    Very interested at first but my mind wandered when I saw the part about "Hybridized or Electrified".

    I like it and if it had a third option of the new inline six, it would be on my buy list.

    Not feeling it. Too much Cadillac styling in the front end and it looks like trunk space is less.

    It can have a frunk if it’s all electric.

    That’d be a worthy successor.

    Frunk sounds like something Joe Pesci and Ray Liotta would say in Goodfellas. :D

    Without a doubt, it would be a word meaning any or all of George Carlin's immortal "Seven Deadly Words You Can't Say On Television"!:D

    Yes...Most especially if the next 300 were full electric only.

    My big hope is that...in an effort to put the 300 on a diet, that they can increase the use of Aluminum and Carbon Fiber.
    I would also hope they increase the use of PPE and ABS for other body parts / components (think Saturn S-Series Cars).

    Get the 300 to Weight Loss Boot Camp! There isn't a moment to spare!!:p:D

    Since we're talking about the future of the 300, I'm hoping THIS man has a great deal to do with the design.

    Just in case anyone missed it, Ralph Gilles had a little something to say the other day:

    I for one I’m glad to see FCA ditch those absurd designs it had been touting on recent Chrysler concepts —Portal, 700, etc.— for something that generates a more positive emotional response...and less aversion.

    This image has nothing to do with FCA.. It's pure speculation by carscoops, and not very well informed speculation at that (they suggest using the midsized, small-engines, FWD Peugeot 508 as the basis of the large, RWD 300 when FCA already has work in process for Maserati's LX-based cars that would be a far better fit).

    I would have liked to see a new Dodge or Chrysler based on the Ghibli, which feels really nice as a driver, but... it's going Giorgio.

    What's the purpose of a massive grille on an electric car?

    They even mention it's just an imagination exercise.

    Just a fun what if. If FCA updated their cars more often we wouldn't have to resort to so many what if scenarios.

    I really like this rendering, exactly where Chrysler needs to be, IMO. Of course everything can be tweaked, but essentially, this car is a worthy replacement for the 300, design wise. It should offer some kind of hybrid electric, and the new inline 6, or the current Maserati 3 litre. At around 420 HP, with AWD, who needs a hemi? Edit: I love the clamshell doors, a must-have ,especially for China and the the black car market.

    Brand identifying trademark. You take the grille off a BMW and Stacy wouldn't even know what it was

    I’d prefer it to be a smooth, fake piece like on the Mach E.

    Yup, a smooth piece makes it MUCH easier to keep clean. I was thinking about a honeycomb design with a flat back for all of ten seconds before I thought, “That would take two hours to clean.”
