Now the reason I used the boat reference is because any sailor would be first to tell you that a sailing vessel isn't exactly easy to maneuver.

They're not what you would call the most agile vehicles. Long story short, boats take a while to turn around.

Much like Chrysler will.

However, with all-new products like the Jeep Grand Cherokee, Dodge Dart, SRT Viper -- which got A LOT of love at the 2012 New York Auto Show -- it seems that this Detroit automaker is on the path to producing competitive products. That's assuming it continues to up its game over time.

Though I have yet to drive the all-new Mercedes-Benz M-Class, I am 75 percent sure I wouldn't want one. That's because the V6 Jeep Grand Cherokee equipped with the air suspension is a properly good sport-utility vehicle.

But with the good comes the bad. Take, for example, the Chrysler 200 that's really just a warmed over Sebring -- you know, the car that just about everyone despises.

Switching gears a bit, this brings us to our subject. A design student -- Christian Bonathan -- recently mocked up a revised Chrysler 200 that would replace that godforsaken product that currently exists. 

And you know what? I think it looks pretty damn good. Certainly looks more compelling than midsize cars like the Honda Accord, Toyota Camry, current-gen Ford Fusion -- sorry the next-gen product looks awesome with that Aston Martin-inspired face -- etc., etc.

That being said though, would YOU give it a chance or simply dismiss it as more of the same with a different wrapper?
