Over the last couple of years, Chrysler has defied conventional wisdom and seemingly informed opinion by reviving its product line despite scarce resources.
The re-launch of its SRT performance line, marked by the debut of four revamped muscle cars represents the next step in creating an air of excitement around the company’s product line. And our first experience with the Chrysler 300 SRT8 certainly leaves an excellent impression both curbside and out on the highway. (Click Here for more on the SRT story.)
For starters, Chrysler designers have tweaked the car’s exterior and the changes have enhanced what was already a strong and popular design. The 2012 Chrysler 300 SRT8 sits a half inch lower than non-SRT models – which only just went through their first complete redesign in seven years. With such touches as new side sill cladding, the SRT8 edition gets a more aggressive and sporty appearance that’s accented by seven-spoke, 20-inch aluminum wheels.
