Chrysler 300 S6 and 300 S8

The 2010 Chrysler 300 S6 (3.5-liter V-6 engine) and 300 S8 (HEMI® V-8 engine) add a serious, low-key look to the Chrysler 300. The 300 S6 and 300 S8 models trade-in their full-chromed grilles and fascia accents for blacked-out grilles with chromed surround and body-color fascia accents. New darkened headlamp bezels keep up the low-key look, while cleanly “shaved” doors with body-color mirrors and large 20-inch polished-face wheels, with painted pockets, hint at the 300 S6 and 300 S8’s handling potential. Chromed door handles, belt molding and daylight opening surrounds foreshadow the luxurious appointments within the vehicle.

A uniquely designed steering wheel with carbon weave is accented with red stitching and brushed silver spokes. Dark gray leather front seats feature an embroidered “300 S” logo on the seatback. Perforated dark gray suede fills the front and rear seats, seatback and seat cushion with hints of red accent beneath. The dark interior is highlighted with brushed aluminum accents on the instrument panel center stack, center console side trim and upper-door trim. Carbon-weave door-pull handles with red accent stitching finish off the interior of both 300 S6 and 300 S8 models.

The 300 S6 and 300 S8 models feature an array of user-friendly technologies including a 13-speaker Kicker brand audio system with a 322-watt amplifier and 100-watt subwoofer, uconnect® Phone, iPod Control and Sirius Satellite Radio. Additional standard convenience features include remote start, heated front seats, power driver and passenger seats, power-adjustable pedals, HomeLink universal transceiver and a tire-pressure monitoring (TPM) system. They have a performance-tuned suspension with performance shocks, steering, all-season performance Goodyear Eagle RSA tires and performance brake linings.

The 2010 Chrysler 300 S6 and 300 S8 will arrive at Chrysler dealerships in the spring of 2010.

Chrysler Town & Country Walter P. Chrysler Signature Series

The 2010 Chrysler Town & Country Walter P. Chrysler Signature Series minivans feature a 3.8-liter V-6 engine and six-speed automatic transmission, with unique Macassar Range wood trim and satin finishes on the instrument panel and doors. New, two-tone Light Shale seats with Dark Slate Gray bolsters have perforated leather and are finished with French-seamed stitching.

Chrysler PT Cruiser Couture Edition

In commemorating a decade of the Chrysler PT “Plymouth Truck” Cruiser’s timeless design, the new PT Cruiser Couture Edition has fenders and high belt line painted in Bright Silver Metallic, and upper body and roofline that recalls 1930s and 1940s era hot-rod styling in Brilliant Black Crystal Pearl with accent red pinstripe, the 2010 Chrysler PT Cruiser Couture Edition delivers a bold look. To complete the exterior appearance, chromed body-side moldings, door handles, 16-inch polished aluminum wheels and grille highlight this limited edition PT’s level of detail and style.

Chromed detail rings highlight the gloss black instrument panel’s three gauges, rotating air vents and Chrysler signature analog clock. The Pastel Slate Gray interior is highlighted by Satin Silver instrument panel and console accents, with all-new Radar Red leather or Dark Slate Gray seats to deliver a premium look and feel.

MSRP for the 2010 Chrysler PT Cruiser Couture Edition is $19,995 (including $720 destination) and arrives at Chrysler dealerships nationwide in the first-quarter of 2010.
