Overall the new 300 has the same shape as the current model, although its more refined. The front end gets the new Chrysler grille that has been slapped on the Town & Country minivan and 200 sedan. The headlights also now have LEDs embedded in them. The slab sides and sharp creases of its predecessor have now been smoothed out given the car a softer look.
Under the hood the 2011 300 gets Chrysler’s new Pentastar V6 that puts out 292-hp and 260 lb-ft. of torque. The HEMI 5.7L V8 is also available and puts out 360-hp and 390 lb-ft. of torque. The power is put to the ground through standard rear-wheel-drive, but all-wheel-drive is optional.
