For better aerodynamics and visibility, the windshield has been raked back 3 inches, while rolled-framed doors with thinner pillars improve outward visibility by 15%. A new dual-pane panoramic sunroof lets in more daylight; the 300 also has chrome daylight openings, chrome front and rear fascia accents, and optional 20-inch polished-aluminum wheels. The Lancia Thema version is extremely similar, but has a slightly different grille and interior. The next 300 will reportedly receive serious cosmetic upgrades to the front and rear fascia in addition to a far more luxurious and attractive interior.
The rear-drive sedan will also receive Chrysler's new Pentastar V6, which promises 280 or more horsepower and fuel savings of up to 20 percent versus the current vehicle. .
