Old-School Luxury in the Modern Chrysler 300

Chrysler knew there were many out there who longed for the days of large, luxury sedans that used to dominate the American auto industry, and they've fulfilled those wishes with the Chrysler 300. Offering straightforward, muscular styling, a luxuriously quiet ride, and powerful engine options, the Chrysler 300 is in a league of its own in the American market.

The Chrysler 300's engine options start off with a 3.6l V6 that produces 292 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque on the base Touring trim level. Stepping up to the 300S raises the horsepower of that engine to an even 300 hp. However, optional on the 300S and standard on the 300C is a 5.7-liter V8 at 363 horsepower and 394 lb-ft of torque. While the V8 can only be had with RWD, which is standard across the range, the Chrysler 300 can also be had with AWD.

Few luxury sedans out on the market today can match the powerful engine options of the Chrysler 300, and even fewer come standard with RWD. And with a starting price less than half that of many European luxury sedans, the Chrysler 300 gives Iowa buyers the chance to own true luxury for a fraction of the cost of many competitors.

The Chrysler 300's True Luxury Features

The base Touring trim of the Chrysler 300 comes well-equipped, with features including heated mirrors, auto-dimming rearview mirror, rearview camera, keyless entry & ignition, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather-wrapped steering wheel, power driver's seat, and an 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay & Android Auto, and a six-speaker sound system.

The 300 gets more luxurious as you move up to the 300S, which adds sport-tuned suspension, heated front seats, power passenger seat, leather interior, LED foglights, remote start and paddle shifters. Meanwhile, the 300 Limited adds ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, heated steering wheel, and driver-seat memory.

The top-of-the-range Chrysler 300C not only comes standard with the 5.7l V8, but also adds 20-inch wheels, adaptive xenon headlights, heated and cooled cupholders, upgraded leather upholstery and upgraded steering wheel. But that's not all the luxury the Chrysler 300 has to offer.

There are two separate premium sound systems available, as well as a panoramic sunroof and advanced driver aides. These all add to the Chrysler 300's luxurious suspension, quiet ride, and powerful driving dynamics.
