The Enterprise - - Auto Trends -

The 2019 Chrysler 300 lineup de­liv­ers on the brand’s prom­ise of iconic and el­e­gant de­sign ex­e­cuted with world-class per­for­mance, ef­fi­ciency and qual­ity – all at an at­tain­able value.

Of­fer­ing class-ex­clu­sive in­no­va­tions and ad­vanced tech­nol­ogy at the driver’s fin­ger­tips, the 300 lineup in­cludes the Uconnect 4C sys­tem with Ap­ple CarPlay and An­droid Auto, im­proved fea­tures and an award-win­ning in­ter­face. The TorqueFlite eight­speed trans­mis­sion de­liv­ers up to 30 miles per gal­lon (mpg) high­way fuel econ­omy and comes stan­dard on ev­ery model.

Avail­able on the Tour­ing, Tour­ing L, 300S and Lim­ited is the seg­ment’s most ad­vanced all-wheeldrive (AWD) sys­tem, which seam­lessly en­gages at any speed to en­able op­ti­mal trac­tion and con­trol based on con­di­tions, driv­ing style and road sur­face. Stan­dard on the 300C and avail­able on the 300S, the 5.7-liter HEMI® V-8 en­gine with 363 horse­power is the most pow­er­ful V-8 en­gine in its class.

With nu­mer­ous style pack­ages, strik­ing de­sign and so­phis­ti­cated in­te­ri­ors, the Chrysler 300 is Amer­ica’s big and bold sedan here to make a state­ment.

New for 2019:

New Black Noise wheel fin­ish stan­dard on 300S mod­els, in­cluded with Sport Ap­pear­ance Pack­age on Tour­ing mod­els.

All Chrysler 300 V-6 mod­els are avail­able with the seg­ment’s most tech­no­log­i­cally ad­vanced AWD sys­tem, which in­cludes a seg­ment-ex­clu­sive ac­tive trans­fer case and front-axle dis­con­nect sys­tem to im­prove real-world fuel econ­omy. This ad­vanced AWD sys­tem seam­lessly tran­si­tions be­tween rear-wheel drive (RWD) and AWD with no driver in­ter­ven­tion to max­i­mize fuel econ­omy.

Chrysler 300S of­fers more ath­letic and youth­ful ap­point­ments to the lineup thanks to a unique 300-horse­power Pen­tas­tar V-6 en­gine with pad­dle shifters and sport mode, per­for­mance sus­pen­sion, blacked-out ex­te­rior ac­cents, Black Noise wheels, leather-wrapped sport seats, ex­clu­sive Pi­ano Black in­te­rior ac­cents and avail­able sig­na­ture nine-speaker Alpine Au­dio sys­tem with sur­round sound and trunk-mounted sub­woofer.

As the pin­na­cle of the lineup, the 300C fea­tures model-ex­clu­sive Plat­inum Chrome fin­ishes, 20-inch pol­ished-alu­minum wheels, sport mode with pad­dle shifters, avail­able sig­na­ture two-tone Indigo/Linen (Mocha also avail­able) in­te­rior en­vi­ron­ment with seg­ment-ex­clu­sive deep-quilted and per­fo­rated Nappa leather seats and door pan­els, hand-sanded nat­u­ral pore wood, French ac­cent stitch­ing and leather-wrapped steer­ing wheel with unique chrome ac­cent ring.

Sport mode in­stantly trans­forms the per­son­al­ity and per­for­mance of the Chrysler 300S and 300C mod­els by re­duc­ing shift times from ap­prox­i­mately 400 mil­lisec­onds to 250 mil­lisec­onds, in­creased en­gine and throt­tle re­spon­sive­ness, firmer steer­ing feel and turns AWD “on” (if off) with AWD mod­els for im- proved dy­nam­ics.

For driv­ers who want even more per­for­mance from the 300C model, the leg­endary 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 en­gine with Fuel Saver Tech­nol­ogy is stan­dard and de­liv­ers 363 horse­power, 394 lb.-ft. of torque, 0-60 miles per hour (mph) in less than 6 sec­onds and best-in-class V-8 to­tal range of 352 miles (EPA es­ti­mated 16 mpg city/25 mpg high­way/19 mpg com­bined).
