Nevermind the revised engine lineup, the 300 is first, and foremost, about style. For 2011 receives a stylistic refresh at least as dramatic as that of the new Dodge Charger. Let's have a look.
Up front, the 300 adds trendy LED daytime running lights, positioned inside reshaped headlights. The C-shaped LEDs are integrated nicely and don't appear forced. Pretty much everything else you can see from the front end is new, from the Chrysler family grille to the cleaner lower fascia and more complex hood sculpting.
From a profile view, the slim greenhouse look remains, but with more chrome trim. There are new wheel designs, of course, but the door protector chrome trim pieces are gone on the new car. Without them, the 300 appears sleeker -- at least, until a shopping cart accidentally dings the doors.
The rear view of the 2011 Chrysler 300 may now be the most controversial. That's thanks largely to the revised taillights and plenty of shiny trim beneath those lights. We don't yet have official interior shots of the 2011 300, but given the attention Fiat has paid to the interiors of other 2011 Chrysler products, expect more luxury inside than ever before.
