Chrysler adds core performance
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.
