Chrysler 300 Ups Its Game With New Package Options

Fiat Chrysler aims to keep its 300 model in the limelight by providing new color, price and package options. Since sales for this Chrysler vehicle have bottomed out at 29,213 U.S. deliveries in the last year, some critics are saying that its time to put the model into retirement. In spite of this, Chrysler is sending a message that there’s still some fight left in the ol’roaster and apparently thinks that its disappointing loss isn’t a good enough reason for the automaker to abolish the age-old tradition of trying to entice a few more customers with new upholstery and different badging styles; both of which will be available for purchase this year, along with the required paint updates.

Chrysler’s sedan also sees price increases nearly widespread. Some will barely notice the difference in most rear-drive trims, while all-wheel-drive models add on an additional $250-370 against last year’s pricing. 

For those looking for the biggest discounts, it may help in trying to find holdovers from the 2019 model year.

It was reported by Mopar Insiders about Chrysler’s new Sport Appearance Package, and since then, it has emerged on the brand’s website for an added $1,495. It includes the black 300S grille, 20×8-inch Black Noise Aluminum Wheels black headlamp bezels, darker badging and some black intensification on the exterior. If you don’t like black, there is a similarly priced chrome appearance package that is the polar opposite.

Furthermore, the 300 model is supposed to get a Red S Appearance Package that accessorizes with all the darkened bits from the Sport Appearance Pack (with a red insert on the Chrysler logo) and makes way for an exceptional Red Radar interior. It has not yet been established on Chrysler’s website yet, which indicates that the company may be saving it for later in the year when the rest of the new paint colors are released.

The color Frostbite, which is already offered on Dodge’s Challenger and Charger, has been included in the 300’s central lineup of colors for this year. It is an attractive, teal Sapphire type of shade, which is available now, but it doesn’t come at a premium. It will be succeeded by colors (later in availability) Amethyst and Canyon Sunset, which both aid in giving the model a paint listing that brings the nostalgia of the late 1990s. Maximum Steel and Ceramic Metallic will both be done away for this year, but you can still get the 300 in Silver Mist and Granite Crystal Metallic. According to Mopar Insiders, the new red interior will be congruent with all paint options with the exception of Frostbite and cost has an added price of $300. 

Surprisingly, the FCA has already shown photos of the new content, so now it’s certain its in the works. If you’re set on getting the Red S Appearance Package you should check with your dealer. The price for the 2020 Chrysler model has a starting price of $29,590, (plus destination fee) with the finest-trimmed 300 C entering at $41,995 (not including options).

Why The 2021 Pacifica Crushes Its Competitors


So many great three-row minivans and so little time. With a plethora of options on the market, its often hard to choose, particularly with that of the upcoming 2021 Chrysler Pacifica, which made its debut at the 2020 Chicago Auto Show, last month. As per usual this year’s Honda Odyssey and Toyota Sienna thought that they could upstage the Queen and made quite a spectacle, but in the end, this magnificent minivan made both of those lesser vans beg for mercy.

The upcoming Chrysler minivan made use of the opportunity to show off its advanced technology, rear-seat entertainment systems and second-row seating. It has always been a show-stopper since its 2017 debut when it was named Best of 2017 award winner by Cars.com and since then has gained some noteworthy enhancements for next year including new standard features, a new multimedia system and an available all-wheel-drive as well as front and rear styling.

Here are just a few reasons of how the 2021 Chrysler Pacifica stands out among its competition!

Multimedia System

One of the best features of the new Pacifica is its latest Unconnect 5 multimedia system, the newest version of Chrysler’s exciting advanced-tech lineup. The Unconnect 5 is standard in this model and comes with a 10.1-inch touchscreen with clear and distinctive graphics, dual phone pairing over Bluetooth, and wireless Apple CarPlay and Andriod Auto. This incredibly modern system runs on technology from Andriod but has a familiar Unconnect version that has been updated and is very user-friendly.

In the meantime, tweedle-dee and tweedle-loser, otherwise known as the Odyssey and Sienna have a smaller 8 inch and 7-inch touchscreen, successively, with interfaces that are less thoughtful. 

 Entertainment Features

Although families often bring their own devices with them on the road, rear-seat entertainment systems are still a valuable as well as an appealing feature for parents of children who are too young to be trusted with a tablet, and luckily automakers have continued to make enhancements to these systems.

The Odyssey and Sienna both offer optional Blue-ray rear-seat entertainment systems that assist in media streaming from Android devices and have screens overhead in the second row. The Odyssey has a 10.2-inch  and 16.4-inch screen display that can show two different programs at the same time. However, the 2021 Pacifica still dominated in this area when it launched the Uconnect Theater, as its two 10-inch touchscreens have similar Bluetooth capabilities and Android-based streaming but also includes built-in games, including new ones like chess.

Comfort and Adaptability

Lastly, the Pacifica is more than optimal when it comes to comfort and versatility. All three vans showed to have second-row captain’s chairs at the auto show but there are still dramatic differences between them. 

The Pacific’s Stow n’ Go bucket seat can fold into the floor when you feel like you don’t need them, therefore eliminating the tedious removal process. All of Pacifica’s chairs and very comfortable and supportive. It also has an interior that has a very stylish, sporty, and I dare say a somewhat futuristic type of feel. 

There are conflicting opinions as to whether or not the Pacifica is the most comfortable vehicle out there but that doesn’t take away from the fact that both of the Sienna and the Honda still look like underdeveloped has-beens on the inside and provides little to no presentation to the eye.

Miami Lakes Chrysler

Those who are interested in the 2021 Pacifica will have to wait for just a bit, as it is not set to be released until the end of this year but don’t fret! Miami Lakes Automall currently has a wide range of different vehicles, especially that of 2020 Pacifica’s that have very similar features to its successor.

Chrysler 3.6-liter Pentastar Engine in All Chrysler Models

3.6-liter V6 chrysler miami lakes automall

All three Chrysler models, the Pacifica, Pacifica Hybrid and 300, all have a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine. However, each vehicle is a little bit different and all three vehicles have different transmissions and/or other systems that give the vehicle a different horsepower, torque and fuel economy. Read below for all of the ways the engines and specs differ from one another.

The Chrysler 300 with the the 3.6-liter V6 24-valve VVT engine comes standard with an eight-speed automatic transmission. With this engine, the Chrysler 300 produces 300 horsepower and 264 lb-ft of torque, which is a significant amount of horsepower for a “standard” engine. But, just because the Chrysler 300 is powerful doesn’t mean it’s not fuel efficient. When equipped with the 3.6L engine, the Chrysler 300 has a fuel economy of 19 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway. In addition, the 3.6-liter engine can be paired with a rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive drivetrain.
