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.
Other than a few tweaks to trim level options, not much has changed for the 300 in 2014.
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.
The base 300 is equipped with a strong 3.6-liter V6 that puts out 292 horsepower. An eight-speed automatic with rear-wheel drive is standard, but buyers can upgrade to all-wheel drive for added maneuverability.
Like the 300, the 300 S has a 3.6-liter V6, but it kicks in another 8 horsepower for added oomph. It also offers a sport driving mode with shift paddles, performance tires, and a unique sport suspension for extra handling control.
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.
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.
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.

Impressive design with lots of cabin space, but engines are less powerful
Competitive standard features and plenty of trunk space, but driving performance is lackluster
Good fuel economy and excellent resale value, but not particularly dynamic in appearance or handling
Luxurious interior and sporty handling, but with only one trim level, the starting price is a bit high
