The 2022 Chrysler 300 S will be mechanically and physically unchanged this year around and is pegged to arrive at your nearest dealership in late 2021. Being a full-size sedan space inside the cabin is generous and it offers a comfortable and upscale interior for a starting price of $38,720. For the 300 S, you get two engine options a 300 hp V6 engine as standard and a more powerful 363 hp Hemi V8. The 300 S with the V8 is priced at an MSRP of $42,720 and makes for the fastest Chrysler 300 S doing 0-60 MPH in a shade above five seconds.

2022 Chrysler 300 S

Despite being called a sporty sedan, the 2022 Chrysler 300 S only offers an RWD as standard. The V6 is tuned for everyday driving with a fuel frugal approach while the V8 is for the performance and feel of the drive which in turn comes at the price of gas mileage. With the design showing major signs of aging, in this review, we will see how the 2022 Chrysler 300 S rivals the more modern sedans like the Toyota Avalon, Nissan Maxima, and the Dodge Charger.

Overall Rating


The 2022 Chrysler 300 S is among the very few full-size sedans left in the segment that is not only powerful but also spacious and luxurious on the inside. The 300 S is the more sporty and powerful version of the regular 300 and is offered only in RWD configuration. Power comes from a well-balanced V6 engine or a muscle-car equivalent V8 motor catering to a wider set of audiences. 

2022 Chrysler 300 S Front View

Owing to its long dimensions, it offers a spacious and comfortable interior. While it may not be as economic as a Japanese, the 5-year cost of ownership stands at $49,616 which is acceptable enough. If you don't want a long-term commitment, you can even get lease deals that start from $846/month for 36 months after a $1,000 downpayment.

2022 Chrysler 300 S Sedan Buying Advice

7.5/10

Since there are not many changes in store for this year, we would recommend opting for the 2022 Chrysler 300S V8. For the $43,645 price tag, it offers a more powerful 363 hp engine that allows it to sprint from 0-60 mph in 5.3 seconds. It also offers most of the tech and comfort features that you would expect from a car in 2022, and hence is the perfect value for money investment.

The 300’s reasonable starting price, powerful engine, and spacious cabin make it a good value.- Cars.USNews

The 2022 Chrysler 300 S is available as a standalone trim of the Chrysler 300 for a starting MSRP of $38,720 and an additional $1,495 is levied on top of this as destination fees. Under the hood, you get a 300 hp V6 engine as standard, and the upgrade to the 363 hp 5.7L Hemi V8 powertrain results in the price climbing to $42,720. With the cheaper 300 S V6, you get sport seats, sport suspension, paddle shifters, driving mode, and a few more as standard. While with the 300 S V8, features navigation, a panoramic sunroof, an aerodynamic body kit, and a nine-speaker Alpine surround-sound system to justify the price bump.

2022 Chrysler 300 S Sedan Engine and Performance

7.5/10

Indeed, this 300S feels considerably sportier than any Avalon or Maxima.- MotorTrend

Under the hood the 2022 Chrysler 300 S sees no changes. Thus you get two engine options, the base engine is a 3.6L naturally aspirated V6 engine and has been honed to produce 300 hp and 264 lb-ft of torque. The tried and tested unit puts the power to the wheels through an RWD drivetrain and if you want the AWD configuration then you would have to go for the standard 300.

2022 Chrysler 300 S Engine Bay

For more performance and oomph, the brand offers a 5.7L Hemi V8 engine for an extra four grand. This unit cranks out 363 hp and 394 lb-ft of torque. Both the engine options are mated to an 8-speed automatic. The V8 is specifically for those who want a family saloon with a sporty side. The drive experience is sensible and still manages to tickle the senses. 

2022 Chrysler 300 S Side Driving View

With the V6, the Chrysler 300 S does 0-60 MPH sprint in 6.3 seconds and covers the quarter-mile in 15 seconds flat. While with the punchy Hemi V8, the 0-60 MPH time drops to 5.3 seconds, and the quarter-mile comes in just 13.8 seconds. These may not be that impressive, but for a decade-old ride, they are still enough. 

2022 Chrysler 300 S Wheel Design & Brake

In terms of ride quality, the Chrysler 300 S with the bigger wheel size and sport suspension loses the comfortable ride quality of the standard 300. Although with the stiffer ride quality it does gains in terms of better handling which gives you some scope of being playful. But any aggressive maneuvers can still unsettle this big sedan.

The Toyota Avalon is the most powerful ride in the lineup and yet falls short in being the fastest off the line. On the other hand, the Nissan Maxima offers the best acceleration performance beating the 300 S by 0.5 seconds margin in the 0-60 MPH run. The Dodge Charger SXT offers the least power on paper yet manages to match the acceleration timing of the 300 S.

2022 Chrysler 300 S Sedan Fuel Economy

7.0/10

Buyers can choose from either a V-6 or a V-8 engine, the latter of which is mighty powerful but guzzles fuel like a truck.- Car And Driver

Depending on the powertrain option, the MPG figures of the 2022 Chrysler 300 S will vary. Out of the two, the V6 is more fuel-efficient as it offers 19 MPG in the city, 30 MPG on the highway, and 23 MPG combined. Opt for the 300 S V8, and the gas mileage takes a hit. With the V8, you get 16 MPG in the city, 25 MPG on the highway, and 19 MPG combined. 

While you might want a big fuel tank for the slightly short-handed MPG figures, but the 18.5-gallon fuel tank from 2021 300 S stays intact. From a full tank of gas, the 2022 Chrysler 300 S' V6 can offer an overall combined driving range of 425 miles. With the beefier V8, the driving range is limited to 351 miles overall.

In this lineup, the Toyota Avalon takes top points for offering the best MPG figures. While the Nissan Maxima manages to stay close in second place with its gas mileage. The Dodge Charger SXT and the Chrysler 300 S share similar gas mileage and both of them are all-out gas guzzlers.

2022 Chrysler 300 S Sedan Interior

7.5/10

The 300 sometimes feels like more of a house than a car.- Edmunds

The interior of the 2022 Chrysler 300S is one of the things that makes it look a little dated. The old-school vibe with modern touches and a ton of buttons isn't what you see in most 2022 sedans. That aside, the dated cabin is expansive and also comes loaded with features like power-adjustable seats with heating and memory function along with leather upholstery as standard. The front offers a lot of room for the tall guys, and the steering wheel does not obstruct the view despite being placed high up. Being a big sedan there is considerable blindspot and lane changes should be done carefully.

2022 Chrysler 300 S Dashboard

The rear seats of the 300 S are also roomy and spacious like the front. The dual-zone climate control can be clubbed with ventilated seats for added comfort. Built on the premise of a sensible car, the 2022 Chrysler 300 S offers 16.3 cu-ft of cargo space which is ample enough for daily use. For more space, the rear seats are foldable to allow you to store more stuff along. Overall, the vibe of the interior is a perfect amalgamation of sporty, practical, and comfortable to justify the forty grand price tag.

2022 Chrysler 300 S Infotainment

In terms of entertainment, you get an 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Uconnect 4C as standard. The interface is straightforward to use. The system is hooked up to a decent 6-speaker Alpine Premium sound system. Upgrade to the V8 engine and you get a 506-watt 9-speaker Alpine surround sound system.

From the rivals, the Avalon gets the most spacious interior and a matching cargo bay to the 300 S. The Charger SXT shares its platform with the 300 S, and yet offers lesser rear headroom but has a slightly bigger cargo compartment. The Maxima offers more space in the front than in the back, and its compact dimensions cause the interior to be the smallest in the rivals.

It’s a distinctive design that continues to exude an assertive elegance.- KBB

Trying to find any change in the exterior of the 2022 Chrysler 300 S would be a futile effort as the brand is not making any changes to what has worked so far. While it does look handsome, the signs of aging are getting more visible. The front looks stylish and suave with the LED headlamps and the inverted-C DRLs, and the long hood adds to the appeal. The blacked-out accents of the S model make it look more catchy and aggressive than it is.

2022 Chrysler 300 S Front View

Featuring 20-inch alloy wheels, Chrysler looks stylish and classy. Besides the style quotient, the bigger wheels help in raising the ground clearance to 5-inches which is more than the standard Chrysler 300. The lower lip vents, S badging, and body-colored door handles are all the features that are exclusively reserved for the 2022 Chrysler 300 S. The rear also features LED headlamps, but are more reminiscent of an older car in today's time.

The Avalon is the closest rival from across the pond with its length being just 3-inches smaller than the Chrysler 300 S and the Charger SXT. In terms of exterior dimensions, both the Chrysler 300 S and the Charger SXT are quite long which helps them with their spacious interior and cargo bay.

2022 Chrysler 300 S Sedan Safety

7.0/10

In terms of driver-assist features, Chrysler doesn't give you anything as standard, unless you count a backup camera.- MotorTrend

Probably in its last years, Chrysler is not making any changes to the 2022 300 S structurally, so the safety ratings from last year can be held as a benchmark. The 2021 Chrysler 300 garnered a near-perfect 4-star safety rating in the crash tests from the NHTSA. With the IIHS, 2021 Chrysler 300 gets the highest rating of "Good" in four out of five parameters while for the driver-side small front overlap test it got the second-best "Acceptable" rating which furthers its stance as a fairly safe ride. 

2021 Chrysler 300 S IIHS Crash-Test

Though it is showing signs of aging being based over a decade-old platform, the brand has kept the 300 S updated enough in terms of safety tech. You get most of the everyday safety and driver tech as standard while some can be added via the add-on packages.

Safety Features:

  • Electronic stability control w/ anti-roll
  • Security system
  • Adaptive cruise control w/ stop and go
  • Full-speed forward collision warning w/ active braking
  • Lane departure warning w/ lane keep assist
  • Blind Spot monitoring
  • Front and rear park assist
  • Rear cross-path detection

2022 Chrysler 300 S Sedan Competition

8.0/10

2022 Chrysler 300 S vs 2021 Nissan Maxima

The 2021 Nissan Maxima is one of the most reliable and easy-to-own rivals in this lineup. With better MPG figures, better performance, more safety tech, and fairly cheap ownership experience, it certainly seems like a better proposition than the Chrysler 300 S.

2021 Nissan Maxima

However, the Chrysler 300 S offers more space in the interior and cargo capacity and a quintessentially American driving experience. That being said, the Maxima seems like the more sensible choice among the two. 

2022 Chrysler 300 S vs 2021 Toyota Avalon

Coming from the most reliable brand in the world, the 2021 Toyota Avalon offers the best of the brand as a sedan. A bigger interior, more safety and comfort tech, a more powerful engine, and the best MPG figures in the lineup.

2021 Toyota Avalon

All backed up with a cost-effective ownership experience spell that the Avalon is the better option compared to the Chrysler 300 S. 

2022 Chrysler 300 S vs 2021 Dodge Charger

The 2021 Dodge Charger is the corporate cousin to the Chrysler 300 S. Packed with the same engine, the Charger offers more power, same sized interior and cargo, and lower MPG figures. Although the choice of engine options are more on the Charger compared to the 300 S.

2021 Dodge Charger

Furthermore, if you are not into muscle cars, the Charger might seem a little too raw for your liking compared to its more luxurious cousin. In the end, it boils down to brand preference, but the Charger does strike like a better option with the lower price tag. 

2022 Chrysler 300 S Sedan Final Verdict

7.0/10

The 2022 Chrysler 300 S sticks to its approach of old-world luxury and the modern-day charm with its full-size dimensions and spacious interior. The V6 engine might seem like a thing of the past, but packs a decent performance for the price it asks. Unless you want something that is totally "current", the 2022 Chrysler 300 S is worth a look for its luxurious ride experience and old-world charm among the modern-day rivals.
