I personally love the current Chrysler wings. It's sleek and modern. I hope they keep it and evolve it over time.

I did find it strange on the rear it reads "AIRFLOW" instead of having the Chrysler logo. But it actually looks good that way.
It reminds me of how easy it would make it to pop in a Fiat bar for other markets.

Hopefully the engineer out some of the obvious issues and some of the less practical design choices. Glass rooves on cars are stupid. They are heavy, have poor thermal conductivity and transmit light. They do poorly in roll over situations. But every car designer who drives a Tesla right now wants to stick one on.
That sloped rear roof line looks silly. It's much more practical to have a flat hatch giving more cargo capacity. It reduces the weight of the hatch making it easier to open and close.
White interiors get dirty easily.
The floating center console I am not too sure about. It looks out of place, especially compared to how well it's done in the Grand Wagoneer. But it does come closer to the driver so they don't need to reach as far. The steering wheel controls are needlessly capacitive touch.

I do like how the integrated the sunvisor.

With EVs comes the possibility of a cab over mini-van.

I agree. I thought all white interiors went away in the 80's when they deserved to be put to rest. When they age they age like crap and get dirty very easily.

I also don't understand the need to put glass roofs on cars, its stupid and needs gone.

Simplified wing logo on all my interiors:

Vehicle Car Gear shift Motor vehicle Speedometer

Newport

Vehicle Speedometer Automotive design Motor vehicle Plant

Atlantic

Speedometer Car Gear shift Steering part Vehicle

Concorde/Aspen/Pacifica

Sigma and Sigma+ get the 3 spoke from the DS4, which would be similar.

Town & Country keeps the Pentastar.

Imperial keeps the Eagle logo.

"Right now the Chrysler brand really only has two vehicles, the 300 sedan and Pacifica minivan. But as Chris Feuell, the CEO of Chrysler, points out, it's been missing a utility vehicle from the lineup. That's why its next all-new vehicle will be a crossover and the Airflow Concept is a strong representation of what that vehicle will be, including its in-vehicle technology." - Autoline

Each to his own. My 70 Duster 340. White interiors pop. Should have seen my Dad's 71 Chrysler 300, April Green metallic over white. Spectacular looking thing.

It seems the Airflow concept takes a mix from Stella's Euro brands, Japanese (in particular Mazda CX-series CUV's). This is the best direction they can go, the mid-luxury bracket, competitively and value priced vs. Tesla, Mazda, Volvo, Lincoln, BMW, Audi, Lexus CUV's. They do have to have the range and fast charging, full EV's with 300 Miles+, ability to recharge from 20% to 80% in 10 minutes with a fast charger, overnight with a home one. Quality will have be better than Tesla, especially as to body parts, ability to get repair parts. As will be sold via modified traditional dealer markets, they can get MSRP, minimize haggling.
