2016 Chrysler 300
The Chrysler 300 was first produced 1955 and the original model was continually refreshed until production was paused in 1971. The 300 returned in 1979 and was only produced for one year. It then returned in 1999 as the ninth generation Chrysler 300 and was produced until 2004.
In 2005, the Chrysler 300 entered its tenth generation, sharing little with the previous models. Eschewing front-wheel drive and adding Chrysler’s award winning, racetrack proven HEMI V8 and optional all-wheel drive gave shoppers the new option of a powerful, yet elegant sedan to consider when buying a car.
The Chrysler 300 Limited is powered by a 3.6-liter V6 that turns out 292-horsepower. It’s connected to the rear wheels through an eight-speed, shiftable automatic transmission and returns 19 MPG city and 31 MPG highway. Priced at $32,015, the 300 Limited is a viable option for buyers that are in the market for a full-sized sedan. Its standard rear wheel drive offers performance that is not found in front wheel drive vehicles, which is the standard for sports cars. All-wheel drive is also an available option on the 300 Limited.
The 300 Limited, the 300’s most basic model, is equipped with heated front seats that are equipped with eight-way power controls. Along with the car’s leather seating, the dual-zone automatic climate control allows for a ride in absolute comfort.
Other standard interior features of the 300 Limited are the 8.4-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth connectivity, USB connects, Wi-Fi hotspot access and a six-speaker sound system that gives drivers and passengers the power needed for work and play. A navigation system is an available additional option on the 300 Limited.
In its most basic form, the 300 has a classy exterior. It has a smooth and sleek body and a large black front grille which has Chrysler’s recently updated logo. It sits on 17- inch platinum painted rims and Michelin tires. There are dual-rear exhaust tips and heated exterior windows. Buyers have the option of nine different colors.
There are a variety of standard safety features on the Chrysler 300. Anti-lock disk brakes at all four corners, traction and stability control, front k
nee and side curtain airbags and automatic crash notification via the Uconnect Access system to keep drivers and passengers connected in the event of a mishap. There is also a tire pressure monitoring system and remote proximity keyless entry.

The Chrysler 300C Platinum can be equipped with the V6 of the 300 Limited or buyers can opt for a V8.

The 300C Platinum is available in all-wheel drive, but not when powered with the V8.
The 300 has five available trims and the Chrysler 300C Platinum is the most luxurious.Touring suspension, dual pane panoramic sunroof (optional on the Limited), ParkSense front/rear park assist system is standard and full speed forward collision warning is available as an option on the Platinum model 300C.
