Used Chrysler 300 Information
The modern Chrysler 300 was introduced in 2005 as a full-sized premium (luxury) car taking its name from the beloved Chrysler series of 300s from the 1950s, 60s, and 70s. Since its introduction, the new 300 has become the basis for several popular Chrysler vehicles such as the Dodge Magnum and Challenger muscle car. Both the high-end sedan version and high-performance SRT-8 model of the Chrysler 300 have proven to be popular American-style sedans.
The Chrysler 300 derived its styling from both its namesake roots and unique Americanized low-roof, high belt-line "low rider" appeal. Often called a "gangster's production car," the 300 is unique and has proven to be popular among multiple car buying segments in the U.S. Top Gear UK called it "...kitsch gangster cool."
The first-generation of the Chrysler 300 appeared as a 2005 model as a rear-wheel drive model featuring a fair number of European-sourced refinements for its chassis coupled with American muscle car-based engine variants. Several model trims were offered with the 300C marking the top of the line. Engines included both V6 and V8 options as well as rear-wheel and all-wheel drive options. A small production series of long wheelbase versions were marketed as the Walter P. Chrysler Executive Series 300 as well.
In 2011, Chrysler introduced the second-generation of the 300 to market, improving several aspects of the car in order to both extend its appeal and improve fuel economy numbers without sacrificing performance. The new Chrysler winged emblem was added and roof pillars were thinned to make the car appear slightly lighter while a raked windshield made for better visibility. The interior was completely revamped for more versatility and a more premium feel. Engines were consolidated to a single V6 and a single V8 offering and an eight-speed automatic transmission (starting with the 2012 model year) was added to further improve MPG.
Although U.S. sales of the Chrysler 300 have dropped significantly since its height in 2005, thanks largely to the economic recession, they have remained a mainstay in Chrysler's line. The car continues to flagship Chrysler's lineup of sedans.
