In this, its 13th year of production with only one major overhaul, the 2018 Chrysler 300 might not emerge instantly in the eyes of buyers by contemplating big cars to buy. This quieter, more luxurious and more stoic brother of the Dodge Charger and the Dodge Challenger SRT Scat Packs, Hellcats and Demons who pull wheels has not attracted much attention lately. Chrysler canceled the high power SRT8 300 in 2015 as Dodge began to probe the outer limits of the powertrain craze. And although the results of a 23andMe swab of the 300 reveal DNA traces of ancient ancestral migrations from Stuttgart, Germany (thanks to a few bits W210 E- and W220 S-Class at the turn of the century), this car does not smell neither old nor the slightest Swabian.
The confident shape of the 2018 Chrysler 300 has a clear balance of angles and rounded corners. It is a classic long-fuselage and long-box sedan, which carries its elegant and simple sheet. The most luxurious models are a bit too aerodynamic trim, but their large 20-inch wheels fill the wells in a perfectly threatening way. The simple grid does not interfere with the front end of the bluff. In the profile, he is muscular and square, but always elegant. The LED taillights surmount his blocky but distinguished bod. The 300S models have blackened moldings and wheels and a black painted roof is available.
Cabin 300 has organic shapes and soft curves. The 300 base cabs are lined with hard plastic, but higher-priced models swamp the cab in gloss black or natural wood finish, as well as quilted leather door panels and discreet metal trim. In its superior finish, the Chrysler 300C has a luxurious and convincing appeal that has influenced newer cars, such as the Pacifica Minivan.
Last year’s choice was the top-of-the-range 300C, but this model has abandoned the more fuel-efficient V6 engine in favor of the fuel-hungry, fuel-efficient 5.7-liter V8, so for 2018 we recommend the mid-size Limited range. The base price of $ 37,690 from the Limited is a good starting point for an already well-equipped 300
