The All-new 2007 Chrysler Sebring — Chrysler Builds on Winning Formula, Creating Inspiration for the Mid-size Sedan Segment

* Strikingly beautiful design with world-class interior craftsmanship
* Purposeful technology that makes life easier and safer
* Class-leading safety features
* Exhilarating performance with excellent fuel efficiency

Chelsea, Mich., Jun 22, 2006 –

Chrysler is creating inspiration in the common car, introducing the 2007 Chrysler Sebring. An all-new mid-size sedan, Chrysler Sebring builds on the winning formula begun with the award-winning Chrysler 300 in the large car segment, and more recently, the all-new 2007 Dodge Caliber in the compact car segment. This formula combines stunning design with interior craftsmanship, high-levels of safety and reliability, exhilarating performance and excellent fuel efficiency, all at a surprisingly affordable price. Sebring also features many class-leading technologies not available in the mid-size segment.

“The all-new 2007 Chrysler Sebring sustains the momentum started by the blockbuster hit Chrysler 300 and continued with the Dodge Caliber,” said George Murphy, Senior Vice President – Global Marketing. “Just as the 300 redefined the large-car segment and signaled the return of the great American car, Chrysler Sebring combines the levels of reliability and durability that mid-size buyers demand with unexpected levels of style, craftsmanship, technology and affordable performance.”

The 2007 Chrysler Sebring appeals to buyers who appreciate style, practicality, safety and value. Sebring’s elegant and sophisticated design, packaged with interior craftsmanship, exciting new technologies and class-leading safety features, meet the needs of their busy lives.

The 2007 Chrysler Sebring will be available in U.S. dealerships in the fourth quarter of 2006 and in global volume markets in the first half of 2007.

Strikingly Beautiful Design
Inspired by the 2003 Chrysler Airflite concept vehicle that was revealed at the Geneva motor show, the all-new Chrysler Sebring’s elegant lines evoke the exterior styling features of the Chrysler vehicle, bringing the Chrysler brand’s expressive design attributes to the mid-size segment.

“Sleek and sophisticated, the Chrysler Sebring’s overall surfacing and details reflect the Chrysler brand’s four attributes: expressive, refined, athletic and passionate,” said Trevor Creed, Senior Vice President – Design. “Sebring’s elegant styling provides a clear alternative to European and Japanese competition.”

From the front, the Chrysler Sebring sedan features the distinctive face of the Chrysler brand, with the Chrysler signature grille, a uniquely sculptured hood, large, distinctive quad headlamps and available fog lamps.

A long hood profile, chrome beltline molding and long roofline emulate a five-door appearance. High-gloss blackouts on the B-pillars enhance the length of the Sebring’s greenhouse. Sculptured character lines running along the body accentuate Sebring’s athletic stance.

The expressive character of the vehicle continues at the rear where Sebring’s wide tail-lamps are integrated into both the rear quarters and extend into the deck lid for visual impact. Rear fog lamps mounted in the backup lamps maintain a uniform appearance between domestic and export vehicles. Chrysler Sebring Limited models for the U.S. market add chrome-tipped dual exhaust outlets to hint at the performance capability of the optional 3.5-liter V6 engine.

World-class Craftsmanship
The elegance found in Sebring’s exterior styling also runs through the vehicle’s interior, which features a modern, clean appearance with intense focus on quality, detail and execution.

New 2007 Chrysler Pacifica Rolls Ashore With Added Performance, Standard Safety Features and an Unmistakably Elegant Style

* New 4.0-liter engine is the most powerful naturally aspirated V-6 engine in the Chrysler lineup
* New six-speed automatic transmission results in an inspired driving experience
* Standard side curtain air bags and Electronic Stability Program among added standard safety features
* First-class interior experience enhanced with new features including YES Essentials® cloth seats that resist stains, odor and static

Chelsea, Mich., Jun 22, 2006 –

Chrysler Group rolls out a fresh Chrysler Pacifica model lineup that offers an enhanced driving experience to match the inspired style, safety and flexibility of the vehicle. With a new 4.0-liter single overhead cam (SOHC) aluminum V-6 engine mated to an all-new six-speed transmission that offers increased horsepower and torque, abundant standard safety features, YES Essentials® stain resistant, odor resistant, anti-static seat fabric and a design that reflects the “face” of Chrysler, the 2007 Chrysler Pacifica offers more performance, added standard safety features, added versatility and a first-class interior experience.

In addition to the updated exterior, new engine and new transmission, the 2007 Chrysler Pacifica models offer more standard safety features including all-row side curtain air bags, Electronic Stability Program (ESP), Electronic Throttle Control (ETC), traction control and an available ParkView™ rear back up camera. With a 5-star safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) for front- and side-impact, and four stars (the highest rating of vehicles tested in its class) for roll-over, Pacifica offers best-in-class safety without sacrificing style or performance.

“Get behind the wheel of the 2007 Chrysler Pacifica to feel the increased horsepower and torque that the new 4.0-liter engine and six-speed transmission provide; it’s a great driving experience,” said Larry Lyons, Vice President – Front-wheel Drive Product Team. “We’ve also added standard safety features including all-row side curtain air bags, ESP, all-speed traction control and brake assist that offer consumers peace of mind when traveling.”

Offering the capability of all-wheel drive in a stylish vehicle with the flexibility and utility of an SUV or minivan, but the fuel economy and safety of a passenger car, the 2007 Chrysler Pacifica is perfectly positioned for active individuals and families who want to arrive at their destination in style. With first-class seating including available heated first- and second-row leather seats, dual-zone temperature controls, Bluetooth™ compatible UConnect™ hands-free communication system and SIRIUS satellite radio, the new 2007 Chrysler Pacifica fits in at the country club or the soccer field.

Introduced originally in the spring of 2003, the Chrysler Pacifica was targeted to reach the more than 2.3 million consumers moving between traditional vehicle segments each year. Combining the best attributes of a minivan, passenger car and SUV in one stylish vehicle, the Chrysler Pacifica came to market as one of the first vehicles in the sports tourer segment. As the segment continues to evolve, the Chrysler Pacifica leads the way.

The 2007 Chrysler Pacifica appeals primarily to active families with older children at home. They want a vehicle with premium amenities that handles like a car, has sport utility-like capability, offers the roominess of a minivan and has an upscale appearance, for a price that makes sense. The typical Pacifica consumer is a married female between the ages of thirty-five and fifty who is a college graduate, has an average annual household income of $85,000 and has children over the age of 10 at home.
