2011 Chrysler 300 Review by Kelsey Mays

The redesigned 2011 Chrysler 300 is not as distinctive as its predecessor, and it misses its target in a few areas, but overall it's the best example yet that Chrysler is back on track.

The full-size sedan is appealing in its details — an area where Chrysler products have often come up short. More than simply a step in the right direction for the automaker, the 300 presents a compelling choice for anyone shopping full-size cars or entry-level luxury models.

Trims include the V-6-powered 300 and 300 Limited, as well as the V-8 300C. All-wheel drive is optional on the 300C. Compare them all here, or click here to compare the 2011 300 with the prior-generation model. At a media preview, I drove V-6 and V-8 versions.
