Model Highlights

The Chrysler 300 is offered in seven different models with four different engines underhood for 2009. The base LX comes with a 178-hp 2.7L V6 engine, while Touring and Limited models get a 250-hp 3.5L V6. The top-of-the-range 300C comes with a 5.7L Hemi V8 making 340 hp and 390 ft-lb of torque, while the exclusive 300C SRT8 comes with a 425-hp, 6.1L version of the Hemi. Walter P. Chrysler Executive models are offered in both Touring and Hemi trim and add six inches in overall length.

All V6 models come with a 4-speed automatic transmission while the V8s are mated with a 5-speed automatic. An all-wheel drive system is available on Touring, Limited, and 300C models and features a new active transfer case with front axle disconnect that adjusts how much power is delivered to the front wheels depending on driving conditions.

Both the 5.7L and 6.1L Hemi V8s feature Chrysler's Multi-Displacement System (MDS), which turns off four of the cylinders when cruising or coasting, so as to improve fuel economy by as much as 20 percent.

The base LX model comes with a rather short equipment list relative to most other mid-size and large sedans. Anti-lock brakes and electronic stability control are optional, but standard on the other models.

The 300 includes an extensive list of available entertainment technology. Sirius satellite TV is offered on the 300, as is Sirius satellite radio, and the available DVD navigation system features a 6.5-inch screen. Then there's MyGig, an entertainment system that includes a 20-gigabyte hard drive for storing music and pictures, a built-in Gracenote music database and voice-memo recorder, and a UConnect Bluetooth hands-free phone interface.

Other options featured as part of packages include a sunroof, a 276-watt Boston Acoustics sound system with six speakers, California Walnut wood trim, remote start, LED interior illumination, SmartBeam headlamps and rain-sensing wipers. A Heritage Group Package is available on the 300C and brings a 368-watt sound system, luxury leather seating with heated rear seats and poplar burl interior accents.

And for the truly power-hungry, there is the exclusive SRT8 model, which includes a 425-hp 6.1L version of the Hemi V8, a specially calibrated AutoStick 5-speed automatic, a lowered sport suspension and performance-tuned ESP stability control. Big 20-inch wheels, a functional hood scoop for added cooling, Brembo vented brakes, and larger dual chromed exhaust tips are also included. Inside, the SRT8 includes performance suede seat inserts, LED interior lighting and an electronic vehicle information center.


Model News

Following some significant updates both inside and out in 2008, the Chrysler 300 sedan sees only limited changes for 2009. Chief among them is a new, advanced all-wheel-drive system. Rather than the previous fixed 38/62 power split from front to rear, the new system features an active transfer case with front axle disconnect that adjusts how much power is delivered to the front wheels.

The 5.7L Hemi V8 in 300C models now delivers more horsepower and torque, as well as increased fuel efficiency, thanks in part to improved Multi-Displacement System (MDS) and variable valve timing (VVT).

All 300s get increased standard equipment -- adaptive cruise control is available, and Limited and 300C models have a more refined suspension for a softer ride. A Walter P. Chrysler Executive option is available on Touring and Hemi models, which adds six inches of length to the 300.


Value Writeup

The 2009 Chrysler 300 and 300C models are good people-haulers, with a smooth ride, comfortable interior and lots of trunk space. The V8 models are surprisingly fuel-efficient due to the included Multi-Displacement System (MDS), which can temporarily shut down half of the engine's cylinders when they're not needed.

Also, the high-performance SRT8 model is in another league altogether, with acceleration and braking that are competitive with some of the top sport sedans from BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Audi.

Consequence
These vehicles are equipped with certain air bag inflators assembled as part of the passenger frontal air bag modules, and used as original equipment or replacement equipment. These inflators may rupture due to propellant degradation occurring after long-term exposure to absolute humidity and temperature cycling. An inflator rupture may result in metal fragments striking the vehicle occupants resulting in serious injury or death.

Chrysler will notify the Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and RAM owners. Mitsubishi owners will be notified by their company. Dealers will replace the passenger frontal air bag inflator, free of charge. Chrysler mailed interim notices to owners on July 7, 2016. Owners will receive a second notice when remedy parts become available. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
