Aside from the AWD system they are promoting, the Glacier has some nice touches too...
- Unique body-color fascia accents
- Black chrome sculpted horizontal grille blades
- Unique 19-inch, eight-spoke aluminum wheels finished in Satin Carbon with P235/55R19 all-season performance tires
- 12-way power driver and passenger sport seats with leather-wrapped bolsters in black, finished with black French-seamed stitching and with black seat centers featuring black “Falls” cloth
- Exclusive use of Piano Black on interior center stack, instrument panel, steering wheel, gauge cluster and door panel elements
- Matte carbon hydrographic accents and black floor mats with black velour binding and “Glacier” logo embroidered
I'm honestly not impressed. Does Chrysler really think ridiculous phrases like "ice-cold design" and "icy-cool demeanor" are going to get me to buy one of these?
Aside from aesthetics and a more aggressive air intake, there is nothing remarkable about this car. AWD, 19 inch tires, black chrome...so what? I'm going to pay a premium for that?
Here's an idea: how about a real tune for the 3.6 to take advantage of the additional air flow? Maybe a more free flowing exhaust? I already dropped a new intake my 300S. If that's all you are going to do in a Glacier Edition, you aren't doing much.
