2012 Chrysler 300
2012 Chrysler 300
The makeover Chrysler performed on its large sedan for the 2011 model year was extremely successful. The 300 still feels like a big, broad-shouldered hunk of American muscle, but it exudes a surprising amount of European flair, thanks to LED headlamps, a stellar interior, and an available panoramic sunroof. Lest you think the company is content to rest on its laurels for 2012, Chrysler has made a surprising number of revisions. Two new trim levels -- the 300S and the 300C Luxury Series -- join the fold, allowing buyers to add a sporty look and sumptuous cabin materials, respectively. Cars equipped with the 3.6-liter V-6 are now fitted with a ZF-sourced eight-speed automatic transmission and are once again available with all-wheel drive. The biggest news for 2012 is the 300's biggest engine. The performance-tuned SRT8 model rejoins the 300 lineup after a yearlong hiatus, and it's better than ever. A 6.4-liter Hemi V-8 provides a muscular 470 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque, and adaptive dampers pull double duty, curbing body roll on the track and soaking up bumps on the road. In fact, even the lesser 300 models offer a remarkably pleasant drive. With the advent of the eight-speed automatic on six-cylinder models, there's arguably less need than ever to opt for the 5.7-liter Hemi. The 3.6-liter V-6 offers respectable power without resorting to typical eight-cylinder gluttony, and the smooth-shifting eight-speed transmission both aids acceleration and bolsters fuel economy.
2013 Fiat 500 Abarth Side View
October was yet another good month for the Chrysler Group, at least in terms of new-car volumes. The company sold some 126,185 vehicles, which not only represents a 10-percent growth over last October, but the company’s best October sales result since 2007.
2012 Chrysler 300 Front View In Motion
After taking a bit of a breather in May, consumers resumed their love affair with new cars in June. Shrugging off macro economic worries -- mostly having to do with the Euro -- buyers, low and behold, seemed more focused on matters closer to home, like the need to replace their aging set of wheels. Helping to nudge them in that direction were low interest rates, plentiful deals, and moderating gasoline prices.
2012 Chrysler 300S Imported From Gotham City
Chrysler may have worn out the welcome on its "Imported from Detroit" tagline that debuted during the 2011 Super Bowl, but the company has no qualms about reworking that memorable line for another, fictional city: Gotham City, home of vigilante superhero Batman. In a new commercial shown online and on TV networks, Chrysler will show off a modified version of its 300S luxury sedan that is "Imported From Gotham City."
2012 Chrysler 300 Front Three Quarter

2012 Chrysler 300C Rear
