Allpar.com's collection of Chrysler Sebring and Dodge Avenger spy shots is now unrivaled on the internet after adding shots of Euro-spec models being test in the old country. This shot is reportedly of a diesel model and clearly shows the shape of the vehicle's headlights. The site also reports that engine options have been narrowed down to the 2.4L World Engine four-cylinder, a 2.7L V6 and larger 3.5L V6 coupled to either a four-speed auto or Chrysler-developed six-speed auto. Export models get a 2.0L version of the World Engine or a diesel. Credit goes to Allpar.com for also compiling a list of features that's more detailed than most press releases.

Check out the site for more pics, including a nice interior pic that shows Chrysler's new switchgear.

Thanks Jeremy for the tip!

      Tall & clunky, Saturn Ion like almost. Most importantly, when is Chrysler going to get a clue and work on the quality of their interiors? The Caliber has the hardest, cheapest plastic I've seen in years and the new Sebring looks no different.

      "3.5 & 6 speed auto. 2008 Mazda6, 2007 Toyota Camry, both have a 3.5V6 and BETTER 6 speed automatic"

      More of your stupidity. How better? Explain. The specs on the new 6 speed Chrysler trans actually make it a 7 speed, rather than a 6 speed with the dual kick down gear.

      "If your new car does nothing to advance the state of car design, why bother?"

      Then Toyota would be out of business.

      There is something about Chrysler-Dodge interiors which turns me off. They are sooo spartan and basic.

      The next Sebring does not have design cues from the 300. The Avenger appears to be mostly a baby Charger but the Sebring is more influenced by the Pacifica. This is not too hard to tell from the spy shots. And personally, I'm excited to see what this car will look like with the camo off. It looks like it will be a great looking car.

      More Chrysler stupidity.
      2.4 with obsolete transmission, just buy Ford Fusion, Honda Accord, Toyota Camry all have 5 speed autos with their I4s.
      Slow rental.
      2.7 & 4 speed auto, buy a Kia Optima and get a 5 speed auto standard.
      3.5 & 6 speed auto. 2008 Mazda6, 2007 Toyota Camry, both have a 3.5V6 and BETTER 6 speed automatic.

      dailmer Chrysler has been knocking thme out the park lately. This is way better than th chevorlet Malibu. It's going to be competition to Ford Fusion.

      Welp, they lost my cash. Another sporty looking two door that has been changed into a definite grocery getter.

      A very high percentage of these cars are currently sold to rental fleets. Their retail sales are fairly weak, and I don't get the sense that they're even on the radar of many midsize sedan shoppers.

      The prototypes look a bit much like the Saturn ION / next gen Sentra. But I'm ready to be surprised by the production cars.

      I wonder how well the 300c design themes will play out in the smaller Sebring. What i see doesnt impress.

      The 300c is all about presence, SIZE, and bling! This looks too small wimpy to be carrying the same design cues as the 300. And, why are they so cheap as to not paint the side mirror?

      Given that the Stratus/Sebring is still selling so well and that the new car looks dull and cheap, why bother with a redesign? If your new car does nothing to advance the state of car design, why bother? Hope its cheap and loaded. See you at the rental counter...

      Look at the 3/4 view, looks like an ION

      Chrysler has been leading edge in styling. This looks like yesterday.
