    Chrysler to Unveil Stretched 300 in N.Y.

    Chrysler Group will use next month’s New York Auto Show to target the livery industry with a stretch version of its Chrysler 300 sedan.

    The ’07 Chrysler 300 long wheelbase will be 6 ins. (15 cm) longer than the base model and feature an additional 10.2 cu.-ft. (0.3 cu.-m) of interior space.

    In addition to the added room, the 300 Long Wheelbase will feature amenities such as lighted writing tables, power ports for laptops and cell phones, and custom paint options.

    “You want your wife’s eyes or something,” says 300 brand manager Mike Perugi, “we will be able to match that color.” Pricing will be announced closer to launch.

    He is equally tightlipped about anticipated volume, but says the New York show should provide an effective springboard for sales. More than 59% of the nation’s livery business is centered in the Northeast, Perugi says.

    Competitor vehicles are the Lincoln Town Car Executive L and Signature L models, the Cadillac DTS and – to a lesser extent – stretched versions of the Audi A8, Jaguar XJ8 and BMW 7-Series.

    The 300 is built on Chrysler’s LX platform, which also shoulders the Dodge Magnum wagon, Dodge Charger sport sedan and the Chrysler Touring edition for the European market.

    if they were to continue the facade of a luxury car, they would put a retractable hardtop on.

    Lack of torque, shitty milage, and bullshit EPA ratings that trump up higher milage then is actually possible. DIesel often surpasses its EPA rating.

    Plus Petrol engines are being used in hybrids, and i think hybrids are fucking ghey, and another worthless piece of technology thanks to the EPAs piss poor milage rating system.

    Diesel provides excelent power, excelent economy, and is a cheaper fuel for operating a vehicle in teh long run. Especially considering i put nearly 450 miles of freeway only miles on my car every week, a diesel would have saved me hundreds by now.
