Mopar rolls out a line of alternate grilles, wheels for the Chrysler 300Wed, 18 May 2011
Chrysler 300 owners love the bling, and Chrysler isn't about to let the aftermarket snap up all that accessory cash.
To compete, Chrysler's Mopar parts arm is introducing eight new custom grilles and six new wheel designs for the big sedan. Chrysler designed the grilles as inserts, to fit within the original grille surround.
The custom grille selection includes two made from billet aluminum, a 13-bar and a diamond-pattern grille, both chrome-plated and polished.
Three wire-mesh grilles also are available, made from two-millimeter steel wire and set in a small-hatch diamond pattern. Finish options are Platinum Chrome, Gloss Black and Bright Chrome.
For those who want to keep it subtle, two versions of the production grille will be available in bright chrome or black chrome finishes.
The fourth choice is a traditional heritage-type, egg-grate grille that is reminiscent of the grille on the 1955 Chrysler 300.
Mopar will also offer six new customized wheel packages for the Chrysler 300.
Two different wheels, made of forged aluminum, measure 20 inches wide, have a 10-spoke design and are available finished in Satin Carbon and Gloss Black. A five-spoke design will also be offered.
Owners of all-wheel-drive models can opt for a 19-inch, eight-spoke, cast-aluminum design painted in a Satin Carbon finish.
Two styles of five-spoke, 18-inch Rallye wheels will also be offered, both made of cast aluminum. The highly polished version includes black pockets and a polished lip and machined spokes. Gloss Black finish is also available.
