Earlier this month, we got our first look at the 2011 Chrysler 300, but aside from a handful of shots, were left to subsist mostly on detail close-ups. No more.

The 2011 300 takes the look of its unique, but aging predecessor and transforms it, subtly, into something new. The same basic silhouette remains, but there's a lot more to catch the eye from certain angles. The one angle we're not quite in love with yet: the trunk lid's is-it-a-spoiler-or-a-dent look.

Check out the full gallery above, and head over to our preview article for more details, including specs and pricing. Expect to see the real deal at the 2011 Detroit Auto Show.
