Pros

Athletic V8 engines; roomy interior; comfortable ride; stretched executive model; available all-wheel drive; serious track-ready performance from SRT8


Model Highlights

The Chrysler 300 family comes in two nomenclatures, 300 and 300C. Models with either of the V6 engines are termed Chrysler 300, while models with either of the V8s are termed Chrysler 300C.

With two different powertrains each, the Chrysler 300 and 300C spans a wide range from an affordable, spacious and somewhat fuel-efficient sedan to a serious 4-door muscle-car or even a track-ready package. The base powertrain on the Chrysler 300 Touring is a 2.7-liter V6, making 178 horsepower. The Touring Signature and Executive models, along with the 300 Limited, add a 250-hp, 3.5-liter V6. Then the 300C steps up to a 360-hp, 5.7-liter 'Hemi' V8; and at the top of the range the performance-oriented 200C SRT8 gets a 425-hp, 6.1-liter V8. V6 engines are mated with a 4-speed automatic, while the V8s get a 5-speed automatic; in both cases they have AutoStick manual control.

Available on 300 Touring, Touring Signature, Limited, and 300C models is an all-wheel drive system that combines an active transfer case for seamless response when traction is needed and front-axle disconnect to help improve fuel economy when grip is sure.

In any of its variants, the 300 is a spacious sedan with a comfortable ride, supportive seating and a back seat with enough headroom and legroom for adults. Trunk space is cavernous, and the interior is very well isolated from road and wind noise. An available Executive model adds about six inches of wheelbase, with most of it going straight to back-seat space.

Aside from the SRT8, the 300C Heritage Edition is at the top of the lineup, bringing a host of luxury features such as leather seating with suede inserts, Poplar Burl wood trim, 20-inch chromed wheels, a Boston Acoustics surround-sound audio system, and performance upgrades for the steering and suspension.

In addition to traditional luxury features, the 300C offers several high-tech entertainment and communications options that make the sedan's cabin a more pleasant or more entertaining place. Highlights include the UConnect Phone (Bluetooth-based) system that allows hands-free calling; UConnect Multimedia, which includes a 30-gigabyte hard-drive for music storage; and UConnect Navigation, which includes real-time traffic updates. There's also an available rear-seat video entertainment system.

With a distinct, edgier character than the rest of the 300 lineup, the 300C SRT8 brings race-inspired styling cues and track-worthy performance hardware, including a specially tuned lowered suspension, big Brembo brakes and aerodynamic improvements. All said, with the big 425-hp engine, the SRT8 can accelerate to 60 mph in about five seconds and get from a standstill to 100 mph and back to zero in less than 17 seconds.

Safety equipment is now well represented throughout the 300 and 300C lineup, with electronic stability control, anti-lock brakes and brake assist, plus front side airbags and side-curtain bags, standard across all trims.


Model News

The Chrysler 300 and 300C lineup has only a few feature changes for 2010. V8-powered 300C models get increased standard equipment; ParkSense rear parking assist, plus keyless entry and Keyless Go are now standard on all 300C models, while heated chromed mirrors, chromed exterior door handles and chromed rear-fascia accents are all standard on the 300C Touring. Supplemental side-curtain airbags, which remained optional on the base 300 last year, are now standard on all Chrysler 300 and 300C models.


Value Writeup

The 300 is actually very affordable in its base-model form and much more distinctive than other mid-size sedans. It can be optioned with a host of cool entertainment and information features that aren't offered on mainstream sedans as well. In stretched Executive form, the 300C is luxurious enough for limousine duty, while other 300C models don't skimp on traditional luxury either. The 300C's styling hasn't changed significantly in several years now and yet it's still a head-turner. Finally, the 300C SRT8 is well worth considering for those who want a weekend track toy that they can drive on the commute every day--in comfort.

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).
