Although we’ve seen the 2011 Chrysler 300 up close and in person, pesky camouflage has prevented us from obtaining a good look at the final product. That’s changed, however, thanks to the spy photographers at Motor Trend, who managed to capture the revised sedan in all its glory.
Apparently caught during a video or photo shoot, the new 300 bears a considerable resemblance to renderings provided during the automaker’s bankruptcy proceedings. The revised sedan receives an all-new rounded nose, complete with a grille and headlamps similar to those used on the new 2011 200 sedan. We dig the headlamp assemblies themselves, which receive a neat LED surround.
Most sheetmetal between the A- and C-pillars remains relatively unchanged (we did, however, note some minor stamping differences on an earlier prototype), but designers did work a few changes into the car’s hindquarters. Vertically stacked taillights feature LED illumination, while the rear bumper fascia and decklid are restyled. Chrysler’s new logo appears on both the nose and tail, but it appears even the 300 emblem itself has been redesigned; 300C models now receive a subscript C.
Thanks to dark window tint and high security, we can’t see much — or any — of the interior. Arguably one of the weak points of the previous car, Chrysler has promised to completely overhaul the cabin, fitting soft touch and premium materials throughout. If the result is anything like the miracles worked in the Ram pickups or the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee, the revisions will certainly be welcome.
We expect details on the 2011 300 to emerge later this year, but until then, you can scope the remainder of Motor Trend‘s spy shots by clicking here.
