Overview

What's New

Chrysler’s venerable 300 has been around for almost two decades, and there are no significant changes for the 2022 model year. Minor tweaks include a new N95-standard cabin air filter, and an alarm bundled into the Comfort Group package.

Choosing Your Chrysler 300

The 2022 Chrysler 300 range starts with rear-wheel drive Touring, costing $35,140 including destination, and rising to the $46,945 V8 S. Upgrading to AWD costs $2,555 on Touring and $2,250 on L, though it’s not an option on S models despite their greater power.

Engine Choices

The most affordable way into 300 ownership involves the venerable 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine, generating 292 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. This is fed to either the rear or all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission, returning an EPA-estimated 19 miles per gallon city, 30 mpg highway, and 23 combined. In S models, power nudges up to 300 hp and 264 lb-ft while fuel economy is unchanged, though ordering an AWD vehicle drops these figures to 18/27/21 mpg.

Available exclusively in S trim with RWD, the 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine uses the same transmission but displaces 363 hp and 387 lb-ft of torque. Economy is only slightly down on the AWD V6, at 16/25/19 mpg respectively.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

Cargo capacity for the five-seater 300 sedan stands at 16.3 cu ft with the rear seats in place.

Safety Features

The 2022 Chrysler 300 is a big, heavy car, so standard features like rain braking support and traction control are welcome. The cabin incorporates seven airbags, while driver aids range from blind-spot and cross-path detection to hill start assist and electronic roll mitigation. Front and rear parking sensors are standard on L models and it’s possible to start this trim’s engine remotely.

Many safety features which would be standard on comparable (or even lesser) vehicles are only available as options on the 300, including rain-sensitive wipers, lane departure warnings and adaptive cruise control.

Connectivity

An 8.4-inch touchscreen dominates the 300’s dash, powering a six-speaker stereo system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay installed alongside HD and satellite radio. There’s 4G WiFi hotspot capability, but you’ll need Touring L trim to get an Alpine premium sound system, while S ups the six-speaker Alpine setup to nine speakers with a trunk-mounted subwoofer and over 500 watts of power.

2022 Chrysler 300 Touring – MSRP From $35,140

The base 300’s specifications betray its age, sitting on 17-inch aluminum wheels and with manual adjustment for everything from the outside mirrors to the passenger seat. Keyless entry precedes a cabin with dual-zone climate and push-button start, power lumbar adjustment for the cloth driver’s seat, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.

There are no packages on this trim.

2022 Chrysler 300 Touring L – MSRP From $38,340

Distinguished from outside by 20-inch black aluminum wheels and black external detailing, L models also receive turn signals in heated outside mirrors which automatically dim on the driver’s side. There’s power lumbar adjustment on both heated front seats as well.

The $2,395 SafetyTec Plus Group bundles rain-sensitive windshield wipers, automatic high beam control, and adaptive cruise control, alongside forward collision warning systems and advanced brake assistance. The $3,495 Popular Equipment Group brings several features which are standard on S models – a nine-speaker Alpine audio system, a dual-pane panoramic sunroof, and navigation.

There are almost 20 elements in the $2,385 Comfort Group, including a heated steering wheel and second-row seats, automatic leveling for the bi-xenon headlamps, extensive cabin lighting, and memory for the driver’s seat and mirrors.

2022 Chrysler 300 S – MSRP From $43,750

Whether you choose a V6 or V8 engine, S models feel more luxurious than their Touring counterparts. A dual-pane panoramic sunroof illuminates the cabin, which receives a leather-wrapped steering wheel and navigation. The stereo is boosted to a nine-speaker Alpine system with a 506-watt amp, too.

The SafetyTec Plus and Comfort packs are available at reduced cost because some features in the Touring L bundles are standard on S trim. They cost $1,795 and $2,085 respectively, with Comfort additionally bringing ventilated leather-trimmed sports seats.

CarsDirect Tip

Touring models feel sparsely equipped, but whether S trim justifies its premium is a matter of debate. Either way, the SafetyTec Plus Group package’s features really ought to come as standard in this day and age, rather than being exclusively on the options list.

Haven’t I seen you somewhere before? It’s been 18 years since Chrysler launched their new 300C sedan. Since then, there have been various attempts at modernizing this boxy Millennial design, but despite generally wearing well, it’s showing its age compared to rakish rivals. A Bentley-aping grille and bulbous hood still give a good rear-view mirror, even if the overall appearance is of a bygone age; its side profile is particularly dated nowadays.

There’s a more contemporary ambiance once you open those heavy doors, though some of the switchgear still feels like it originated in the early Noughties – and with good reason. Prices have certainly moved with the times; a base model will set you back $33,000, while flagship S models will be nudging $50,000.

An old-fashioned approach to power. While modern rivals eke out every drop of power from increasingly compact engines, the 300 remains resolutely old-school. The 3.6-liter V6 is no shrinking violet, but the 5.7-liter V8 is a different beast entirely. Feeding 363 hp to the rear wheels through an automatic transmission is a recipe that hasn’t changed for decades. It also means disappointing gas mileage, though few people would spend almost $50,000 on a sedan that can hit 60 in less than six seconds and then fret about fuel economy.

Like American sedans of old, the 300 is extremely softly-sprung – some might say wallowy on base models with smaller wheels and tires. It does avoid the crashing or jostling associated with cars designed with one eye on Nürburgring lap times, making the big Chrysler a soothing companion on long drives. It’s not a car that encourages you to drive quickly, but the handling is decent considering how much weight needs to be shifted in the bends.

An equally old-fashioned approach to safety. The 300C’s manufacturing started before Facebook was launched, which gives you an indication of how long this venerable sedan has been around. While its design and performance have aged fairly well, it’s a long way off the pace in terms of safety. Consider the lack of standard crash-avoidance technology, the underwhelming four-star NHTSA rating, and the presence of words like “poor” and “marginal” in IIHS test results.

If you want to maximize safety, you’ll have to raid the options list for things like automatic emergency braking, while base Touring models can’t be specified with adaptive cruise or active lane control even as options. That’s not really good enough here in 2022.

Chrysler 300

Traveling in comfort. Chrysler has proved more adept at modernizing the 300’s interior, and the front seats are a lovely place to sit. There’s good visibility, plenty of seat support with power adjustment for the driver, and an 8.4-inch touchscreen with smartphone mirroring. Rear passengers won’t be as enamored, since there’s a distinct lack of knee room back here, but an impressive 16.3 cu ft of trunk space lies behind them.

As is often the case, higher trims tempt you with electronic goodies. Ventilated Nappa leather seats, real wood trim, and a 506-watt audio system greet buyers of flagship S models, though mid-range Touring L represents a good compromise with its sunroof, navigation, and heated rear seats.

Final thoughts. The 300 is an easy car to reach judgment on. If you want a comfortable freeway cruiser with a well-appointed cabin, plenty of power in reserve, and looks that can intimidate other vehicles out of your way, it’s got you covered. The V8 engine has vast reserves of power, the seats are comfortable, and a 500-watt stereo makes a symphony out of anything from disco to djent metal.

However, the 300 is showing its age in many respects, especially safety. It’s hard to overlook its disappointing official ratings, while the lack of standard safety technology is damning in an age when rivals can pilot themselves on the freeway and automatically stop for pedestrians. The 300’s looks are also starting to age, and it’s impossible to escape the sense that you’re driving a relic rather than a modern vehicle.
