Spy Shot: Chrysler 300C testing in China
Published on January 2, 2012 by Tycho de Feijter
The very first spy shot of the Chrysler 300C sedan in China. It will be listed on the Chinese car market in May next year, the China-bound 300C will debut at the Beijing Auto Show in April. Sole engine for the Chinese market will be the 3.6 V6 with 290hp mated to an 8-speed automatic gearbox.
The old 300C was made in China up until 2007 (pic) by the Beijing-Daimler-Chrysler joint venture which died soon after Daimler-Chrysler died. Chrysler doesn’t have a new partner in China yet so the 300C will be imported and therefore very expensive. Chrysler might be made in China again when the new Guangzhou-Fiat joint venture comes up to steam. That however will at least take another two years.
