Data points Key details of the Chrysler 300

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Powertrain

The 292-horsepower version of the company's Pentastar 3.6-liter V-6 is smooth, strong, and responsive with the eight-speed automatic that's included in most versions.
by The Car Connection (Aug, 2012)
Dual-zone automatic climate control, a power driver's seat and a USB/iPod-compatible stereo are standard.

The eight-speed automatic transmission is standard with the V-6 engine, and leather upholstery and heated front seats are now standard.

Engine

In addition to the 363-horsepower V8 engine, all-wheel drive and navigation system a 2013 Chrysler 300C AWD loaded with all the options will include an impressive list of high-tech luxuries: Radar-based adaptive cruise control and forward collision warning systems up front, rear cross-path sensors out back and blind-spot monitoring to help out on the side.

Hemi-powered models remain all about brawn, but Chrysler 300 models with the V-6 are surprisingly well-rounded performers.
by The Car Connection (Aug, 2012)
With seating for five, the Chrysler 300 offers V-6 or V-8 power, and it's also available in high-performance SRT8 guise.

Kind

The 5.7-liter HEMI V8 has just slightly less horsepower than the Ford SHO's twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V6, but a substantially larger amount of torque.
by KBB (May, 2013)
It's not quite as seamless as in some other big V-8 cars; you definitely know when all the cylinders are not being used.
by cars.com (Sep, 2013)
While the V-6 is smooth and luxury-car-like, the Hemi is more aggressive and muscle-car-like in sound and responsiveness.
by The Car Connection (Aug, 2012)

Handling

The Chrysler 300 is a rear-driver, except when it's not: the HEMI-equipped 300C can be fitted with all-wheel drive, which has an advantageous axle-disconnect system that helps fuel economy and handling when there's no need for all wheels to be engaged in power delivery.
by The Car Connection (Aug, 2012)
It's fitted with 19-inch wheels, which aren't much of an enemy to the 300's ride quality on rear-drive models.
by The Car Connection (Aug, 2012)
If you like thick-rimmed steering wheels, you'll be happy to find in the Chrysler 300 one of the world's thickest.

Performance

On top of all their performance upgrades-like the mammoth 6.4-liter engine, heavy-duty braking, adaptive damping, and 20-inch wheels-SRT8s get carbon-fiber trim; heated and ventilated front seats; and a layer of instrumentation in its navigation system that displays performance stats like acceleration times and lateral grip.
by The Car Connection (Aug, 2012)
It catapults the car from zero to 60 mph in the high 4-second range and propels it to a top speed of 175 mph.
by cars.com (Sep, 2013)
You'll sacrifice some ride comfort and quiet, but the trade-off for the SRT8's blistering performance is something most enthusiasts can accept.
