Chrysler 300C Staten Island NY

In person, the 300C is a bona fide eye-catcher. It's stately and mature, and yet powerful and compact-looking considering its generous overall length of 196.8 in., on a 120.0-in. wheelbase.

"Change is good." It was Andre Agassi's mantra when he lost the shoulder-length hair and headband for the Bruce Willis look, and it could be Chrysler's with the new V-6-powered 300 and our test car, the 300C, which resurrects the Hemi label for its V-8 powerplant after a half-century of absence. It's the third car, after the Crossfire and Pacifica, to bear the fruits of the Mercedes-Benz/Chrysler merger, and it's radically different from the François Castaing-era LH cars it replaces — to scratch the surface, this new LX platform is rear drive, and let's just say the cab-forward look is squarely in the rearview mirror.

In person, the 300C is a bona fide eye-catcher. It's stately and mature, and yet powerful and compact-looking considering its generous overall length of 196.8 in., on a 120.0-in. wheelbase. Its proportions suggest that the rear wheels are providing the motive force, with a long hood, a nipped tail and bold wheel wells showing off the 18-in. rolling stock. In profile, two things are immediately obvious: The 300C is very high-waisted, with a chopped greenhouse reminiscent of a 1950s' custom; and the windshield angle, in a total reversal of the LH cars, is relatively upright. Moving around to the front, there's a face you'll never forget and can't ignore. Inspired by Chrysler's 1998 Chronos show car, the 300C's dramatic, imposing grille and bejeweled headlight clusters project a certain confidence...and disdain for more meekly styled cars, perhaps? In my humble opinion, it's a very successful look, alluding to Chrysler's famed Letter Cars of the 1950s and 1960s without crossing over and becoming a caricature of them.

Even though some people might describe the Magnum as a "station wagon," that term doesn't come up in any of the Dodge literature, and for good reason. The Magnum is described by Dodge's alliterative Craig Love of the Product Team as a car that "offers the right formula of proportion, packaging and performance that sets it apart from the competition."
