The Chrysler 300 has a boxy, muscular design with a distinctively massive grill. Even though its body lines are quite minimal, the 300 strikes a very bold presence as a full-size sedan. Standard features include heated power side mirrors and keyless push-button start. A panoramic sunroof, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and larger 18-, 19-, and 20-inch aluminum wheels are also available.
The Chrysler 300 comes standard with a 292-hp, 3.6-liter V-6 engine mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive (RWD).The 300S has the same engine but it has been tuned to achieve 300-hp. A 363-hp, 5.7-liter V-8 is available for the 300S, 300C, and 300C Platinum trim levels. All-wheel drive (AWD) is also available. For trims with the V-6 and RWD configuration, the Chrysler 300 gets an EPA-estimated 19/31 mpg city/highway. Opting for the V-6 and AWD drops fuel economy to 18/27 mpg. Furthermore, fuel economy drops to 16/25 mpg for the V-8 and RWD, and 15/23 mpg for the V-8 and AWD.
Inside, the Chrysler 300 has upscale, leather-trimmed seats and stitched-pattern door panels.
