2015 Chrysler 300C Overview
- New 300C Platinum trim level
- More luxurious version of the 300 sedan
- V-6 or V-8 power
Chrysler gives the luxurious and brash 300C sedan plenty of updates for 2015, including new exterior styling and an upgrade to the four-door’s technology credentials on the inside.
The 300C has been the quintessential large American sedan since its debut and the latest edition continues that tradition with bold styling that has been revised with changes including a new grille, LED headlight accents, and wheel designs. The grille, which is now taller and sits deeper within the front fascia, serves as a bold pronouncement of the 300C’s squared off, muscular design. The fog light housings have been slimmed and lowered, while the new LED running lights form a “C” which faces out from the grille. There are seven total wheel designs which vary from 17- to 20-inches and a panoramic moonroof is optional.
There are two engine options; a 292-hp, 3.6-liter V-6 serves as the base engine, while a 363-hp, 5.7-liter V-8 is also available. Both engines are mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and standard rear-wheel drive. The V-6 is also available with all-wheel drive. The V-8 engine does offer cylinder deactivation technology to improve fuel economy.
Inside, the 300C adds a new 7-inch customizable screen to the instrument panel which delivers useful information to the driver. There is also a new rotary gear selector knob and the controls on the center console have been reworked as well. Standard features include navigation, heated front and rear seats, USB port, auto-dimming rearview mirror, Bluetooth connectivity, an 8.4-inch touchscreen that houses the UConnect multimedia system, and dual-zone automatic climate control. The build quality and materials found in the 300C qualify it as a luxury car.
Standard safety features include active head restraints, seven airbags, electronic stability control, and antilock brakes. Also available is an impressive array of safety technology including a rearview camera, forward collision warnings with automatic braking, blind sport warnings with rear cross-path detection, lane departure warnings, and adaptive cruise control that even works in traffic to bring the 300C to a complete stop.
