    Is there any word or images of the next gen 300? Or will Segio also kill this vehicle?

    He plans to loosen the torquing of all Chrysler 300 screws to meet FIAT specifications.

    I just hope it doesn't turn into the Journey: oldest design on the lot, and it looks the part.

    Despite the "refresh" 300 has lost ground faster than the average of the full size car market in the last 5 years. In 2012, 300 was 13% of the large car market, in 2017 it was 11%.
    Those numbers, despite "high"margins means the 300 is probably safe until the real replacement of the LX based cars. However, if the 300's sales share continue to drop and the large car market continues to shrink the "new" 300 is far from a sure thing in 2020/2021/whenever the long delayed replacements show.

    Chrysler 300 stays through 2021 and sounds like it will survive long after 2021 as a RWD/AWD sedan.

    And presumably get a refresh with its cousins in the next year or so? Will the creator of this thread be seeing what those look like this year?

    Sorry, but whenever someone mentions Sergio "killing" a vehicle I think of this picture and a sweater-wearing Roman giving the signal to finish it off. Maybe it's because he's Italian (by way of Canada??) or maybe I'm just slowly going insane with two toddlers...probably the latter....

    I have witnessed the next gen charger but not the 300. Chrysler test engineers are more created than ever. LOL

    There is a solid case to keep the 300 where it is...

    Absolutely and I'm very pleased they see the value in keeping the 300 RWD/AWD. Just wondering if the idea of a large FWD Chrysler sedan might come to fruition although there are much more pressing needs in the product category.
