A Deeper Dive Into The 2022 Chrysler 300

The Chrysler 300 sedan remains to be a freak of nature in the world of sedans, as its highlighting optional V8 engine is something that most large cars don’t have. You can prepare to be astounded by its exhilarating acceleration and captivating drive, while it somehow manages to achieve 25 mpg on the highway.

This time around, we’re paying attention to more internal elements, such as its interior style and upscale features. Let’s Dive Deeper Into The 2022 Chrysler 300.

Design

The Chrysler 300 remains cool and collected for 2022, and retains that modish muscular style that its fans love. It draws your attention with its intense and domineering gaze, and it keeps your focus with cool exterior elements on the 300S models, such as blacked-out features, and the standard Red S Appearance Package. The base 300 Touring model has a Chrome Appearance package that provides a more polished look such as 20-inch alloy wheels, chrome-finished side mirror housings/window trim, and a platinum type of grille and surround. At the same time, the Sport Appearance package coats all of these elements black.

Color options for this model year also amount to Bright White, Frostbite, Gloss Black, Granite Crystal, Silver Mist, and Velvet Red.

Looking on the inside, you’ll see that Chrysler isn’t too shy when it comes to showing off. One of the ways it does this is by its large trunk, specifically sized at 16 cubic feet. Moving towards the front, the dashboard and seats appear to have been suited up with high-end and ritzy materials. Additional elements such as an analog clock, rotary gear selector, and a 7-inch instrument cluster reinforces the cabin’s already posh look.

Interior colors remain simple, with Black or Black with Linen.

Convenience

There’s much more fun in store with these top-grade comfort features. The 300 sedan has a long list of in-car excitements, with many of them standard, like keyless entry/ignition, dual-zone automatic climate control, a new N95 cabin air filter, self-dimming rearview mirror, LED lighting for the front cup holders, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and an 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat.

It also comes with an 8.4-inch touchscreen for an infotainment stream that involves Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone integration, satellite radio, voice control, two USB ports, Bluetooth, and a 6-speaker audio system. 

The 300 Touring L model then adds on LED fog lights, remote start, heated front seats, Nappa leather seating surfaces, 8-way power-adjustable front passenger seat, front/rear parking sensors, and a blind-spot monitoring system. The 300S also tacks on a sporty suspension, a Sport driving mode, 20-inch alloy wheels, paddle shifters mounted beneath the steering wheel, sporty front seats, and a 276-watt/6-speaker audio setup. 

On top of all of this, there is a Comfort package, specifically available for the Touring L and 300S. It comes with ventilated front seats, adaptive/self-leveling headlights, a heated steering wheel, heated rear seats, an upgraded alarm system upgrade, a power-adjustable steering column with memory (only for the 300S), and a driver’s-side mirror that automatically when the gear is in reverse.

Safety Features

Chrysler doesn’t forget about safety. Buyers can relax knowing that the 300 car has a four-star crash-test rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). It also has available safety features that consist of automated emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and lane-keeping assist.

The Fully Electric Chrysler Pacifica Will Be Front And Center Of The Upcoming EV Lineup

The Chrysler brand is expanding its portfolio from its current two models (the 300 sedan and Pacifica minivan) to at least three. We should expect this to happen at the same time the company transitions into a fully electric car manufacturer from 2025-2028.

These models will have new nameplates and body styles, with the addition of a crossover developed upon the Chrysler Airflow concept. At the same time, one model that is supposed to stay true to its roots is the Pacifica. When the company becomes fully electrified, this minivan will continue to act as the commander and chief of the lineup.

“Since we reinvented and established the minivan category 40 years ago, we will keep it,” Chrysler Brand CEO Christine Feuell tells MotorTrend in an interview. But it will be re-conceptualized. “Our aspiration is not to just tweak the existing Pacifica and put a battery pack in it. We created the segment. We want to recreate the segment with a new offering that is more modern, certainly electrified, and gives those customers the best combination of interior comfort and versatility as well as the connected technology to make their riding and driving experience best in class.”

Sliding Doors Are A Must-Have

The electric minivan will keep its sliding doors and implement new features like the temperature-controlled frunk (trunk in the front) to store your groceries.

“I don’t see sliding doors going away,” Feuell says. Indeed these doors are one of the main selling points of the Pacifica, as they are quite practical and make it easier to enter and exit the vehicle. Even SUVs offer conventionally hinged doors for those who want them.

Storage space and its artful placement are a must-have for family vehicles, and going electric creates the opportunity for spaces that previously weren’t even possible. We are rethinking frunk ingenuity and what can we do with that space to optimize both storage and functionality,” Feuell says. While some EVs are using the space once occupied by an engine to house electronics or other components, Chrysler will keep it open. “Our intention is to make it a useful, functional space people can use.” Feuell thinks of it as a surprise and delight feature, even more so with aerodynamic, fastback designs on electric vehicles which lessen space in the rear and have personal items exposed with no cover. “The frunk becomes this secure, lockable storage area where you can put your valuables. We are looking at temperature-control options if people want to store food or groceries while shopping around.”

As for the design, one should be on the lookout for the design language and tech features from the Airflow concept to make its way to the new group of EVs. The Airflow was shown as a sleek and posh crossover with 22-inch wheels, a panoramic roof, and a roomy interior with lines that go through the cockpit and persist down the body sides. This concept also has two electric motors and plenty of gadgetry including the STLA SmartCockpit to make it an overall well-connected vehicle. “You’re definitely seeing more harmony and family lineage in the design language and technology integration from vehicle to vehicle of the Chrysler brand,” the CEO says.

The Pacifica Keeps Its Name

One should also expect the Pacifica moniker to stay. “The Pacifica name carries a lot of value,” Feuell says. “At this point I don’t see a need to change that name with the evolution of a redefined minivan.”

“We are putting PHEV front and center in our marketing message now,” Feuell says, talking up the fact the Pacifica plug-in hybrid minivan has more than 30 miles of electric range, over 50 miles of the average range, and surpasses 500 miles of total range.

Minivan Manufacturing Plans

At the current moment, the Chrysler Pacifica is made in Windsor, Ontario. Before the recent inception of Jeep 4xe plug-ins, it was the only electric vehicle that was available in North America from the parent company, Stellantis.

It is expected that the Windsor plant will also make the fully electric Pacifica model when it’s time. This calculator is further enforced by Stellantis’s decision to back $4.1 billion in a joint venture battery cell plant with LG Energy Solution in Windsor. It’s also expected that a second EV will be added to the Windsor plant, specifically in 2024 when the battery plant is in working order.

Feuell, however, has not confirmed manufacturing plans for the Pacifica but does say that many plants will need to be retooled to make EVs as each of the 14 brands under Stellantis migrate to an electric vehicle lineup. Either way, there are definitely secure plans in the works for the Windsor plant, along with its number of vehicle options.

Miami Lakes Chrysler

It will take a few years for a fully revamped Chrysler lineup, but that doesn’t mean that you have to wait to experience the electrification that they have in store. Miami Lakes Automall carries a wide range of brands, including the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid. This minivan carries nearly all of the gadgets and gizmos found on its gasoline-powered counterpart, and has great fuel economy figures.

The 20220 Chrysler 300: Drive In Style

The 2022 Chrysler 300 sedan remains a force to be reckoned with in the world of sedans, as it offers something that most large sedans don’t have, an optional V8 engine. This model delivers mind-bending acceleration and thrill and still manages to achieve 25 mpg on the highway. 

For 2022, it’s proving that it’s still got it with highlighting features like ample cabin space, an ingenious infotainment system, and an available all-wheel-drive (AWD) system. The AWD in combination with the 300s powerful engines nearly guarantees to create a drive that is worth your while.

Engine

The base 3.6-liter V6 engine for the 2022 300 is highly lauded and has even won some awards for its performance. On the Touring and Touring L trims, it has an output of 292 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque, it then develops into 300 horses and 264 lb-ft of torque on the 300S; The ample torque power is responsible for the overall efficiency of merging and passing.

Then, we have the glorious 5.7-liter Hemi V8 strutting its stuff with a forceful output of 363 horsepower and 394 lb-ft of torque, which can be had on the 300 S. This animal is matched with a rear-wheel-drive (RWD) system, and unlike the Touring and Touring L models, it does not have available all-wheel-drive (RWD). The V8 uses an 8-speed automatic, and even allows enthusiasts to take advantage of the manual shift. While both engines work in tandem with regular unleaded fuel, it’s recommended to use Premium for the V8.

Exterior and Interior Features

The Chrysler 300 is cool for 2022, as remains classy and fresh that familiar muscular style that we all know and love. The intense and domineering look is what draws and keeps you in, with further excitement stemming from the 300S models, blacked-out features, and standard Red S Appearance Package. The base Touring model offers a Chrome Appearance package that brings on glossy exterior elements like 20-inch polished alloy wheels, chrome-finished side mirror housings/window trim, and a platinum type of grille and surround. Meanwhile, the Sport Appearance package paints all of these elements black.

The color palette for this model year includes Bright White, Frostbite, Gloss Black, Granite Crystal, Silver Mist, and Velvet Red.

Inward, it’s obvious that Chrysler isn’t coy when it comes to its styling. One can tell from its large trunk that it belongs to a full-sized sedan, as it is sized at 16-cubic-feet. In the front, the dashboard and seats look like they’ve been outfitted with high-class materials. Other elements like the analog clock, rotary gear selector, and a 7-inch instrument cluster add to the cabin’s premium look.

Interior colors include Black or Black with Linen.

Convenience and Safety

Still not convinced? We’ll, you sure will be with the bucket-load of the convenience features that the 2022 300 has to offer. Standard comforts include keyless entry/ignition, dual-zone automatic climate control, a new N95 cabin air filter, self-dimming rearview mirror, LED lighting for the front cup holders, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and an 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat. It also has an 8.4-inch touchscreen for an infotainment stream that consists of Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone integration, satellite radio, voice control, two USB ports, Bluetooth, and a 6-speaker audio system. 

The Touring L trim then tacks LED fog lights, remote start, heated front seats, Nappa leather seating surfaces, 8-way power-adjustable front passenger seat, front/rear parking sensors, blind-spot monitoring. Then, the athletic 300S adds on a sport suspension, a Sport driving mode, 20-inch alloy wheels, paddle shifters mounted beneath the steering wheel, sport front seats, and a 276-watt/6-speaker audio setup. 

Buyers will also find comfort in knowing that the 300 earned a four-star crash-test rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Available safety features include automated emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and lane-keeping assist.

The 2022 Chrysler 300 Trim By Trim

The 2022 Chrysler 300 is the American standard of what a luxury sedan should look and act like. It’s currently available in a 300 Touring, 300 Touring L, and fast-paced 300S. Choosing between these all depends on one budget and particular preferences, here are some elements to consider.

2022 Chrysler 300 Touring

MSRP at $35,140

The 300 Touring is the entry-level model of the 300 lineup. It comes with the famous and trustworthy 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine, with a stellar output of 292 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. The motor is also paired to an 8-speed automatic transmission, which according to Consumer Reports, allows for faster acceleration. On top of this, the Touring model amounts to a suitable 22 mpg combined.

This big brute also comes with an expansive interior and comfortable seating. The interior also features an easy-to-use Uconnect 4C with an 8.4-inch touchscreen and backup camera. Users will find that the Uconnect is highly intelligent and compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. 

2022 Chrysler Touring L 

MSRP at $38,340

The 300 Touring L is a bit of an upgrade from the base Touring, as it consists of plushy leather upholstery, heated seats, and a set of glossy 18-inch wheels. It is worth noting, however, that there is no optional V8 for the Touring L as it also journeys with the Pentastar V6 and 8-speed automatic transmission. The all-wheel-drive (AWD) system also serves as an option for Touring L and Touring trims, which consumers living in states with harsh winter conditions will appreciate.

2022 Chrysler 300S

MSRP at $43,750

The 300 S sedan is the highest and finest trim of them all. It gives its buyers the option to pick between the 3.6L V6 and the mighty 363 horsepower V8 engine. Along with the extra comfort of this model, the 300S has upgrades that are aesthetically pleasing, such as a unique grille design and wheels.

The V6 vs. The V8?

The Chrysler 300 is quite comfortable for all five of its occupants. The 300S can be had with the optional V8 engine. In comparison, the V6 accelerates the 300 to 60 mph in just 6.3 seconds, while the V8 equipped 300S will zoom out in 5.3 seconds. One should know that V8 buyers will end up trading fuel economy for horsepower, as the V8 requires a lot more energy than the Pentastar.

The V8 motor is also matched with an 8-speed automatic transmission, perfect for making smooth shifts and cruising along the freeway. Along with its high-life performance, the engineers have tuned its suspension into one made for a race car driver. The 300S also has a sport mode with paddle shifters further supporting that added athleticism.
