With a laudable combination of style, power, value and luxury, the Chrysler 300 for 2017 promises a remarkable performance and appeal for any would-be user. Some of its 2017 highlights include an exceptional quiet and supple ride, satisfying technology and audio systems, a strong V8 power, an available AWD system, and lots of standard features. Its release date should be forthcoming during the 1st Q of 2016.
This year’s model promises lots of impressive features and technologies including improved handling and steering, an upgraded suspension, Uconnect standard touchscreen, a slew of safety technologies, and an available 90th Edition Anniversary package.
Despite a large number of large sedans in the market, the Chrysler 300 has managed to outsmart most of them through constant performance and technology upgrades. And just like before, the new 300 combines luxury and attitude both of which contribute to its rarity.
It is also subtle and comes with a stronger emphasis on upscale refinements and appointments. But that’s not the news, to start off with, the 300 comes with an appealing rear wheel drive system and a choice of either a V6 or V8 power that provide any user with a combination of traditional sound and fury and a suitably tamed modern vehicle.
Regardless of the engine, every model comes with a supple and quiet ride quality. Interior wise, there are lots of soft-to-touch materials and upscale technologies which are both appealing and comfortable.
The list of features that give the 300 a unique character can go on and on, however, the segment offers a plethora of alternative vehicles which include the 2017 Chevrolet Impala, 2017 Buick LaCrosse, 2017 Hyundai Genesis, and 2017 Hyundai Azera. But if attitude and luxury are your top priorities, we’d highly recommend the new 2016 Chrysler 300.
