    Spy Shots: 2012 Chrysler 300C caught completely undisguised

    Spy Shots: 2012 Chrysler 300C caught completely undisguised
    Autoblog

    Our intrepid spy photographers have just caught the 2012 Chrysler 300C running around completely undisguised during a promotional video shoot (hence the full tint job). Now that all of the camouflage has been removed, we can clearly see the 300's reworked front and rear fascias. Up front, Chrysler's new corporate grille is flanked by stylish headlamps that use LED daytime running lamps. Out back, the taillamps are spruced up with chrome accents and a large chrome strip that runs the length of the rear bumper. It sounds like a lot of chrome, but it's quite tasteful, and looks downright sharp on a black car like this prototype.

    Much like its sister car, the Dodge Charger, expect the updated 300 to be powered by both the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 and 5.7-liter Hemi V8, with all-wheel drive available on certain models. Since Chrysler's flagship sedan is nearing the tail end of its development phase, a Los Angeles or Detroit show debut is a safe bet.

    i think it looks good. its a very simple redesign. yet its cleaner, smoother and more elegant. I think it'll look really good in person.

    Cleaner and smoother, but cleansed of the character and classic lines that made the 300 a hit.

    Finally, and unfortunately, the 300 now looks like the Sebring's older brother.

    The profile reminds me of the last-gen Altima quite a bit, especially the back end. The 300-type cues carried over seem almost like stickers, the way they are laid over the shape of it all.

    Overall, though, I like how smooth every visible panel and line appear. This makes it look high quality. I just wish the shape and details were more pleasing.

    Very nice redesign. Is it my imagination or I think viewing from the profile it got some CTS cues?

    I think it looks very clean. You can tell with the profile shots how they made changes to make the front end more aerodynamic. Now where is the SRT8 version? That should eliminate some of the chrome, make the grille a little larger for cooling purposes and make it look about perfect.
    They said it couldn't be done. That is until I did it.

    Wow that is a disappointment if I ever saw one. I like the current one far more than this. Its so bland! The back isn't so bad, but the front is completely docile.

    Bland. The front end looks like a Mercedes.

    You guys this this looks clean? Really? I can definitely see that from the side, it's very plain there. The front looks okay, but those headlights, not impressed. I like that is had LEDs, but the shape really doesn't meld well with the shape of the body. The worst part in my opinion is the rear. It looks like a JC Whitney special!

    Very bland - the opposite of what made the previous one so successful!

    Way to ruin a good looking car Chrysler. Good-bye distinctive looking American boxy front end with rectangular grille and hello melted-V generic blandness. It now looks like an Audi and a Benz got a little frisky and produced and equally generic child.

    Completely agreed.
