Chrysler will launch a trio of profile-raisers as part of its Spring Collection, all due at dealers later in the first quarter. Performance-oriented S6 and S8 versions of the flagship 300 sedan match their respective V6 and Hemi V8 power with a host of functional upgrades and feature enhancements while the PT Cruiser Couture Edition makes its points with pure cosmetic changes. The Town & Country Walter P. Chrysler Signature Series package gives Chrysler's seminal minivan a shot of style and a maximum boost in its creature-coddling capability.

2010 Detroit Auto Show: Chrysler Recasts 300, T & C and PT Cruiser

2010 Chrysler 300 S6/S8

Both the 260-horsepower S6 and 360-horse Hemi-powered S8 swap their chrome grilles for blackout alternatives with brightwork surrounds and body-color fascia inserts complemented by darkened headlamp bezels, color-matched mirrors, chrome accents and 20-inch polished alloy wheels. To appropriately underpin that bolder look, they also add a sport-tuned suspension, upgraded brakes and all-season performance tires. Interior highlights include unique leather/suede sport seats, custom trims, and the primo 13-speaker/322-watt Kicker audio system with Uconnect Phone, iPod Control and SIRIUS Satellite Radio.

2010 Chrysler PT Cruiser Couture Edition

The 2010 Couture Edition adds distinctive cosmetics to the PT Cruiser, starting with a two-tone exterior treatment that pairs Brilliant Black Crystal Pearl over Bright Silver Metallic accented with red pinstripes. Other exterior goodies include 16-inch polished aluminum wheels, a polished grille, and various chrome trim bits. Interior enhancements for the $19,995 Couture Edition Cruiser are highlighted by Pastel Slate Gray base trim, Satin Silver instrument panel/console garnish, and all-new Radar Red or Dark Slate Gray leather seats.

2010 Chrysler Town & Country Walter P. Chrysler Signature Series

Available in exclusive Deep Cherry Red Pearl Coat paint, wearing special seven-spoke 17-inch alloy wheels with a platinum chrome finish and boasting lots of exterior brightwork, the Walther P. Chrysler Signature Series stands apart from its normal T&C kin. Inside, the upline trim brings Dark Slate Gray and Light Shale leather, Macassar Range wood and special satin-finish trims. Other upgrades in this seven-passenger maxed-out minivan include heated first and second row seats, the upline Media Center 430 radio with 30-gigabyte hard drive and a nine-inch dual-screen front/rear DVD entertainment system. SIRIUS Backseat TV and Media Center 370N with Navigation also are available, as is the 4.0-liter V6 in place of its standard 3.8-liter engine.
