2011 Chrysler 300 revealed

http://www.motorauthority.com/blog/1...er-300-preview

Still prefer the look of the old one but its interior stopped me from buying one.. let's hope this one is better.

The out going 300 had original styling. That looks like a 15 year old S-class.

this is never going to sell. THe old 300 had identity; this just looks like a giant barge with no distinguishing characteristic at the front.

looks like a cheap giant hyuandai with boxy styling.

How can you possibly say the 300 had original styling. It's as if the designers styled it specifically to look like a Phantom to ignorant ghetto people

What? Nothing about the previous car was original. That being said, this new one is so similar you can't really have two very different opinions between them. The profile is still the same, the headlights, grille, and hood creases are the only real changes...

I actually think the new one is an improvement, though that isn't saying much. I even like the new ones wheels, it will look fairly decent with a mild drop.

I would personally never buy a 300, but I know what he means.

He doesn't mean original styling...but the 300 had styling that sort of ...defined it -- you KNEW that was a 300 looking at it; it was mean looking, akward, but had character.

This is a giant hyuandai.

Neither the current nor this new 300 look good. In fact I'm having trouble thinking of a single half-decent Chrysler design.

The ME Four-Twelve looks pretty good:

This is going to sell like crack laced hotcakes in San Diego. People love this car and it's sister the Dodge Charger. They ride around with the worst 20" chrome rims without lowering. I don't get it, but I wish I had a dollar for every one on the road.

Not really feeling the new 300C. I had a 300C, got it when it first came out back in 2005, it was a great car but the appeal of the 300C wore off around 2008. I doubt Chrysler will ever recapture the buzz they had when the first 300C came out with this new model. I also never understood why Chrysler never refreshed the 300C except for adding new taillights, some interior tweaks and adding a cheap chrome mesh grill like the ones you see on eBay for $50.

The new Grand Cherokee and the Challenger are pretty nice Chrysler designs IMO....

Good to see they have addressed the horribly cheap interior styling and materials.
