Narrow year range (drag arrows to filter):
For 2013, the base Chrysler 300 receives standard leather seating, an 8.4-inch voice-controlled touchscreen radio and heated front seats. The 300S gains a 300-horsepower upgrade. A limited-run Glacier Edition includes AWD and unique design appointments, while the SRT8 gets an improved adaptive dampening suspension and standard launch control.
The 2012 Chrysler 300 receives a new 8-speed ZF automatic transmission as well as new S letter series and Luxury Series trim levels. The new transmission is available on the V6 Limited, 300S and AWD models, with the S trim getting a "Sport" shift manual mode. Versions of the Chrysler 300 with the V8 get a new mesh grille, while the "Beats by Dr. Dre" audio system is offered on more models. Model-year 2012 also marks the return of the 300 SRT8, featuring a 6.4-liter Hemi V8, 2-mode adaptive damping suspension and 19-speaker harman/kardon audio system.
All-wheel drive models receive a new Active Transfer Case and Front-axle Disconnect which helps improve fuel economy by disconnecting the front axles and transfer case when not in all-wheel-drive mode. The HEMI V8 sees improvements in horsepower and fuel economy, while the LX trims receive 17-inch machined aluminum wheels and the 300C Heritage gets 20-inch wheels and a new grille.
2008 sees modest but important changes. The cruise control stalk has been relocated to the four o'clock position where it won't be confused with the turn signal, and the dash receives a minor freshening. New options include MyGIG multimedia audio system and remote start
There was a time when the staple of American luxury cars meant a huge 4-door sedan with a big V8 engine and rear-wheel drive (RWD). The 2014 Chrysler 300 is one of the last of that breed, but it's more. It's available with a strong and efficient V6 and all-wheel drive (AWD), and there's also a super-performance choice in the SRT8. And the Chrysler 300 has road manners that are world-class, with a ride quality that matches the upper-end Lexus models and handling that competes with some of the best German sports sedans. Perhaps it's one of the last of an American breed, but the 2014 Chrysler 300 is far, far better than its ancestors ever were.

"I have to say that after nearly two years, I still love my car. It is very spacious as expected of a full size and has a better turning radius than expected. It feels solid and planted on the road. The suspension is comfortable, I would describe it as balanced. Not so soft that it "boats" but still soft enough to absorb some pretty harsh roads. The nav system is by far the easiest to use out of any car I have owned thus far. The vented seats are great but they could stand to be a little softer. I cant hold this against it because I am comparing to much more expensive cars. V8 actually gets great gas mileage. I am averaging 23.2mpg. I dont drive with fuel economy in mind either so I am sure others get better(or worse) 100% reliable so far. I could go on and on about all the features but in the end I like the thick steering wheel, V8 power, and looks. Good job Chrysler, turned around my opinion of your cars. I cant quite give it a 10/10. but for the price compared to others it probably deserves it."

"In one word: Loaded. I will begin by saying I've almost exclusively driven imports (Honda, Nissan, Toyota, Mercedes) for the past 15 years. We wanted a full-size family vehicle with luxury options but not ridiculously expensive. I test drove the 2013 Chrysler 300C along with other competitors in the entry-level luxury class many times before purchasing. I was waiting for the 300C Varvatos Luxury model (which is difficult to find) to be released and immediately loved the car. Cool exterior styling. Great power from the Pentastar V-6, outstanding luxury features like bluetooth, Garmin Navigation, heated/cooled cupholders, voice-command, remote start, heated REAR seats, and dozens of other options that you only expect to find in cars that cost thousands more. Test drive this car and you will NOT be disappointed. Save yourself $15-$20G's. Superb build quality and structural rigidity, as well as interior fit & finish. Soft leather, quiet cabin, comfortable suspension that absorbs potholes and road imperfections even with 20" alloy wheels. On a road trip to Florida it got me 32mpg/hwy! The only con I can think of is because the 8" Nav screen is flush-mounted as opposed to recessed into the dash-hood like other cars, sometimes the glare from the sun (only during early morning & late evening when the sun is low and on your right) makes it somewhat difficult to view the screen, but that's a minor issue and has only happened twice. Not only is the 300C one of the best-built American cars, its one of the best cars on the market from any manufacturer, bar none. Detroit is definitely back. Eminem and Clint Eastwood weren't lying to us during the Super Bowl. Hats off to Chrysler."

"Would be a perfect 10 and much more enjoyable automobile if the tires, wheels and suspension were not so sensitive to road irregularities, and the ride was not so busy on anything but mirror finished roads (asphalt). Sensitive to concrete roadway noise in spite of it's quiet interior, and any small bumps, manhole covers, slight dips in the surface exhibit an annoying bouncing, tiring busy ride, no matter how much the suspension is trying to absorb it, the low profile tires and large wheels with anything above 28 psi tire pressure (30 psi called for on door frame tag) makes the car if not harsh, but jouncy."
