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.
Chrysler's 300 for 2015 is a throwback to big, rear-wheel-drive sedans of yore, yet it is sophisticated enough to be relevant today. Updated for 2015 with fresh exterior styling, upgraded technology and advanced safety features, the Chrysler 300 is a tempting choice for buyers seeking a roomy and powerful sedan at a good value. The 300's standard rear-wheel-drive (RWD) layout sets it apart from full-size sedan rivals such as the Ford Taurus, Chevy Impala, Toyota Avalon and Hyundai Azera, while available all-wheel drive (AWD) and a Hemi V8 engine offer added appeal. A new Sport mode enables livelier handling, but in general the 300 puts comfort over performance. Starting just over $32,000, the 2015 Chrysler 300 brings a lot of car for the money.
