March 21, 2013 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - Hard work, perseverance, determination, never letting go of your dreams – all values that could describe Carhartt and Chrysler. These Detroit-based leaders in their have all persisted through good times and bad and continue to achieve the dreams they set out to accomplish.

More than 120 years ago, Hamilton Carhartt established his apparel company in Detroit and has continuously delivered enduring apparel that respects the hard-earned dollars of America's industrious men and women. Standing for rugged construction, innovative design and exceptional standards of quality, durability and comfort, Carhartt workwear has become a legend among America's skilled tradesmen and craftsmen. And no brand makes more rugged workwear in the Ú.S. than Carhartt. Today, the company remains privately held to ensure its founder's mission is carried through in every garment it produces. Carhartt is a supporter of a variety of Detroit area charities and cultural activities including the Detroit International Jazz Festival, and the Empowerment Plan, whose goal is to help the homeless in Detroit.

Chrysler was founded by the legendary Walter P. Chrysler in 1925. In the ensuing 88 years the brand has created legendary vehicles including the Imperial, Airflow and 300 and lesser known items like tanks, operating the only Ú.S. tank facility in Detroit from 1960 – 1980. The company continues to have a strong presence in the city of Detroit, manufacturing the Jeep Grand Cherokee, Dodge Durango and SRT Viper at plants located in the city. The Chrysler Foundation continues to be a major supporter of educational and charitable activities within the City of Detroit as well as around the country.

Today the two Detroit stalwarts announce their collaboration on the new 2013.5 Chrysler 200 S Special Edition. The special edition model celebrates the traits that both companies share – hard work, ingenuity, perseverance and a 'never say die' attitude. With a starting Ú.S. Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price of $28,870, the 200 S Special Edition brings style and customization in the mid-size sedan market to a whole new level.

'The 2013.5 Chrysler 200 S Special Edition celebrates a never-say-die attitude and the value of hard work wîth a car unlike any other in the marketplace,' said Saad Chehab, President and CEO – Chrysler Brand, Chrysler Group LLC. 'The 200 S Special Edition makes the statement that world-class quality and craftsmanship can be designed and developed in the Motor City, and embraced by consumers everywhere.'

The 2013.5 Chrysler 200 S Special Edition, powered by the award-winning, best-in-class 283 horsepower Pentastar V-6 engine, offers drivers and passengers a sinister style wîth rugged appointments, complements of Chrysler and Carhartt's knowledge and expertise.

The Special Edition is borne from the successful Chrysler 200 'S' packages which have brought a younger buyer to the Chrysler brand. The Chrysler 200 S packages offer customers a unique, more menacing style together wîth an incredible amount of standard features including 18-inch aluminum wheels wîth polished face and dark painted pockets, perforated leather-wrapped §teering wheel, premium leather seats, Boston Acoustic premium sound system and much more. The 2013.5 Chrysler 200 S Special Edition builds on the S package wîth a little more attitude, and additional standard features reward hard-working customers wîth a well-crafted, well-equipped mid-size sedan at a great value.

The Chrysler 200 S Special Edition stands out in the mid-size sedan §egmènt wîth unique exterior features that will catch the attention of both drivers and passengers. The exterior of the Special Edition sets the stage wîth a new gloss black mesh grille accented wîth a platinum chrome grille collar, a lower front fascia in platinum black and platinum chrome fog light 'spears' giving the 200 S Special Edition a more menacing stance. A sport suspension rewards the driver wîth a responsive, exciting driving experience.

Body color sill cladding, platinum chrome belt molding and semi-gloss black wheels comprise the unique profile view.

At the rear of the vehicle, a body-color decklid spoiler, platinum chrome light bar, rear valance wîth polished, fascia-mounted exhaust tips, unique 'S' and black '200' badges complete the distinctive exterior style of the 2013.5 Chrysler 200 S Special Edition.

The interior of the Chrysler 200 S Special Edition was designed in collaboration wîth Carhartt. As the premier producer of best-in-class apparel for the active worker since 1889, Carhartt has set a standard of excellence for sturdy yet stylish apparel that still stands today. Those values are the similar to the values Walter P. Chrysler had when he founded Chrysler in 1925.

'Our design teams were able to work collaboratively to reflect the heritage of both brands, first wîth the 'Imported From Detroit' line of apparel and now wîth the Chrysler 200 S Special Edition,' said Mark Valade, Carhartt CEO. 'The vehicle is understated in its levels of sophistication which authentically mirrors our brand.'

The interior features a water-resistant fabric in black that was selected by Carhartt, wîth the signature Carhartt triple stitching seat accents in diesel gray. Diesel gray accent stitching on the §teering wheel, armrests and center console carry the theme throughout the cabin. Black painted finishes adorn the air vents, gear shift, front cup holders and §teering wheel buttons round out the exclusive interior appointments featured on the 2013.5 Chrysler 200 S Special Edition.

Production of the 2013.5 Chrysler 200 S Special Edition begins in the second quarter 2013. The Chrysler 200 S is built in the Únited States at Chrysler Group LLC's Sterling Heights (Mich.) Assembly Plant. The 200 S Special Edition will be upfitted at Chrysler Group LLC's upfit center in Warren (Mich.).

The 2013.5 Chrysler 200 S Special Edition will be featured at the New York International Auto Show March 29 – April 7.

A limited edition version is available in each style and is individually hand-numbered from 1 to 200. The limited-edition outerwear pieces feature a map of Detroit screen printed on the coats interior lining.
