2013 Chrysler 300 SRT-8

2013 Chrysler 300 Review

(0 Stars)  Chrysler seems to have a 300 for almost any taste.

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

New for 2013
A winter-themed Glacier model joins the 300 lineup, and is only available on cars fitted with all-wheel drive. At the same time, Chrysler honors its Detroit roots with a Motown-themed special-edition model, and a special-edition model designed by Detroit-born fashion icon John Varvatos.
Overview
Chrysler says its 300 portfolio has been “simplified” for 2013, but with eight variants available at dealers, we wonder just how complex things were before. Three trim levels – the 300S, 300C Luxury Series, and 300 SRT8 – joined the lineup in 2012, while the Glacier, the Motown Edition, and a signature model dressed up by designer John Varvatos were added to the 300 the portfolio this year. 300 sedans equipped with the base 3.6-liter V-6 are paired with a ZF-designed eight-speed automatic transmission, and yield either 292 hp or 300 when in a 300S. Chrysler’s 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 is optional in all but the base 300 model. Hemi-powered cars are also available with all-wheel drive, but all V-8 cars are only offered with an aging five-speed automatic transmission. For the ultimate in power, opt for the SRT8. Its 6.4-liter V-8 cranks out 470 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque, and adaptive dampers iron out body roll on the track and soak up potholes on the road. The 300 is still a big, broad-shouldered chunk of Americana, but with more finesse, flair, and variety than ever before.
