The Super Bowl commercial back in 2011 featuring Eminem made the Chrysler 200 famous for being imported from Detroit. Now the sleek sedan has been completely redesigned. The 2015 model glided onto the auto stage with high hopes and plenty of praise. Chrysler wants the car to redefine the brand.

"It's athletic, yet soulful, with fluid surfaces that drivers will want to touch and feel," said Al Gardner, Chrysler brand CEO.

Some are calling the new 200 the most improved vehicle of this year's auto show with better performance, technology and efficiency. It's the industry's first mid-sized sedan with a nine-speed automatic transmission.

"It has the most advanced safety systems and the most interior storage over any car in its class and much, much more,"

Chrysler says the car will get 35 miles per gallon on the highway. The sticker price is $21,700.

But perhaps the best part of the story is where the car will be built: at Chrysler's newly redesigned plant in Sterling Heights.

Chairman and CEO Sergio Marchionne who will lead Chrysler and fiat for at least three more years, said the plant once slated for closure during Chrysler's bankruptcy is now the automaker's newest, most modern facility.
