Right now Daimler Chrysler has an excellent strategy towards the making of 
Chrysler cars. What they're doing is keeping the platform from out going MB 
models and re-skinning them as Chrysler cars. This way you get a pretty 
solid and well proven platform from day one.

The 300C, Magnum and Charger are all built on the the last generation W210 
Mercedes Benz E Class chassis. The Crossfire is based on the out going SLK 

Making a platform last 14 or so years must save them a fortune in R&D.
