Say Farewell To The Iconic Chrysler 300C

January 5th, 2024 by


After a nearly 20-year run, it is time to say goodbye to the Chrysler 300C. The iconic luxury sedan got its start in 2004 and since then, it has seen numerous updates that have kept the 300C relevant. In the present day, the Chrysler 300C continues to be a popular sedan despite the noticeable differences between more modern models. As a brand, Chrysler is making the transition to EVs, recently hinting at an all-electric sedan. Like many automakers, Chrysler understands that the demand for EVs is increasing and that getting ahead of the competition is a wise move. Although Chrysler will discontinue the Chrysler 300C, the automaker is giving the luxury sedan a proper send-off by giving it one last update. We’ll check out the latest Chrysler 300C and see what consumers can expect. 

The Chrysler 300C, Gone But Not Forgotten 

Chrysler will be discontinuing the Chrysler 300C after nearly 20 years. The luxury sedan has remained relevant over the years thanks to numerous updates and upgrades. While many would love to see the 300C stick around, Chrysler is moving on to EVs. The automaker has teased an all-electric sedan as a replacement for the classic 300C, but would it ever live up to the legacy the 300C created? Perhaps not, but as we move toward a more sustainable future, EVs are becoming the norm. As with any significant change, there will be those who are slow to adapt. Thankfully, those still craving the power and capability of the Chrysler 300C are in luck as Chrysler will be offering 2000 units of a fully upgraded Chrysler 300C. 

As if the 300C couldn’t get any better, Chrysler will be equipping the luxury sedan with a 6.4L Hemi V8 engine capable of 485 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque. This powerful engine comes as part of a final update as Chrysler says farewell to one of its iconic sedans. To accommodate the V8 engine, Chrysler has made upgrades to the 300C’s chassis and drivetrain. There’s also an anti-spin rear differential and a stiffer suspension. Along with the V8 engine, the automaker will also give the Chrysler 300C new styling. Outside, the sedan sees visual enhancements like red brake calipers, black chrome accents, and a large 300C badge on the front grille.

Inside the 300C, the sedan sees new features like black Laguna leather seats with silver contrast stitching on the doors and dashboard. There are also heated and ventilated seats and a panoramic sunroof. For equipment, the luxury sedan features an 8.4-inch infotainment system along with a 19-speaker sound system. As for safety, the 300C sees advanced brake assist, lane departure warnings, blind spot monitoring, and more. While we must say goodbye to one of the most iconic sedans, those lucky enough will have the opportunity to purchase one of the 2000 newly updated Chrysler 300Cs. The updated sedan will be priced at an MSRP of $56,595 (plus destination fee). As part of wishful thinking, with EVs at the forefront, we may see the return of the 300 nameplate. For now, we’ll be staying tuned for more information.
