    A FWD Chrysler 300 based on CUSW was in development several years ago.

    That does not mean something based on Ghibli or using the Giorgio platitecture cannot happen.

    The hint was that development of the next gen 300 was in progress several years ago........well, a FWD version was in development several years ago.

    Just hope they will not put it on hold again, this has been a common practice in the past.
    you know we NEED A NEW 300

    They might take out from the freezer some products.

    The 300 has a lot of people who are waiting for something really new, I know we have it, just hope they will let it be.

    Charger and Challenger are also in the nned for a new design, so let them roll.

    You could have said that in your first 2 posts, but you're missing the point - the tall first and second gear only matter in the launch. The FDR of the Mopar 12 was 3.25, and with the 8 speed the FDR is 2.05!

    You are still to not consider all 8 gear ratios in terms or everyday performance and drivability. Because of the 8 gear ratios a tall final drive is not required.

    Maybe go drive one and see how it really performs instead of continuing to argue about it.

    C300 makes Edmunds Most Wanted
    by David Zatz on December 27, 2017 at 2:25 pm EST

    The Chrysler 300 was Edmunds’ 2018 Most Wanted Vehicle in the large car category; that was based on sales, average inventory age, and Edmunds shopper interest data.

    [​IMG]

    Edmunds hasn’t released the news yet, but last year, there were 16 cars on the list. The 300 appears to be the only FCA US vehicle, and likely the only FCA vehicle, to have made it.

    David Zatz founded Allpar in 1998 (based on a site he had begun in 1993-94), after years of writing reviews for retail trades. He has been quoted by the New York Times, the Daily Telegraph, the Detroit News, and USA Today. Before making Allpar a full-time career, he was a consultant in organizational psychology. You can reach him by using our contact form (much preferred) or by calling (313) 766-2304



    I put this here just to highlight thats two awards that the 300 has gained. FCA lets give the 300 some special edition love while we wait for the redesign. Im sure you have some nice new editions along with a 6.4 you could throw in until we wait for 2021 redesign.

    Let the record show that the 300 was the only non suv/minivan based vehicle to get an award in 2017 with little to no marketing on FCA part. But not only did it get one it got two. Just for the record. I hope FCA is paying attention. Kudos to the 300.

    300 has always prevalent here in Southeast Michigan... especially when they are AWD. Bet 8/10 300 models here are AWD.

    in addition, 70% of all vehicles on the road here in metro detroit are leased....the rear wheel drive 300S have nicer rims..AWD rims are flat (no lip) and look plastic

    I think it's called "Tim's Café" in the US. Just like how Boston Pizza is called "Boston's" in the US.

    Blasphemy.

    Same here in Pittsburgh, though not as common as Detroit. Lots of AWD 300's. More than Chargers.
    I see more Darts too. I think Pittsburgh hasn't embraced the change to CUVs and SUVs as fast as some other areas.

    Well in philadelphia 300's are plentiful in both rwd and awd. Pennsylvania has to be a top 5 state for 300s. When I think about it it's kinda a big FCA state because there is alot of chargers also.
