Esquire is not only the first publication out the gate with a "Car of the year" list, they're also the first to fall flat on its face. Hearst's man mag spread the SEO love around, picking some commendable choices — like the Audi A7 as car of the year, and the Cadillac CTS-V Wagon as family car of the year.
The Onion's done a nice send-up of the Chrysler lineup with this article about the Chrysler Reside in-house car. Unfortunately, the photoshoppers there didn't realize the new Chrysler 300 and old Sebring are two different cars.
One cylinder and worlds apart from the line of historical German three liters shown in this 1984 Mercedes Benz commercial, after 27 years the claims of the 300D's contribution to Mercedes Benz's dynasty seem a lot less of a stretch.
Fiat's Lancia arm showed off today the Chrysler-based models coming to Geneva next month. Considering Fiat's controlling stake, it's no surprise the new Europe-only Lancias are rebadged Chryslers. What is surprising: Lancia appears to have done the rebadging in Photoshop.
At the drive of its new-for-2011 300 sedan last week, Chrysler showed off a matte version of the big hauler dubbed the 300 S. What's with the additional letter? Think of it as a mini-Scion for Chrysler.
"If there's one thing we want you to know," said the executives launching the 2011 Chrysler 300 sedan, "it's that this is an all-new vehicle." It's not, but it is better.
Chrysler's 300 redesign isn't revolutionary, but you try and deal with an insurgency every couple years and see if all that visual violence doesn't get old. Chrysler's preserved the 300's unique take on luxurious motoring, without de-chunking the original chunkmobile.
With a heavily revamped 2011 Chrysler 300 coming shortly, here's another blurry shot of the old photo of the supposed new grille on the new "Confidential" Chrysler service contracts price guide. Oh, those dealers! (H/t to Stéphane!) [Facebook via Examiner]
What's funnier, the "IM HIGH" license plate on this "customized" Chrysler 300, or that the car is pacing a Rocawear truck? (Hat tip to Paul!)
Chrysler has taken the art of blowing smoke up consumer asses to a new level at this year's Detroit Auto Show, unveiling enough paint-and sticker-special editions to fill an entire gallery. Nitro Detonator? Really? Let's take a depressing look.
The Maya 300 is an all-electric five door hatch built in Mississauga, Ontario with either a 60- or 120-mile range and a top speed of 30 MPH. The interesting part is it's packing ExxonMobil technology.
As you may have noticed when we told you about the North American debut of the Alfa Romeo Bertone B.A.T. 11, we started off the day yesterday at the 2008 Meadow Brook Concours D'Elegance press breakfast. Actually, it was more of a press "stand-around-and-sweat". August 3rd will mark the 30th Concours held on the…
Remember the '62 New Yorker we saw nearly a year ago? We all liked its evil-beater look, but these cars looked pretty good when nice and shiny, too. It was quite a find when I spotted this '62 in the island's East End, parked in the exact spot in which the 1971 Chevy Blazer normally parks. I see the Chrysler parked…
Patrons at a Bellingham, Washington Starbucks got quite the surprise yesterday when a 2008 Chrysler 300 driven by an elderly man crashed through the floor to ceiling window and across the shop. Five people were injured in the incident, though none seriously, and the driver is facing a charge of second degree negligent…
Sweet quarts of Pennzoil, why must every automaker jump on bandwagons they have no business being on?
