300, Grand Cherokee, Durango and Charger images leaked

64 posts in this topic

Chrysler's restructuring/viability PDF showed off some interesting stuff, with mention to the 200C's possible production among other things. Noteworthy are leaked images of the next gen 300, GC, Charger, and Durango. How accurate anything these are (outside of the Grand Cherokee) is unknown, as the others are in the relatively early development process..

Very interesting. I like that illustration of a 4th gen GC, the front end reminds me of the last of the 2nd gen models (2004).

I'm disappointed with the 300, it looks like a new nose grafted on the current car. I'm hoping it's nothing more than a Photochop to give an idea what the car will ve like without giving the final design away.

I like the GC..although the profile image is crap, there's enough to make out that it's not a refresh.

Charger looks interesting...I'm not sure I like how it lost its signature belt line kink, but it is cleaner and has a more athletic stance.

Durango gives me a Sequoia vibe.

Wow, I really hope the 300 does not look like that. Same goes for the Durango; it's as if every new generation of Durango manges to out-ugly its predecessor.

The Grand Cherokee on the other hand, looks like it'd be really cool!

The 300 image would have made for a good refresh, not a redesign.

I agree Captainbooyah, the first gen Durango is the best looking, and that image is helping to keep the track record.

The proposed Charger now has a greater resemblance to the 1999 concept car. Interestingly, it doesn't look all that dated.

I sure hope the production 300 has a driver's side mirror. :P

The Grand Cherokee looks really nice, and based on profile alone, I like that rendering of the next Durango much better than the current one.

The image of the GC looks like a LAST gen X5 met a GMT-900 Tahoe and stole it's headlights. Not unattractive by any means...just a mix of already seen that.

love what they did to the charger! they got rid of the ugly ass hump on the rear quarter! looks nicer, almost athletic!

the 300, not at all.

the interiors that are new look deritive and korean. no imagination whatsoever. guess an 08 or 09 would be the 300 that i would want then.....since they killed magnum.

3 chances to do the interior right on this car and they failed all three times. any word on a competent v6 ( which is what this car needs, a 300hp DI v6 and AWD 6 speed tranny).

I see they got rid of the moronic steering wheel too! yeay!

The interiors are unexciting but pleasant, better than the current ones. The exteriors... meh. I thought Chrysler styling was supposed to be moving away from the "edge" theme.

Also I think the cars in the pics are complete 3D models, not photochops. But the whole presentation still looks amaturish.

Are we just talking about the terrible side profile of the Charger posted above as I could not find any image in the 177 doc of the charger that is better than this

There are existing full-size sedans that get 28 mpg and full-size SUVs that get 25 mpg.

Chrysler's viability depends on whether it can create a business model for their EVs.

Please point to me which CHM-900 has has thin headlights like that. I'm dying to know. It looks like what it is: an evolution of the current GC.

So you can tell interior quality based on a tiny 3D model huh? Reg you never cease to amaze me.

You should really pay attention more often: next LX cars will have the new Phoenix V6 engines,s one of the most advanced V6 engines in the world, and at least some version of the powertrain will be hooked up to an 8-speed automatic.

the jeep looks dumb.

That comment is dumb.

I like the look of that GC. I've always liked them (maybe the current one not so much), and I wish I lived somewhere that would really take advantage of its capabilities.

I actually really dig the current GC, especially when it's lowered with the big wheels. In SRT-8 form, it looks incredibly badass, and in my opinion, better than the Cayenne's, and RR Sports.

These look like crappy Photoshops of the current models, based on the design themes they're working on for the next gens. The interiors also look very strange.

Well the Jeep interior is at least somewhat accurate as it matches the spy shot we've seen. The renders themselves are pretty primitive though.

I like the 300. I'm glad they did not totally re-do the car. My wife wants one pretty bad. We will see

Only been one of those. The SRT-8 is pretty cool. I like the Overland trim also.

Why Dave, it came from Chrysler itself, in its presentation to CONGRESS.

What did they call the SRT-8 equivalent of the previous body style?

(after some searching)

... the 5.9 Limited!!! I loved that thing!
