Our spy photographers have caught the first full-bodied images of the 2012 Chrysler 300.

While still camouflaged, we can clearly see the model will be instantly recognizable as a 300. Styling highlights include dramatic headlights, a revised grille, sculpted doors, and a rear bumper with an integrated dual exhaust system. Inside, the cabin will be outfitted with a multi-tiered center console, fake wood trim, and higher quality materials.

Engine options are expected to include a 290 hp (216 kW / 294 PS) 3.6-liter Pentastar V6, a 360 hp (268 kW / 365 PS) 5.7-liter HEMI V8, and a 6.4-liter HEMI V8 with up to 525 hp (391 kW / 532 PS). As we have previously reported, Chrysler has promised the Pentastar V6 will be 22% more fuel efficient than today's 3.5-liter V6. This translates into a fuel economy rating of 21 mpg city / 30 mpg highway.

Look for an unveiling during the first half of 2011, with sales starting shortly thereafter.
