You might be thinking to yourself that Chrysler has already released full details on the new 2011 version of its popular 300 sedan, but you’d only be partially right. While we have already seen the revamped machine, Chrysler has just released a new selection of photos that really showcase the attractive lines of the barge – plus, we’re finally getting a look at the interior.
We’ll hold back on full judgement until we drive the car, but it looks to be the significant improvement that Chrysler promised. Plus, there’s a seriously large Nav screen.
In case you missed the earlier reports, the 300 will be available with Chrysler’s new Pentastar 3.6-liter V6 and optional 5.7-liter V8 with new cylinder deactivation technology to help save fuel.
We’ll bring you more details from the official debut at the Detroit Auto Show in January 10th.

Chrysler has revealed numerous photos of its new 300 sedan ahead of its official reveal at the Detroit Auto Show in January.
The pics are actually a series of close-up teasers, meaning that while you can’t see what the entire vehicle will look like, it shouldn’t be hard if you have an imagination. After all, the 2011 300 sedan isn’t a totally new vehicle, but is just one of numerous refreshed platforms for the 2011 season – a list that includes the Town & Country minivan, as well as numerous Dodge products like the Journey, Grand Caravan and Avenger.
Along with redesigned headlights, taillights, a new trunk design and a new grille the 2011 300 will come with a new 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 under the hood, making close to 300-hp and 260 ft-lbs of torque. Also expect a 5.7-liter Hemi V8-powered model using cylinder deactivation to improve fuel economy. Both RWD and AWD versions will be available.
