I said that it was not selling as well as Chrysler HOPED. The Charger outsells it and the first gen LX sold like hotcakes for it's first few years. I think Chrysler hoped for a similar success with the second gen.Chris Monaco said:Is the 300 not selling that well? Not sure that the market for large family sedans was that large, but I never got the impression that they weren't selling well.
A 300 wagon would be AWESOME. The critics would drool over it, but I'm not entirely sure the U.S. market was there. The CTS Wagon was incredible, but was killed off. In Europe, a Lancia Thema wagon has a better shot.

If we see the revival of the Dodge Magnum, a 300 wagon should be easy to make. I just hope the market is there to justify Sergio doing what he hates: two similar models in showrooms.
On another note, with the new 200 on the way, I think Dodge and Jeep have HUGE holes to fill before more models can be considered for Chrysler.
I don't believe there is a chance for a new Magnum at all. Properly, it should be a Chrysler/Lancia since the model would sell better in Europe than here. I would welcome a 300 Estate/Town and Country. As a Magnum owner, I'd prefer something a tad more upscale this time around, especially having spent some time recently in the 2013 200. The Magnum felt a bit old when I got it back, sad to say.
