Vehicle Profile: 2016 Chrysler 300C Platinum
Nothing compares to Platinum

The full-sized American luxury sedan is alive and well, and the Chrysler 300 is leading the charge. When you’re looking for the highest levels of comfort and luxury, the 2016 Chrysler 300C Platinum, available now here at Perkins Motors in Colorado Springs, Colorado, is what you want.

Regardless of which 300 you choose – from the 2016 Chrysler 300 Limited (MSRP from $31,695) all the way through the top-of-the-line 300C Platinum – you’re rewarded with a powerful, efficient, luxurious sedan – the sedan that was the “Highest Ranked Large Car in Initial Quality” in the 2015 J.D. Power 2015 U.S. Initial Quality Study™.

The hallmark of the 300C Platinum is sheer elegance. It’s those little touches that helped the 300C Platinum earn a spot on last year’s Ward's “10 Best Interiors” list. Drew Winter, WardsAuto World magazine editor-in-chief said, “The quilted leather trim and patterned upholstery are similar to what we see on German luxury sedans costing three times as much. The huge touchscreen and Uconnect infotainment system is about the best at any price. Yet it also has wonderfully practical details, such as stout grab handles and a truly sturdy sunglasses holder. ‘I could live in this car,’ says one judge. Yes indeed. And live well.”

The 300C Platinum cabin features only premium materials, including hand-sanded natural-pore Mocha-finished wood, satin chrome lower door sills, luxury floor mats, and rich ambient LED lighting in the front footwells. Attention to detail is reflected in the quilted, Poltrona Frau “Foligno” leather on the door panels and the French-seamed accent stitching. You also get features like heated and cooled cup holders, power adjustable pedals, heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, and a heated steering wheel wrapped in premium leather. Infotainment is provided by a Uconnect® 8.4AN system with 3D navigation, SiriusXM Travel Link, SiriusXM Satellite Radio and Bluetooth; as well as a 19-speaker, 900-watt harman/kardon premium audio system with 7.1 Matrix surround sound.

The exterior adds a trims-specific door handles, deck lid and fascia; a panoramic dual-pane sunroof; and 20-inch polished cast-aluminum wheels. The grille features a platinum surround and is flanked by High Intensity Discharge headlamps with Adaptive Forward Lighting.

As with other 300 models, the 300C Platinum offers two engine choices – an award-winning 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 and a 5.7-liter HEMI® V8. If you choose the V6 you get 292 hp, 260 lb/ft of torque and a best-in-class EPA-estimated 31 mpg highway. The V8 delivers a best-in-class 363 hp, 392 lb/ft of torque and an EPA-estimated 25 mpg highway. Each engine is paired with a TorqueFlite® eight-speed automatic transmission with an electronic rotary e-shifter that does away with shift levers for smoother shifts. Both the transmission and the rotary shifter are class-exclusive features. The 300C Platinum is also available with an all-wheel drive system that’s the most advanced and one of the most efficient in the segment, enabling maximum traction and performance in all conditions.

The 2016 Chrysler 300C Platinum is the cream of the 300 crop. Come in to see and drive it for yourself today.
