Current Model
Chrysler's roomy and luxurious 300 is one of the best large sedans on the market. Inside, buyers will find plenty of space for five adults, along with comfortable seats and attractive trim.
The 5.7-liter V8 is punchy but thirsty. We prefer the 3.6-liter V6, which is plenty powerful and got a good 22 mpg overall in our tests. Both engines use a smooth eight-speed automatic transmission. All-wheel drive is optional. The 300's stately ride, responsive handling, and quiet cabin make it feel like a true luxury car even though it costs thousands less than what luxury brands charge. The Uconnect infotainment system is easy to use. The last freshening added a rotating gear selector knob, and a big information screen in the gauge cluster. Forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking are available.

2011-2019
2011 Redesign Year
A much-improved redesign arrived for 2011, making this car a respectable, large luxury cruiser. The spacious and luxuriously trimmed interior is quiet and offers an accommodating rear seat.
With plenty of trunk space, the 300 is also great for road trips. Its well-tailored cabin is packed with useful features and amenities, including Chrysler's easy-to-use optional Uconnect 8.4 touch-screen infotainment system. This touchscreen infotainment interface is one of the best out there. A very nice eight-speed automatic was added to the V6 in 2012 and extended to the V8s three years later. A full suite of electronic drivers' aids is offered; including forward-collision warning with auto brake, lane-departure warning with assist, and active cruise control. Blind-spot warning with rear-cross-traffic alert is also offered.

2005-2010
2005 Redesign Year
Boldly styled, the Chrysler 300 replaced the 300M for 2005, offering a choice of two V6 engines or, in 300C trim, a strong 340-hp V8. While its look attracted a lot of attention and the interior was exceptionally roomy, the styling also impeded outward visibility and made the cabin feel claustrophobic.
Dynamically, this version of the 300C accelerates well, but drinks fuel and its handling is unexceptional. We found the ride in the V6 Touring trim to be supple and controlled, but the 300C feels stiffer. IIHS side-crash tests without the optional side airbags were poor. Curtain airbags were added as a standard feature for 2010.
