Chrystler 300 2011

2011 Chrysler 300 - New and Improved!

Since making its debut in 2005, the current version of the Chrysler 300 has won praise from critics and the following of fans for its muscular good looks, powerful drive and rear- and all-wheel-drive availability. There is no other American car like it unless you include its sibling Dodge Charger in that mix.
For 2011, the Chrysler 300 is updated, but it does so without losing its original appeal. Call it more of an "evolution" than a "revolution" to describe these changes, an all-new model with a familiar face.
New Engine
Among the changes found in the 2011 model is its all-new 3.6-liter V-6 engine. That engine, which originally made its debut in the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee, is slated to show up across 13 model lines by 2013. Lighter, more fuel efficient and more powerful the V-6 engines it will replace, this engine will see a boost in horsepower, torque and fuel economy numbers. Importantly, it is being paired with a six-speed automatic transmission though some have indicated that an eight-speed transmission may show up as early as this model year.
The HEMI 5.7-liter V8 returns, giving the Chrysler 300 segment leading performance. This is important for people who demand European performance numbers in their large sedans, but are not wanting to pay the price for an Audi, BMW or Mercedes.
Surface Changes
On the outside, the grill, headlamps, hood and rear deck are refreshed as is the roof-line. Again, the changes are more subtle than pronounced as Chrysler doesn't want to mess with success. Inside, the improvements can be seen in the new dash, instrument gauges, expanded use of soft touch materials, improved seats, leather and wood touches and optional amenities. You'll be forgiven if you place the Chrysler 300C in the same class as the Cadillac STS - it has almost everything you want in premium sedan without the luxury price.
Returning for 2011 is an extended wheelbase Chrysler 300 officially known as the Walter P. Chrysler Executive Series 300. With its six-inch extension, this executive sedan is better positioned to compete with the Lincoln Town Car and Cadillac DTS for livery business - all of that extra space is added to the rear passenger compartment giving additional legroom.
Various customized Chrysler 300 models will likely return including a unique four-door convertible and extended wheelbase limousine. Short, medium or long, the 2011 Chrysler 300 continues on with its successful theme, a classic sedan certain to appeal.
