at the behest of individual customer, but that’s standard operating procedure as dealers look to fill up their showrooms.

For the moment, it’s too early to know which trim or engine will prove most popular in the new 200. At present, most of the ordered models are highly optioned. That’s normal for a new vehicle launch, as early adopters tend to want all the bells and whistles and dealers want to show off their new stock by putting their best foot forward.

The early order spike suggests some pent-up enthusiasm for the 200, at least among dealers. If actual consumers like it as much, the 200 should go some way toward helping Chrysler extend its growing market share.
