Chrysler Grilles 2011 Chrysler 300

STANDING TALL – Constructed of billet aluminum, the 13-bar grill

Hands up those of you who have mistaken a Chrysler 300 for a Bentley Continental? I'll bet many of you, like me, have made the error on occasion. Not surprising really as there is some similarity in stance between the two cars even though one costs almost ten times as much. To further confuse the issue there are several aftermarket companies producing Bentley lookalike grilles for the previous generation Chrysler 300.

Now Mopar, Chrysler Group's service, parts and customer-care brand, is getting in on the act itself with a line of eight different grilles for the new 2011 Chrysler 300. And, no, you cannot get a grille that mimics the grille on the prestigious British car.

"By itself, the Chrysler 300 makes a statement. Our grilles and wheels provide exclamation points. And unlike other aftermarket offerings, our grilles are specifically tested for aero, cooling and thermal, and our wheels are specifically designed and tested for durability and impact." Mopar states in announcing these new products.

The selection includes a 13-bar grille and a diamond-pattern grille, both constructed of billet aluminum. Harkening back to traditional sports cars, the new Mopar grille selection also includes three wire-mesh grilles constructed of 2mm steel wire set in a small-hatch diamond pattern. Mesh grilles will be available in Platinum Chrome, Gloss Black and Bright Chrome finishes.

Another one of the grilles is a traditional, heritage type egg-grate grille reminiscent of the grille on the original 1955 Chrysler 300. All of Mopar's custom grilles are inserts and easily fit within the original grille-surround with no modifications required. One big advantage of purchasing a Mopar grille is that it carries a 3-year 36,000 mile warranty when purchased with the vehicle.

In addition to grilles, Mopar will also offer six new customized wheel packages for the Chrysler 300. Wheels are available in 18-inch, 19-inch and 20-inch diameters and include an array of finishes. Two different wheels measuring 20-inch x 8-inch with a 10-spoke design are constructed of forged aluminum with finishes that include Satin Carbon and painted Gloss Black. A traditional five-spoke design, measuring 20-inch x 8-inch clad in Black Chrome will also be available.
