New For 2014

Chrysler has simplified the 300 lineup a bit for 2014. The top-end performance model is now just called the 300 SRT, and the sedan is offered in five other trims: 300, 300S, 300C, 300C John Varvatos Luxury Edition, and 300C John Varvatos Limited Edition. The Glacier and Motown special editions and the Luxury Series have all been dropped.

Vehicle Summary

Chrysler revived the 300 nameplate in 2005 for a new full-size, rear-wheel-drive sedan built atop the bones of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. The Chrysler 300 was a smash hit, and we named it our 2005 Automobile of the Year. Editor-in-chief Jean Jennings said of the 2005 300: "At a time when the American auto industry needs heroes, the 300C wins the medal of honor, hands down. Chrysler's 340-hp, Hemi-headed honey has taken America by storm. To see this four-door behemoth hustling down the highway at triple-digit speeds is to crave desperately a turn at its whimsical faux-tortoiseshell wheel. It's the sort of big ballsy, luxurious car for which America used to be known -- a full-scale, rear-wheel-drive, V-8-powered sedan looking to kick butt -- but with a twist provided by its clever German owners. That twist comes in the form of some important engineering elements -- front and rear suspension systems, the five-speed manumatic transmission, and optional four-wheel drive -- provided graciously by the Mercedes-Benz E-Class."

The second-generation Chrysler 300 was introduced in 2011 -- a study in evolution rather than revolution, even though Chrysler was no longer partnered with Daimler. The 2011 300 massaged the 2005 car's brutish design with more rounded edges, and the cabin became more upscale with high-quality trimmings that went toe-to-toe with many luxury marques. What didn't change were the big rear-wheel-drive platform, the availability of all-wheel drive, and the choice of V-6 and V-8 engines. Expect to see the 300 refreshed for the 2015 model year, but a full overhaul will wait until 2017 or 2018 at the earliest.


Chrysler has further simplified the 300 lineup for 2014, but there are still six different trim levels to choose from. Buyers can now select from (in ascending order) the base 300, the sporty 300S, the luxurious 300C, the stylish 300C John Varvatos Luxury Edition, the sumptuous 300C John Varvatos Limited Edition, and the high-performance 300 SRT.

No matter the trim level, the 2014 Chrysler 300 has also scored well in crash testing. Last year, the large sedan achieved a five-star overall rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, and the 300 is also rated as a Top Safety Pick from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

The base 3.6-liter V-6 yields 292 hp (or 300 hp when in a 300S) and is paired with a ZF-designed eight-speed automatic transmission. Chrysler's 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 is optional in all but the base 300 model. Hemi-powered cars are also available with all-wheel drive, but all V-8 cars are only offered with an aging five-speed automatic. For the ultimate in power, opt for the SRT. Its 6.4-liter V-8 cranks out 470 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque, and adaptive dampers iron out body roll on the racetrack and soak up potholes on the road. The Varvatos-fettled models add upscale touches like platinum, titanium, and black chrome exterior trim; open-pore wood interior trim; Nappa and Poltrona Frau leather; special twenty-inch aluminum wheels; and unique badging. The 300S is delineated from the rest of the lineup by blacked-out trim pieces inside and out along with twenty-inch wheels, a sport-tuned suspension (on V-8 models), and a standard Beats by Dr. Dre premium audio system.

The 300 is still a big, broad-shouldered chunk of Americana, but with more finesse, flair, and style than ever before.

2014 Chrysler 300S Front Three Quarters
Chrysler will unveil its face-lifted 300 sedan at the Los Angeles Auto Show this November (the current 2014 model is pictured), and it will be the last of its kind with rear-wheel drive. Fiat Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne gave obvious hints at his five-year plan extravaganza last May that the next full-size Chrysler, coming in 2018 probably as a 2019 model, will revert to front-wheel drive.
2014 Chrysler 300 SRT Satin Vapor Edition Front Three Quarter
The days of the 470-hp Chrysler 300 SRT sedan may soon be numbered. Chrysler brand president and CEO Al Gardner told our colleagues at Motor Trend that the high-performance car sells so slowly it might not make sense to continuing selling it when the refreshed Chrysler 300 debuts later this year.
2014 Dodge Challenger SRT Satin Vapor Edition Front Three Quarters
The latest in a long string of special editions for Chrysler’s high-performance SRT division is a new Satin Vapor package for the Chrysler 300 SRT, the Dodge Charger SRT, and the Dodge Challenger SRT. These Hemi-powered muscle cars will each receive a unique appearance upgrade to add some visual attitude to the lower-cost Core versions of these SRT models.
2014 Chrysler 300C Varvatos Edition Front Three Quarter
The John Varvatos Limited Edition package will return for the 2014 Chrysler 300C luxury sedan, Chrysler announced today. The special trim package first debuted for the 2012 model year, but the automaker said it decided to revive the model after receiving, "strong feedback from Chrysler and John Varvatos design fans."
2014 Chrysler 300S Front Three Quarters
After walking away from unsuccessful negotiations in August for Fiat to buy the United Auto Worker-controlled 41.5-percent stake in Chrysler in the form of a Voluntary Employee Beneficiary Association trust, Bloomberg reports that the two parties are coming together to try to hammer out a deal for a private sale of the VEBA's stake. The two sides have been far apart over the valuation up until now, but are reportedly closer than they have been in the past.
