300 - Redesign
A new version of one of Chrysler's biggest hits, the 300, is expected next year. The image shown here is a rendering shown in Chrysler's restructuring plan. It may not look exactly like the final design.

The 300, introduced in 2004, was supposed to herald a new age for Chrysler. Its brash, chest-out look was a marked change from the sloping, futuristic designs the brand had previously been known for. It wasn't uniformly loved, but it got attention and brought in buyers.

The 300 looked much more expensive than it was, and it drove like a pricier car too. The flagship 300C version also had the famously-named Hemi V8 engine that gave it surprising power.

The 300C won all kinds of awards, including Motor Trend Car of the Year, and Chrysler still boasts that it is the "most award-winning car in history."
