It seems that Chrysler?s bid for further financial aid may have also revealed the company?s plans for two of its most popular cars: the Chrysler 300C and the Jeep Cherokee.
As part of its long-term viability plan presented to the US government, these renderings were included as a visual look at what Chrysler intends to do with its budget if the government decides to post bail for the troubled carmaker.
According to the slick Powerpoint-like graphics, the Cherokee will gain a 19 percent increase in fuel economy between 2010 and 2012, and will feature a class-beating interior.
The 2010 300C ? apart from being the "most awarded car in automotive history? (Chrysler's words there) ? will receive a full redesign inside and out.
Chrysler says the 300C will offer an all-new fuel-efficient V6 option to go along with a cylinder deactivation-equipped HEMI V8.
The two concepts are nice enough to look at, and if Chrysler can hold true to its plans - and get that funding it desperately needs - the new 300C and Jeep Cherokee would no doubt provide a healthy boost to the manufacturer?s income.
