Introducing the 2019 Chrysler 300
2019 marks the 15th model year of the Chrysler 300, a sedan that consistently delivers on the brand’s promise of elegant design, efficiency, performance, and quality – all at an affordable value. Common Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) features like the Uconnect 4C infotainment system and the classic award-winning Pentastar V6 engine make an appearance in the 300, but the numerous style packages and seemingly endless upgrades available make the 300 the best in its class.
Different Strokes for Different Folks
All trims of the 300 share the same TorqueFlite eight-speed transmission that delivers 30 miles per gallon (when powered by the Pentastar V6 engine) of fuel economy while on the highway, meanwhile when powered by the V8 engine, the 300C has a combined fuel economy of 25 mpg. The shared transmission is as far as these trims go in terms of similarities. A more athletic and youthful look can be seen on the 300S trim, complete with paddle shifters, sport mode, performance suspension, leather-wrapped sport seats, and blacked-out interior accents. On the other hand, the 300C positions itself as the pinnacle of the lineup – complete with model-exclusive chrome finishes, 20-inch polished-aluminum wheels, a signature two-tone interior, deep-quilted and perforated Nappa leather seats, hand-sanded natural pore woods, French accent stitching, and a trim-exclusive leather-wrapped steering wheel with a one-of-a-kind chrome accent ring.
The sport mode hones in on the performance aspect of the Chrysler 300, reducing shift times down to 250 milliseconds, improving engine and throttle responsiveness, and automatically turning on the all-wheel-drive when necessary for improved dynamics. Drivers that seek even more performance from their Chrysler 300C can enjoy an upgrade to the legendary 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine that’s capable of delivering up to 363 horsepower and 394 lb-ft of torque. Those potential buyers looking to save money in the long run shouldn’t be put off by the costs of owning a car with a hefty V8 engine – this V8 comes equipped with Fuel Saver Technology that, thanks to its sensors, automatically deactivates four of the eight cylinders when all eight are unnecessary (when cruising on the highway for example). It also helps that the engine has the best-in-class V8 total range at a whopping 352 miles!
Rear-wheel-drive 300S models are in a league of their own as they have the option to offer a performance-tuned suspension complete with increased spring rates, performance-tuned steering and bushings, larger sway bars with the V8 engine (optional), and Goodyear Eagle F1 three-season tires.
What’s new for 2019?
Chrysler is extending their Sport Appearance Package to the Touring trim, while a new Black Noise wheel finish is now standard on the 300S models.
Clearly the 2019 Chrysler 300 offers so many different options across all their five trims that it’s hard not to feel like as if the car has been customized to fit a potential buyer’s taste. Whether prospective owners are looking for performance or luxury, or a wonderful combination of both, the Chrysler 300 delivers.
