5 reasons to buy the 2017 Chrysler 300

1. Two solid engine options 

If you’re looking for a full-size sedan with a strong standard engine, the 2017 Chrysler 300 delivers. The base engine is a smooth 3.6L V6 with a respectable 292 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque (300 hp and 264 lb-ft on the 300S trim). If you want more oomph, opt for the performance-oriented 5.7L V8 engine that produces 363 hp and 394 lb-ft of torque (available on all trims but the 300 Limited). Both engine options are paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive; all-wheel drive is available on all V6 models. 

2. Hushed interior 

Looking for a car that takes the stress out of your daily commute? The 2017 Chrysler 300 boasts a whisper-quiet cabin, effectively shutting out road noise, bumps, and other imperfections on your path. This way, you can enjoy a sense of isolation from the outside world as you cruise along in premium comfort and style. With such a smooth and quiet ride, you and your passengers won’t mind spending time in the Chrysler 300, whether you’re heading to work, running errands, or taking a road trip. 

3. Modern tech features 

The 2017 Chrysler 300 is filled with modern tech to help you stay connected on every journey. A user-friendly 8.4-inch Uconnect® touchscreen is standard on all trims, featuring Bluetooth® capability, Siri® Eyes Free functionality, and an available Wi-Fi hotspot.

Standard Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto integration are new for the 2017 model year, enabling you to pair your device with the large touchscreen. You’ll also get SiriusXM® Radio, two USB ports, and a choice of available audio systems by Alpine®, BeatsAudio®, or Harman Kardon®

4. Roomy cabin 

Need a large sedan with an equally massive cabin? The 2017 Chrysler 300 has the space to meet the needs of your five-person crew. Want to ensure your taller passengers have room to get comfortable? The Chrysler 300 has 41.8 inches of legroom in the front row and 40.1 inches in the back, with 38.6 inches of headroom in the front and 37.9 inches in the rear. Plus, the huge, wide-opening doors make it easy for all passengers to get in and out of this premium sedan. 

5. Sporty 300S trim 

If you’re seeking a full-size sedan that offers an ideal blend of luxury and sport, the 2017 Chrysler 300S trim is a good choice. You’ll get 20-inch Hyper Black wheels and sport-tuned suspension on rear-wheel-drive models, with a Sport mode that offers a firmer steering feel and increased engine and throttle responsiveness. The available Alloy Edition, new for the 2017 model year, elevates the style of the 300S with dark bronze accents on the blacked-out exterior, and Black Nappa leather with Caramel stitching and titanium accents inside.
