    The 2015 Chrysler 300C has been inadvertently revealed by Chrysler itself, in an optional image for its navigation systems.

    As Allpar sources predicted, the car has dropped the chrome underneath the headlamps and moved the Chrysler wings to the top …

    They stripped the face off the front of the car & rounded the center to make it look Audi-ish!

    Not attractive anymore!

    It should be noted that MoparBob is using the guestimate rendering by Jack, not the actual photo of the new 300.

    Hmmm guess I'll be holding on to my 13' C Hemi for alittle bit longer. Atleast until the 2016 Cadillac LTS comes out. Elegance is no longer on the menu at Chrysler it appears.

    To me the new design isn't a win or a loss, more like a draw. At least that's my opinion without seeing the rear for the 2015.

    Why did they bother? Not enough difference between the new and the old and the look certainly isn't enhanced or made to have a family resemblance to the 200. Money poorly spent. I predict that sales will fall off for this car.

    Yeah for now I find the '14 face more attractive.

    I can hardly tell on that tiny, grainy image. You all have much better eyesight than I do. I will reserve judgement.

    Hoping the interior gets more changes, but I'm not expecting too much.

    I was hoping they would drop the goofy headlights but instead they went wiht the Audi oversized grille. Not liking it, myself.

    OHH OHH I KNOW!

    "Hey, what we had wasn't working very well, so I have an idea, lets do MORE of it and see if THAT works"

    Someone needs to be slapped on this one. LOL

    Dodge styling right now? A
    Jeep: B+ ( KL hurts them )
    Chrysler: C- ( 200 is the only decent thing left )
    Ram: A

  14. It's almost as if they are intentionally trying to kill this car. Whatever they spent on this so called refresh, was a complete waste of time and money. Chrysler is better then this.

    This is the problem when your favorite hits a home run 90% of the time.... a triple can seem disappointing.

    Appropriate anaology if this could be considered a triple.

    This is more like a sacrifice bunt in the 1st inning with no outs and no one on base.

    I think the new location of the Chrysler emblem looks kinda tacky, but other than that it doesn't look much different.

    Perhaps, but when the new Charger was revealed... I was a little more than not happy. Now though, I see the current Charger and it looks as dated as the 1st gen (current era) does... and the 15's are looking downright handsome.

    This goes back to my discussion thread about the 300 needing to be totally DIFFERENT & ALL - NEW. The car basically has retained the same or similar shape since it's introduction in 2006.

    It looks like Fiat/Chrysler can't do anything more with this car or even want's to since it has Daimler DNA on the car still.

    Just my .02.

    Looks kind of homely to me.
    We have been talking that Chrysler is now just Plymouth with chrome.
    Now it has less chrome.

    Personally I'm at a loss to understand what direction they are trying to go with Chrysler.
    I guess they could be trying to present a transition look between the old and whatever comes next.
