My 300S, a great car
I went to the dealer ready to lease a 2017 Grand Cherokee. My 300 happened to be on the showroom floor and it was love at first sight. Sounds corny, but it is a beautiful car. I have the non metallic Ceramic Gray Clear Coat paint, AWD, The S premium, group and the S Appearance package. Rides like a dream, gas mileage is acceptable for a big car and in sport mode handles really well. Chrysler has made significant improvement in their electronics, infotainment and interior materials. At least they have in the 300. I've owned 5 Jeeps, T&C van and a Sebring Convertible. My 300 is the best of them all. It is a big car, but doesn't have that big car feel inside. Beats audio is wonderful and the styling of the "S" trim constantly gets compliments. AWD only available with the V6, which is fine. 300 HP is plenty to move this car. I test drove the Hemi RWD model, but since I live in the snowbelt, AWD was the obvious choice. No regrets. Trust me, you won't be disappointed.
Lovin the 300s performance and CarPlay
Really is the best American car value out there, and well worth the asking price. Sleek, comfortable, a lot more performance than you expect for a v6, and great tech included too! CarPlay is by far my favorite feature. Love the use of tech within the car, but still easy to use. Has a volume KNOB (which I love). Great gas mileage, and man do I get compliments on the cars looks (inside and out). Really sharp. I recommend the S model, and the sport appearance package makes the outside look the best. Good job Chrysler.
Large American car better than hoped
I bought this car after being in mid sized SUV and large pickup trucks for the past 9 years. Coming from that background, this is an amazing car. I have the Sport model and you cannot be put off by the editor's review here. They reviewed a totally different car than mine in totally different circumstances. I was a little afraid of the comments of the ride and handling but I have not found any of that to be the case. The Sport is a tight, smooth, powerful car in mainstream driving situations. During normal driving it exhibits none of the floatiness or undesirable body roll described here. The seats are bolstered and firm so that one is held tightly in position during turning. They may be a little too small, as many of the Dodge/Chrysler products tend to be. Braking is firm and straight for a large car. In fact, one has to be aware of all the automatic systems in place to help you drive. I brake moderately coming to stops and I can feel the system apply more pressure as one of the safety systems thinks I am not stopping fast enough. Either that or the brakes really grab after a few seconds warm up. The engine is smooth and responsive, especially at passing speeds. And I am getting 28MPG right out of the box at moderate (65-70) highway speeds, which is incredible. Visibility does not seem to be a problem, again coming from a truck background. The quietness is also amazing as is the sound system. My wife bought a new 2016 Charger, the sister car to this and while they share platforms, there are distinct differences that are worth the $10,000 difference. I opted for the AWD system, which may be the only models available here in Minnesota. If all-weather capabilities are what you want or need, this car seems like it will provide them and be a worthy premium choice for large cars available.

2017 Chrysler 300 video

MARK TAKAHASHI: I'm Edmund's editor Mark Takahashi. And here's an expert rundown of the 2017 Chrysler 300. Among other full-sized sedans, the 2017 Chrysler 300 stands out for its bold styling, oversized oldschool proportions, and power to match its attitude. You can choose between a more than capable based V6 engine or burly 363 horsepower V8. With either engine you can also add all wheel drive. The 300 sedan gets a mix of weak and strong grades in every category. But overall, it remains a solid choice thanks to its quiet, roomy, and attractive interior. Cargo capacity is about average for this large sedan. But the wheel wells may get in the way of larger items. With this in mind, it will still hold plenty. The same can be said of the rear seats. A few competitors may offer more space, but not that you'd notice. Both front and rear seats are rather wide and flat so average or slim passengers might feel a lack of lateral support. We're especially fond of the Uconnect infotainment system, which has a big screen and is one of the easier to operate. Standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto make it even better. The bottom line for the 2017 Chrysler 300 is it's still strong after all this time. Recent updates have kept it fresh. And with a V8, you get a grin-inducing wallop in power that you simply won't get with rivals. Compared to newer cars like the Buick Lacrosse, Lexus ES350, and Toyota Avalon we think the 300 is an excellent choice. If you'd like to see more Edmund's expert rundowns, hit subscribe.

Bright White Clearcoat 2017 Chrysler 300C Platinum RWD 8-Speed Automatic HEMI 5.7L V8 Multi Displacement VVT

The 2017 Chrysler 300 is something of a throwback. It's a big and brawny American sedan with rear-wheel drive at a time when that's faded out of fashion. And it looks like the sort of car that hybrids were designed to replace. It's a dinosaur that can be had with a pounding Hemi V8 under its hood. It's everything a 21st-century sedan isn't supposed to be, and that's why buyers love it.

Sold only as a four-door, the 300 is available in four trim levels. The least expensive model is the Limited that still includes things like 18-inch polished alloy wheels as standard equipment. Or it wears 19-inch wheels when ordered with all-wheel drive. Its standard power is Chrysler's 292-horsepower Pentastar 3.6-liter V6 paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The 363-hp, 5.7-liter Hemi V8 is optional.

One step up from the Limited is the S that gets a performance suspension, 20-inch wheels on rear-drive models and 19s on the AWD versions, and a thumping BeatsAudio stereo system. Throw in some "Hyperblack" trim and it's got some jewelry to go along with its attitude. The drivetrain options are the same as the Limited, but the V6 is tweaked to 300 hp and paddle shifters are now fitted to control the transmission manually.

Next up the ladder is the 300C which adds luxury features like a dual-pane panoramic sunroof, ventilated and heated front and heated rear seats, a heated wood and leather steering wheel, and memory systems for the seats, mirrors and radio station presets. At the top of the line is the 300C Platinum that gets HID headlights, a Harmon Kardon sound system that puts the Philadelphia Philharmonic in your dashboard, and 20-inch wheels polished to a glistening reflective finish.

Rear-wheel-drive 300s powered by the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 are EPA rated at 23 mpg combined (19 city/30 highway). The Hemi V8 version, which can't be combined with all-wheel drive, rates at 19 mpg combined (16 city/25 highway). Some of the Hemi's solid highway fuel economy can be credited to Chrysler's "Multi Displacement System" that shuts down cylinders when the car is cruising under light loads.

There's nothing timid about the Chrysler 300 and there's something reassuring in its old-school demeanor. Use the buying tools here on Edmunds to optimize a 300 to exactly your specifications and then get a great deal from a great dealer.
