Vehicle Details: 2015 Chrysler 300 Advantages
The excellent 300 continues to stand out

With a bold and elegant look, a sophisticated, luxurious interior and technology that’s both advanced and easy to use, the 2015 Chrysler 300 sedan is both expressive and practical. The 2015 300, on sale now here at Perkins Motors in Colorado Springs, Colorado, continues to improve and continues to stay ahead of the competition.


The 2015 Chrysler 300 celebrates more than 60 years of iconic design with special inspiration derived from the classic 1955 model and the 2005 model, as well. There are big changes for 2015. You’ll immediately notice the bolder front grille, signature LED lighting, and new wheel designs. The 300 also has the face you’ll notice, especially compared to more bland models like the Toyota Avalon, Ford Taurus and Buick LaCrosse. In fact Autoweek editors said, "The Chrysler 300 is unique. In a market increasingly subdivided to satisfy every possible need, the machines themselves can actually get harder to differentiate. ‘Unique’ is one of the highest compliments we can pay. Long live the 300." 


Even with all its enhancements, the 2015 300 starts at the same price as the 2014 model (MSRP from $31,395) and is more affordable than competitors like the Toyota Avalon. Even better, the 300 comes well-equipped with features not found on the competition and a powertrain that’s second to none.


The term “best-in-class” should be considered a standard feature when you’re talking about the powertrains in the 300. The award-winning 3.6-liter V6 produces up to an impressive 300 hp and 264 lb/ft of torque through a TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission, and it’s good for unsurpassed combined fuel economy EPA-estimated at 23 mpg, plus highway fuel economy of 31 mpg. Next, there’s a 5.7-liter HEMI V8 with 363 hp and 394 lb/ft of torque, both best-in-class numbers, and a sub six-second zero-to-60 mph time. Driving range of the HEMI V8 is also best-in-class. The Avalon tops out at a paltry 268 hp, and, as is also true for the LaCrosse, Taurus and Chevrolet Impala, no V8 engine choice is available.


The eight-speed automatic transmission in the 2015 300 is more advanced and fuel efficient than the six-speed units you’ll find on the aforementioned competitors, and it features a class-exclusive electronic rotary transmission shifter. Again unlike the Avalon and the Impala, the 300 is available with a performance-enhancing all-wheel drive system. In fact this AWD system is the most technologically advanced in the segment, with a segment-exclusive front axle disconnect and active transfer case to maximize fuel economy.


Inside, the 300 cabin is the most technologically advanced and luxurious in the segment. Some of the standout features found in the 2015 300 include LED interior lighting, Black Olive Ash Burl wood or low-gloss hand-sanded natural-pore Mocha-finished wood, a variety of leather choices, including Nappa leather and Poltrona Frau ‘Foligno’ leather, the segment’s largest dual-pane sunroof and the largest touch-screen, checking in at 8.4 inches. That touch-screen is part of the award-winning Uconnect® 8.4AN system, which features navigation, Bluetooth and SiriusXM Satellite Radio. Other infotainment options include a 552-watt Beats audio system and a 900-watt, 19-speaker harman/kardon unit that is also a standout in the segment. No competitor offers what the 300 can. Another 300 advantage is space – it includes best-in-class interior and rear-seat volume.


If all that wasn’t enough, the 300 again bests the competition with more than 80 available safety and security features. In addition to standard features like the electronic stability control and traction control systems present across the segment, the 300 stands out with items like Adaptive Cruise Control-Plus with Full Stop, Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist, Full Speed Forward Collision Warning-Plus and 911 Call/Assist Call.


The 2015 Chrysler 300 rises above everything else in the segment with performance, style, luxury and safety that make it a real standout. Stop by today for a test drive, and discover more Chrysler 300 advantages for yourself.
