Used 2005 Chrysler 300 SRT-8 Review

Proving that upscale sedans don't have to be stale-looking and slow, the 2005 Chrysler 300 series offers distinctive styling and V8 power in a practical and affordable package.




what's new

The 2005 Chrysler 300 is an all-new, rear-wheel-drive flagship sedan; it replaces the Concorde and 300M. In a clear move away from the cab-forward design theme Chrysler championed in the 1990s, the 300 represents the company's bold new direction and makes use of plenty of Mercedes-Benz technology. Available features include Chrysler's Hemi V8, stability control, side curtain airbags and, later in the year, all-wheel drive.
