About Chrysler 300

Loaded with advanced technology and safety features, the full-size 2017 Chrysler 300 is an elegant American luxury-performance sedan with plenty of swagger and big horsepower. With its standard rear-wheel drive (RWD), available all-wheel drive (AWD) and optional Hemi V8, the Chrysler 300 is unique in a sea of front-wheel-drive V6-powered competitors like the Toyota Avalon and Chevy Impala. Four trim levels are available for 2017; the base 300 Limited, 300S, 300C and 300C Platinum. All four come standard with a highly praised 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 that makes a strong 292 horsepower. In 300S models it makes slightly more -- 300 horsepower. A 363-horsepower 5.7-liter Hemi V8 is available on the three higher trim levels. Both engines are connected to an 8-speed automatic transmission.

Chrysler 300

"I feel this is an honest and fair review. I have a wealth of experience with cars owning more than 75 cars since the 1980's. I have had everything from 71 Buick Skylark, Renault LeCar, Thunderbird, LX Mustang 5.0, Suburbans, Jeeps, and this Chrysler 300 is is an absolutely incredible car. This car is so comfortable and quiet, responsive, yet plush. The MPG is mind boggling with the near 300 horsepower from the Pentastar 3.6 (which is an amazing motor). I have the limited (now the entry level) but, do not be discouraged by an entry level 300, this vehicle is anything but "entry". I have driven Cadillac, Lexus, Lincoln, Infinity, Buick, Oldsmobile, Pontiac, and I am not ashamed to say those all had a fantastic ride quality, but this is a $32,000 car that rides like a $60,000 high end vehicle. The cabin is laid out perfectly, the back seat and trunk are enormous. This is simply an amazing car. Flagship of Chrysler to say the least."

"I have over 28K miles on my '15 300S, since March '15. I trade new vehicles every 1.5 to 2 yrs for my job. Owned many new Toyota's, MB, Honda's, Mitsubishi's and some Chrysler products. This is the best by far. Traded my '13 Durango in for this. Hard to believe the same 3.6 motor in this, the new 8-sp ZF transmission is extremely smooth and sophisticated. The car accelerates like a much lighter car, mine with AWD weighs in more that most SUV's on the road, minus full size class. The car handles like a car much smaller than it is, yet gives the road confidence of a true full size car. This 300 and Dodge Charger came about from the marriage of Daimler/Mercedes-Benz and Chrysler shared technologies. This E-Class platform they inherited is more refined than Chrysler could have ever come up with. The AWD is a must in IA and is grippy when you need it. It functions in RWD until 37 degrees, wipers activated for rain or pushing the sport mode switch on the dash, otherwise it has great RWD traction, for better fuel economy and is a blast to drive. High quality appointments on the interior (good leather, real aluminum dash details, no cheap plastic, soft touch materials everywhere)make you feel like you spent more. The U connect is the best screen operated car interactive system out. Beats audio sound is superb. Paddle-shifters engage quickly if manual override is desired, otherwise the 8-spd programming is super efficient and very intuitive on it's shifts, even braking and throttle off for cornering, etc. I have turned in great avg 25 mpg combined driving and I have a lead foot at lights. This car feels much quicker than you could ever expect, the 4300# curb weight does not show. We have the HEMI 5.7 in our 13 Durango R/T and believe this motor/tranny combo outshines that motor with that 6spd. Extreme smoothness is what sold me on this vehicle, I like it better everyday and actually look forward to driving it. It rides very quiet, confident and smooth on the interstate, it's a true road car, it's Benz genes show here and are often overlooked by many shoppers. This car is more reliable than the '06 MB R class we owned in '06 by far. I hope Fiat does not kill the MB platforms they inherited in the Dodge Charger/Chrysler 300, Dodge Durango/Jeep Grand Cherokee, the Sprinter was chopped immediately for the Fiat cargo van and the SLK based Cross Fire years ago. So I will keep this one as long as I can!! Plus, I got the Redline tri-pearl coat color, remember I just bought this as a work car, never expected so many compliments on my cars looks by strangers(kids even) and friends."

"Comfort + Power = Fantastic driving experience. Living in the mountainous area of Pennsylvania with so many ups, downs, curves I finally found a vehicle that gives me the power I need and the comfort I've been looking for. Having 3 back surgeries I've got the power lumbar the air conditioned/heated seats that in colder months can stsrt my csr before I walk out the door. I showed it to my brother who also bought one."
