    Here are my two ideas for the new 300, you'll have to click the links since I can't upload anything else today. Sorry. At least they'll be in high resolution.

    This first one was my slight update to the front of the 300 to modernize it without changing the entire concept and keeping the identity of the vehicle: http://i.imgur.com/jgtdLvk.jpg

    The second one is a total update to the front end that brings it more in line with the 200 and Pacifica, but keeps some uniqueness:

    I'm honestly torn as to which one I like better, which is why I am posting both of them.

    I think the grill should be bigger like the original.

    Both are done very, very well.

    Applying the 200-family styling the way you have is very clean, and puts that theme across very naturally.

    But you're right, the update to the existing front end is also a nice, tight interpretation. It would be great to see your thoughts on a proposed improvement to the rear of the 200-family themed 300.

    Have you contemplated an update to the arc of the roofline? Not suggesting anything; just wondering how much change you wanted to make in the large Chrysler.

    Your 'stuff' is looking good -

    My son leans much more heavily in favor of the 200-family theme ...

    I attempted to do that with the 200/Pacifica front, but the bigger grille didnt work well with the rest of the fascia and ended up looking like buck teeth.
    I could change the roofline and I have a few older chops I've done where it was a bit sleeker looking, however, this time I wanted to imagine a refresh of the 300 to modernize the front without changing the overall shape of the vehicle. Maybe an idea of what we can expect in 2018. It sounds interesting to fit the 200 styling on the boxy rear of the 300 so I'll give it a shot.

    Actually if you look at the charger the front end on the older ones is very similar to the original 300. Try it on the 300 the 200 doesn't at all look like a Chrysler to me.

    Unintentional, but very reminiscent of the S-Class coupe rear end. In a good way, hopefully.

    Straight up : Very clean; very sharp. When I was in high school back in roughly 1970, the odd slang term for that period was : " Sanitary ". A silly application of the word meaning it is thoroughly positive, 'thumbs up' .

    Dodge Grand Caravan based on the Pacifica, changed as little sheet metal as possible so it was more realistic.

    Based on what we've seen from the Compass, I envisioned a less bland Cherokee rear end. Hopefully something like it comes out of the refresh. KL Freshening.jpg

    I'll do the front soon.

    In case it was confusing somehow, this is the Grand Cherokee. The front of the new Cherokee is something I haven't started working on yet.

    A not-quite-complete Challenger I'm working on. Still has some rough edges I need to work out.

    I could see this evolving into a Cuda very easily. Nice work
