For those looking to see the latest Chrysler has to offer, the 2010 Los Angeles Auto Show wasn’t completely satisfying. While Chrysler showed off its new midsize 200 sedan to the world for the first time ever, the larger, lux-oriented 2011 300 would have to wait for a later date – perhaps the 2011 Detroit Auto Show in January. But now, with the curtains closed on L.A.’s media days, the ramp-up to the new 300 is upon us and Chrysler has rolled out a teaser Web site to preview a few detail images of the new car.
As we’ve seen in previous spy images, the 2011 300 sedan features most of its changes at the two extreme ends. All new cathedral-style taillights sit out back, with extensive chrome trim. Up front the hood is redesigned with contour lines (the better to hide a Pentastar V-6 and a more powerful V-8 Hemi?) and a flashy new multi-bar chrome grille. The wheels are, of course, all-new, and LED-lined headlights bring the 300 kicking and screaming into the new decade. A whole new instrument cluster is seen for the first time, with heavy blue backlighting and a techy but elegant allure, and both the “300 C” badge and Chrysler badges have been revised, the latter featuring a longer wingspan.
