2015 Chrysler 300 Overview

John Diether
Automotive Editor - February 3, 2015

Chrysler's flagship sedan shows off some evolutionary changes this year, but it's still every bit the flamboyant cruiser that debuted a decade ago. The 300 just keeps getting better at turning heads and coddling its passengers.

What's New for 2015

The 300 gets updated styling inside and out, along with enhanced safety and infotainment technology. The high-performance SRT8 has been put on hiatus for now.

Choosing Your Chrysler 300

The 300 doesn't look appreciably different than before, just a tad more distinguished throughout. Last year's engines carry over, which means you can go with the standard 292-horsepower 3.6-liter V6, or upgrade to a 5.7-liter V8 producing 363 horsepower. Both engines now feature an eight-speed automatic transmission with a rotary gear selector instead of a traditional shifter. An electric power steering system is also new. All V8 300s are rear-drive, and the V6 is available with all-wheel drive.

The 300 comes in two basic trim levels, the comfort-oriented Limited and sportier S:


Features a leather interior with heated power front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, Bluetooth phone and audio, keyless access and ignition, 17-inch aluminum wheels (19s with all-wheel drive), Chrysler's Uconnect infotainment interface, and a six-speaker sound system with satellite radio.

Nearly all of the Limited's available options are bundled into the Premium group, including a premium Beats Audio sound system, remote start, a rearview camera, front and rear parking sensors, blind spot monitoring, cross traffic alert, LED foglamps and a navigation system. These features are also available in a series of smaller packages if you don't need the full suite.


Takes the 300 in a sporty direction with a firmer suspension, performance seats, 20-inch black aluminum wheels (19s with all-wheel drive), paddle shifters and a Sport driving mode. V6 models get 8 additional horsepower for an even 300.

The Premium group remains optional, minus the rearview camera and Beats system (which come standard) and with the addition of a panoramic sunroof.

Exclusive to the S is the Safetytec 2 option package with adaptive cruise controls, lane departure warning, forward collision alert, rain-sensing wipers and automatic high beams. There's also a Luxury group featuring heated rear seats, a heated power-adjustable steering wheel, driver memory settings and auto-dimming side mirrors. Adaptive bi-xenon headlamps can be added as well.

CarsDirect Tip

Selecting the Premium group on either trim level is a cost-efficient way of getting a fully loaded car. The S's performance and style enhancements (which come at a $3,500 premium) certainly make the 300 more interesting, but the Limited's comfort-tuned suspension make it a more sensible choice for most buyers.
