Chrysler 300C wagon now decommissioned

Chrysler 300C wagon now decommissioned

October 25th, 2011



Some said it looks like a hearse others said it was the ugliest thing they’ve seen since Paul Holmes went on Dancing with the Stars – it’s the Chrysler 300C wagon. Although it wasn’t suitable for all tastes it did gain a following and there will be some that are sad to hear that a wagon variant won’t be offered with the new 300C model.

Chrysler-Lancia CEO Saad Chebab said in a recent interview that the 300C wagon’s sales in the States weren’t enough to justify the development costs of a five-door version of the platform. Apparently the 300C Touring had proved more popular in the U.K and Europe than it did in the States.

With Fiat having a huge input in post-bankruptcy Chrysler it is making the calls and the 300C wagon isn’t a priority at the moment. Money that would have been spent on the large wagon can now be used for more important things like girly retro-styled hatchbacks.

Dodge Magnum in the states, Chrysler 300 in Europe. I once saw a 300 wagon here in Ft Wayne, and thought someone customized a Magnum. At the time, I didn't realize it was the export version!
