Chrysler adds core per­for­mance

Shepparton News - Shepparton Car Weekly - - FRONT PAGE -

En­thu­si­ast cus­tomers who crave power, han­dling and ca­pa­bil­ity above all else have a fresh rea­son to get ex­cited fol­low­ing Chrysler Aus­tralia’s in­tro­duc­tion of a new per­for­mance model to its 300 range.

De­vel­oped specif­i­cally for the Aus­tralian mar­ket, the 300 SRT8 Core of­fers all the ex­hil­a­rat­ing per­for­mance ca­pa­bil­i­ties syn­ony­mous with the SRT brand and has been de­signed to ap­peal to cus­tomers look­ing for a ‘pure’ driv­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.

With its fo­cus on pure per­for­mance, the SRT8 Core is pow­ered by Chrysler’s im­pres­sive 6.4-litre Hemi V8 engine, which pro­duces a stun­ning 347 kW of power and 631 Nm of torque.

Un­der­pinned by decades of un­com­pro­mis­ing V8 engine de­vel­op­ment at Chrysler, the Core’s Hemi pow­er­plant stands tall as one of the world’s most pow­er­ful nat­u­rally as­pi­rated V8 en­gines.

Yet is still man­ages to be eco­nom­i­cal un­der real-world driv­ing con­di­tions, courtesy of Chrysler’s lat­est Fuel Saver Tech­nol­ogy mul­ti­pledis­place­ment sys­tem (MDS), which de­ac­ti­vates half of the engine’s cylin­ders over a broad range of op­er­at­ing con­di­tions.

By com­bin­ing cylin­der de­ac­ti­va­tion with vari­able valve tim­ing (VVT) and in­ter­ac­tive de­cal fuel shut off (iDFSO), the Core’s Hemi V8 engine is ca­pa­ble of re­duc­ing fuel us­age by 5-20 per cent de­pend­ing on driv­ing con­di­tions.

The Core is equipped with all of the ma­jor pre­mium SRT fea­tures, such as the ac­tive ex­haust sys­tem, hy­draulic power steer­ing and the awe­some stop­ping power pro­vided by the high-per­for­mance Brembo brakes. The 300 SRT8 Core is on sale now at Chrysler deal­ers around Aus­tralia for $56 000.
