The Chrysler 300S was introduced for 2012 as a design-oriented special edition, and for 2014 it receives a few updates inside and out. The 2014 Chrysler 300S receives new interior and exterior colors, along with some revamped accents that lend it a more modern feel.
The Chrysler 300S has always boasted a sinister, blacked-out exterior look, and this is re-emphasized for 2014 with new gloss black accents around the headlights, a new black chrome grille surround, new 20-inch wheels trimmed in a Hyper Black color, and Chrysler logos front and rear trimmed in chrome and black.. There is a new Dark Ceramic Gray paint color as well.
On the inside, the 2014 Chrysler 300S adds the option of an Ambassador Blue Nappa leather with silver accent stiching, joining the existing Black and Black/Red interior color choices. This special leather includes silver contrasting stitching on the seats, center armrest, and door armrests. Other interior design elements in the 2014 Chrysler 300S include piano black trim and matte carbon hydrographic accents.
The 2014 Chrysler 300S is available with either the 3.6-liter Pentastar engine making 300 horsepower, or the 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 with 370 horsepower. Six-cylinder models are mated with an eight-speed automatic transmission, while eight-cylinder cars use a five-speed automatic. Both engines are available with either rear- or all-wheel-drive.
The 2014 Chrysler 300S starts at $34,640 with destination and sits in the middle of the Chrysler 300 lineup, above the standard 300 but below the 300C, the 300 John Varvatos Luxury Edition, and the 300 SRT.
