Chrysler Sebring for Sale in Nigeria
The Chrysler Sebring is a mid-sized saloon car manufactured by Chrysler LLC of the United States of America. As opposed to some other brands, who limit a badge name to a specific trim, the Sebring was released in three different trims. Chrysler released the Sebring in two generations of Sedan, two generations of coupé and three generations of convertible. The Sebring was first introduced to the public in the Detroit Auto Show in 1994 and the public response was so overwhelmingly positive that Chrysler started selling the Sebring in early 1995. Chrysler continued to manufacture the Sebring till the economic crisis forced them to shut down the assembly line in 2010.

A good number of these dealers have their used vehicles on Nigeria’s leading online vehicle marketplace, Carmudi where there is a comprehensive collection of Chrysler Sebring vehicles for sale in the Nigerian car market.
