From Bad-ass to Boring

What had previously been one of the most devilish designs in autodom has now been completely sanitized and defanged. The new Chrysler 300 reminds my of one of those insurance company magazine ad where they throw together an "anycar" on Photoshop. Have a look for yourself.

The rear even looks like one of those awful hack jobs Kia used to do, like the old Amanti.
Chrysler's got some fine looking stuff coming out, like the new Charger and Grand Cherokee. This 300, though, is not what I'd hoped for.
