Possibly some sad news out of Fiat-Chrysler. According to FCA top man Sergio Marchionne, it’s entirely possible the Chrysler 300, also known as the only Chrysler anyone cares about even a little, may be going front-wheel-drive in the near future. Although Marchionne mentioned this in passing at Chrysler’s plant in Ontario, Canada, we cannot yet confirm that the Chrysler 300 successor will be front-wheel drive. As disappointing as the move may be, it’s not surprising – the 300’s rear wheel drive makes it an outlier among its competitors. We may be looking at a time when the all-wheel-drive version is the sexy one, and that’s a little sad.
