ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

While Chrysler has recently shown off updated versions of many models from its minivans to the popular Jeep Wrangler and Dodge Charger, it has yet to officially unveil a new version of its popular 300 large sedan. That hasn’t stopped the automaker from slowly revealing photos of the revised 300, with the first interior shots shown here.

With an intended debut at Detroit’s North American International Auto Show in January, the updated 300 will be an important vehicle for Chrysler. The automaker’s first-generation 300, which debuted in 2004 as a 2005 model, quickly became a high-volume seller for Chrysler, surpassing sales expectations and earning praise for its outgoing styling and notable road presence.

Although the old model boasted popular exterior styling, it drew criticism for its low-budget interior – clearly a priority for Italian automaker Fiat, now at Chrysler’s helm. Tuesday’s interior photo shows many of the old model’s deficits remedied, with a new steering wheel, high-end wood grain trim, upgraded door armrests, and a more stylistically-arranged center console. But the most noticeable change comes in the center of the dashboard, where a now-standard touch screen sits between two climate control vents.

It’s not just the interior that will be new in Chrysler’s revised 300. The automaker has released other details on changes to the sedan, which range from available cooled seats to a power rear sunshade. Chrysler even says that a panoramic sunroof will be on the 300’s options list. Of course, the new 300 will also boast revised styling, including re-tooled front and rear ends.

Chrysler says it has also made significant progress on the 300 behind the scenes. According to Chrysler, the new model’s ride will be quieter than the ride in the last-generation 300 due to the addition of two composite underbody panels intended to eliminate road noise from the cabin. Going the extra mile to ensure a more luxurious ride, Chrysler also added a dual-pane acoustic windshield, triple seal doors, and even acoustic wheel-well liners intended to help reduce interior noise.

When the new 300 goes on sale in the first quarter of 2011, engines will include Chrysler’s well-known 5.7-liter V8, formerly dubbed the “Hemi” V8, and the automaker’s heavily-praised new “Pentastar” 3.6-liter V6.
