2019 Chrysler 300 in Maquoketa Iowa

Vehicle Overview

The 2019 Chrysler 300 is a sedan that continues to outshine the competition, thanks to its spunk attitude that matches its outsize exterior. It now looks more distinct courtesy of the several appearance packages and the audacious 300s trim that comes with a performance-tuned suspension, smoked headlamps, and blacked-out wheels. If you want a bolder look, you can go for the 300C models sporting a lot of chrome and an even statelier aesthetic.

The 300 is available in different trim levels, but the overall lineup didn't go through much of a revamp. Some say it needs a makeover, but what we have for now is Chrysler's flagship sedan that has all the driver-assistance features you need and a modern infotainment system to boot.

Exterior - 2019 Chrysler 300

Many automakers end up designing sedans that blend in with the crowd, but surprisingly, the Chrysler 300 stands out. Its small side windows, high beltline, and long hood are there to make a statement and gives the car a certain air of glamor and intrigue about it. On the front end of the 300 is the signature winged Chrysler logo draped across an elegant grille flanked by faired headlights. On the back of the vehicle, you'll love the vertical taillights and another Chrysler logo. A big aspect of the car's looks is its tires and wheels. The 300S models have the 19-inch Black Noise wheels, and the 300Cs have the 20-inch polished alloys.

The 300's most basic model is the Touring. It has the entry-level cloth seats and some basic features to go with it. The Limited model is a lot fancier with a lot of features you can boast right off such as leather-wrapped seats and steering wheel, dual-zone automatic climate control, adjustable lumbar support, power adjustable front seats with heat, and some front and rear cupholders that are illuminated. The top trim 300C has features unique to its own, including a power-adjustable steering wheel, a heated steering wheel, heated rear seats, and heated and ventilated front seats. All the trims have upper door panels and a dashboard covered with rubberized plastic with a leather-grain design. It's artificial, sure, but it does look nice. The interior of the 300 appears to be unchanged but still serves right for Chrysler enthusiasts. For ease of use, Chrysler's Uconnect infotainment system is made available in all trim levels, offering impressive performance and a convenient menu layout. It also comes with an 8.4-inch touchscreen display with a user-friendly interface and the all-time favorite Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Navigation is optional, but you get to have SiriusXM satellite radio for an entire year free of charge. Although the seats can be folded completely flat, they do split in 60/40 arrangement. The trunk can carry up to six boxes, but with the rear seats folded, the huge interior space can fit in an additional 10 boxes.

For its size, the 300 has pretty decent handling, but the helm isn't exactly a standout. As long as you don't go so overly enthusiastic, the chassis is willing to play and its body roll is well controlled. The 300S models have a stiffer suspension than on other trims, and the 20-inch wheels are definitely not for everybody as it may feel somewhat rough. If you want a smoother ride that's near the luxury feel, go for the 300C or the base Limited instead.

Powertrain - Chrysler 300 specs in Maquoketa IA

You get two different powertrains in the Chrysler 300. The base engine is Chrysler's very own 3.6-liter Pentastar V6, which gives you 292 horsepower. The 300S models, however, deliver up to 300 horsepower. There's also the V8 engine, which is standard in the 300C. 300S can also carry the 5.7-liter Hemi V8 engine that delivers 363 horsepower and a 394 lb-ft of torque. Every engine in the 300 Chrysler is backed by a TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission, which is responsible for giving the car extra smooth shifts and contributes to 300's fuel economy. The V6 engine models have an optional all-wheel-drive system that features a front-axle disconnect system and an active transfer case. For better fuel economy and maximum traction, it switches between all-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive without your approval or knowledge.
