2013 Chrysler 300C John Varvatos Limited Edition

Who is John Varvatos? If you're like me, that's the question you were asking after seeing commercials that advertised a limited-edition model of the Chrysler 300 with this mystery man's name attached. If you're not like me and consider yourself a fashionista even in the slightest, then you probably already know that John Varvatos is a successful menswear designer who cut his teeth in the fashion houses of Ralph Lauren's Polo and Calvin Klein. He's also a native of Detroit, which makes the joining of his brand and that of Chrysler's more intelligible, what with the Auburn Hills-based... Read More

    Official: Chrysler marks return to China with 300 Ruyi design concept

    Considering the rate at which the Chinese market gobbles up Buick models, you'd think it would be a prime market for Chrysler. Yet the House of the 300 wasn't present in China at all in recent years, as the brand has just announced at the Beijing Motor Show its return to the Chinese market. In the coming months, it will begin selling both the 300C and ...

    Chicago: 2012 Mopar 300 dialed M for Murdered Out

    Our first face-to-face look at the murdered-out Mopar 300 occurred at the Chicago Auto Show today. Peel away the black hood and you will find the the company's familiar 5.7-liter V8 as standard equipment. Output remains at 363 horsepower, but a new final-drive ratio of 3.91:1 working in conjunction with its five-speed W5A580 automatic transmission should ...

    New York 2011: Chrysler's new 300C Executive Series brings the swank, monocle not included
    1303394280

    Chrysler says its new 2012 300C Executive Series is poised to be "the most luxurious Chrysler flagship sedan ever." That's a pretty tall order, but one quick glance at the Executive Series' spec sheet makes us think that The Pentastar may have hit the nail right on the head. What makes the 300C Executive Series so swanky, you ask? For starters, the ...

    We may have fallen all over the 2012 Dodge Charger SRT8 that debuted this past February at the 2011 Chicago Auto Show, but if we're honest, The Pentastar's latest LX-platform creation – the 2012 Chrysler 300 SRT8 – is the one we'd want to take home. In its previous generation, this car was one of our favorite guilty pleasures, and with all of ...

    The redesigned 2011 Chrysler 300 took a leap forward in refinement, but the large sedan's makeover didn't come with an SRT8 variant. No worries, though, because the all-new, more powerful and damn sharp-looking 2012 Chrysler 300 SRT8 is debuting today at the 2011 New York Auto Show. There's a lot to go over on this new 300 SRT8, but we wouldn't waste a ...

    Lancia brings rebadged Chrysler models to join facelifted Delta in Geneva

    Once upon a time, it used to be that an automaker would debut one, maybe two new products at a car show. Then Lotus came along and blew 'em all out of the water with five new concept cars. Now Lancia is preparing to roll across the Alps and into Geneva with – how many? – six new debuts. Is the quasi-premium Italian automaker following the ...

    The Chrysler 300C was the brand's savior when it went on sale back in 2005, but six years is a long time to stand behind a boxy, gangsta-looking sedan with a grille ripped off a Bentley. Team Pentastar finally got around to overhauling the 300 for 2011, with changes that include a new powertrain, sleeker sheet metal, a vastly superior interior, fancy ...

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 ...

    Detroit 2010: Chrysler 300 S6 and S8 are reminders of Mopar magic
    1263219540

    Chrysler made one of the past decade's strongest design statements with the 2005 introduction of the 300. The rear-wheel-drive sedan with blocky styling was a knockout with both the general consumer and, maybe more specifically, the aftermarket. Five years on and the 300 is still a SEMA favorite. Sometimes, modded 300s look pretty swank. Of course, ...

    Chrysler has carefully picked its words, saying that the 300 S6 and 300 S8 are all-new models that build on the rear-wheel-drive sedan's roots. Don't fret, the cosmetic updates are welcome; there's a new blacked-out grille this year and 20-inch alloys to fill out those classic bold wheelarches. The S6 and S8, while blatantly ripping off Audi nomenclature ...

It heralds the date of January 1, 2010, and since it has a picture of the Chrysler 300 we'd like to think there will be something new announced for the six-year-old sedan.
