, Automotive Editor -
With its combination of performance, style and value, the Chrysler 300 is an appealing alternative to competitors in a variety of segments.

Introduction

The Chrysler 300 is just one among many models striving for a top spot in the full-size sedan segment. Buyers today are increasingly drawn to smaller cars, but the 300's roomy interior, high-end standard features, and surprisingly affordable price tag make it an excellent alternative to both top-tier sedans and cramped compacts.

What's New

2014 Chrysler 300 Base

Recommended for: Buyers who want a dependable American sedan with the feel of a luxury model.

Though buyers today are often drawn to compact cars, the 2014 Chrysler 300 gives smaller models a run for their money. With its cushy interior, powerful engines, and competitive standard features, the 300 offers the luxury of a high-end sedan at a more affordable price,

The 300 provides an excellent range of amenities, starting at the base level. Notable comfort features include leather upholstery, heated mirrors, and 8-way power seats.

Entertainment is taken care of with satellite radio, iPod connectivity, Bluetooth, a central touchscreen, and a six-speaker sound system. For added convenience, keyless entry and ignition also come standard.

Those who need even more brawn can upgrade to a 5.7-liter V8 with a five-speed automatic transmission.

Inside, the S has special black accents, a rearview camera, and a 10-speaker sound system. Remote start also comes standard.

2014 Chrysler 300 SRT8

Recommended for: Buyers who want the ultimate luxury and sport experience.

The primo SRT8 has it all: looks, luxury and -- most importantly -- performance. Upgraded 20-inch wheels make handling a joy, while a sport-tuned performance suspension with three driving modes puts even more power in the driver's hands.

Comfort and tech features carry over from the 300, S, and SRT8 Core, and the SRT8 offers a number of standard features that are only available as upgrades at lower trim levels.

New for this ultimate level are front parking sensors, adaptive bi-xenon headlights, and faux suede upholstery.

All in all, the SRT8 is the quintessential mix of good old-fashioned American engineering, big sports car personality, and stable, comfortable sedan practicality.

2014 Chrysler 300 SRT8 Core

Recommended for: Drivers who want a dependable sedan disguised as a sports car.

The SRT8 Core takes its queues from the base level, and has many of the same standard features. It diverges when it comes to the engine, however, offering a 6.4-liter V8 with 470 horsepower.

Performance is a focus at this level, and the SRT8 Core has 20-inch wheels, shift paddles, and a special performance-oriented stability system with three sport mode options. Black exterior details and cloth-covered sport seats add the finishing touches.
