Overview

What's New

The 2021 Chrysler 300 lineup has narrowed with the departure of the plush Limited and 300C trims. The Sporty S model now comes standard with black exterior trim with red accents. Both the S and the mid-level Touring L gain standard parking sensors and blind-spot monitoring. Some popular options have been grouped into packages for easier ordering.

The current 300 debuted back in 2011 and has received occasional styling and equipment updates since then.

Choosing Your Chrysler 300

The 300 now comes in just three trim levels: Touring, Touring L, and S. Pricing starts at $31,940 including destination and climbs to $38,890 for the S before options.

Engine Choices

Most 300s are powered by a V6 engine. A V8 is available only on the S for $4,000.

Engine TypeHorsepowerTorqueFuel Economy (Combined)
3.6L V6 292 hp (300 on S)260 lb-ft23 mpg
5.7L V8363 hp394 lb-ft19 mpg

An eight-speed automatic transmission delivers power to the rear wheels. All-wheel drive is available on the Touring and Touring L for $2,750.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The 300 is every bit a full-size sedan, so five can travel in comfort. The trunk holds 16.3 cubic feet, which is typical for a car this size.

Safety Features

The Touring lacks availability of driver assistance technology. Stepping up to the Touring L or S brings blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert and front and rear parking sensors.

Everything else is bundled into the SafetyTec Plus Group, which provides adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, automatic high beams and wipers, and front collision mitigation with automatic braking. The bundle costs $2,395 on the Touring L and $1,795 on the S.

A sign of the 300's age, more advanced features like surround-view cameras and a head-up display aren't offered.

Connectivity

The standard infotainment system includes an 8.4-inch touchscreen, six speakers, two front USB ports, HD and satellite radio, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.

Six Alpine speakers are included in the Touring L's SafetyTec Plus Group. They're standard on the S.

The Popular Equipment Group for the Touring L and S ($3,495) adds a nine-speaker Alpine surround-sound system, navigation, a five-year SiriusXM subscription, and a panoramic sunroof.

Touring — From $31,940

The Touring comes equipped with cloth upholstery, an eight-way power driver seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, dual-zone automatic climate control, and 17-inch painted aluminum wheels. The Driver Convenience Group ($995) adds remote start, LED fog lights, a universal home remote, a comfort-tuned suspension, and 18-inch polished aluminum wheels.

For the outside, Chrysler offers a Chrome Appearance Package ($1,500) with 20-inch polished wheels, chrome mirror caps, and a platinum grille. Buyers can go in the other direction with the Sport Appearance Package, also $1,500, which provides black 20-inch wheels, LED taillights, and gloss black body trim.

Touring L — From $35,115

The Touring L picks up leather upholstery, heated front seats, a power passenger seat, and the Driver Convenience Group contents. The optional Comfort Group ($2,295) adds perforated leather seat inserts, driver memory settings, a heated power-adjustable steering wheel, heated rear seats, upgraded LED interior lighting, adaptive bi-xenon headlights, a power rear sunshade, and auto-dimming side mirrors.

The Sport Appearance and Chrome Appearance packages remain available, priced at $995 here.

S — From $38,890

The S adopts a sport-tuned suspension, front sport seats, and the Sport Appearance exterior treatment with red accents added. The Comfort Group continues with the addition of ventilated front seats and a lower price, $1,995.

The S Model Appearance Package ($2,195) equips the S with an aggressive body-color front fascia, a rear spoiler, and fog lamps borrowed from the departed SRT model.

CarsDirect Tip

The base Touring model's lack of safety technology makes it a non-starter for us. The Touring L will satisfy buyers who associate the 300 with comfort and luxury — which is certainly most of them. Upgrading to the S makes sense to get the V8 engine, which is more appropriate to a sedan of this stature than the V6.

Blast-from-the-past ‘Merican sedan: Nothing says ‘Merica like apple pie, a cheeseburger, and a boxy V8-powered sedan. That’s precisely what the 2021 Chrysler 300 is: A big ol’ slice of Americana.

This sedan not only offers retro looks and V8 power, but it also adds in comfort expected from classic American sedans. This aligns it with a specific group of buyers who crave that old-school feel without the old-school tech.

Continue reading to find out if the 2021 Chrysler 300’s retro feel makes it a good option for you or if you’re better-suited in a more modern sedan with the latest features.

Handsome, retro design but also retro safety scores: The Chrysler 300 got its design right back in 2005, ditching the swoopy design Chrysler slapped on the 1999-2004 300M, bringing in a classic boxy look. This gave it a touch of retro that Chrysler massaged in 2011 to create the stunning sedan in front of us today.

The 2021 Chrysler 300 is an incredible combination of classic design and modern features that’s lacking in the segment, which is why the automaker’s let it ride out with minimal changes for about a decade.

This if-it-ain’t-broke approach has served the 300 well design-wise, but not so much in safety. The dated structure can’t hold up to today’s crash-test standards, earning a “Marginal” rating in the driver-side small overlap test. Its headlight tech is also well behind, scoring a “Poor” rating. It does have a “Superior”-rated vehicle-to-vehicle automatic emergency braking system, but it's optional and not available on the base trim.

Buyers seeking top-notch safety tech can head to any other showroom (other than Dodge) and pick up a model with a full assortment of standard safety gear. Standouts in this arena include the Nissan Maxima, Kia K900, Genesis G80, and Toyota Avalon.

V8 power with a big appetite: Like its cross-town cousin, the Charger, the Chrysler 300 offers more than just throwback looks – it also has a throwback V8 powertrain. The optional 5.7-liter HEMI V8 injects 363 horsepower and 394 pound-feet of torque, and it offers a mighty growl that nothing in the class can match.

The 292-hp V6 isn’t nearly as exciting but matches most of the V6 options in its competitors, plus it has optional all-wheel drive.

Where the 300 drops the ball is fuel economy. With the V8, the 2021 Chrysler 300 gets 16 miles per gallon city, 25 highway, and 19 combined. The closest to this is the twin-turbo K900, which gets 18 mpg city, 25 highway, and 21 combined. Every other competitor is significantly higher.

Buyers who want superior fuel economy from a family sedan can opt for the 43-mpg-combined Avalon Hybrid.


Chrysler 300

Superior front-seat comfort; Back seats? Not so much: The 2021 Chrysler 300 continues its retro ways with thick, comfortable front thrones with all the support you’d ever need. Add Nappa leather to the mix, and you’ve got all-day comfort.

In the rear, there’s ample leg room at 40.1 inches. However, the rear-wheel-drive platform limits rear seat comfort because it requires a low-riding seat cushion and a shorter seat, eroding the benefits of all that leg room.

Front-wheel-drive options like the Avalon and Camry have better rear seat formats. Even the rear-driven G80 has a superior back seat.

The 300 pulls buyers back in with its monstrous 16.3-cubic-foot trunk. The Avalon comes close at 16.1 cubes, but the G80 (13.1 cubes), K900 (15.3 cubes), and Maxima (14.3 cubes) all fall well short.

The 300’s interior also keeps up in terms of technology with its standard 8.4-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, two USB chargers, and more.

Final thoughts: The 2021 Chrysler 300 caters to specific buyers who miss the simplicity of yesteryear’s designs but still want today’s modern conveniences.

Buyers who are concerned about fuel economy may want to skip the 2021 Chrysler 300, especially the V8-powered versions. These buyers may be better-suited in the Avalon Hybrid or Camry Hybrid.

If safety is a concern, the 300 is also not a great option, as it has so-so crash test scores and limited standard safety gear. These buyers would be best-suited in a Toyota Avalon, Genesis G80, or a Nissan Maxima.
