About Chrysler Sebring Convertible
For the 2007 model year, the Sebring was replaced with a new model based on the JS platform. The third-generation Sebring was built in Sterling Heights, Michigan, and over 82 percent of the parts were made in the United States. Because there was no convertible model for 2007, the 2006 Sebring was left to fill the vacancy, remaining in showrooms and on the company’s website until the 2008 model was released. The third-generation Sebring was heavily influenced by the Chrysler Airflite concept from 2003. It also boasts a number of Chrysler-branded styling cues, some of which were taken from the Chrysler Crossfire. The Sebring sedan and convertible were also available in right-hand drive through Chrysler’s dealer network in the United Kingdom and Ireland.
The 2,360 cc (2.36 L; 144 cu in) GEMA I4, the 2,736 cc (2.736 L; 167.0 cu in) EER V6, and the 3,518 cc (3.518 L; 214.7 cu in) EGF V6 were available for the 2007 Sebring. The 3.5 L V6 is mated to Chrysler’s first-ever six-speed automatic transmission with Autostick technology, while the 2.7 L V6 can run on cleaner-burning E85. Volkswagen’s 2.0 L turbocharged PDTDI (pumpe düse) diesel and the 2.0 L GEMA engine will be available in export vehicles. For 2008, only, the 3.5 L V6 sedan is available with all-wheel drive as an extra cost option.
The optional MyGIG Multimedia Infotainment System was introduced in 2008. Furthermore, the Limited gained the 2.4 L four-cylinder engine and was priced similarly to the Touring model for 2008. The rear badge locations were also changed for 2009. The hood was revised for the 2010 model year, removing the longitudinal grooves. In the frontal crash test, side impact test, and roof strength test, the IIHS scored the 2010 Sebring a G, indicating that it is a Top Safety Pick.
The Sebring convertible was revised for the 2008 model year, featuring hood strakes inspired by the Chrysler Crossfire. The new convertible body design made its premiere at the 2007 Los Angeles International Auto Show, and it was the second best-selling four-seat open-top car in the United States, trailing only the Ford Mustang convertible.
The Sebring’s roofs were made by Karmann and included both a retractable hardtop and soft top. The standard LX model had a vinyl top, while the Touring and Limited models had a fabric roof with the option of a retractable metal top. With a power tonneau cover and a luggage protection for the top, the convertible top retracts into the trunk. The top can also be retracted using the remote keyless entry system, allowing it to be stowed without having to get into the vehicle or start the motor.
