Fun on the corners and amazing in the snow

After years of driving SUVs I wanted to get a car, but it needed all wheel drive and modern technology. This car met all the requirements. I compared to the Infiniti lineup of cars that also featured 300 hp, all wheel drive, etc. the Chrysler is just superior in all the ways that matter. Leg room was far better, apple CarPlay vs whatever dated OS they offered, it was an easy choice. This cars all wheel drive system is fantastic. Better than my Honda Pilot, for example.

I love this car! It has all the options!

by 300driveronly from Gilbert, MN | April 09, 2020

My last car was a 2005 Chrysler 300 and it was an excellent car! I only traded it in for a newer vehicle with less miles but didn’t realize at the time that the Sport edition would not be as big in the back seat. The only reason I am selling this vehicle is because I want to buy a 300 Touring or Limited just for the little extra room. I hope I can get all the options in a newer car that this car has because now I’m spoiled!

2017 Chrysler 300 Overview

New/Notable

The 2017 Chrysler 300 is a full-size sedan that competes with the Ford Taurus, Toyota Avalon, and Hyundai Genesis. This year, it remains largely unchanged. However, the standard Uconnect multimedia system has been updated. The higher-performance 300C will be covered in a separate overview.

Two trim levels are available: the 300 Limited and 300S.

Overall, the 300 has a boxy, muscular design with minimalistic body lines. The front-end features a massive rectangular grille, rhombus-shaped headlights, a narrow-slit lower fascia, and Chrysler’s winged emblem. At the rear, vertical slab taillights take a diminutive presence in favor of clean lines for the trunk lid and blockish rear bumper. Standard features include power/heated side mirrors, a power trunk lid, a dual-pipe exhaust system, and 18-inch alloy wheels. Adaptive Bi-Xenon headlights, LED front fog lights, turn-signal indicators at the side mirrors, a panoramic moonroof, and unique 20-inch aluminum wheels are available as well. The 300S has an available Model Appearance Package with a more aggressive front-end with black-out accents, premium LED fog lights, and a rear spoiler.

Under the hood, the 300 is powered by a standard 292-hp, 3.6-liter V-6 engine, while the 300S is driven by a more powerful 363-hp 5.7-liter V-8 HEMI engine that produces 394 pounds-feet of torque. Both engines are mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission and standard rear-wheel drive (RWD) or optional all-wheel drive (AWD). Fuel economy for the V-6 models is an EPA-estimated 19/30 mpg city/highway (RWD) and 18/27 mpg (AWD). The ratings lower to 16/25 mpg and for the V-8 models.

Inside, the 300 has a standard leather-trim interior with a 60/40 split-folding rear seat. A unique, black rotary shifter replaces the conventional shift knob. The center stack feature the new Uconnect multimedia system, which includes an 8.4-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatibility, Bluetooth connectivity for phone and audio, voice recognition, and dual USB ports. It can be upgraded with an integrated navigation system and a Beats premium audio system. Standard features dual-zone automatic climate control, heated front seats, power windows/locks, remote keyless entry, and push-button start. Available features include Nappa leather upholstery, a memory seat, ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, a heated steering wheel, a power tilt/telescoping steering wheel are also available.

The 300 earned a 4- out of 5-star overall crash test safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Standard safety features include a backup camera and a tire pressure monitoring system. Available features include a blindspot warning system, rear cross-traffic alert, front and rear park assist, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, and lane departure warning.
