With an impressive mix of luxury, style, and value, the new and redesigned Chrysler 300 for 2017 arguably remains a top pick among large sedan enthusiast. Some of the highlights that might be the defining moment for the 300 sedan include an available all-wheel-drive, lots of standard features, satisfying technology and audio systems, upscale cabin, an exceptional quiet and supple ride, and a strong V8 power.
Its release date is expected to be sometime next year, according to credible sources.
Some of the novelties include unique commemorative touches, an upgraded suspension system, a few enhancements including but not limited to Siri Eyes Free, and tons of safety features available on a single package dubbed SafetyTec Plus.
Its combination of attitude and luxury helps overshadow the many large sedans already in the market. Indeed, we can reminisce its debut ten years ago and how it received the attention of its uniqueness and sophistication. Also for 2017, the 300 stays true to its roots but is now a bit subtle and refined.
Others might argue that some of its appeal comes from the available RWD platform and its V6 and V8 power offerings. But still, there is something vaguely imposing about this widely celebrated all-American sedan.
Irrespective of the engine choice, the 300 offers sound acceleration and an impressive smooth and quiet ride. And despite its humongous size, the 300 still manages to keep fit on the road and can move and stick whenever it needs to, thanks to innovative engineering. Its competitors include Toyota Avalon, Buick LaCrosse, and Chevy Impala.
