Announced a few weeks ago, the 2011 Chrysler 300 has been officially unveiled during the first day of the Detroit Auto Show. Introduced back in 2005, the 300C looked great but after six years some changes needed to be done to dish the outdated appearance and for this reason Chrysler came up the new generation which is simply put, better. The most important changes include the availability of a new powertrain, a superior interior with materials of higher quality, a lowered belt line, LED-encrusted headlamps and sleeker sheet metal.

Speaking of a new engine, Chrysler’s 300 model will be available with the 3.6-liter aluminum V6 Pentastar unit that will produce 292 hp, best in its class. Compared to the previous generations of V6 engines, the Pentastar is 8% more fuel efficient, managing to achieve 18 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway, according to the EPA ratings. This new engine is 63% more powerful than the previous entry-level 2.7-liter and offers 36% more torque. Compared to the V6 3.5-liter, the all-new 3.6-liter offers 16% more muscles and extra 10 lb.-ft of torque.
