Chrysler 300 for 2011
Chrysler Group >
28th December, 2010
With its rear-wheel drive configuration and sculptured
bodyside, the new 2011 Chrysler 300 delivers the distinction, innovation and large sedan features at a
legendary value, while setting a new course for the American brand.
The "300", with more than 55 years of elegant proportions and head-turning style, now delivers
contemporary styling with design details unexpected in the segment. At the front, an all-new grille features
seven deeply sculpted horizontal blades that express precision. The liquid-chrome finish of the blades and
the new Chrysler wing badge provide a unique contrast against the beautifully drawn bright chrome grille
surround. Illuminating the road ahead are signature “key slot” headlamps with a scalloped lower edge.
Inside, bi-functional projector headlamps are nestled next to LED-illuminated daytime running lamps, which
together form a “C” shape for unmistakable on-road presence.
The profile of the all-new Chrysler 300 features the distinctive proportions of its predecessor with
added design refinement for a more tailored appearance. Dramatic front-mudguards rise above the sculpted
bonnet and are echoed by rear-quarter forms which rise above the boot lid and travel down the vertical
taillamps for an unmistakably bold signature silhouette. For improved aerodynamics and visibility, the new
Chrysler luxury flagship’s windshield has been raked back 3 inches, while rolled-framed doors with thinner
pillars improve outward visibility by 15 per cent. To take in the sky above, a new dual-pane panoramic
sunroof provides Chrysler 300 passengers with twice the outward visibility of a standard sunroof. For a
more contemporary appearance, the 2011 Chrysler 300 features a clean bodyside with a distinct windswept
A-line that emphasises the sedan’s long wheelbase and spacious cabin. Delivering a touch of world-class
sophistication, the new Chrysler 300 is highlighted by chrome daylight openings, chrome front- and
rear-fascia accents and available 20-inch polished-aluminium wheels.
Elevating the new Chrysler 300’s presence from the rear, the boot lid now incorporates a lip spoiler
while the new Chrysler wing badge is proudly centred below. Jeweled-like rear taillamps feature harmonious
LED illumination, while signature “light pipes” illuminate for an alluring nighttime appearance. Straddling
the vertical lamps, Chrysler 300’s rear fascia integrates a chrome appliqué that seamlessly connects the
taillamp elements while emphasising the road-holding stature of the flagship sedan. Standard fascia-mounted
3.5-inch oval dual exhaust tips complete the sedan’s appearance.
Combining world-class accommodations with American style, the new Chrysler 300’s interior delivers
expressive style, authentic materials, passenger comfort features and precise fit and finish. Substantial
interior upgrades on the 2011 Chrysler 300 consist of soft touch materials, premium interior trim, optional
heated and ventilated Nappa leather seats, and real wood appliques on the instrument panel, doors, centre
console and steering wheel.
Designed to exude a luxurious environment, the 2011 Chrysler 300 sedans feature cast-skin instrument and
door panels with three-dimensional dual gloss graining for a premium appearance and suppleness. Bright
chrome contrasted with liquid chrome accents give the Chrysler flagship sedan the appearance of milled
aluminium. For added detail, a new instrument cluster features two large gauge faces with sapphire blue
illumination and chrome ring accents. Providing a premium and contemporary environment is an all-new sapphire
blue LED-illuminated ambient interior lighting.
With its massive 8.4-inch Uconnect® Touch infotainment centre, the 2011 Chrysler 300 sedans feature the
segment’s largest standard touchscreen display, integrating world-class infotainment and convenience
technologies to keep passengers connected, comfortable and secure. From touchscreen navigation to dual-zone
climate controls, to the ability to check fuel prices and personalise convenience features, Uconnect Touch
makes life in the new Chrysler flagship sedan an excellent experience for the driver and passengers.
Built at the Brampton Assembly Plant in Brampton, Ontario (Canada), the 2011 Chrysler 300 arrives in
North American showrooms in the first quarter of 2011. An Australian release is anticipated in Q3
