    Now that you say it...
    But the 200 concept still looks good, lots of them do, 99 charger etc. Mazda could come out with the 93 RX7 all over again and nobody would bat an eye.

    The 99 charger aged poorly, imo; but the rest, yeah.

    A side by side of the 200Ce and VISION CONCEPTS might reveal some clues to the direction of a NEW CHRYSLER 300.

    The camaro front end aged badly I'd agree but the general style and shape of the car could be updated nicely

    It’s a nice blend of Chrysler and Maserati, and fun for a rendering. I’m sure if Chrysler gets a CUV for a 300 replacement it will be uniquely Chrysler. I hope the next released Chrysler we will see the new direction of Chrysler’s styling. It cannot come soon enough.

    Ford Fusion/MKZ will be gone this summer. Maybe they are waiting for even less competition (Maxima and Impala and who knows what else might be gone in the next 12 months?) and then they will strike:

    (just substitute Maserati with Dodge and Chrysler).

    They can do a lot of things. The question is will they? I don't get the hesitation with the Chrysler brand. They should have made an SUV/CUV before they did the 200 but that's water under the bridge

    They did—it was the Pacifica, then it was the Aspen, then it wasn’t anything when sales never materialized.

    The Aspen came at the wrong time. The Pacifica was supposed to continue but Sergio canceled it.

    I question whether a Chrysler SUV would even be worthwhile. There are so many CUV options right now that Chrysler would have to do something really special to stand out. If they base it on the Grand Commander and don't give it any standout features or design, they're going to end up with another boring blob that doesn't sell.

    In other words...they would end up with another Dodge Dart / Chrysler 200...a good vehicle in many respects, but not a GREAT vehicle in any.

    Yes, any Chrysler suv/cuv is so late to the game as to be almost worthless in terms of sales.
    I have heavily advocated for a DT version to be a Chrysler first, and then whatever else after. Chrysler needs to make a 'splash' with its next vehicle, and a large, luxurious, family hauler would be perfect for the Brand. Offer a hybrid, and regular powertrain options, make it a direct competitor for suburban and escalade, depending on trim options, and BTW, keep it in production long enough to actually develop a following.

    There would be very little incentive to buy that over a comparable Wagoneer or Grand Wagoneer that's sold right across the showroom.

    There are no good options for Chrysler products right now other than a lineup of unique, all-electric vehicles IMO.

    And even then, the market for all-electric vehicles is small enough that Chrysler likely wouldn't sell enough to make a profit on them.

    Very true. That's the only niche I can think of that makes sense for Chrysler. There is more flexibility with the design of BEVs so they can create some unique vehicles instead of just re-skinning Jeeps.

    Otherwise, if they're just going to have watered down Jeeps, the brand should just be cut.
