The 2022 Chrysler 300 is the last of the big, rear-wheel-drive American sedans

The large American sedan is a dying breed, and the 2022 Chrysler 300 is one of the last remaining options on the market. The 300 did get a major refresh in 2015, but ultimately this big sedan hasn’t changed all that much since its introduction in 2005. Unfortunately, the 300 is going the way of most of its competitors, and 2022 is the penultimate version before the model disappears entirely after the 2023 model. For the 2022 model year, there aren’t any significant changes; however, there are some minor feature updates, and the 300 gets a new air filtration system. The 2022 Chrysler 300 is available in three trim levels: Touring, Touring L, and S. Rear-wheel drive is standard on all 300 variants, but the Touring and Touring L are available with all-wheel drive. A 292-horsepower V6 is standard for the 300, but those looking for more punch can opt for a 363-horsepower 5.7-liter HEMI V8 on the 300S.

5 reasons to buy the 2022 Chrysler 300

What We Like

Comfort: Although the 300 may not be considered a luxury car, its interior has a high-end vibe thanks to its comfortable, supportive seats and sleek design. The spacious cabin easily accommodates five passengers, and the generously sized doors make entering and exiting a breeze. Additionally, the cabin stays relatively quiet even when driving at highway speeds, with minimal road and wind noise coming through.

Technology: The Chrysler 300 features the company’s advanced Uconnect® infotainment system that displays on an 8.4-inch screen that fits well with the cabin design. The system is user-friendly and provides Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto connectivity as standard. The 300 does not have many standard driver-assist features; most are optional, such as automatic emergency braking and adaptive cruise control.

Performance: The 300 has been a performance sedan since it was introduced in the 1950s, and the 2022 model carries on that tradition. A smooth and powerful cruiser, the 300 moves well with the V6, but the V8 option provides strong acceleration accompanied by a pleasing exhaust note. Steering and brakes perform well, making this big sedan enjoyable to drive.

What Needs Improvement

Fuel economy: The Chrysler 300 is an excellent option for performance and people moving, but as a large, heavy sedan, fuel economy does tend to suffer. The rear-wheel-drive 300 with the V6 engine is rated at an EPA-estimated 23 mpg combined, but this figure drops to 19 mpg with the 5.7-liter V8 under the hood.
