Chrysler will show us its take on the Mercedes-Benz CLS in January at the Detroit show. See a preview sketch here.
;Chrysler is finally taking the hint. The big, in-your-face, American-in-a-German-way 300C was the biggest hit the brand has had in years. Why not use the same formula again? Start with a luxurious German sedan, cut a few costs here and there, add a dash of American badassness, let it simmer, and you have a heavy helping of success. This time, Chrysler has started with the sleek Mercedes-Benz; four-door coupe, and the result is the you see here. From these sketches the car looks great, and Chrysler promises and emphasis on driving dynamics. Check back in January for pictures of this American beauty live from the Detroit show.
