The Chrysler 300 is equipped with an incredible 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine, which boasts 292 horsepower (or 300 horsepower in the 300S trim level). Also available is the super powerful 5.7-liter V-8 which is rated at 363 horsepower. Both the V-6 and V-8 engines are teamed with an eight-speed TorqueFlite 8 automatic transmission. Meanwhile, the V-6 models offer either rear- or all-wheel drive, and the V-8 models are rear-wheel drive only. There is an exceptional performance focused 300S trim level that offers a Sport function. With the simple touch of a button, the 300S will quicken the gear changes, as well as increase throttle responsiveness, and modify the steering dynamics. The Chrysler 300 models equipped with all-wheel drive have also gained a rear-biased torque split, which offers even better handling when the Sport mode is activated. Finally, the 300S boasts a unique exhaust system and an exceptional sport suspension.
The most remarkable changes to the 300 are seen on the exterior. There is a renewed attention to attitude, which has long been an integral part of the Chrysler 300. Heightened for the 2015 model year is the 300's attention to dramatic styling, with a distinct snout-like grille, which is integrated further into the bumper than seen in previous models. The finish and surrounding area of the grille varies by trim level. Adding further attractive designs, the grille is bordered by a series of projector-beam headlights with LED daytime running lights. Available are adaptive high-intensity-discharge headlights and LED fog lights. Finally, new LED taillights work to bring attention to the updated rear bumper, as well as the rectangular exhaust outlets. There are standard aluminum wheels which measure 17 inches in diameter, or the optional 18-, 19- or 20-inch wheels. Also available is a panoramic sunroof. Standard features in the interior of the Chrysler 300 include an array of premium amenities, like a 60/40-split folding backseat, dual-zone automatic climate control, cruise control, Bluetooth streaming audio, an MP3 jack, heated front seats, USB connectivity, and Chrysler's Uconnect multimedia system with an 8.4-inch touch-screen.
There is a great array of standard and optional safety and security features in the Chrysler 300, and include a backup camera, rear cross-path detection, adaptive cruise control with full-stop capability, front and rear parking sensors, lane departure warning and prevention, a blind spot warning system, and forward collision warning with automatic braking.
