The classic line of the Big Power V-8? Rear wheel drive? 2018 Chrysler 300 still makes us feel.
Chrysler 300 has become a living legend. Back for the 14th model cycle, the bruised 4th door reminds us why we still love the big rear drive sedan, why the big V-8 power is no mortal sin.
It gives us hope that we too can live longer than our hard times and become cold again.
For 2018, 300 are present in Touring, Touring-L, 300S, 300 Limited, and 300C trim, but beyond the revised trim package, not much change in terms of performance or price.
Upright in a casual manner, Chrysler 300 releases its cool vibrations easily. The shape is still elegant, these years on the road. Wide shoulders, adjustable metal sheets, grille grilles perfectly with the shape. The body wrapped around the gloomy cabin at the bottom of the black trim, but warmed up like a porch heater when Chrysler applied a piece of wood and natural-coated leather.
The standard 300-standard V-6 and 8-speed automatic works well, if you’re just looking just fine. We will spend $ 3,000 or more for the blatant 353-hp V-8 blade control and paddle shift. No, the Hellcat badge does not apply at Chrysler, but the V-8 is pulling out the car’s right muscle scent without bathing in it. You can not have V-8 and all-wheel drive; If you choose to stay in the state of bad weather, remember, this is an option. The base car has a softer and more pliant handling, so look for a sporty ride and handling sporting package. This is still a handling of large vintage cars, but it’s all in the plus column.
Five people can fit in the 300 sedan, but the rear seat back room is more like the one found in mid-size sedans today. Luxury sports seats in expensive model models such as baseball gloves and wearing perforated nappa leather; For the year 2018, basic car basic fabrics.

300 has not survived with the new sedan in crash test safety, but can be equipped with advanced collision warnings, automatic emergency braking, and parking sensors for use with standard rearview cameras. Chrysler provides an excellent infotainment interface with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and all models have a list of powerful standard features. As you roam into the 300C region, the $ 40,000 price tag brings premium audio, ventilated front seats, and beautiful and perfect natural wood trim.
2018 Chrysler 300 Styling
Chrysler 300 has not changed its settings, really, since the 2005 model year. But what settings it has: crisp, neat, tailored to Brat Pack standards. It survives very well, and so does the interior.
The confident 300 shape has a neatly rounded corner and corner balance. This is a classic sedan with long and short noses, and wear elegant and simple sheet sheets. The plushest model takes it a bit with the aero trim add-on too much, but their big 20-inch wheels fill the well in a very threatening way. The simple grille does not disturb the front end of the bluff.
In the profile it was muscular and square-shouldered, but kept slim. LED back lights detached from the body that hit but burdened. The 300S model gets trims and wheels fainted, and a black paint roof is available.
The 300 cabin has an organic shape and a fine indentation. The hard plastic parts come out of the bottom of the cabin, but the higher-priced models bend the cabin with high gloss black trim or natural wood, as well as leather door paneled panels and soft metallic trims. At the top, the Chrysler 300C has an attractive and luxurious appeal which then influenced the car, like the Pacifica minivan.

2018 Chrysler 300 Performance
Chrysler 300 reveals the glittering legacy of Mercedes in the comfort of driving and easy handling of large cars. Not a sports car, but 300 can be a satisfying sporty sedan, even with the power of V-6.
A 3.6 liter V-6 engine holds 300 sedans, except 300C and some upgraded 300S models. It’s rated 292 hp or 300 hp at 300S, with an 8 hp advantage comes from performance exhaust and cold air intake. The V-6 produces good power in a car of 300 in size, and most buyers do not require more than it provides. It pulls strongly into the interstate, executes two fast passing lanes, and does so with a relatively quiet roar.
We will not blame you if you jump directly to the 8 cylinder. What’s a great domestic sedan without it? 300 markets a 363-hp, 5.7 liter V-8 engine with 394 lb-ft of torque and a cruel exhaust exhaust. With that, the speed of 0-60 mph takes 5.8 seconds. Power comes strong, and the V-8 dop comes out with a force in a smooth, focused stream, with no torque firing out of Dodge’s Charger Hellcat.
Automatic 8-speed standard in the 300 ranks, and this is a sweet redirection unit found in a vast swath of cars from Jaguar to Chrysler to Audi. In the 300S and 300C sedans, the gearbox has paddle shift control and sport mode that reduces throttle speed and shear speed for better response.
300C is a rear drive only, but all 300 V-6-powered sedans can be fitted with all-wheel drive with disconnect-disconnect feature that saves fuel when extra front wheel drive is not needed.

2018 Chrysler 300 goes up and handling
Nuances of 300 large cars can be captivating, including body roll and gentle heaving movement during acceleration and braking. This is a trip to the wayback engine on the base model-more likely to be this year, as the base 300 now has a smaller 17-inch wheels standard.
Let’s just say we’re fans. 300 drives like a great American sedan should be. Not a sports car, but stable and confident, and communicative with some matchable front-drive cars. When the road turns into a winding, you will feel the size of the 300s, although the standard electric steering makes light work turns.
For those who need a little more, there are 300s. It has a retuned suspension with rigid springs, faster steering, a firmer arc, Goodyear 20-inch summer tires, and on a V-8, a thicker rocking shaft. The car was still drove like a big car, but the car was a bit tattly that still could not be on display in a Detroit-style street. Especially with the V-8, the 300S is a large car that is fast and easy to drive.
2018 Chrysler 300 Comfort & Quality
Chrysler has built 300 around a very roomy passenger space, and gives a nice storage space to boot.
No matter which 300 you choose, the seats fit the larger frames well. The bottom pads are wide, supportive backs, and many adjustments. 300 has plenty of head and leg space for front passengers as well. In some of the top models, the more sporty seats have a prominent bolster that envelopes more passengers-perhaps too fitting, if the passengers are wide.
The back seat is good for three people sitting across, if the size is small enough. The seats are quite comfortable too, although high passengers may need to share some of the leg room supplied to the front passenger.
Cupholders are, as you would expect from a large, abundant and good-sized American sedan. Elsewhere in the cabin there is plenty of room for your belongings, including a dumpster in front of a rotary shifter, formed in bottleholders at the door, and 16.3 cubic feet of trunk.
300 gets some fine materials applied in the top 300C and 300S models. The basic car has some hard plastic trim, and most models have rubber material on the dashboard that feels smooth but tend to collect dust. Beautiful trim is applied to the 300C open pore racer sedan with beautiful nappa stitching; the analog clock on the dashboard finally looks right in that context.
