    Completely different car, completely different customer. I doubt theyd get cross shopped very much if at all.

    Hmh, it does not need to be a tall, comfortable yes, maybe an air suspension as an option. PHEV could be excellent selling point. Usually PHEV sedans have much smaller luggage capacity and slightly higher ground clearance compared to regular versions.

    But IMO, FWD cars have crossed huge distance in terms of handling. For that size of a FWD car and transverse engine they could get even a 55:45 weight distribution. AFAIK RWD L cars are not much better in that respect. They could put turbo I4 as base engine which can switch between Miller and Otto cycle for better fuel consumption, than PHEV as an option, and maybe turbo V6 as a top engine choice yet again with Miller cycle into play and offer it only as a AWD. IMO KN Twinster with torque vectoring at the rear as on Focus RS and some new GM models is a very nice AWD system.

    No tall as in SUV tall, but Tall in as place to put batteries and a upright comfortable seating position, with room for power adjustable rear seating and a Limousine style rear seat room. This would make it useful in place where they still have drivers.

    Its funny I have seen it in many places people either asking for a more powerful 300 or praising the 300. Why wont Chrysler give America a new SRT 300. Looking at the current SRT392 aint it time to retune that engine for more power the 392 has been around since 2010 for the 2011 model year. I do know that they updated it for 485 hp in 2014 on a 2015 model but that engine was shown with 525 hp (391 kW; 532 PS) and 510 lb·ft (691 N·m) torque back in 2009. Im sure that engine can make more than those numbers Reintroduce the SRT 300 with 550 plus hp. Charge 10k under what a hellcat starts off at say 56,999 Now Chrysler will have even more profit margin cars and a new halo car. Its just make sense get it done Chrysler and give the 300 some love.

    Yes, China. IMO, they need to introduce Chrysler brand there. There is a lot of room for Pacifica, next generation 300 and big crossover from Chrysler. It seems that Chinese are mad for crossovers. Levante is going there like a hot cake.
