When Chrysler introduced its brand new 300 line in 2005, it met with much success. The 300C was awarded Motor Trend Car of the Year. The vehicle sold extremely well -- nearly 145,000 units in the first year, and 120,000 in the second. Since then, however, sales of the full-size sedan have dropped heavily as other vehicles, including the new Buick Lucerne, the Ford Taurus, and the Ford Fusion, have gained ground in the market. The 2010 version of the 300 posted a record-low 37,116 units sold. According to Edmunds, many of its features, including its four-speed automatic transmission, have become outdated. In response to flagging sales, Chrysler introduced a completely overhauled 2011 edition of the vehicle.
