Chrysler's largest and most luxurious model is one of a handful of sedans that can win you over on style alone. It's an unabashedly American cruiser with all of the size, power, and comfort that traditional-minded buyers can't seem to live without.
What's New for 2017
Aside from minor adjustments to equipment packages, the 300 is unchanged.
Choosing Your Chrysler 300
As in previous years, the 300 starts out with a 3.6-liter V6 engine that produces 292 horsepower. The optional 5.7-liter V8 musters 363 horsepower. Both engines are hooked to an eight-speed automatic transmission with a rotary gear selector. All 300s come standard with rear-wheel drive, but V6 models are available with all-wheel drive.
The 300 comes in two basic trim levels, the comfort-oriented Limited and sportier S. (The high-luxury 300C is covered in a separate entry.)
Selecting the Premium Group on either the Limited or S is a cost-efficient way of getting a well-equipped 300. The S's performance and style enhancements (which come at a $3,335 premium) certainly give a more interesting appearance, but the Limited's comfort-tuned suspension make it a more sensible choice for most buyers.
