Chrysler 300 for 2015 has been revamped to accommodate style, size and value. This four-door sedan is offered in three variants, each suiting to the taste of the prospective client. These are 300 S, 300 C and 300C Platinum.
In terms of ranking among full-sized sedans, our babe here competes with the likes of Nissan Maxima, Toyota Avalon and Chevrolet Impala—all of which are top-rankers in the category.
Exterior and Interior
After 10 years, the Ralph Gille concept has been redesigned to accommodate what beholds our eyes today. The make-over includes a new nose and tail treatments highlighting a larger grille, redesigned lights, offbeat interior and an 8-speed automatic gearbox controlled by a rotary dial located on the console.
Options, which also mean additional bucks, give you the opportunity for customization and more personal touch. Under the 300S Premium package of $3295, you may have the dual-pane panoramic roof, navigation system, the SafetyTec 1 features, the big UConnect screen, satellite radio, etc. Other noteworthy highlights include the $895 Light Group with self-leveling HID headlamps, the $1500 worth of customized roof colorin black set against the Redline red paint.
Engine, Transmission and Price
Although Chrysler 300 has been endowed with a new V8, the new gearbox really determines the performance of this beast. The 8-speed automatic transmission oversees fuel economy and its manual shifting mode feature works hard in maintaining fuel cost within economical boundaries.
