The 2023 Chrysler 300C has started to reach customers, signaling the end of a chapter for the legendary Detroit automaker. With the 300C likely being the final HEMI-powered sedan, it also represents the end of the line for any new internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicle from the brand. While the Pacifica will continue in its current form for a few more years, the 300C is the last new ICE-powered model as Chrysler pivots towards an all-electric lineup by 2028.
Although Chrysler has unveiled its Airflow Concept, a five-passenger crossover built on the new STLA Large platform, the company has not released any official information regarding upcoming products. However, according to our sources, Airflow is expected to join the Chrysler lineup in late 2024 as a 2025 model. It will be manufactured at the Stellantis Windsor Assembly Plant in Windsor, Ontario, alongside the new Dodge Charger Daytona. Upon its release, the Airflow will directly compete with electric vehicles such as the Chevrolet Blazer EV and Ford Mustang Mach-E.
At its recent dealer meeting in Las Vegas, Stellantis presented a preview of its upcoming products to its dealers in a secure, electronics-free environment. Among the products showcased was a new electric sedan from Chrysler.
According to several dealer sources, the upcoming Chrysler electric sedan resembles the images teased during Stellantis’ EV Day 2021 presentation. The presentation featured silhouettes of a sleek, fastback coupe-like sedan with Chrysler logos on the wheels.
Attendees have reported that the upcoming Chrysler electric sedan shares a similar size and hatchback design as the upcoming Charger Daytona BEV. While specifics about the vehicle were limited, those present noted that the sedan’s layout is reminiscent of the new Charger.
In January 2022, Chrysler CEO Christine Feuell stated in an interview with Automotive News that the automaker would be introducing a new, completely redesigned vehicle to replace the 300. While it remains unclear if this new sedan is the successor to the 300, Chrysler may continue offering a full-size sedan in its lineup to compete with rivals such as the Tesla Model S, BMW i7, and Mercedes EQS.
If this new vehicle comes to market, it would indicate that the Dodge Charger will again have a Chrysler counterpart. We sure hope so.
