They did something similar on Overhaulin', Magnum/300 took the front clip from a 300 and put it on the Magnum, I'm pretty sure that they mentioned that in Europe the Magnums have the 300 front?

Edit: sorry you'll have to scroll, haven't figured out the image upload yet.

It's sold in Europe as the 300 Touring.

I love the looks of the Magnum. I like driving them even better (especially the Hemi).

What I find surprising is how peppy the 3.5 is in such a heavy vehicle. Must be the rwd and the tranny.

I would love to get a Magnum when I get back to the States. I'm in Germany now and you see the 300M Wagon every now and then. I still like the Magnum more. It looks a lot more powerful. If anyone wants to trade their Hemi Magnum for my 2000 Trep 2.7L PM me. I would like the AWD since I'm going to be living in Wisconsin. Has anyone here driven the AWD Hemi Magnum??? If so how is it?

given the 302 is a 5ltr and the 351 is 5.8ltr, i would say the 289 is around 4.6ltrs

they probably wont bring it to the states, ive seen it in a news letter my dad gets from work (he works for chrysler). its uh...nothing special. infact i dont like the idea of it at all. station wagons are not very strong sellers in the states as far as i know, the magnum sells because of its sharp features. im pretty sure its only a euro sell.

The Magnum is sooooo nice. The same for the charger. I'm tempted to trade in my intrepid for either a magnum or a charger. I think I may swing by the dodge dealership to get a closer look.

id take the charger...but if you are looking for the cheaper of the two, magnums a few grand lower. i would highly advise that you wait for the challenger to reach the dealerships...the magnum and charger will be nothing compared to it.

But in Europe they are available with a V6 diesel - 4 cylinder milages with hemi torque. Plus I think it looks better with the 300 front. I would buy one in a minute. I wonder what it costs to get one brought over?
