Value Writeup

The 300 presents a luxury big-car design and style at an affordable price. The car retains its Audi-like appearance and presence, but features prices starting around $30,000. The lineup of powerful engines and available all-wheel drive mean the 300 also has performance credibility to match its style. Inside, a comprehensive list of standard equipment as well as safety technology means the 300 competes above its class in both features and price.


Pros

Athletic V8 engine option; roomy interior; comfortable ride; luxury-style interior touches; available all-wheel drive


Model Highlights

The Chrysler 300 family comes in Limited, 300S, 300C and 300C Platinum trim. The standard engine is a 3.6L V6, while the optional engine is a 5.7L Hemi V8. Power is delivered to the rear wheels or, optionally, all four.

With the different powertrains available, the Chrysler 300 spans a wide range from an affordable, spacious and powerful sedan to a serious luxury and performance tourer. The base powertrain on the Chrysler 300 is a 3.6L V6 that makes 292 horsepower. The optional 360-horsepower 5.7L Hemi V8 engine is flex-fuel compatible. All models come equipped with an 8-speed automatic transmission. The available all-wheel-drive system 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.

The base 300 Limited model is the definition of affordable luxury. It comes well-equipped with 17-inch alloy wheels, heated power mirrors, a UConnect stereo with an 8.4-inch touch-screen display, an electronically auto-dimming rearview mirror and leather-trimmed seats. The 300's strong safety feature list includes traction control, stability control and brake enhancing Ready Alert and Rainy Day brake support. Front, side and a driver's knee airbags are also standard.

The 300S comes standard with a slightly more powerful version of the 3.6L V6, making 300 horsepower. Power driver and passenger seats, a 522-watt stereo and 20-inch polished aluminum wheels are all standard on the 300S. The 300S, like the 300C, is also available with the bigger 5.7L V8 engine.

The 300C adds exterior chrome trim, standard Garmin navigation, steering wheel mounted paddle shifters, heated rear seats, 18-inch wheels and a ParkView rear back-up camera.

The top of the line 300C Platinum comes with several notable features, including a more comfortable premium suspension setup, 20-inch polished aluminum wheels, quilted leather trimmed seats and luxury floor mats.


Model News

Following a fairly major update for 2015, the Chrysler 300 enters 2016 with only minor updates. The base 300 features an improved suspension, while the 300S now rides on a more performance-oriented suspension. A new 8.4-inch touchscreen interface is more intuitive, particularly as it is paired with Siri Eyes Free voice control. A new 90th Anniversary Edition adds special badging, a dual-pane sunroof, and Uconnect 8.4 with navigation and Traffic and Travel Link.
