    But does it fit the SRT product image?
    I have to disagree with you here. I think the rotary dial fits the Durango Citadel image perfectly and as a owner I love it. Looks classy and is simple to operate and is out of the way.
    However, I think its out of place in the Durango R/T which should have and now does have a T-shifter. The dial doesn't fit its image. I don't think it works in the 300 either.
    Would it be a deal breaker for me? No, but it would be the first mod I would look to do, swap in the Charger shifter.

    Not sure what sales of the Hemi are in the 300 currently, but I would rather the 300 just be offered with the V6 and 392. I vote just drop the 5.7L and have the C come with the 392 standard.

    Just call it the Chrysler 392. You could have 392S and 392C variants depending on whether the customer wants black accents or chrome.

    I need to sift so shifter paddles are a must, don't care about the motor much but can understand hp requirements of others.

    Good idea but I doubt they would call it that when there are Dodge's with 392 badges on their fenders as well. I'd think if they brought it back it would be under another name entirely, like the trackhawk.

    Chrysler 300 Firepower (but then it would need the hellcat engine or go all out and put the demon in it and send it out with a bang)

    You have a point if the 300SRT does as well as I think it will FCA will probably rethink the hellcat engine in the model.
    So I would keep the firepower name just in case they entertain the hellcat engine and call the 300SRT the 300CS or 300CR
    I actually like them both 300C sport edition, which could also be the 300C stealth edition = 300CS or 300C Racing edition for 300CR. The 300CS has a nice feel to it 300C stealth edition.

    Dodge has SRT, Jeep has Trailhawk/Trackhawk but Wrangler and Ram have model names like Rubicon and Power Wagon. I don't think Chrysler would go with an SRT/Trailhawk sub-brand but rather a specific model name since it's for a specific vehicle (300), like the Wrangler and Ram. Personally, if a powered by SRT 300 is in the cards, I'd like to see it called a 300 Imperial.

    What about 300 S+ for Hellcat, and 300 S++ for Demon engine :)

    So 2018 Challenger has awesome colors like Plum Crazy and B5 and F8 and Octane....

    The question is, what will the '19 with the Demon-trickle-down models have? Plum Crazy is a MUST HAVE, unless Sublime were to return (not likely, but I keep hoping).

    How about Grand 300 or even better Gran 300 so everyone can mess up the name.

    I’m only joking- if it comes to be, the interior needs to be premium

    I love it it's perfect, make It please. 300 super S
    It will be amazing, I know I don't know if they will make it but I'm so happy and excited for the possibility. This is the car I want as long as it has the 6.4 liter engine.

    If FCA wants to really make money make a 300 super S with all the S features and 6.4 engine. Then double down and make a 300 imperial and give it the jeep summit treatment along with the 6.4 liter engine. It's a win win. Just build it baby. I'm excited I havent been this excited about an potential FCA product since I brought my third 300 the 2005 300C that I ordered and it took forever. It had the 5.7 which was the biggest you could buy with tortoise wood. Which was revolutionary in an American everyday car

    You could clone that pretty easily out of a 300S 5.7 with a wrap and wheels ^

    I'm all for Chrysler reviving the Imperial name, but sure as hell not on a 300. The Imperial and 300 have always been totally different... the 300 a sporty, luxurious muscle car. The Imperial, a boat, floating on air, with all the tech and gizmos one could throw at it. Make a 300 SRT, fine. Make an Imperial, fine. Don't make them one in the same.

    I may just be one guy, but I sincerely believe Chrysler would be doing themselves a disservice by combining those two models. Although, while on the topic... if the next-gen 300 is going to ride of the Gorgio platform (or whatever is under the Guilia), then why not take the platform of the Maserati Quattroporte (or updated version, I hope) and make a new Imperial, along the same veins as the Cadillac CT6, BMW 5/6 series (otherwise known as, coupe, convertible, sedan), Mercedes-Benz E-Class... I think Chrysler could do it. Although, I'm sure that'd somehow compete with the Quattroporte...

    I remember this it's a 300 with a stage 3 scat pack I seen it at sema 2015 I believe. Anyway I also remember 300 turbine edition in 2013 at sema it was a hot orange color. #JustBuildThe300WithA6.4Liter
