2011 Chrysler 300 teaser – Click above for high-res image gallery

Our friends at Kicking Tires stumbled upon a series of teaser images from Chrysler showing off the revised-for-2011 Chrysler 300 sedan. Yes, our intrepid spy shooters have already offered up some pretty darn good photos of the car as it was being shot for marketing purposes, but it's always good to focus in on details like the new corporate-style grille, headlamps, taillamps and the sleek new winged Chrysler logo.

From what we can see, the next Chrysler 300 will continue the brand's march to the top of the upscale American sedan ladder that it first ascended way back in 2004 as a 2005 model. Yes, it's been that long since the boxy, gangsta-style machine hit the market – "due for an update" would be a serious understatement.

Expect the 2011 300 to come equipped with both the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 and 5.7-liter Hemi V8 and be available with either standard rear-wheel drive or optional all-wheel drive. We're counting on a full debut at the 2011 Detroit Auto Show in January, but in the meantime, feel free to peruse the image gallery below.

      not bad, very elegant! definitely has some European influences, but that's never a bad thing.Should be a big hit I think.

      Autoweek mag has an article with photos as well.

      The most important question is will there be a wagon variant and if so, will it still be a Europe only model.
      • 4 Years Ago
      It'll sell because it looks expensive, yet everyone can afford one.

        I thought it couldn't get worse than invoking the name of a JeanClaude VD character but then you went and opened your mouth.

        Good job

      Those wrinkles in the driver's seat do not scream "quality" to me for some reason.
        • 4 Years Ago
        @Benfolio - they're not out of place if the rest of the interior isn't as updated as the exterior, that's the only way you can reasonably explain a 'teaser' of an armrest. seriously... an armrest?
        • 4 Years Ago
        They just seem out of place in a 'teaser' shot. It's like that teaser of the Explorer a few months back with the horrible fitting bumper.

        BTW, my '98 Legacy has nice wrinkle free (p)leather seats, and it has 180k miles on them, and my fat ass every day.

      So... Audi headlights and a Bangle Butt? I guess I'd rather have an Audi and a Bimmer than a Bentley.

        Keep the no nonsenses banter to yourself or at least to the ones who really care! My I recommend some Jack or a gun to help you get through your sad sad meaningless, pitiful life?
        • 4 Years Ago
        I guess you have the money to pay for one of those then too hu???
        • 4 Years Ago
        Ya but who has the better credibility? Certainly no a self proclaimed professional!
        • 4 Years Ago
        Boy... you certainly chose the wrong arena to be discussing truth vs. untruth, authenticity vs. inauthenticity. May I recommend some Hegel? In the meantime, just enjoy the lighthearted banter that keep this, and countless other "interests" blogs afloat.

      While many deride this car's styling, I think it looks far more finished and cohesive than last generation's model. The grill is no longer a crude, upright eggcrate. The headlights actually looked like someone spent time designing them. The overall shape no longer resembles a shoebox with gunslits. The car now looks like what Chrysler set out to do in the first place, that is, classy, powerful, desirable and uniquely American rather than a rental car that looks at home in a crappy rap video. Well done, Chrysler.

      Dear AutoBlog, your article's title deceived me. I clicked thinking it was the full production photos, and got teaser photos. :/ How about "2011 Chrysler 300 teaser photos hit the web?"
      • 4 Years Ago
      I will need to warm up to this just like I did with the Grand Cherokee! Much more refined than before. Over time I think most of us will warm up too!

      Far more sophisticated design language than the first edition which I always felt was crudely rendered in the interior. This looks more akin to what a Chrysler should be. The last 300 was more of a Boxer, whereas this is more of a Fencer with a rapier. Quiet elegance with the ability to blow most sedans off the road. The ultimate Q-ship!
      • 4 Years Ago
      Just not as impact-full as the original.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Agreed, the original looks better imo.
        • 4 Years Ago
        I like the new Chrysler logo.
        • 4 Years Ago
        @Black&Blue
        Edmunds already has pictures of the 300

        http://www.insideline.com/chrysler/300/2012/2012-chrysler-300-snapped-without-camo.html

        Also, Autoweek already has driven and posted interior/exterior pics of it in their November 2010 magazine issue (Hart, Roger. "300 Again." Autoweek. November 2010. pg 30)
        • 4 Years Ago
        agreed, and not just because its a mid-cycle refresh. The new Chrysler front end is just weak, softer headlights and more tilted grill with rounded edges. not as crisp, not as muscular. the 200 is even worse.

        I do like the rear end on this though, even if the taillights make me think of a stylized Thunderbird. To note, NOT a thunderbird rear end, just that the chrome surround makes me think of a bird with the wings pointed up and parallel to each other.

        I'm sure the interior is much improved but this 'softened' front end isnt going to do the SRT or Hemi versions any favors.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Agreed and if it looks like the new 200 as a whole, I'm going to bang my head off a bed of nails in frustration!
