With increasing altitude the engine power and therefore the car's climbing ability are impaired because of the reduced air density, so the maximum trailer weight has to be reduced accordingly. The weight of the car and trailer must be reduced by 10% for every further 3280 ft (1,000 m) (or part thereof).

Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) - 4612 lb

This is the maximum amount of weight Chrysler 200 is rated to carry (engine, chassis, fluids, passengers, cargo, load - everything). It is often determined by the manufacturer and is indicated in the owner's manual or on the inside of the drive's door panel.

Curb Weight - 3473 lb

Payload Capacity - 1139 lb

  1. Upgrading the Rear Springs.
  2. Adding Coil-Over Shock Absorbers.
  3. Installing a Longer Truck Bed.
  4. Attaching a Trailer.
  5. Adding Bed Racks.

Horsepower - 184 hp

The higher the power of your engine, the more weight your car can pull.

Torque - 173 Lb-Ft

High torque is essential for towing because it allows you to pull the trailer at a lower RPM, reducing the strain on the engine.

Axle Ratio - 3.73

The higher the axle ratio, the more power your vehicle produces, and as a result, the more weight this car can tow.

Drive Type - front-wheel

All-wheel or rear-wheel drive vehicles are best suited for towing, while front-wheel drive vehicles can haul much less weight.

Transmission - 9-spd auto w/OD

It is the same for all trims.

Do not overload your vehicle while towing, as this can cause the transmission to overheat and fail. If your transmission has "Towing mode" - be sure to turn it on.

Turbocharger - no data

Turbocharged engines produce more power, so if you need a vehicle for towing, choose the one equipped with a turbo.

Wheelbase - 108

It is the same for all trims.

The longer your vehicle's wheelbase, the less likely the trailer you tow will push down on the rear axle and lift the front end.

Front Gross Axle Weight Rating (GAWR) - no data

It is the maximum allowable weight that can be placed on a front axle of your Chrysler 200.

Rear Gross Axle Weight Rating (GAWR) - no data

It is the maximum allowable weight that can be placed on a rear axle of your Chrysler 200.
