The Chrysler 300 debuted in 2005, and it rocked the sedan market to the core. Back then, most sedans were known for having front-wheel-drive and smaller engine displacement. But Chrysler 300 broke that norm by driving its rear wheels with its available big V8 engine.
Many years later and the Chrysler 300 is still turning heads. Not much has changed since the 2019 model. However, the 2020 model is offering three new exterior colors, and there’s a new option of a Red S Appearance Package on the 300S. The Red S Appearance Package adds 20-inch black wheels and red and black exterior accents.
The standard engine on most of the Chrysler 300 the trim levels- (Touring, Touring L, S, and Limited), is the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine, which makes 292 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft of torque. It gets a slight boost, up to 300 horsepower and 264 lb-ft on the 300S. Every trim uses an eight-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive, and the V6 models have the option of an all-wheel-drive.
Standard on the 300C (and an option on the S) is a 5.7-liter Hemi V8, which produces 363 horsepower and 394 lb-ft. of torque. The 300C has an eight-speed automatic. The 2019 Chrysler 300 is an excellent choice for those who want to prioritize size, power, comfort, and luxury for a less-than-luxury price in their full-size sedans.
These engines have been in the FCA family for a very long time, and the reasoning behind it is not a mystery; they are both very good powerplants. The V6’s “Pentastar” name is the company name with its historic five-pointed star logo. The V8 “Hemi” has the hemispherical shape of the combustion chambers.
The V6 engine is enough for most drivers. Despite its size, the Pentastar on the 300 gets the vehicle moving with its strong and linear acceleration. The 300S, among the V6-powered trims, includes paddle shifters to be able to shift the gears up and down the gears manually.
The 300S adds a performance-tuned suspension, along with the 20-inch wheels. The steering is responsive, and it’s smooth to drive. When driving around sharper curves, the car doesn’t feel as bulky, which is a plus.
The cabin on the Chrysler 300 is roomy, allowing for passengers to feel comfortable in the rear-seats. The 300S adds LED foglights, and a sport-tuned suspension (RWD only). The Limited adds these plus an auto-dimming driver-side mirror.
The climate controls can be handled with the big dials and buttons, and the Uconnect infotainment system has an 8.4-inch touchscreen, which is still known as one of the best methods in the industry. Standard is the Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility, and there’s also optional satellite radio. Depending on the trim level, adaptive cruise control, a dual-pane sunroof, heated steering wheel, blind-spot monitoring, heated rear seats, and ventilated front seats are standard types of equipment.
In summary, the 2019 Chrysler 300 has a history of being known for its good looks, overall performance, and attractive entry prices. You can search the inventory of Chrysler’s at Miami Lakes Automall.
