    Your right
    Your right oversight on me. I didn't even see the 300 right there in black and white.
    Lastly yes the 300 super S was really nice. FCA pulls all the stops out at sema.

    Ok i have been looking at that sinamon stick color all day if next year that color comes on a 300 I'm putting in a order I don't care if it's the last year of production or not. That on a 300 is the closest I seen to the 300 turbine concept from years ago.

    That matte orange on the 300S Turbine Concept was epic...

    It seems like the 300 is destined to be discontinued by Chrysler. However, it would be nice if Chrysler put out some of these special edition 300's before it "dies". I would like to see the 300 go out with a bang.

    Just thinking that when Viper was discontinued SRT came out with five special final editions of the Viper each in very limited numbers (25 to 100 cars per edition). The special editions were mostly paint, stripe, wheels, and interior color type of modifications, although some had the ACR pieces. This was a final tribute to the Viper. As I recall these five special editions sold out within days.

    I personally think that the 2005 300 has been a design that really brought interest back to Chrysler. This design is now in it's 13th year and to many still attractive today. It would be fitting to bring out some special editions of the 300 as a final tribute to this iconic model which can trace it's heritage back to the 1950's. It would not cost FCA a lot to create a few special editions. As we have seen FCA has come out with a number of special editions for the Challenger within the last year.

    So....outside of potentially getting a splash of color and a “toe tag”, any other info on the 300 refresh? Styling updates (front/rear fascia)?

    I was afraid you'd say that....I did find a couple of beautiful used 2017 300S with the HEMI in blue with the stone interior loaded.....and they were at least $10-15k under MSRP. Big BIG depreciation hit for a year....

    I recently ordered a 2018 300C and purchased it for about $12K under MSRP. If used 2017's are running $10-15k under MSRP it doesn't seem like too bad of a depreciation hit at all. Actually the depreciation IS miserable on these cars. Apparently the dealer you are looking at just jacks the prices on their used cars way up since I'm sure these sold for $8-10K off when new.

    I wasn't sure of last year's MSRP.....I built a comparable 2018 and the dealer's "list price" was $13k less than MSRP for a loaded "S" with 6k miles. If it sold for $12k less than MSRP, you're absolutely right. Not everyone got one at the end of the model year for that deep a discount though. Figure they averaged $6k less than MSRP, which is about 15% off.....

    Ugh....just ugly for the brand overall.

    I bought a used 2017 300C 3 weeks ago for $23K under MSRP + destination charge.

    I'm waiting until after June 5th FCA meeting to make my purchase decision I will be either waiting for the refresh or buying a 2017 fully loaded platinum. I don't know why I hold out hope I realize I have a tough time letting go, I keep saying I moved on but it's articles like the one in motortrend dated today that pulls me back in.
