2016 Chrysler 300Tue, 09/01/2015 - 14:56
Chrysler’s refreshing new take on the Chrysler 300 is aimed at dynamic drivers who are looking for an exceptional vehicle. It offers improved fuel economy and engine power as well as a more comfortable interior, making it a worthy competitor in Mexico’s increasingly quality-driven market.
True to 60 years of iconic style, the 2016 Chrysler 300’s artisanal interior quality, furnished with new leather designs, as standard, adds a touch of refinement to the cabin. Heated multi-axis adjustable seats also extend to lumbar support that can be adjusted for further comfort.
The leather-wrapped, three-spoke steering wheel is reminiscent of classic cars, and couples with the 7-inch, dashboard-integrated display to offer the driver the best of both worlds. Navigation, real-time vehicle performance, and wireless cellphone connectivity provides ample information about the car and can almost entirely be controlled with voice commands. Keyless technology enhances the hands-free experience, while the Premium Harman Kardon sound system with 18 speakers and a booming subwoofer envelops the passengers with a real depth of sound.
The 8-speed automatic transmission is managed with a smooth rotating gear shift, which creates a more spacious central space through the elimination of the gear stick. This does not detract from the 292hp 3.6l V6 motor, or the more powerful 5.7l V8 version, which will see an increase to best-in-class 370hp, available on the rear-wheel-drive versions of the Chrysler 300S, 300C and 300C Platinum. This car also boasts a suite of more than 80 characteristics to improve safety, giving buyers the option of two SafetyTec features, including a high-resolution rear view camera with parking assist, blind spot monitoring, rear cross path detection, full-speed forward collision warning with active braking, lane departure warning, advanced brake assist, and rain-sensing windshield wipers, to name just a few.
The sedan sits between luxurious and muscular, maintaining a loyal following through its signature oldschool craftsmanship paired with clever technology, aesthetics, and design harmony. This bold machine balances substance with style and is set to appeal to a wide range of drivers with a taste for quality.
