Chrysler long ago posited that a full-size near-luxury car needn’t blend into the background, so it designed its flagship sedan, the 300, to stand out in a crowd. The 300 is particularly handsome in its sporty S trim, with meaty 20-inch wheels, smoke-tinted headlamps, and a menacing black-mesh grille, but even the luxury-oriented C trim carries itself with swagger unique to this class. The 300 has been modernized over the years with the latest in infotainment and active safety technology, but the design and materials in its spacious interior are beginning to reveal this beauty’s true age. For some, the 300’s shortcomings will be all too obvious, but for buyers seeking a return of the good old days, it might be just the ticket.
What's New for 2017?
Chrysler’s flagship sedan rolls into 2017 with a number of improvements and new appearance packages. The S Model Appearance package includes a unique front bumper and side sills, LED fog lights, and a rear spoiler, and an interior package adds sport seats with perforated leather. There's also an Alloy Edition package for the 300S, with dark-bronze exterior trim, black leather seats with caramel-colored contrasting stitching, and Liquid Titanium interior accent trim. The rest of the lineup benefits from an upgraded infotainment system that now provides Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.

Engine, Transmission, and Performance
The Chrysler 300 is unique in the large-car segment for its rear-wheel-drive layout and available Hemi V-8 engine. All-wheel drive is optional, but only with the standard 3.6-liter V-6 engine that produces 292 horsepower in 300 Limited and 300C models but makes eight more ponies in the 300S. The available 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 cranks out a healthy 363 horsepower and 396 lb-ft of torque. Both engines mate to a buttery smooth eight-speed automatic transmission. The Hemi V-8 plus rear-wheel-drive architecture give the 300 performance street cred that its class rivals can’t match. Handling is surprisingly confident considering the Chrysler’s size and weight, but sport-tuned 300S models might take the sportiness too far for some tastes. Body roll is well-controlled, and the chassis is willing to play—as long as you don’t get overly aggressive.

Interior, Comfort, and Cargo
Abundant standard luxury features create a value proposition for the 300, with even more pampering available as you climb through the trims levels. However, dated interior design and the questionable quality of some interior materials are clues to the 300’s age. Even base 300 Limited models come with such luxury items as power front seats with heat and adjustable lumbar support, dual-zone automatic climate control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and seats, and illuminated cupholders. Higher trims add heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, a heated steering wheel, and a power-adjustable steering column. Trunk capacity is average, but the 300’s large back seat provides much more space for hauling. In-cabin storage space for small items is a bit limited.
Infotainment and Connectivity
An intuitive infotainment system with quick responses and a comprehensive list of connectivity features make the 300 an easy car to live with, even though onboard Wi-Fi is notably missing from the options list. We appreciate Chrysler’s Uconnect infotainment system for its ease of use, intuitive menu layout, and snappy performance. The standard 8.4-inch touchscreen features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Other standard features include Bluetooth connectivity, two USB ports, a six-speaker audio system, and SiriusXM satellite radio. Navigation is optional on the 300S and standard on the 300C, and the top trim can also be equipped with a 19-speaker Harman Kardon stereo.

Chrysler 300 Expert Review
New for 2017
The Chrysler 300 gets a thorough round of upgrades, focusing on the electronics suite and interior and exterior appearance. Among the updates are a new fourth-generation Uconnect infotainment system with smartphone integration, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, an upgraded 8.4-inch touchscreen that now recognizes multi-touch and swipe gestures, a new Sport package for both interior and exterior that adds more aggressive style, an updated interior for the 300S, and an Alloy Edition Package that adds a Dark Bronze exterior to blacked-out details and Nappa leather appointments inside.
The Chrysler 300 is a full-size premium sedan that sits above the Chrysler 200, and alongside the Pacifica minivan in Chrysler's abbreviated lineup.
Just two engines are offered in the 2017 Chrysler 300. The base engine is a 292-hp, 260-lb-ft (or 300 hp and 264 lb-ft in 300S trim) 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 that earns 19/30/23 mpg city/highway/combined on the EPA cycle, or 18/27/21 mpg with all-wheel drive. An upgrade to a 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 is available on 300S, 300C, and 300C Platinum rear-drive models. The V-8 makes 363 hp and 396 lb-ft, and gets an EPA-estimated mileage quote of 16/25/19 mpg. Both engines come standard with an eight-speed automatic, though 300S, 300C, and 300C Platinum models have an optional upgrade to an eight-speed automatic with Auto Stick sport mode and die cast paddle shifters.
Rear-wheel drive is the default for both V6 and V8-powered cars, but all-wheel drive is available only on V-6 models. Four trim lines are available: 300 Limited, 300S, 300C, and 300C Platinum. The range-topping 300C Platinum model receives some unique features, including Platinum Chrome finishes, 20-inch polished aluminum wheels, sport mode with paddle shifters, two-tone Indigo/Linen interior, and quilted and perforated Nappa leather seats and door panels, and hand-sanded natural-pore wood, among other upgrades.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) awards the 2017 Chrysler 300 an overall crash rating of four stars (out of five), with sub-scores of four stars for frontal impact, five stars for side impact, and four stars for rollover safety. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) hasn't yet tested the 2017 Chrysler 300, but awards the nearly identical 2016 model top scores of "good" in all categories except for small overlap front impact, which rates only "marginal."
What We Think
With the death of the SRT version of the Chrysler 300 in 2015, we lost much of what we loved most in the 300, but not everything. As we noted in our First Drive, "Although we mourn the loss of the under-appreciated (to the tune of less than 1 percent of all 300 sales) 300 SRT, the 5.7-liter Hemi is plenty quick in its own right."
In our first drive of the Chrysler 300, we also found the V-6 models to be "perfectly quick," and noted that it's "plenty strong enough to satisfy the average driver from light to light."
But despite the strong engines remaining in the 2017 Chrysler 300 lineup, the car's handling remains an issue. It's big, it's heavy, and it feels like it. The suspension does its best to control the big, imposing body, but ultimately can't hide the truth. The seats, likewise, are comfortable, but not well-suited to spirited driving due to a lack of bolstering. While this is enough to discourage truly spirited driving, the 300 comports itself well when driven properly, and is fun on a good road.
We've found fit and finish to be very good in the Chrysler 300s we've tested, with vibrant color schemes that stand out from the competition. We also found the driver assistance systems fitted to the Chrysler 300 to be very good, especially the adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping assist.
The optional Sport mode automatic transmission on 2017 Chrysler 300S, 300C, and 300C Platinum models cuts shift times from 400 milliseconds to just 250 ms.

The uniform jacket was reliably disguised under the jacket, she was wearing a strict gray skirt, but only unusually short, under which there were. Also even shorter panties (so that they would not accidentally peep out from under the skirt). As often happened when she was in a skirt, several men were on the benches opposite her.
