2016 Chrysler 300 OVERVIEW

Chrysler's largest sedan continues to thrive in a segment populated by far more conservative choices. The 300 takes aim at buyers who want traditional big-car virtues and don't mind standing out from the crowd.

What's New for 2016

Both the Limited and S get improvements to their respective suspension systems. A new trim package for the Limited commemorates Chrysler's ninetieth anniversary.

Choosing Your Chrysler 300

As in previous years, the rear-drive 300 comes standard with a 292-horsepower 3.6-liter V6 and eight-speed automatic transmission. The available 5.7-liter V8 produce 363 horsepower for luxuriously quick acceleration. Either way, you'll get a slick rotary gear selector instead of a traditional shifter. All-wheel drive is available on V6 models only.

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 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.

90th Anniversary Edition

Outfits the Limited with commemorative trim inside and out, plus a panoramic sunroof and standard navigation. All other options continue.


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. Additional standard features include the Beats Audio system and rearview camera. The S's Premium 1 package adds a panoramic sunroof, navigation, voice controls, and a auto-dimming driver side mirror. The Premium 2 rounds out the S with blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, upgraded interior lighting, heated rear seats, a heated steering wheel, driver memory settings, and power-adjustable steering wheel.

Both the Limited and S are eligible for a Light Group with adaptive bi-xenon headlamps with self-leveling ability.

CarsDirect Tip

The Limited handles with more confidence than ever thanks to this year's suspension tweaks. That makes upgrading to the S (at about $3,500 extra) unnecessary for the majority of buyers in this class.
