If you’re looking for a sedan that looks and drives like a much more expensive vehicle, you should strongly consider the 2017 Chrysler 300.
The premium sedan segment is a competitive one, with models offering the comfort and amenities of a luxury vehicle at an affordable price. The Chrysler 300 is a stand-out in the class, and the 2017 model gets even more features to further distinguish itself from the competition.
The fourth-generation Uconnect® infotainment system features smartphone integration on all models with both Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ enabling you to focus less on your smartphone and more on the road. The newest Uconnect system is also faster with enhanced processing power and sharper graphics. For additional attitude, you can equip the 300 with Exterior and Interior Sport Appearance Packages and a new Ceramic Gray exterior paint color. An Alloy Edition Package, with Detroit-born style, uses Dark Bronze accents outside and both Caramel stitching and Liquid Titanium accents to further elevate the blacked out design.
No matter which of the four 300 models you choose (300 Limited, 300S, 300C and 300C Platinum) you get either the 3.6-liter Pentastar® V6 or 5.7-liter HEMI V8, and the availability of the segment’s most advanced all-wheel drive system that maximizes handling and performance without the fuel economy penalty most AWD systems carry. Both engines are also paired to a TorqueFlite eight-speed transmission that helps deliver best-in-class driving ranges for both the V6 and V8 on top of best-in-class V6 highway fuel ratings of 31 mpg highway. The V6 produces up to 300 hp and 264 lb/ft of torque (on 300S models), with the HEMI V8 pushing those numbers up to 363 hp and 394 lb/ft of torque, good for a sub six-second sprint to 60 mph.
Customization is a big part of the 300 and you can choose from nine exterior colors, including the new, striking Ceramic Gray Clear Coat, and five interior colors themes, highlighted by the new Black/Sydney Gray combination. Wheels range from 18- to 20-inches and you can add various packages so you can get be sure to find the right level of luxury for your taste.
Inside the cabin of the 300 is luxurious and comfortable with standard nappa leather upholstery and available in your choice of five colors. Dual-zone automatic temperature control with air filtration, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, eight-way power front seats with heating function, and Bluetooth® wireless connectivity are all standard, and you can add the Uconnect® 8.4 infotainment system with the segment’s largest touchscreen.
A big, bold grille (in black or granite crystal), available auto leveling, adaptive Bi-Xenon high intensity discharge headlights, and standard LED daytime running lights give the 300 a powerful presence. Heated exterior mirrors, an acoustic windshield and solar controlled windows are standard too.
In addition to standard features like Electronic Stability Control, Traction Control Rain Brake Support, ParkView rear backup camera and a Tire Pressure Monitoring Display, the 300 is available with a SafetyTec™ Plus Group that adds advanced features like Blind-spot Monitoring, Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist, Full-speed Forward Collision Warning – Plus, Rear Cross Path detection and Adaptive Cruise Control-Plus with Full Stop.
