The not-so-unfamiliar Chrysler 300 sedan steps into the new decade with a very familiar set up. Exterior wise, the design has not gone through any radical change for, ever since FCA revealed there five-year finance scheme, the Chrysler 300 barely had resources to have updates and upgrades beyond minor tweaks. But that never stopped the 300 from outshining itself every year. With crucial and relevant tweaks the 300 has stood the test of time and has gone on to become a favourite large car for many.

The 2020 Chrysler 300 continues to share the much-discussed, reliable but outdated chassis, the LD platform, which also houses the Dodge Charger sedan. Coincidentally, both the sportier versions of these sedans share the same platform too. Coupled with such coincidences and an interior that can make any German cabin look bland, the Chrysler 300 aptly fits the description of an executive's car.

This big hunk of a machine has all the necessary armaments to become a pro at firing those big guns. It comes with the options of a V-6 and the legendary HEMI-V8 engines, so agile performance is not something new to this car. But in this new decade, with cars becoming finer, smoother, efficient and green. The Chrysler 300 sedan with its in-your-face large proportionate boxy design, big engine still exudes that same confidence it exuded back in 2005, but is that confidence relevant enough or is it just another literal dimension?

Expert Review

Overall Rating


Back in 2005 when Chrysler launched the 300, the market for full-sized passenger cars turned upside down. By shunning the popular front-wheel-drive choice, the new Chrysler 300 featured a rear-wheel-drive powertrain with an all-wheel-drive option. Performance-wise, this hunk was pretty capable too. When power-thirsty powerplants were being phased out, the 300 featured an updated and refined HEMI-V8. This not only made the 300 sedan modern but by not costing a million bucks, it was a great value for money.

Exterior wise, the body style has not gone through much radical change as such but certain modern updates have kept the car's content and look fresh and up-to-date. The subtly boxy design of this sedan gives out the impression of a Jeep Grand Cherokee and its sturdy body and this design scheme has worked for Chrysler in the past. Moreover, most observers will be hard-pressed to discern the 2020 Chrysler 300 and this will work in there favour provided they're trying to stay current on a budget. As for the interior, a plush well-padded set up has always been the 300's USP, in fact, this is an upscale car. The 300 is available in five trim levels, Touring, Touring L, 300S, Limited and the angrier and more sporty 300C. The base 300 Touring comes with dual climate control, an 8-way-power driver seat with lumbar support, 17-inch wheels and dual exhausts. Except for the 300C, all 300's come with a 3.6-liter-V-6 engine that produces 292 horsepower and 260-pound-feet-of-torque. The 300S can also be availed with 5.7-liter-V8-HEMI, similar to the one in the 300C.

So, overall, the Chrysler 300 has managed to stay afloat in the market for more than ten years now. Now, at a time where cars are phased out due to poor sales figures, it remains to be seen as to how the Chrysler fares. With few noticeable changes and sales that are nowhere close to its glory days number, for quite some time now, will the new Chrysler 300 be able to bounce back?

2020 Chrysler 300 Features

8.0/10

The Chrysler 300 still wears its retro cover with pride and is always ready to make a statement. So design-wise it carries forwards many of its predecessor's visual elements and that has helped in giving this sedan an upmarket chauffer driven car-feel. The V6 and V8 engines on offer, are punchy and responsive enough to always keep you on your toes.

The 292 horsepower-V6 is a standard offering to all the base trims of the 300. For more performance, Chrysler has the 300C, which comes with the legendary, 5.7-liter- HEMI-V8 engine, that produces 392 horsepower. All this power gets linearly distributed through an 8-speed shiftable automatic transmission. The entire Chrysler 300 lineup features a Rear-wheel drive drivetrain with an option for all-wheel drive, except for 300C which only comes with Rear-Wheel-Drive.

If the satisfaction doesn’t end with some mindblowing performance numbers then, Chrysler also has the Red S appearance package and Sports appearance package for those SRT stylings to amplify your car.

What would we recommend?

The 300-line-up is evenly spread with cars of different capabilities and purposes. If you just want a point A to point B car, you have the base Touring trim. If you want to do the same, but with a bit more indulgence then you have the Touring L. If you want all of the above with more power, then the 300S with 300 horsepower is what the doctor recommended. The Limited adds more unique creature comfort features to compete with likes of Volvo S80 or the Ford Taurus

The top of the Chrysler 300 line, the 300C is not just performance oriented but will also have many exclusive features as standard offerings. Features like Heated and Ventilated Front and Rear Seats, Heated Steering Wheel and Power-Adjustable steering wheel ar all unique to the upscale 300C.

2020 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

2020 Chrysler 300 Engine and Transmission

By emphasizing more on its retro design, the Chrysler 300 looks like a collector's car. As far as the engine is concerned, Chrysler has retained the award-winning 3.6-Liter Pentastar V6 engine mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. This popular power plant pumps out 292 horsepower and 260-pound-feet of torque, while the more powerful 5.7-liter-HEMI- V8 generates 363 horsepower and 394-pound-feet of torque. Though the 300S harbors the same V-6 engine, it can muster up to 300 horsepower, more than the others in the line-up. The secret ingredient to this recipe is a performance exhaust and cold air intakes. 

 

2020 Chrysler 300 Engine

Performance can be enjoyed in full glory with the Chrysler 300C. Chrysler's 300C not just boasts a powerful HEMI V8 engine under the bonnet but it also houses one of the most luxurious cabins in the 300 lineups. So, if you wish to own a reasonably priced ultra-luxurious, high-performance sedan, then the 300C delivers exactly that. Overall, the 300 is not a bad car, handling is good and body roll is well controlled too. The LD chassis likes being pushed and doesn't disappoint too. Though the 20-inch wheel tries there best to keep the ride soft, with stiffer suspension, the ride quality is on the rougher side with the 300S.

Provided, Chrysler gives its customers plenty of options, with a base price tag of $39,040, the Chrysler is definitely not one of the cheapest in the above table. But it definitely has a better stance, power, and on-road presence than its competitor. So, overall, the Chrysler 300 is more exclusive than the rest. 

How fast does a Chrysler 300 go?

The Chrysler 300 Touring with its 3.6-Liter-V6 can do a knot to 60 mph in 6.3 seconds, which is slightly slower than its rivals. The V8 undoubtedly offers quicker acceleration compared to the V6. It churns out more power and it takes 5.3 seconds to reach 60 miles-per-hour from a standpoint. The 8-speed, automatic transmission mated to both the engine is responsive, agile. The 300C quickly upshifts, thereby acceleration is fairly quick, though not as quick compared to other peers.

2020 Chrysler 300

So for quicker 0-60 numbers, the new Chrysler 300C is the one to go to for. It's almost one second quicker than its siblings. The performance-oriented V-8 engine will never leave you disappointed if you're seeking for power.

Both the 300S and the 300C  has paddle shift controls and a sport mode that enables the responsiveness of the shifts. The 300C gets fixed rear-drive configuration, while all the V-6 powered 300 sedans come with the optional all-wheel drive with an axle-disconnect feature. This allows the system to disjoint the front-axle and when extra-traction is not needed, thus reducing the mechanical drag and also the fuel consumption. 

 

Braking

Similar to its ride quality the 300's braking is smooth and reliable. The pedal responds well even to the lightest of 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.

Ride and Handling

Being a corporate cruiser, the Chrysler 300's steering wheel is well-balanced. It's not overly responsive like a sports sedan but is predictable enough for smooth maneuvering. The suspension is on the stiffer side plus the grippy tires provide good traction. But despite so much traction, the heavy body suffers from a significant amount of body roll.

2020 Chrysler 300 Wheel

The HEMI-V8 is powerful enough to propel the Chrysler 300 quickly to its top speed. The shifts are smooth so accelerating the 300 will soon become an addiction rather than a task. All in all, the 300 has a comfortable ride.

2020 Chrysler 300 Fuel Economy

4.0/10

The 300's V-6 has a good fuel economy, the base engine gets 19 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway. So a combined fuel economy of 23 miles per gallon is just okay for a car of this size. Though, it's worth mentioning here, that the fuel economy does take a plunge with the all-wheel-drive option.

The performance-oriented 300C with the HEMI-V8 isn't environmentally friendly. It has a fuel economy of 16 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway. If seen, the Toyota Cadenza has the best fuel economy of the lot and American Giants, both Chevrolet, and Ford, have a consumption rate- which in one word is -  Limited. While the whole planet, is trending more towards electric vehicles, Chrysler's fuel consumption becomes an issue, especially when motor companies will have all-electric cars in their line-up. Though, with Dodge having plans of bringing a Charger or a Challenger with electric-powertrains, who knows, maybe the 300 might transition into one EV too.

2020 Chrysler 300 Interior

8.2/10

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 Touring L model that buyers can't even imagine. Heated driver and passenger seats, Eight-way power-Driver seat-lumbar support makes sure that the front seats are comfortable of the lot and these are all just standard offerings. Both the steering wheel and seats are leather-wrapped. 

2020 Chrysler 300 Front Seat

Dual-zone automatic climate control, and illuminated front and rear cupholders add more bling to the interiors of the Chrysler 300. Having put all of that, the cabin experience in the base 300 Touring L model, is on the plusher side.  What makes this year 300 line-up, more exciting is the new 300C. This performance-oriented vehicle not just delivers better performance but has a better more enriching and engaging cabin experience. Apart from having the creature comforts on the base trims, the 300 C features perforated leather seats and a wood-trimmed interior. Furthermore, Chrysler also offers a full-set of crash-mitigating technologies that come as part of its SafetyTecPlus Group.

With an expansive feature list, the cost price of the Chrysler 300 might reach north of $50,000, excluding the destination fee. How you customise your Chrysler is one of the most crucial part of buying a 300. You not only have to be vigilant but also absolutely sure how you want to spec your car. Keep in mind, the HEMI-V8 might offer performance but you'll have to keep in mind the maintenance cost too.

Is the Chrysler300's infotainment system tech-savvy?

Chrysler 300's Uconnect 4C infotainment system is one of 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.

2020 Chrysler 300 Navigation

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. Though it does take some effort to lift heavier cargos due to its higher-lift over height and the 300's 60/40 seat ratio, does work against it. While the Chevy Impala offers cargo space of 18.8 feet cube.

2020 Chrysler 300 Cargo Space

With 20.1 cubic feet, the Ford Taurus is clearly the winner here. And this extra luggage space helps Taurus look bigger too that helps in the Taurus' large visual presence on road. But the 300's low cargo space is definitely not the blot on paper for this car. This Chrysler delivers and ticks all the boxes, that you can expect from a car of this size. So, what if don't have much cargo space, haul one. Just a suggestion.

2020 Chrysler 300 Exterior

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 rectangular LED headlamps. This design scheme of the 300 has remained the same for more than a decade, earlier it used to feature round headlamps and the new ones make the 300 look more aggressive. The front fenders have been raised to meet the low hood. The lightly contoured exterior door panels and high windowsills gives a taller profile to the car.  The roofline of the 300 can be best described as unconventional. That strong line bends on the roof makes the 300 stand out from its peers. At the rear, the 300 retains those sharp lines drops pretty aggressively too that makes the rear of the Chrysler 300 something to look forward too.  

2020 Chrysler 300 Side View

We really love the boxy treatment that makes the 300 look sturdy and well-built. This style statement has worked for Chrysler in the past and hopefully, in the future, such sturdy bodied sedans will continue to be manufactured.

Chrysler is retro and bulky, the 4000-pound weight confirms the fact. It's a full-size sedan that is 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 it still looks good on the road. The sober paint color options like the Velvet Red and Ocean Blue makes this sedan look more upscale and branded.

2020 Chrysler 300 Competition

Chevrolet Impala vs Chrysler 300

Chevy goes all-in with their best bet, the Chevrolet Impala. With few visible changes, just like the 300, the Chevrolet Impala is still going strong in 2020. The Impala outruns Chrysler in terms of acceleration but its high speed comes at the cost of mileage. Keeping the mileage aside, drive quality is fairly similar to that of the Chrysler. Both cars are ideal for commuting short distances and are infected with subpar interior quality. The comparison between the two is a tough one, both cars are obedient to drive and both are practical in their individual capacity. 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 a force to reckon in the sedan industry. Being the only car that can battle out and win against 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 for the ride quality is not as exciting as the 300.

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 countryside and it accomplishes that purpose. On top of that, by attributing the Ford Taurus as SHO (i.e. Super High Output), Ford has set the expectation for this performance sedan really high. The Taurus is fine, it has a big cargo bay, an acceptable economy, an impressive performance for a full-size sedan. 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.

2020 Chrysler 300 Final Verdict

The bold lines and a long body makes the Chrysler 300 look more like a muscle car, but at the same time, it has retained its sedan vibe. The previous generation suffered from a wacky ride but this one has surpassed its predecessors big time. The V6 is refined and efficient and that goes a long way to make this a perfect car. It's a big sedan, with a lot of space at your disposal, you can take all your belongings in it and still have space for a couple of golf bags in the Chrysler 300 (You can try it, by the way). The feature list is adequate when matched with the price but the interior still reeks of those tacky plastic parts that might irk some, but overall, this car is an all-rounder. In fact, in the full-sized sedan market, if you plan to buy one, the Chrysler will surely not be disappointed.
