Chrysler outdid itself performance-wise, with the Chrysler 300 Sedan's 6.4 liter V-8 engine. Test drivers found they can gain momentum quickly, and the 470 horsepower engine can get to top speeds of 175 miles per hour.
The optional eight-speed transmission has a best-in-class rating for combined fuel economy.
Refreshed exterior includes lightweight aluminum hood, which decreases weight and improves fuel efficiency.
Acoustic glass keeps Chrysler 300 Sedan cabin free of wind, road, and engine noise.
The five-speed automatic transmission does not keep up with the powerful engine, shifting more slowly than needed.
Steering capability gets much tougher as the 300 picks up speed, making it particularly treacherous to maneuver at the very same time the need for control grows more critical.
While many features are included, some of the most attractive come at extra cost, driving the price of a fully outfitted Chrysler 300 Sedan to the higher end of the class.
