Reasons Why The 2022 Chrysler 300 Is Truly Irresistible

Super Bowl LVI headliner, Eminem (who collaborated with the brand in 2011) might be excited about new things that the Chrysler company has in store for 2022. The subsidiary of Stellantis will be in similar likeness to that of the 2021 Chrysler 300, but it has a few upgrades up its sleeve.

While many critics have been saying for years that the 300 sedan is a dying vehicle, there are still more than enough buyers that appreciate this one-of-a-kind vehicle. Here are all of the things that Make The 2022 Chrysler 300 Truly Irresistible. 

The Extra Horsepower

Chrysler’s 300 S is undoubtedly the most favored among potential shoppers, particularly due to all of that extra horsepower. Previously producing an already healthy output of 292 horsepower, the 2022 model year has now increased to 300 horses. 

While the 6.4-L Hemi V8 is no longer in service, this full-sized sedan is still the only one in its segment to offer both a V6 and V8 motor. Each model is powered by a 3-6-liter engine, but the S trim has an engine calibration and sport-tuned exhaust, which allows it to get to higher speeds.

Various Trim Levels

Over the years, Chrysler has let go of some popular trims from the 300, but it still offers great variety. It now encompasses models like the Touring, Touring L, S, C, and special SRTs. It is worth noting, however, that the C trim is only accessible in Mexico, while the special SRT is only accessible in Australia and the Middle East.

The current color palette of the 2022 model year includes bright white, gloss black, silver mist, granite crystal, velvet red, and frostbite. The highlighting 300 S is the most flashy with its sportier framework, but the Touring L can still show off with its newly standard Sports package. This bundle includes 20-inch wheels, black exterior badging, a performance front fascia with cool LED fog lamps.

Additionally, all of the latest 300s have a standard rear-wheel-drive (RWD) setup.

Fuel Economy and Drive

While the 2022 Chrysler 300 is indeed energetic, it knows how to conserve its energy, as its ratings come out to 19 mpg for the city and 30 mpg for the highway from its standard 3.6-L engine. It’s no wonder why this engine has won awards in other Stellantis brands like Dodge and Jeep.

The Touring and Touring L trim levels also offer optional all-wheel-drive (AWD), with all models using an 8-speed automatic transmission.

Driving-wise, the 300 S provides the best experience. It’s sharp with its responses and has paddle shifters that allow owners to make their own gear changes (if they desire). The V8 can get to 60 mph in under 6 seconds.

Miami Lakes Chrysler

The 2022 Chrysler 300 has a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $33,545, (plus destination fee) for the base Touring trim. When the time comes to purchase this vehicle, be sure to do it at Miami Lakes Automall. We carry a wide range of vehicles from the brand ranging in various shapes and sizes.

Electrified Chrysler and Jeep Models Are Getting New Wall Chargers

New Wall Chargers

For those who currently own an adventurous Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe or Jeep Wrangler 4xe, or perhaps even a family-oriented Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid, Mopar, the parts and service division of Stellantis, is bringing in a useful piece of new gear that should provide more practicality in the ownership experience. Owners will soon be in possession of a new at-home wall charger that comes either as a plug-in or hardwired version, and supplies 7.7 kW of power.

With these means, a full charge can be provided to Stellantis electrics in just two hours, which is six times faster than its current Level 1, 120-volt charger. Further tacking on suitability, the new Level 2 unit brings along Wi-Fi connectivity which enables owners to keep track and control the charging of their car through a mobile app or web portal.

Energy Star, a program run by the Environmental Protection Agency and U.S. Department of Energy, has certified every new charging unit and has also optimized for a balance between accessibility, effectiveness, and cost. Doing this makes it easier for buyers to reduce their energy consumption and lower their spending by having the option charge at low-rate times. Additionally, this makes a way for them to engage in energy credit programs, if they’re available.

The Mopar division says that the wall charger is portable, lightweight, lockable, and weatherproof, meaning that it’s an ideal piece of equipment for indoors and outdoors. The suggested retail price is $599, and each unit comes with a three-year warranty. One can also order the unit with a Chrysler and Jeep-branded faceplate.

“Our new factory-backed at-home Level 2 plug-in charging units offer a quick, seamless charging solution for Jeep 4xe and Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid owners,” said Mark Bosanac, North America vice president, Mopar Service, Parts & Customer Care. “At Mopar, we’ll continue to enhance the customer experience and expand our electric-vehicle portfolio of accessories.”

Mopar’s new wall charger signifies what we should expect out of the Stellantis Group during this decade, as their products are currently on grease wheels regarding its electrified products. One of these products includes the Chrysler Airflow concept, which is a preview of how the manufacturer is aiming to expand into a principally-electric company by 2028 by exploiting all of the capabilities of the STLA Large electric platform.

Earlier this month we discussed how Chrysler announced its plans to release its first electric model by 2025. So far, the plan is to introduce the Airflow as a crossover that is energized by a dual-motor and has enough battery capacity to get up to 400 miles of range. Outside of that, the car may also have new connectivity features that include an operating system dubbed the STLA Brain, which will make way for over-the-air updates.

Chrysler’s Airflow Concept Is A Showstopper at The 2022 CES

Last week, (January 5th), the Chrysler brand revealed Airflow Concept at the 2022 CES (Consumer Electronics Show). Their, attendees were able to get up close and personal with the EV, along with new and innovative drive-system technologies, connectivity and advanced mobility features, and an overall stellar design that will serve as the map for Chrysler’s future.

The automaker also announced that the company’s revamp will involve the launch of its first battery-electric vehicle (BEV) by 2025 and a future fully-electric vehicle lineup.

“The Chrysler Airflow Concept represents the future direction of the Chrysler brand, providing a peek at the dynamic design, advanced technologies and seamless connectivity that will characterize the full-electric portfolio we plan to reach by 2028,” said Chris Feuell, Chrysler brand CEO – Stellantis. “Chrysler is an iconic American automotive brand, with a heritage in creating new advanced technologies and product segments. Our brand will serve at the forefront as Stellantis transforms to deliver clean mobility and connected customer experiences.”

The Airflow Concept also represents the introduction to the brand’s STLA Brain platform and STLA Smart Cockpit, which is made to bring the driver’s digital lifestyle into the vehicle, using progressive technology to create a personalized experience for each occupant.

“The Chrysler Airflow Concept represents the start of the brand’s journey toward a fully electrified future. It is the result of a thoughtful synthesis of the full arsenal of Stellantis’ connected vehicle technology – inside and out,” said Ralph Gilles, chief design officer – Stellantis. “The design features a decisively elegant aerodynamic exterior and a modern, sophisticated interior that takes the customer on a new level of digital delight.”

STLA Platforms

The STLA Brain and STLA SmartCockpit allows for a user experience that is always technologically smart, instinctive, and fresh. The interior involves multi-layered, high-contrast graphics and precise details to provide an opulent and clean appearance, as well as a user-friendly experience.

The menu-based layout enables screens throughout the vehicle to be customized and grouped developed upon individual preferences. Information on the screens can also be shared with other passengers with a simple swipe. 

With each screen comes personalized access to the digital world through connected entertainment, apps, and downloads. Each seat also comes with a built-in camera, which means that occupants can participate in a group video conference call if they need to or desire.

Over-the-air (OTA) updates to ensure that in-car services remain current and allow passengers to easily tack on new features. This way the vehicle technological system remains relevant and capable, which constantly improves the ownership experience. 

The backbone of the Airflow is the STLA Brain. This electronic setup makes way for software developers to create and update features and services quickly, seizing the opportunity to use the capabilities in the cabin without having to wait for a new hardware launch.

Then, the STLA SmartCock pit, made on top of the STLA Brain architecture, easily integrates with the digital lives of the occupants to provide AI-derived applications, like navigation, voice assistance, e-commerce marketplace and payment services.

Electric and Connected

In the same way that the Chrysler company is committed to delivering a highly capable user experience, the brand is just as committed to its promise to transition to a fully electric vehicle lineup by 2028, particularly via a clean manufacturing process and constructed with recyclable and renewable materials. 

The Airflow Concept is also made with STLA AutoDrive, which provides Level 3  autonomous driving capabilities and will use OTA updates for ultimate effectiveness.

Furthermore, the concept has all-wheel-drive (AWD) capability and gets its power from two 150 kW electric drive motors (EDMs), one located in the front and the other in the rear. The car is designed to make room for larger capacity EDMs, ensuring the potential for future high-performance implementations. The battery is ultimately designed to procure a 350- and 400-mile range on a single charge.

Miami Lakes Chrysler

We might have a bit of a wait when it comes to Chrysler’s Airflow concept, but there are still some eco-friendly options from the brand, specifically with the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid. This plug-in minivan has many useful and entertainment features such as the Stow’n Go seats, Amazon Fire TV, Uconnect Theater, and much more!

The Chrysler Airflow Concept Is Leading Us 400 Miles Away

Chrysler Airflow

The Chrysler company is planning on using the 2022 Consumer Electronics Show, located in Las Vegas on Wednesday (January, 5th), to announce its plans to release its first electric model by 2025, and with the intention of eventually having a full-on electric lineup by 2028.

Foretasting just what the electric future looks like with Chrysler, the brand will introduce its Airflow Concept, an electric crossover powered by a dual-motor and enough battery capacity to get up to 400 miles of range.

Outside of the powertrain, the Airflow may also have new connectivity features that we should potentially see in Chrysler vehicles sooner rather than later. These features include an operating system dubbed the STLA Brain, which will make way for over-the-air updates.

Additionally, there is an interface called the STLA SmartCockpit, which encompasses touchscreen displays for the instrument cluster, central infotainment hub, and one reserved for the front seat passenger. The automaker said that its concept also has a camera facing each seat, allowing occupants to engage in a video conference call if they’d like.

STLA AutoDrive is the third future tech preview, this is considered to be the branding for future driving-assist features of Stellantis, which will eventually include self-driving systems. It is said that the Airflow will be geared with a self-driving system rated at Level 3 on the SAE scale of self-driving capability. While it wasn’t mentioned as to what situations that the concept can hold its own in, the Level 3 rating signifies that, in certain situations, the Airflow can handle itself, however, the driver should be ready to take back control at any time.

Avid fans of the company may be well aware that the Airflow nameplate dates back to 1934. The original Airflow model was actually a family of models, and it was the first production car made for low aerodynamic drag by the use of a wind tunnel. This feature gave the car a unique streamlined design, which proved not to be agreeable with the tastes of the majority of buyers at the time. While the car company soon made design adjustments, it dropped the Airflow altogether after 1937.

The original Airflow was certainly a flop, but its weight on aerodynamics, along with its all-steel setup, set the mood for future models. Considering the significance of a low drag coefficient for optimizing efficiency and range, the revived nameplate seems best suited for the all-new EV.

While Chrysler hasn’t revealed much in terms of specifics regarding its new plans, it is known that the manufacturer has access to a total of four platforms for electrics being made by its parent company, Stellantis. The platforms will have up to 500 miles of range and provide up to 4.3 kWh/mile efficiency in some models, as said by Stellantis.

The parent company has also signed a memorandum of understanding with LG Energy Solution for anticipated battery supply in the U.S., and is also backing solid-state battery developer, Factorial.

However, Stellantis CEO, Carlos Tavares has said that the additional cost of constructing electrics is “beyond the limits” for what the industry can sustain.

For the time being, the only plug-in vehicle that is currently available is the Pacifica Hybrid minivan. Other available models are the traditional gasoline-powered Pacifica and the 300 sedan.

Although we may have to wait a while for Chrysler’s new electric concept, you’ll never have to wait for anything at Miami Lakes Chrysler. We sell a superb bundle of vehicles from the brand that range in various shapes and prices, such as with their Pacifica Hybrid minivan or full-size 300 sedan.

Chrysler’s Airflow EV Is More Than Just A Concept

Chrysler Airflow EV Concept

At long last! Chrysler revealed its first new models in several years, and it appears to be in the form of an electric crossover. More specifically, a crossover that could potentially flaunt the classic Airflow nameplate. This new car was first shown during parent company Stellantis’ EV Day event at the beginning of this year. Now, more information has been revealed regarding this concept piece, which is supposed to display new technology, which encompass electric platforms, driver-assistance features, and infotainment software.

On Software Day, CEO of Stellantis, Carlos Tavares said during the company’s presentation that its “more than a pure concept” and suggested that this car could arrive in production by 2024, backed by North American trademarks for the Airflow name, which was filed in 2019 and again this year (2021).

It isn’t an accident that Chryler’s new model nearly mirrors the shape and proportions of Ford’s Mustang Mach-E. Car and Driver’s winner of EV of the Year is already seeing success in sales in the car market. Although we don’t know the precise size of the Airflow, it seems highly probable that it will serve as a competitor for the Mach-E and other electric compact crossovers like Tesla’s Model Y and Volkswagen’s ID.4.

Stellantis has already announced their intentions to build four new EV platforms, which encompass: STLA Small, STLA Medium, STLA Large, and STLA Frame. It’s quite possible that the Airflow would end up on STLA Medium. According to previous statements Stellantis has made about its new electric models, this means that it could reach a driving range of up to 440 miles and use electric motors that produce between 167 and 241 horsepower. It’s also likely that there will be an all-wheel-drive (AWD) dual-motor option.

Inward, the Airflow features an exciting bundle of screens, starting with a large central infotainment display that’s sandwiched between separate screens for the driver and passenger. There are also entertainment screens for the rear seats. Connectivity features will presumably involve over-the-air updates and vehicle-to-vehicle communication.

Although the timeline of the production of Chrysler’s Airflow certainly isn’t concrete, we can deduce from the fact that it has side marker lights and exterior mirrors that it will arrive in showrooms a bit sooner than we might expect. Stellantis is aiming at 2024 for its new platforms, so it’s plausible that this Chrysler model will make its way to North America by 2025.

Although we may have to wait a while for Chrysler’s new electric concept, you’ll never have to wait for anything at Miami Lakes Chrysler.

The IIHS Honors The 2021 Chrysler Pacifica With Its TOP SAFETY PICK+

Once again, the 2021 Chrysler Pacifica shows why it’s THE family minivan as the IIHS (Insurance Institute of Highway Safety) gave the vehicle the TOP SAFETY PICK+.

Vehicles that are given the IIHS rating are those built after September 2021, following an improvement with the headlamp performance and the adding of the standard Pedestrian Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB).

“Winning the highest IIHS safety rating of TSP+ distinguishes the Chrysler Pacifica’s superior safety technology and performance,” said Chrysler Brand CEO Chris Feuell. “Pacifica is the perfect choice for modern families who are looking for a minivan with the greatest combination of safety, functionality and value.”

The Pacifica received a “good” grade, which is the highest possible rating within the six main crashworthiness tests conducted by the  IIHS:

  • Small overlap front (on the driver side)
  • Small overlap front (on the passenger side)
  • Moderate overlap, front
  • Side impact
  • Roof strength
  • Head restraints and seats

Standard equipment in the Pacifica includes the AEB (automatic emergency brakings) system, which earned a “superior” rating, the highest possible from the IIHS grading system. It includes a new assortment of camera equipment and radar sensors that provide a wider field of view than the former system.

Fusing the two methods of object detection allows for redundancy, which promotes system performance.

The AEB system, which is prominent across the Stellantis project lineup as a standard interior feature, identifies when particular frontal collisions may be looming. If sensors pick up these conditions, this will enable visual and audible alerts, and should the driver fail to respond, the system may enable the vehicle’s brakes to aid in avoiding an impact or decrease its severity.

The Chrysler Pacifica’s Pedestrian AEB system also received an “advanced” rating.

This year’s Chrysler Pacifica is the only minivan in North America with second-row Stow ’n Go seating, which has the advantage of folding into the floor along with AWD (all-wheel-drive).

The minivan’s AWD technology seamlessly engages no matter the speed, and without any action needed by the driver. Should any of the wheels experience a loss in traction, the system will automatically transfer the available engine torque to the wheels with more traction for increased control.

The same rings true for the Pacifica Hybrid, a plug-in electric vehicle (PHEV).

The 2021 Chrysler Pacifica has earned about 160 industry honors and accolades, making the car industry’s most awarded vehicle in its segment over the last five years.

Miami Lakes Chrysler

If you’re looking for a last minute sale, the 2021 Chrysler Pacifica is certainly worth the investment. This vehicle has great driving manners, a user-friendly infotainment system, room for up to seven or eight people, and a high-class design layout on the exterior and interior.

The Pacifica Hybrid also is a great choice for those who prioritize saving on gas, it also transitions well when switching from the electric motor to the gasoline engine.

The Chrysler Pacifica and Grand Cherokee L Connect With U As They Win Wards 10 Best User Experience List

Publication site Wards honored the Chrysler Pacifica and the all-new Jeep Grand Cherokee L by putting them on their 2021 Wards 10 Best User Experience List. Both Stellantis vehicles are geared with the brand’s Uconnect 5 infotainment system, which has better connectivity, richer content and an improved customization experience.

“Uconnect 5 is designed to be the most advanced in-car technology we have ever produced, and we’re honored that Wards has selected the system for two spots on their 10 Best User Experience list,” said Mamatha Chamarthi, Head of Software Business and Product Management. “We are dedicated to providing all occupants with greater connectivity, easy-to-use content and innovative features to seamlessly elevate the automobile to a third living space.”

In order to help with the selection process, editors of Wards determined the comprehensive user experience of 25 vehicles, grading them on factors like practicality, infotainment features, sound systems, vehicle connectivity, driver assistance technology, information/displays, system compatibility, voice control, materials and overall value.

“Minivans have always delivered a unique user experience and the refreshed 2021 Chrysler Pacifica Pinnacle is everything we could want in a minivan,” said Christie Schweinsberg, Wards Intelligence Principal Analyst. “It has the right mix of physical switchgear and an easy-to-navigate touchscreen. Voice commands work well, smartphone pairing is lightning fast and this minivan offers virtually every advanced driver-assist technology you could ever want, including standard, stop-and-go adaptive cruise control.

“We love the FamCam, a ceiling-mounted camera above the second row that helps parents answer that most elusive question: Who touched whom first? This is a rolling high-tech living room,” she added.

The Pacifica minivan also encompasses a 10.1-inch touchscreen, the largest in its class, along with (first in its segment) USB Type C ports that make way for devices to charge up to four times faster than standard ones. The vehicle also has an available class-exclusive Uconnect Theater system that comes with built-in games and apps.

Also carrying the automaker’s most up-to-date interior gadgets is the latest Jeep Grand Cherokee L. In this truck, you’ll get faster operating speeds, new content and improved personalization.

Exciting Updates For The 2022 Chrysler Pacifica

2022 Chrysler Pacifica and Its Updates

For the last few months, there have been some issues regarding the production of the Chrysler Pacifica minivan, such as a full pause of its construction for almost the whole month of June. At the same time, there was a temporary shut down, in early September, due to the chip shortage, but demand for this vehicle remained strong. This time around, the Pacifica is back to take over 2022, and it’s bringing along some advancements as well as key additions to the North American lineup.

The Pacifica’s range-topping Limited and Pinnacle models will now be had with front-wheel-drive (FWD) as a standard, while the all-wheel-drive (AWD) will be an option. This change makes the most sense seeing that many customers living in warmer climates don’t need the extra grip of the minivan’s AWD. In turn, this signifies that the new FWD options will encompass more rich technologies or equipment on slightly cheaper models.

According to the car blog, MoparInsiders, the 2022 Pacifica Limited models will start at $48,320 (plus destination fee) for FWDs. Those who want the optional AWD system need to pay an extra $1,675, which would bring the price to $50,915 (plus destination fee). Then, the highest-ranking Pacifica Pinnacle trim will have a starting price of $52,775 (plus destination fee) for its FWD model, while its optional AWD version will cost $55,370 (plus destination fee).

At the same time, the base-level Touring trim will no longer have available AWD for the upcoming model year. It does not matter much because only 2 percent of the Pacifica’s customers opted for the Touring AWD the previous year, which led the carmaker to make the Touring lineup more straightforward for the 2022 model year. On the other hand, the Touring L will continue to serve options for FWD and AWD configurations.

Essentially, the Pacifica range as a whole will get some advancement for the 2022 model year, including the Cold Weather Group, which was previously optional for $495, but now serves as a standard. This implies that every new 2022 Pacifica model will be geared from the car plant with heated front seats and a heated steering wheel. Otherwise, the base Touring and Touring L trims will come with a rear-seat reminder system in the lineup. At the same time, the Limited model will obtain the previously optional Premium and Safety Sphere Group, which will be standard. The top-tier Pacifica Pinnacle will also have the additional benefit having of the Clean Air Filtration System, which is also standard.

We sell different models at various trims and prices. Those interested in purchasing the 2022 Chrysler Pacifica can view our online new car inventory.

Chrysler Brings Amazon Fire TV and Other Excitements To Its 2022 Lineup

The Chrysler company is showing 2022 what it’s made of with a slew of updates all throughout its lineup.

To begin with, their classic 300 luxury sedan will be geared with a new air filtration system that will supposedly sift out 95% of particulates. This technology should help lessen the amount of dust, smoke, and aerosols within the interior.

Other changes are quite minimal, however, the Touring L trim tacks on the freshly standard Sport Appearance package, which involves a more athletic-looking front fascia, LED fog lights and Black Noise accents. This mid-level model also brings along 20-inch wheels with a Black Noise finish.

At the same time, the highest-ranking 300S receives more standard technologies, some of which encompass GPS navigation, a panoramic sunroof, and a nine-speaker deluxe audio system with trunk-installed subwoofer.

Even though the newest 300 holds on to its “vintage” Uconnect 4C infotainment system, the brand’s 200 Voyager minivan (newly transitioned fleet vehicle) adds a new and improved Uconnect 5 infotainment system matched with a 7-inch display. It flaunts its augmented processing power, added personalization, and updated interface. Other spotlighting gadgets involve voice recognition technology, over-the-air updates, and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

In addition to the new infotainment system, the Voyager lets go of its base-level L trim and now has standard power sliding doors, a power liftgate and second-row Stow ‘n Go seats. It even includes a new air filtration system, a reworked color scheme, and heated front seats and a heated steering wheel.

Potential buyers also have the option to select a new Safety and Premium Group, which merges river assistance systems with a larger 10.1-inch infotainment system featuring GPS navigation and SiriusXM 360L. This package also involves blind-spot monitoring, rear park assist, rear cross path detection, and full-speed forward collision warning-plus with pedestrian automatic emergency braking.

Speaking of minivans, the award-winning Pacifica, includes more comprehensive updates for its 2022 model year. One of the main features is its available rear seat entertainment system which has Amazon Fire TV. This technology comes with Alexa voice remotes and two 10.1-inch displays, which allows passengers to steam and watch videos from a 4G Wi-Fi hotspot. There is also 16 GB built-in, which means those aboard won’t even have to worry about using their data while road tripping.

This family car also comes with surplus standard gear involving a rear seat reminder and the previously mentioned air filtration technology. There is even a new Silver Mist color for the exterior and developed messaging for the Hybrid variant.

Moreover, the base Pacifica Touring now includes standard heated front seats and a heated steering wheel. Moving above to the Touring L will award you with extra safety features like front park assist, parallel/perpendicular park assist and a 360° surround-view monitor. Then, the Limited trim comes with the earlier mentioned safety features along with a Harmon Kardon premium audio system.
