Chrysler is set to introduce a facelifted version of its 300 sedan at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show in November, and this could be our first undisguised look at the car. Prototypes for the facelifted 300 have been spotted for several months, though these have all been heavily camouflaged.
The latest image was posted to Fiat Chrysler Automobiles enthusiast site Allpar and is alleged to be an official Chrysler release. Although it looks like the current 300 sedan, on sale since the 2011 model year, there are some subtle differences.
The grille has been revised, with the winged Chrysler logo now close to the middle of the grille instead of sitting at the top. Also, the chrome strips located on the bumper below the headlights look to be missing. Finally, the design of the lower intakes also looks new.
The facelifted 300, which will list as a 2015 model, will also receive a few tweaks in the interior. Sadly, we hear that the 300 SRT option is being dropped, since SRT has been repositioned as the official tuner for Dodge. This means that the most powerful model will likely come with a 5.7-liter HEMI V-8, although it’s also possible that the 300 SRT and its more potent 6.4-liter V-8 will continue minus the SRT badge.
Stay tuned for an update.
