Chrysler 300C

chrysler 300c

The car manufacturer, Chrysler, has been around for a long time. The first Chrysler 300C models were made during the period of 1955 and 1971 ­ the earlier models, being muscle machines, were generally quite pricey.

Today, Chrysler cars are well built and are packed with many luxury items and safety equipment.

The Chrysler 300C has the X-factor that causes onlookers to turn their heads twice to gaze upon its awesome design. Chrysler has gone for a design that harks back to American car designs of yester-year. With a high waist and a low sweeping roofline, and a nose that draws the eye to the massive grille and beautifully crafted xenon headlights, the 300C looks good. It’s no wonder the sales in America are on the increase for such a great looking, roomy and powerful machine. The various engine sizes, along with the stately sedan and the handsome and practical wagon models, make the Chrysler 300C a tempting prospect for all potential car buyers.

Beautiful leather upholstered seats offering a typically American lounge quality in comfort, plus enough support to remain comfortable for long periods at the wheel, are a fantastic possession the Chrysler holds for its owners. There are plenty of luxury items. These are just some of the things that are available as standard equipment: cruise control, a dual zone climate control unit, electric front seats that are adjustable 8 ways ­ not to mention heated ­ and a trip computer. Now perhaps, the most mentionable luxury item would have to be the superb 280W Boston acoustic 6 speaker sound system that comes as standard with the Chrysler 300C. Clarity and depth of sound is soothing to the soul as you cruise down the highway in your Chrysler 300C. And Americans sure know how to make a car cruise.

With six airbags, and electronic stability and traction control, Chrysler have created a car that has a five-star safety rating, making this a safe and secure drive.

The Chrysler 300C is a big car and Chrysler does nothing to hide this fact in its design. But to move this 1.8 tonne vehicle, you need an engine with some power. None of the engines in the Chrysler line-up should disappoint. According to one’s tastes, the range of engines increase in power output the larger their capacity. The Chrysler 300C comes in a 5.7 V8 saloon/estate form, a 3.5 V6 saloon or a 3.0 diesel V6 estate. All are very smooth units and even the diesel is responsive to throttle demands. But if out and out power is what you are after, the V8 is the motor to go for. The 300C 5.7 V8 packs 250kW at 5000rpm and has a massive torque figure of 525 Nm at 4000 rpm. It’s easy to attain 155mph, where appropriate, and a 6.4 second 0-62 mph time means that your destination is not too far away. However, leading the charge is the Chrysler 300C SRT8. The V8 power house is super strong delivering endless power at any speed. The engine has so much usable torque that passing slower traffic is very quick and safe. All power plants are attached to automatic transmissions that make for very relaxed and responsive motoring as you come to expect from Chrysler

The Chrysler 300C really is a top class vehicle that has such classy looks. Sit back and enjoy this one! Top effort, Chrysler!
