Scheduled to debut a full month away at the Detroit Auto Show, the folks at Chrysler were obviously too proud of their redesigned flagship sedan to wait. We’ve already been teased with several close-ups of the redesigned Chrysler 300, but now we have the full vehicle to show you.

Looking more polished, but just as luxurious as when it first popped onto the scene half a decade ago, the 300 also gets a significant interior redesign much like the 2011 Dodge Charger with an optional 8.4-inch infotainment screen. Other optional goodies include heated and coolest seats, a dual-pane sunroof, and even a nice set of 20-inch wheels. Chrysler also promises improved luxury through significantly decreased sound deadening.

As for power, like the Charger, the 300 gets the new Pantastar V6 as standard with 292-hp and 260 ft-lbs of torque. A Hemi V8 is optional with 5.7-liters of displacement and Chrysler’s new Fuel Saver Technology that shuts down cylinders when not in need to conserve fuel. Output is rated at 360-hp and 390 ft-lbs of torque.

Be sure to check back for full details and live photos with Detroit Auto Show coverage starting January 10th.

Quite honestly I think what they are doing is taking the Chrysler division into a more up scale to seperate it from Dodge more. I don't think it is meant to be cross shopped with a Dodge anymore. THIS 300 is geared to a different group of people. I need to see one in person before I say I like it or don't because right now I don't know.

That is exactly what they are doing. Expect to see the same strategy applied to the minivans and midsize sedans.

I agree. I think Chrysler is even not going to use the Hemi name for their 5.7 engines. Leaving the Hemi name for Dodge which will have more sporty, muscular, racing designs. Chrysler designs will be more luxury designs.
