2011 Chrysler 300


With a relatively short history (it was launched in 2004 as a 2005 model), the Chrysler 300 has never been the most successful model on the market. It would make sense for Chrysler to give it a solid kick in the pants as it heads out the door, but instead, they have decided to give the sedan one last chance. It’s time for the 300 to fish or cut bait, and Chrysler is hoping for the former with some exterior and interior updates, as well as some engine mods. The Chrysler 300 will make its official debut in 2011 at the Detroit Auto Show with sales to begin later in the year.

As usual, the 2011 Chrysler 300 will be offered in four models: Touring, Limited, 300C, and 300C AWD. An SRT8 version will be revealed in late 2011 as a 2012 model.

Update 01/07/2010: Just before its official launch at the Detroit Auto Show, Chrysler has announced pricing for the new 300. The standard model is priced from $27,995, while the Limited Edition’s prices go up to $31,995. The 300C version goes on sale at a price of $38,995 and the 300C AWD at $41,145. They’ve also released more images for the updated sedan which we’ve added to the gallery. Enjoy!

Hit the jump to read more about the future Chrysler 300.

Exterior and Interior

The 2011 Chrysler 300 looks bolder and more aggressive than ever. Compared to the previous model, the 2011 300 gets refined lines that make it look more elegant. There is a new front grille, redesigned headlamps with LED lights, new taillights, and numerous chrome inserts.

The teaser images do not reveal much about the interior, but spy shots revealed some changes will definitely be made. Don’t expect to see any miracles, but there will be new flat instrument cluster, a straight, square dashboard, and higher quality materials
making it a better competitor for the best sedans in its price range.

The Engine

The base version will be offered with a 3.6-liter V6 engine that will produce 292 HP and 260 lb-ft of torque. It is rumored that this engine will deliver improved fuel consumption and lowered CO2 emission. The top version will get a 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine with 363 HP, but with gas mileage reportedly increased.

The 300 will be offered standard as a rear-wheel drive model, but all-wheel drive will be offered as an option. All engines will be offered with a five-speed automatic transmission.

The Competition

The Chrysler 300 wants to take on models like the Dodge Charger , the Volvo S80, and even the Audi A6 or Infiniti M . But while all the prices are almost the same, driving a 300 is simply not the same thing as driving an A6. Almost every model in the competitor list offers a more luxurious interior and a better driving experience.

The two things the Chrysler has on its competitors are its warranty and its cheaper price tag. However, in regards to numbers, every competitor for the 300 does a much better job with power and handling.

When Can I Get One?

Hmm... Its good to hear about these updates. Well, compared to its previous model, this Chrysler 300 looks more bolder and aggressive on its new platform. The v6 engine is kind of outdated but for this type of vehicle, I think it would be enough.

The thin horizontal chrome bars are sleeker than the eggcrate worn by the current car, and they give the new 300 less of a boxy, road-barge look.

I like the bolder look of this car, very aggressive indeed and seems to be very rich and luxurious. Meaning this hybrid car can give is more of a quality and price matter.

Its going to be a good car, When its come to its new hybrid releases its pleasant but i think its not now, because i see this is the oldest models that is not really type.

I like the elegance and very refine classy look of the new Chrysler 300. The exterior design is made up of exterior and interior updates features that makes it official debut
in 2011 model.

Admittedly, the Chrysler 300 has an impressive design and paint job. However, I think the engine performance is not that great. For sure I could find a better model compare to this one. 

A very simple and elegant that creates interior and exterior design on it,competitors are its warranty will surely love the cheaper price tag.

America’s love for big and brawny rear-wheel drive sedans is taking a new step with the introduction of the all-new 2011 Chrysler 300, which has been revealed today in full ahead of its sales launch early next year.

The word itself crystalline is like a combination of pure gold crystal that creates a very smooth and refined color itself..,,nice to see the result of this combination..!!

A very elegant design suitable for the expectations of a wealthy individuals,..to provides a satisfaction of choosing a right quality of automobile..,,

Such images do not reveal much about the interior, but spy shots revealed some changes will definitely be made...With a high density.,,High quality..Great image outcome..!!

It is rumored that this engine will deliver improved fuel consumption and lowered CO2 emission,..my idea of this car..it is really in demand for a wealthy individuals especially for those who love simple,but elegant in style.

I think this car looks very simple or a little bit bore..Its good to see when you revised it some sort of styles. this is only fitted for president itself.

”Chrysler is not really a popular..maybe because it is not really giving more attention to revised the new engine to make it modern.. well,it should be nice when it convert it to other style..

wow it looks a lot better than the previous c300. it looks more muscle inside and more smoother outside. i guess obama has a new car to buy.

it looks great as a luxury vehicle, but there are still no word when it will be revealed and show on public.

thin horizontal chrome bars are sleeker than the eggcrate worn by the current car, and they give the new 300 less of a boxy, road-barge look.

Expect visibility to be improved though slimmer A- ars, more glass, and a much smaller C- ar created through the use of a small A-frame window at the rear.

Lovely photos. not sure if they are truly suited for this... because I see the 300 as a business car and the images suggest more like a SUV smiley
