As automakers go, developing well received models is a chore all on its own. When a model becomes a hit, as has the Chrysler 300C, the result is favorable press coverage, high customer satisfaction ratings, and a “halo” effect that will extend to the entire product line. Chrysler’s 300C is a success, but the German-American automaker isn’t stopping there. A stretched version of the car is being developed, one that could find a following among fans, but only if the price is right.

So, why would DaimlerChrysler authorize a stretched version of the 300C? For many reasons including:

The Limousine Market – Although the 300C isn’t on the same level as the Lincoln Town Car or Cadillac DTS, the automobile does battle with the Ford Crown Victoria. Thus , taxi and limousine operators will be drawn to the stretched 300C as the car gives its passengers the room that they need.

The Pursuit Market – The Ford Crown Victoria is the most popular police pursuit auto followed by the Chevy Impala. Chrysler way back conceded this market when they give up building larger rear wheel drive vehicles. The stretched 300C could fit in nicely and give the automaker some further sales to lift market share. Look for a likewise stretched Dodge Charger to also be built once 300C demand has been proven.

The Luxury Market – No, the 300C isn’t a luxury car, but a model coming down the pike 3-4 years from now will be. Yes, the Chrysler Imperial will be returning and it, too, will be a stretched version of the 300C, but even longer and bigger than the stretched version of the 300C. Do not believe for a moment that DaimlerChrysler may not be measuring requirement for its new 300C to of the record, there are a couple of things that we know about the bigger 300C : the vehicle will be stretched only by 6 inches and all those gains will show up in the rear passenger area. In addition, think we know about the stretched 300C, instead an exterior provider will handle the job of taking existing inches and redoing them.

Prices for the bigger 300C haven’t been finished yet, but they may carry a premium of as much as $5000 over the shorter model. This is a concern, as the price could be more than what some livery drivers could explain. Maybe DaimlerChrysler will eat some of the expenses and hold the price down to a $1000 premium. If 00 over the shorter model. This is a rude awakening and find requirement for the stretched 300C to be luke warm at best.
