Chrysler unveils the new and improved 300

And my favourite luxury cab on the island of Singapore as well as the only American 4 door sedan that I (kind of) fancy gets a total redesign for 2011. The Chrysler 300 sedan gets a whole new exterior and interior and will be officially unveiled at the upcoming North American International Auto Show 2011 (NAIAS) this January.

From what we can tell the car gets a more rakish design. The grille, windscreen is more sloped than before and the whole car seems to be more hunkered down with a stance ala Maserati Quattroporte/BMW F01 7 Series instead of looking like a Bentley Arnage clone. Of course, some Bentley aping still remains, albeit done in good taste.

The interior gets better materials and looks good with blue lighting. Wodd looks real too and it seems more continental (European) rather than plasticky American.

The engines that will be available upon launch over in America are the 3.6liter V6 (292bhp/353Nm torque) and the 5.7liter HEMI V8 (370bhp/536Nm). Both engines transmit power to the rear wheels via a 5 speed automatic transmission. I suppose a diesel will follow for sales in the UK and Europe where the 300 does decently well.

It does look pretty good, with the right amount of ‘bling’ if you get what I mean.

The design is a failure. Why did they just slab the Grand Voyager's face to the 300C??

Chrome surrounds for the rear lights? In 2011? Joke!! BTW, there is at least one current model Hemi in SG.

Americans love having bling...hence the chrome, even if its 2011.
