    That has to be a mule of some sort. Or something to throw us off. Those are clearly Chrysler 200 headlights. They don't just LOOK like 200 headlights. They ARE Chrysler 200 headlights. And they don't fit with the rest of the front end. They look completely out of place.

    Would not surprise me if they are the same as those on the 200.

    They also don't match the headlights seen on the photos from earlier this month. Furthermore, you can see where the fascia meets the fender... on the pictures from earlier this month the headlight met up with the fender. Here, not so. This is obviously a mule. I wouldn't be surprised if this was "accidentally" revealed.

    That is not the internal combustion version, hence the differences in appearance........remember, people like hybrids to look unique so they can be identified.

    Well if the new minivan is going to look like the 200 at least we will be able to say Chrysler did something about how the roof of the 200 makes it hard to get in and out of the back seat.

    Looks pretty "muley" to me.

    Funny that they focused so much on this obvious early mule and failed to see the vehicle with very different headlights behind this mule in pic 5. Looks like a new style Chrysler headlight on a van/cuv size vehicle.

    Which causes them how many sales for people who don't want their environmental choices to be broadcast to the general public? Or have "funky" styling (a-la original Insight, new Prius, etc.) that completely turns non-eco-mentalists off?

    Personally, I like the current crop of ugly, eco-friendly hybrids that people buy to broadcast their egos. Makes them easy to identify, and avoid.

    I recall two vehicles that shared taillamps and a tailgate back in the day...

    I'll let you guys figure those two out. ;)

    I also recall two vehicles that shared headlamps and rear fog lamps/reflectors in recent history.

    I'll let you guys figure THOSE out too!

    Durango?

    My favorite parts sharing example is the headlights of the Nissan 300ZX and Lamborghini Diablo.

    IDK but I might be Mr Obvious but the actual Headlight shape is taped over to Hide it even if it is Mule'ish. Very cutesy on there part but not much to draw any conclusion other than much of the current headlamp shape today is related to style and very little actual exposed clearance is needed. Jan is just around the corner.....

    I was actually hoping that the "bubbles" from the 1990s wouldn't return. Those were some of the ugliest vehicles ever produced and the worst offenders were Chrysler and Ford. Sigh...

    It's nothing more than a mule, as I said it long time ago, the family look of Chrysler will come from the 200, but wait...
    what about of our older brother ?

    I bet 2018 or 2019 will see it end up looking 200ish ;)
