Chrysler 300 Has Won Again with the Ideal Vehicle Award for Sizeable Car
Chrysler 300 has another award under its belt. It’s been on the Larger Car category of the AutoPacific Ideal Vehicle Awards for the second year in a row. Where do the award scores come from?
“AutoPacific’s Ideal Vehicle Awards are based on scores developed using results from the automotive research and consulting firm’s New Vehicle Satisfaction Survey. More than 50,000 respondents rated 14 vehicle attributes based on their desire for change. Those vehicles whose owners want the least change rank highest in their class for the Ideal Vehicle Award,” according to a spokesperson in FCA North America.
As for entertainment, the 2019 Chrysler 300 has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. There’s an 8.4-inch touch screen, which was previously mentioned, that has received praise as being one of the largest screen available in its class. Nothing wrong with having a little more space to view things easily.
There are five available trim levels for 2019 which are powered with a standard 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine and those are the Touring, the Touring L, 300S, the Limited and the 300C. The powertrain makes 292 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque with a TorqueFlight eight-speed automatic transmission. The vehicle has an optional 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine available that produces 363 horsepower and 394 lb-ft of torque.
The 2020 Chrysler 300 offers the same powertrain options and over 80 safety features and technologies. Adding to the appeal is the available Red S Appearance Package. The S Appearance Package has new 20-inch Black Noise wheels, Black Noise exterior badging and a Red insert located on the Chrysler wing badge.
There is plenty of room in both rows of seating as the 300 can seat up to five people. Adults can ride comfortably and get in and out of the car, without hassle. There are more than 16 cubic feet of trunk space, giving plenty of space to the vacations you can take with families and friends.
300 Infotainment, Bluetooth, and Navigation:
To stay connected, the 300 has a standard infotainment system that includes an 8.4-inch touch screen, a panoramic sunroof, two USB ports, two premium audio systems available, and a six-speaker audio system. There’s also satellite radio, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. The system is very user-friendly, and with its intuitive response, you can see why.
AutoPacific analyzes the results of their New Vehicle Satisfaction Survey every year. The award also has top-performing vehicles. There are three awards and they are as follows:
Vehicle Satisfaction Award (VSA):
VSA is known as AutoPacific’s industry benchmark which measures just how content the owner of the vehicle is with their new purchase. Autopacifica is different from other automotive awards. The award focuses on owner satisfaction.
The President’s Award recognizes, just like the Vehicle Satisfaction Award, when a vehicle has gone far and beyond. When it’s deserving of a higher honor. When it achieves this award it’s because the vehicle has surpassed every other vehicle that was tested in the research.
Ideal Vehicle Award (IVA):
Ideal Vehicle Award is the mix of reality with the owner’s expectation. As for an ideal vehicle it has to be one that meets an owner’s expectation when they acquire it. The buyers that are already driving their “ideal” car, don’t want to change their vehicles.
