What’s New for the 2023 Chrysler 300?

The Chrysler 300 began way back in 1955. The modern version first hit the market in 2005. Either way, you look at it, it has been around for a long time. It looks like Chrysler decided to stop production after the 2023 model year.

Still, the 2023 Chrysler 300 somehow manages to mate the class of a Bentley with the bad-boy charisma of a muscle car. You get a nice 8.4-inch touchscreen for a bit of modern convenience. The standard 3.6L V6 engine and eight-speed automatic transmission provide plenty of power while power-hungry drivers can go for the top-tier trim to get the 6.4L V8 under the hood. There are a total of four trims available.

The 300C trim comes with the 6.4L V8 which pumps out 485 horsepower and 475 lb.-ft. of torque. The 300C also gets an updated interior with carbon fiber accents, adaptive suspension, and Brembo brakes. A new badge design is exclusive to the 300C. Other than the changes to the 300C trim, the other trims did not see any notable changes.

2023 Chrysler 300 Powertrain

The Chrysler 300 comes standard with a 3.6L V6 engine that produces 292 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque. An eight-speed automatic transmission is standard on all trims. Rear-wheel drive is standard, and AWD is available on all trims but the 300C.

The Chrysler 300S comes with a 5.7L V8 that puts out 363 horsepower and 394 lb.-ft. of torque.

The 300C trim comes equipped with an incredible powerhouse: a 6.4L V8 Hemi. This monster pumps out an incredible 485 horsepower and 475 lb.-ft. of torque. The 300C comes exclusively in rear-wheel drive.

While it is a rather large car, it handles well. The 300S trim provides a bit of a rough ride thanks to its stiffer suspension and 20-inch wheels, but the other trims provide a nice, soft ride. There is not a lot of feedback from the steering wheel, but body roll is controlled by a taut suspension.

If you’re looking for a comfortable ride, then the Touring or Touring L trims will be right up your alley. If you’re looking for bone-shattering power, the 300S trim or 300C trim should be your obvious choice. They really crank up the “fun factor”.

2023 Chrysler 300 Fuel Economy & MPG

The 2023 Chrysler 300 gets 19 MPG city/30 MPG highway from the stock 3.6L V6 engine and an RWD configuration. That number drops to 18 MPG city/27 MPG highway if you decide to go with the optional AWD. Going with the 6.4L V8 will drop that all the way down to 15 MPG city/24 MPG highway.

Interior, Comfort, & Cargo Space

The 2023 Chrysler 300 base model – the Touring trim level – has a rather cheap-feeling interior. It has cloth seats and very few extras. Stepping up to the Touring L and the 300S trims will give you more amenities such as dual-zone automatic climate control and leather seats with power adjustable front seats (heated with lumbar support). You’ll also get a leather-wrapped steering and illuminated cupholders.

A heated steering wheel, heated rear seats, and a power-adjustable steering wheel are optional on all but the base model.

The 300C trim gives you even more goodies like a 19-speaker Harmon Kardon audio system, Black Laguna leather seats, and carbon fiber accents.

The materials feel decent but look fake. For example, the dash is covered in a rubberized plastic with leather-grain patterns on it that just screams “artificial”. It is safe to say that the interior is outdated compared to its competitors.

One of the great things about it, however, is the amount of space that it offers both the driver and the passengers. Even when filled to the brim with 5 passengers, there is plenty of room for all. The trunk is large and boasts 16.3 cubic feet of space. If you need more space, the rear seats fold down for even more space. The seats do not fold flat, but they do allow for a lot more cargo to be carried if necessary.

Entertainment & Technology

There isn’t a lot of new technology that comes standard on the 2023 Chrysler 300. There is an 8.4-inch touchscreen display that offers Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. SiriusXM satellite radio is offered with a free one-year trial, and navigation is optional.

That’s about it. There’s no new tech which is a bit of a letdown for a vehicle that already suffers from an aging problem. We would have liked to have seen the addition of USB ports in the rear and a bigger screen offered on higher trims.

Safety Features

One of the downfalls of the 2023 Chrysler 300 is the fact that all the driver assistance and safety features are optional on all trims. The safety package comes with automated emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assistance, automatic high beams, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and a forward collision warning system.

What we think

The 2023 Chrysler 300 is the last breath of what was an iconic model. It has now been reduced to nothing more than a model too in need of an extensive remodel. Chrysler obviously feels that this model has reached the end of the road. Chrysler seems to be poised to put more focus on their EV lineup in the future.

In order to continue with the Chrysler 300, Chrysler would have to do much more than simply offer big engines in the already pricy higher trims – they would have to give drivers more up-to-date technology. Making the safety features optional just doesn’t fly in a market with safety-conscious drivers.

The 2023 Chrysler 300 does not offer a lot of benefits compared to other sedans. The styling is awesome, and the big engines are really fun. But they simply haven’t evolved enough over the years to be current. The competition has evolved and seems to do everything just a little better.
