    I still think a diesel would be nice in this car for the huge amounts of torque produced by those engines coupled with outstanding economy. Also why would anyone be surprised with a V6 0-60 time of under 6 seconds when that motor is almost 300 h.p.? Finally, no one should buy RWD if his primary concern is poor weather traction, that is why they offer an AWD option on the 300. FWD may be better in snow than RWD, but RWD will most often handle better in good weather.

    I have both front and rear wheel drive cars, including a 2009 300c Heritage edition. I love this car and believe this car needs to be always rear wheel drive. I'm intersted in the 2011 hopefully they will offer something simular to the Heritage.

    I own a Chrysler 300 Touring, which I love except for the rear wheel drive. The stability package I like but the rear drive does not compare to the front wheel drive. I live in the mountains and the rear wheel drive just doesn't cut it here. When the roads are bad I use my old 98 Stratus. It will climb a tree with that front wheel drive. Looks like the 2011 will continue with the rear wheel drive.

    Surely this is a mis-statement that the V6 engine will propel this car 0-60 in less than 6 seconds. A clarification should be issued to say whether this is indeed claimed, or that time belongs with the hemi V8.

    The Lancia version will probably come with a Diesel from Motori (the tractor manufacturer) eventually :-)
    It's a neat-looking and optioned vehicle but as always, Chrysler comes with this stuff a few years too late... 8K discounts here we come.

    So few people would be interested in a diesel that it would not be worth the investment. Anyone of the two Chrysler engines will get you 200,000 miles, excellent performance and very good economy, what's the point? I'm so sick of this diesel discussion already, lets move on euro wanna be crowd,PLEASE!.
    Now it's time to get folks out of their BMWs etc and into this beauty.

    That diesel engine is also very expensive, so hardly anyone could afford it in this price segment. You might as well get the E class.

    Instead of Chrysler fighting with Damiler, they should have retained the existing agreement that was to supply the 3.0 CDI engine. This engine would have been a great option for either the 300 or Jeep Grand Cherokee to give them either best or near best in class fuel economy.
