2019 Chrysler 300 Complete In-depth Review & Buying Guide


Anuron Deka's image

Anuron Deka Content Writer Updated on: November 5, 2019


The classic American styling, bigger engine, and a galore of features; the Chrysler 300 is back to being the corporate commuter for 2019. Though the rise of mid-sized SUV has wounded the large sedan market, the Chrysler 300 is holding its territory. The fact that it 's a rear-wheel-drive hardly leaves a direct competition on Chrysler's plate and this makes the 300 exclusive and unparallel to other large sedans in the market.

Expert Review

Overall Rating


Chrysler gave everything to the 300 and still managed to keep the price below forty grand which is impressive. The base trim comes standard with a 3.6L V6 engine mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. This kind of powertrain can amass 293 horsepower and 260-pound-feet of torque. There is an option for a V8 engine too on the 300C trim which cranks out 395 horsepower and 363-pound-feet of torque.

2019 Chrysler 300 Features

8.0/10

Chrysler 300 still wears its retro cover and always ready to make a statement. There are 5 configurations to this sedan starting from the base price of $28,995. It might feel like an upmarket chauffer sedan but it features a punchy V6 and V8 engines, both capable of flooring the car with adequate power. The choice of transmission is limited to an 8-speed shiftable automatic. The entire Chrysler 300 lineup features a Rear-wheel drive drivetrain with an option for all-wheel drive, except for 300C which only comes in Rear-Wheel-Drive.

We Recommend

Chrysler makes your choice tuff with five trim levels on the 300. But don't worry, we have got you covered. The Limited trim is your answer. It offers a wide range of features associated with premium sedans like ventilated seats and leather upholstery.

2019 Chrysler 300 Engine and Performance

7.0/10

Don't let the "S" fool you; this is no sport sedan. It may have summer tires and a stiff suspension, but any sporting intentions are purely coincidental. No, this is a sport touring sedan built for gobbling up the miles on long, open roads. It comes with a V6, but the optional V8 is sublime. Get it- Edmunds

Engine and Transmission

Chrysler 300 looks like a collector's car with more emphasis on the retro design. Though mechanically Chrysler remains unchanged with its 3.6L V6 engine mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. The power plant pumps out a 292 horsepower and 260-pound-feet of torque. The 300S through harbors a similar engine can muster up to 300 horsepower. The secret ingredient to this recipe is a performance exhaust and cold air intake.

On the top trim, you have a 5.7L V8 engine backed with the same 8-speed shiftable automatic, you get 363 horsepower and 394 pound-feet of torque. The transmission is a real winner in the entire powertrain delivering uninterrupted power to the rear wheels or all four wheels of the car.

Acceleration

The V8 undoubtedly offers quicker acceleration in comparison to the V6. The Chrysler 300 Touring takes 0-60 mph in 6.6 seconds, which is slightly lower than the rivals. On the other hand, the V8 churns out power in a focused and smooth manner. With the 8-speed automatic, shifting gets easier and handy.

The 300S  has paddle shift controls and a sport mode that enables responsive shifts. Only the 300C is rear-drive configures, while all the V-6 powered 300 sedans can be fitted with the optional all-wheel drive with an axle-disconnect feature.

Ride and Handling

Being a corporate cruiser the Chrysler 300 has well-balanced steering, it's not too responsive like a sports sedan but is predictable enough for smooth maneuvering. The suspension is on the stiffer side plus the grippy tires. Though despite so much traction the heavy body suffers from a lot of body roll. The V8 packs enough power for what the Chrysler 300 is made for, the shifts are smooth which overall contributes to a comfortable ride.

Braking

Similar to its ride quality the 300's braking is smooth and reliable. The pedal response is prompt even to the light touches. The traction from its summer tires plays a big role in the panic brake test. The front brakes are rated at 13.6 inches and the rear at 12.6 inches. Chrysler halts for the speed of 60 mph in 121 feet which is pretty average for the class.

8.0/10

Big on the outside, big on the inside the 300 adheres to this classic formula. It earns high marks for ease of entry and exit, a solid driving position, straightforward controls and copious passenger space. The main downside is the iffy visibility that results from its chunky styling:-Edmunds

Seating and Comfort

This time, Chrysler has added premium luxury features right from the base 300 Limited models that buyers can't even imagine. The standard fitments include power front seats with heat and adjustable lumbar support, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, and illuminated front and rear cupholders.

When you upgrade to top-spec 300C, then the luxury quotient is even higher. The standard accessories offered with the base models are unique. To add more luxury, the dashboard and upper door panels are covered by a soft-touch rubberized plastic with a leather-grain pattern.

Infotainment

Chrysler 300's Uconnect infotainment system is the best in the business right now. It features a standard 8.4- inch touchscreen display that is paired with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The SiriusXM satellite radio has also been offered as standard but under the one-year trial deal. The navigation is optional on the 300S and standard on the 300C.

The base Limited trim is blessed with an average six-speaker audio system, while 300S models come with a 10-speaker Beats system. Also, the 300C can be availed with an optional 19-speaker Harman/Kardon stereo.

Cargo volume

You can easily store small items throughout the 300's cabin. The door pockets are however narrow, but the center console and glove box offer better storage space. In the rear, you get 16.3 feet cube of cargo space which is very similar to the Dodge Charger SXT. While the Chevy Impala offers cargo space of 18.8 feet cube.

7.0/10

We've become jaded when we call out cars for bad styling, when they've only grown older. That's why the Chrysler 300 still scores well in our styling category. No, it hasn't changed much since its 2005 launch or since a light reskin several years ago. But it's still powerful in its presence, and elegant in its best Sunday clothes- The Car Connection

Design and Dimensions

The Chrysler 300's styling is quite exaggerated and bold. The large front grille is flanked by two LED headlamps. The front fenders have been raised to meet the low hood. The lightly contoured exterior door panels and high windowsills makes the overall height distinguished. The simple and handsome styling illuminates with the attractive square taillamps.

Chrysler is retro and bulky, the 4000-pound weight confirms the fact. It's a full-size sedan 198 inches long, 75 inches wide, and height at 58.7 inches tall. The wheelbase is long giving it a wider turning radius. The design might have become a fossil from 2015 but still, it looks good on the road. The sober paint colors like Velvet Red and Ocean Blue makes it a perfect corporate sedan.

2019 Chrysler 300 Competition

Chevrolet Impala vs Chrysler 300

Chevy goes all-in with their best bet, Chevrolet Impala. Though hardly anything has changed for yesteryear's Impala it's still going strong for 2019. The Impala outruns Chrysler in terms of acceleration but its high speed comes on the cost of mileage. It might be a tad less on mileage, then you have the drive quality which is fairly similar to that of the Chrysler. Both cars are ideal for commuting and are infected with subpar interior quality. The comparison between the two is a tough one, both cars are obedient to drive without any flashy takes on the interior or the exterior. Truly your choice will largely depend on the type of muscle you prefer.

Kia Cadenza vs Chrysler 300

With a familiar V6 engine and a well-crafted interior, the Kia Cadenza is all over the sedan industry. Being the only car that can battle out and win again the Chrysler 300, the Cadenza is a strong full-size sedan. The build quality is fair and the feature list is bombarded with advanced safety suit. The sedan keeps up with Chrysler's pace in terms of power, performance, and practicality. Kia did a fine job on the interior which feels better than Chrysler's hard plastics. However, the Cadenza has its own flaws, its ride quality is not that inspiring.

If you are looking for a well-rounded full-sized sedan Kia Cadenza will probably have an advantage with its decent interior quality.

Ford Taurus vs Chrysler 300

The Ford Taurus is built to cruise on the highway and travel the country and it accomplishes its purpose. However, Ford made the mistake of calling it an SHO which put a specific standard on everything the Taurus does. On top of it, Taurus is a Sports sedan so the expectations boil up on an even higher state. Otherwise, the Taurus is fine, it has a big cargo bay, an acceptable economy, an impressive performance for a full-size sedan. If we have to pinpoint a flaw in Taurus then that would be a sword piercing through the car's interior.

Factoring the deliverables, Taurus goes neck to neck with Chrysler 300 in every aspect but stays a little back and let the Chrysler take the lead.

2019 Chrysler 300 Final Verdict

With its bold lines and long body the Chrysler 300 looks more like a muscle but at the same time has its unique state sedan vibe. The previous generation suffered from a wacky ride but this one has surpassed its predecessors big time. Under the hood sits a familiar V6 engine generating enough horses to speed up on the highways and counter the city's hassle. It's a big sedan, with a lot of space at your disposal, you can take all your belongings in it with a couple of golf bags in the Chrysler 300. The feature list is adequate when matched with the price but the interior's plasticky feel will leave you baffled.

Overall, the Chrysler 300 is a great car in the Full-sized sedan market, getting your hands on one will not leave you in dismay.
