Chrysler Teases One Of The Most Powerful And Luxurious Special Editions, Can Be 300C

One of the oldest sedans on sale, the 300 has been around since 2011 when the second generation (LD) model was introduced. Finally preparing for a well-deserved retirement and it looks like it will come out with a proverbial explosion. Chrysler recently announced it would “bring power in 2023” but without revealing the identity of the car. Attached here, a new teaser published on the company’s website still hasn’t revealed the model.

However, we are likely to see red Brembo 2023 300C alloy wheels and brake calipers as the photo file name contains this alphanumeric designation. It is billed as “one of the most powerful and luxurious special edition vehicles” in Chrysler history. The use of “special edition” suggests that it will be based on an existing model rather than a new addition to the lineup. As a result, it could only be 300 or Pacifica because the automaker’s lineup only has these two products.

This may come as a surprise to some, but there is no 300C based on this generation yet, despite its very long life cycle. There were 300 high-performance SRT8s, but Chrysler discontinued them for the 2015 model year in the United States, although it continued in Australia into last year. Whatever the new spicy offering, we know it will have a “limited production”.

It’s unclear if the 300C should get the Hellcat treatment, but we expect a healthy power bumper over the 5.7-liter HEMI V8 of the standard model where it pumps out 363 hp (271 kW) and 394 lb-ft (534 Nm). ). The LD-based Dodge Charger with the larger 6.4-liter HEMI V8 in the Scat Pack model can be adopted by the epilog 300. If that’s the case, and the output numbers provided haven’t changed, look for 485 hp (362 kW) and 475 lb-ft (644). Nm), which would make it a bit more powerful than the long-dead SRT.

The official premiere is scheduled to take place on September 13 at 6 p.m. EDT before the 2022 Detroit Auto Show. Chrysler will share details on how you can pre-order it before spring 2023 when the car goes on sale in “limited quantities.” As for the standard model, it hardly changes for the following year’s model, with one exception – the optional SafeyTec Plus Group for the basic Touring trim.
