Chrysler 300C 2023 Debuts With 485-HP V8 For The Last Year Of The Sedan

The Chrysler 300C returns for the 2023 model year with a 6.4-liter V8 engine that churns out 485 horsepower (362 kilowatts) and 475 pound-feet (644 Newton-meters) of torque. It’s only available for one year, as 2023 marks the end of the 300 lineup.

The 300C has an eight-speed automatic transmission that drives the rear wheels via a limited-slip differential. Chrysler says it can shift between gears in 160 milliseconds. The powerful drivetrain makes the new 300C reach 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour) in 4.3 seconds. It runs the quarter mile in 12.4 seconds. The top speed is 160 mph (278 kph).

This muscle sedan is also equipped with red four-piston Brembo brake calipers and active dampers for the suspension. The sound coming from the exhaust is adjustable, and gas comes out of a pair of circular black tips.

The 300C has a black grille with a red, white, and blue badge in the top corner. The bezels around the headlights and taillights are also black. Three body colors are available: Gloss Black, Velvet Red, and Bright White. This car uses 20-inch forged wheels with all-season performance tires.

The cabin has Black Laguna leather upholstery with silver stitching. The 300C logo is embossed on the front seats. Carbon fiber trim and piano-black trim add a sporty feel to the interior. The vehicle is equipped with heated and ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel and a 19-speaker Harman Kardon stereo.

Chrysler limited production of the 300C to 2,000 units for the United States and 200 units for Canada. Prices in the US start at $55,000 before destination charges. Company is accept online reservation now.

The original Chrysler 300 debuted for the 1955 model year. The engine was a 5.4-liter (331-cubic-inch) hemi V8 with solid valve lifters and two four-barrel carburetors. With an output reaching 300 hp (224 kW), it was a powerful performance car for the era.
