    I hate that website. In any event, that's not a 300.

    Most of the commentators have already agreed, it's a 200 in its cammo. The question is why.

    Maybe to hide the aero tweaks for a stop start system and a HFE model? It's probably not an SRT.. Because Dodge.

    Or someone just was lazy on the camo removal. There are still vehicles running around MI with camo partially on/off.

    Not even close, the next 300 will use some styling cues from the much loved Chrysler 200C EV Concept though. Chrysler had so many 2015 200 prototypes running around at one point, some of the high mileage testers still have their original camo on them. I see them every once in a while around the Rochester Hills area near Crooks Road.

    There are a few HFE 2015 200 models out there. However, the ones I have seen wheel covers with data instruments coming from the center of the wheel caps. What looks to be 17" wheels. Camo just over the front end and a very small lip spoiler on the rear of the trunk lid, similar to the new 2015 Dodge Charger R/T spoiler.

    Looks better than the current 300. The shape/ profile of the 300 is getting a little old now.

    if indeed the new 200 is the face of future chrysler...is it realistic to expect to see the concepts big grill on the next 300??

    doubtful, he said they would use some styling cues from that concept.

    If Chrysler makes its flagship sedan look like a stretched 200, with huge overhangs and a timid grille, it will shoot itself in the foot.

    While 200 can look "efficient", 300 needs to look "successful".

    A proper flagship NEEDS to look big and rich. The role of the 300 should be to build aspiration and showroom traffic... to sell tons of 200s.

    They have a lot of work to do with the 300, frankly the front of the car, grill, headlamps are not for such a car, they better come with something real different, we need a sharp looking car.

    Agree 100%, just hope that Chrysler's interpretation of that is still conservatively classy and not a tacky copy of the 200 look.
    I've got nothing against the look of the 200, but it ain't gonna look good on a more "formal" shaped 300 body.

    The current 300 is neither tired or in need of a revamp, IMO. It's an exceptionally well proportioned car that achieves a great balance between muscularity and refinement. ( A Linebacker wearing Armani is how I always think of the 300 )

    Chrysler would do very well to IMPROVE the current version, not by throwing out the baby with the bath water. The recent refresh has made a world of difference to the original, and I can't wait to see the new(er) car this fall.

    The 300 is an absolutely unique vehicle that offers SO much more than anything else at its level ( including Charger ), that they must be extremely careful what they do to it.

    This is Chrysler's 'halo' vehicle and it needs to stay that way.

    Man.. it just needs a better interior...the current interior looks really cheap, to me thats one reason why the SRT version is getting scraped... not worth the 60K price tag.

    Interesting idea... Chrysler should start its own "Brand" just for "Luxury touches"... Call it Imperial. it would Have nothing to do with performance, just based on the Top Trim models.....Basically Import Maserati Interior materials for Imperial versions of Chryslers.... Chrysler 300 & 200 "Imperial" sounds cool

    Umm... I beg your pardon? The current 300 interior is fantastic. The fact that in 2012 it was honored as one of Ward's 10 Best Interiors tells me you're just typing out of your seat warmer.

    Don't believe me:
