Chrysler 300 Overview

Chrysler's 300 is roomy and luxurious, and one of the best large sedans on the market. The 5.7-liter V8 is punchy, but fuel economy is only 18 mpg overall with the five-speed automatic. But the 3.6-liter V6, with its smooth eight-speed automatic, stately ride, and responsive handling, is a bargain luxury sedan and our preferred choice. It averaged a good 22 mpg overall in our tests. Inside, the cabin is roomy and nicely trimmed. The Uconnect touch-screen infotainment system is one of the best in the industry. The top-trim SRT uses a potent 6.4-liter V8. Reliability of the V6 has been average, the V8 has improved to above average.
