When the Chrysler 300 appeared in 2005  it put the Chrysler vehicles on the automobile marketing map and with brazenly-Bentley styling,  the car  represented V-6 and Hemi V-8 engines,  rear-wheel-drive and full-size dimensions. But the second generation lost some of its sheen in 2011 in spite of Chrysler updating its interior. Now the 2015 model is here to regain the lost ground with new improvements.


The Chrysler 300 was a huge American deal but after losing some euphoria in 2011, Chrysler improved its credibility by inducting new 3.6 Liter Pentastar V-6 engine producing 292hp, rear wheel drive and a new interior followed by an eventual 8-speed. Chrysler also created a new S model which in spite of its urban styling and  improve suspension  ended up fourth in a six corner comparison test , trailing behind Chevrolet, Impala, Dodge Charger and Toyota Avalon.

The latest refreshment has brought some of the lost identity and sports larger grille with mesh insert and floating badge, revised fascia and new taillights.  The mode however is not as broadly designed as the platform mate the Dodge Charger, which had a through inside-outside job. However post-updates the 300 certainly look better.  The interior changes  for the Limited trim are slight, but dissimilar to the basic Charger which at best looked rental grade, looks upscale to match the posh exterior soft leather trim is standard and other standard equipment  include classy instrument cluster, easy to  understand and use  info display for driver, and the laudable  8.4 inch touch screen Uconnect of Chrysler.

The 300 has comfortable and firmer seats with high-contrasting color choices which looks dramatic in a segment where it is limited. Sporty 300s is the next step in the trim ladder and the 300C is the most luxurious and platinum, new for the 2015   rein at the top   and that has an interior which is decorated with quilted leather, and it is strikingly cozy.

 Irrespective of the trim level, the suspension in the all-wheel-drive 300 models is the same as the Touring suspension found in the 300S last year and they are given the 19- inch wheels and all-seasons to roll. The combination takes the vehicle over bumps without much drama but not much communication comes from the ground to the driver. But it is different with the 300s, courtesy Sport suspension with stiffer springs. The 300S rides lively on back roads of country side and commands better control over the body which hugely raises its status in its class. The V-6 powered 2015 Chrysler300 Limited trim costs $32, 390 and raise up to a $43,390 for the ultra-lux 300C platinum. An additional $2500 is charged for the all-wheel-drive and this option is only for the V-6 models.

After driving it for the day did not yield any dramatic results as such outstanding but the 300  is also not the kind of vehicle that we would recommend not to buy, and especially when it coming to singing on the dotted line for the 300S. We would put it this way that the V-6  is sufficiently enough.
