Well I was just browsing the 300 site and saw that they have updated the webpage with all the awards. I am not sure when they did it, but last time I checked it wasn't updated with so many listings.

2005 North American Car of the Year

2005 AUTOMOBILE Magazine Automobile of the Year

America's Best Sedan: 300C
Wouldn't you know the new kid on the block would make a splash, wrestling the title of America's Best Sedan from BMW? This might prove the adage, you don't have to appeal to all the people, just to the right ones.

Editors' Most Wanted Vehicle for 2005: Chrysler 300
The all-new 2005 Chrysler 300 celebrates the vibrant luxury sedans of yesteryear while introducing a new standard for high-performance, contemporary sedans. In fact, found its unique combination of contemporary styling and powerful performance delivered by its available 340-horsepower 5.7-liter V8 HEMI® engine with industry-leading Multi-Displacement System (MDS) so inspiring that it has given the Chrysler 300 the "most significant New Vehicle for 2005" award-a most significant feat indeed.'s Top 10 Hippest
It's got all the stately glamour of a Bentley at a fraction of the price. More than just a family sedan, the 300 is a bona fide starlet, with glossy rap-video cameos to prove it. Old-world charm plus an available 340-horse HEMI® under the hood make the 300 a must-have for many in-the-know car lovers.

Five-Star Frontal Crash Test
Chrysler 300 received five stars, the highest government frontal crash test rating.* Performance, luxury, and styling are only part of the story-superior safety also comes standard on every Chrysler 300.

In addition, the Chrysler 300C has won the following awards:

All I can say is that its unbelievable. I don't know any other car in my lifetime that has recieved such critical praise (i'm only 18).
