    Yes, 300 reveal. As previously noted, no 6.x models.

    The two white 300s in photo #1, above the signs in foreground (10-11), one with rear camou the other without...might they be 2015 and 2014 (left to right) respectively?

    Heard pic #1 http://www.ontariostreetcar.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/IMG_2157-1350x900.jpg is the holding area where the engineers go over each pilot car before they ship it. The ones at the far right against the wall are ready to go to the holding area in pic #9 and if you look closely at pic #1 next to the wall further to the right is a fence with doors behind it leading into the building, next to the red Hellcat is a 2015 without full camo. Yes, heard it was not supposed to be outside without the black camo, but it does have a white plastic strip across the grill covering the new badge location and that plastic with a pattern on it covering the lower fascia and fog light area. pic #9 http://www.ontariostreetcar.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/IMG_2144-1350x900.jpg
    is the waiting area for covered transport.

    Those pronounced wheel arches are new, aren't they? I like them; opinion subject to change upon seeing the actual reveal, of course!

    No sheet metal change on the 300.

    And people wonder why this "reveal" is getting zero buzz and interest. No sheet metal change, no 6.4L or Hellcat option, nothing other than the 8-speed and Uconnect updates....start the fleet sales now folks.

    Is it time to start a death of Chrysler thread? Or should we just call it "the New Plymouth"?

    I mean, it's not exactly a secret. It's pretty much in the 5yr plan that they want Chrysler to be the mainstream brand. Some here just haven't accepted that yet.

    I can remember the 1956 Imperial, 1958 Imperial, and 1994 LHS actually looking elegant in some colors. I would hope some future up-scale model could follow one of those themes. I suppose under the current FCA leadership it would be a Maserati.

    A minimal change now that won't generate much sales interest will make it easy to justify switching the 300 to FWD.

    Or they are just spending less money now to save for a bigger change in 3 years. The "unintended" consequences of low sales due to a meek refresh to justify going to FWD doesn't fit the timeline of product and manufacturing design/implementation that is probably happening right now.

    Just me, I like the exterior of the 300. I have been waiting for the 300 to have the bells and whistles that the 200 and Cherokee already have.
    I know it will since the 2015 Charger has them. I am just curious where they put the "knob"and if it will have an electric parking brake. I told my dealership to call me when they have ordering info.

    The knob is on the floor console, same place as where the existing shifter is. No on the electric park brake.

    that seems mighty lazy(I am sure cost effective) but lazy when compared to how ergonomically correct the 200 shifter is.

    Works fine in the Durango, no one seems to complain about it being "lazy" or non-ergonomic.

    I read where the sheetmetal doesn't change - haven't read where the interior may or not change to accommodate The Knob(TM) a bit better.
