JSG I know what your saying. Thats why i brought a first gen followed by a second gen lhs because they come fully loaded. I understand what you mean about the stripped down models also. I'd never buy a 300 unless it was a C. I look at the base model as a pathetic dull looking car esp with the hubcaps and 2.7 but thatts just my opinion.

With the Pentastar V-6's to debut there should be plenty of power from those.

If people want a V-6, then thats fine. But this ugly steel wheel, stripped down basic model isn't in-line with what the brand image used to be. Granted, it was pretty tarnished in the 80's, but regained some luster through the 90's. Ever see hubcaps, cloth seats, and black plastic door handles on a 300M or LHS?

Value-oriented models were a Plymouth and Dodge peice.

People who owned a Dodge or Plymouth were to retire to a Chrysler. People buy a Lexus because it's a Lexus, meaning luxury and quality. Not for value. Time to re-establish the 300 series, and the finally come out with the 300 "N" and continue forward with the highly regarded letter series.

Look up the original LH design. It sure didn't come from Chrysler.

This is pure speculation from "experts" that seem to toss out rumors. This even worse than the crap that Autoblog posts with their anti-Chrysler movement.

Chrysler should be building "Luxury" cars, Dodge should be doing "sport" and trucks. Jeep's should be SUV's.

More Chrysler Vehicles Could Follow the Viper To The Automotive Graveyard

From Leftlanenews:

More Chrysler Vehicles Could Follow the Viper To The Automotive Graveyard

By Drew Johnson
Chrysler’s Chapter 11 filing could spell the end for the Dodge Viper nameplate, but a new report indicates that even more Chrysler products could be on the chopping block as a result of the company’s bankruptcy filing.

The Dodge Viper may be making the trek to the automotive graveyard, but it likely won’t be making the journey alone. A number of Chrysler nameplates could be facing the axe, including some of the company’s most popular models.

According to a document obtained by Edmunds, Chrysler is attempting to sell of a number of its product lines. “These lines include Jeep Wrangler, Dodge Viper and Dodge Ram and Dakota truck lines,” the document said.

While it would seem the Wrangler, Ram and Dakota would have no problem finding a new home with another automaker, Robert Manzo of the Capstone Advisory Group says the Wrangler might be hard pressed to find a new owner.

“A potential buyer would face significant additional investment costs in the range of $550 million to $1 billion,” Manzo said of the Jeep Wrangler nameplate in an affidavit. “There are likely other significant costs that a potential buyer would have to incur in order to re-establish the brand. In addition, recent market experience reflected in the efforts to sell Saturn, Opel, Saab and Hummer brands indicates an extremely depressed market for stand-alone automotive brands.”

While it’s hard to imagine Chrysler without such staples as the Viper, Wrangler, Ram and Dakota, it seems as if the company’s Chapter 11 filing really will result in a leaner automaker.
