2019 Chrysler 300 Overview

The 300 is one of two models under the Chrysler brand. The full-size sedan spans from premium on lesser grades to luxurious on higher ones. For 2019, its ninth year on the market since a full redesign, it sees no major changes.

The Chrysler 300’s familiar engines return for 2019. The standard unit is a 3.6-liter V6 making 292 horsepower and 264 pound-feet of torque. It offers an impressive fuel-economy rating of 19 miles per gallon city, 30 highway, and 23 combined. Heavier-footed drivers will want to opt for the optional 5.7-liter HEMI V8, with its 363 hp and 394 lb-ft. Even with the ability to shut off four of its eight cylinders, the V8’s fuel economy is a not-so-impressive 16, 25, and 19, on mid-grade fuel. Both engines come hooked up to an 8-speed automatic transmission and standard rear-wheel drive (RWD). The V6 can be had with optional all-wheel drive (AWD).

The 300 comes in Touring, Touring L, 300S, Limited, and 300C variants. The Touring trim comes standard with 17-inch wheels, premium cloth upholstery, an 8.4-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, keyless start, LED daytime-running lights, LED tail lights, dual-zone automatic climate control, and halogen projector-beam headlights. As you get into nicer trims, you’ll see options like leather upholstery, larger wheels, 8-way power seats, navigation, HID headlights, remote start, heated and cooled seats, keyless access, and a sunroof. The 300S and 300C grades have different personalities. The former focuses on sport while the latter focuses on luxury. The 300S gets a mesh black grille, smoke-effect headlights, black window surrounds, and, optionally, special front and rear bumpers. Meanwhile, the 300C gets plenty of chromework, including a unique three-dimensional grille, and special 20-inch wheels. Inside there’s genuine wood grain, a two-tone steering wheel, and Nappa leather.

Safety features on the 300 are in step with those of its competitors, despite its older design. A reversing camera is standard equipment; options include forward-collision warning, adaptive cruise control, parking sensors, lane-departure warning, rain-sensing wipers, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic detection. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) last tested the 300 in 2018, where it achieved a score of Marginal for small front-overlap safety, but Good scores everywhere else.

The Chrysler 300 is one of the few affordable sedans to come standard with rear-wheel drive and to offer a V8. That alone makes it worthy of a look for any full-size car buyer.
