It’s been endlessly teased and occasionally spied, and now it’s official: the 2011 Chrysler 300 has arrived ahead of its world debut at the Detroit Auto Show next month.
As we’ve seen before, the exterior of the 300 is even more audacious than its predecessor, thanks to the liberal application of chrome below the headlamps, on the grille, coating the side mirrors and partially framing the tail lights and trunk. New LEDs are fitted up front, and while Chrysler hasn’t released interior shots just yet, judging by what we’ve already spied and recently sampled in the automaker’s latest offerings, the insides should be significantly improved.
Power will come from the same engines we’ve been familiarizing ourselves with over the last year, specifically Chrysler’s new 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 and 5.7-liter V8, with power sent to either the rear wheels or all four depending on spec. Sales should begin in the first quarter of 2011, and expect pricing to hit closer to the 300′s debut in Detroit.
