2016 Chrysler 300 Review

The Car Connection describes the 2016 Chrysler 300 as quintessentially American, and there may be no better descriptor. A classic design; the raw, throaty power of rear-wheel drive; and an available V8 all back up this claim. Like the vehicles crafted during Detroit's Golden Age, the 2016 Chrysler 300 is big and bold on the roads of Butler, Kinnelon, and Bloomingdale.

Drivers who want a car that's raw yet luxuriously refined can head to Precision Chrysler to get a taste of what it feels like behind the wheel of a great American car.

Exterior

Many vehicles in the full-size segment seem to have lost their edge. Smooth, subdued corners and only the slightest bit of European flair define these cars.

Not so with the 300! The model made a name for itself in 2003 when the stunning 300 debuted at the New York Auto Show. This risk-taking design has since evolved to become less boxy and more wedge shaped, with a backward-tilting fascia and a more complex front profile. The vehicle retains its high beltline, while the trunk deck and taillights have taken on cues from Chrysler's Dodge line of vehicles.

Interior

For such an edgy exterior, the interior of the 2016 Chrysler 300 is all smooth angles and soft surfaces.

An elegant analog clock face, which would nary look out of place in Chrysler's lobby during Motown's heyday, anchors the dash. A simple, uncluttered instrument panel is complemented by the busier but still well-designed central controls. A futuristic and incredibly comfortable steering wheel keeps the driver engaged even during long trips.

Speaking of long trips, the plush front seats feature standard heat, four-way power lumbar adjust, and optional ventilation to make their plushy, supportive capabilities even more enjoyable for those long driving stints.

Performance

Make no mistake, the Chrysler 300 is a heavy car, but it still manages to handle confidently and nimbly through turns. An advanced eight-speed ZF transmission always knows when to find the perfect gear. You can help it out if you wish by taking advantage of the paddle shifters, which come standard on the 300S trim models.

The standard 3.6-liter V6 engine provides a more-than-respectable 292 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque, but opt for the 5.7-liter V8 with the legendary HEMI name and you get an amazing 363 horsepower and 394 lb-ft of torque.

Safety

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety awarded the 2016 Chrysler 300 good ratings for all but one test. Active safety features such as the Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keep Assist, and Adaptive Cruise Control with Full Stop ensure that you have security and safety with each ride.
