The Chrysler 300 has been among us for some time now, with different options available and engines ranging from 2-liter 4 cylinders to the luxurious 300C powered by a 363 HP 5.7-liter Hemi V8. They’re now introducing a new version of their Luxury Edition, a V6 powered 300.
The car is propelled by the 292 HP 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine that powers its regular sibling, connected to a 8-speed automatic transmission, rear-wheel drive and optionally 4×4. Just like its bigger brother, it boasts a full-leather interior and a bunch of luxurious extras throughout.
Mainly, the V6’s interior is pretty similar to the Hemi version of the 300 Luxury Edition, with extravagant leather treatment for the central console, dashboard, armrest, steering wheel and door panels, plus lovely two-tone Mocachino or black seats, beautifully covered in Nappa leather, featuring double-mode ventilation, double-mode heat-system for both front and rear occupants and 12-way power adjustable front seats.
Apart from all these lavish leather use, we also need to mention the infotainment system with 8.4-inch LCD touchscreen and navigation system, power-adjustable steering wheel, pedals and column, dual heated/cooled cup holders, ambient lit foot well lighting, LED-illuminated instrument cluster with driver-selectable colors and interior door handles, front and rear map pockets, premium carpeted trunk mat, die-cast paddle shifters, natural Pore Mocha wood trim in matte finish and chrome door sills.
The exterior of the car boasts exterior mirror caps and door handles with platinum chrome fascia accents and 19-inch (4×4) or 20-inch polished-face (rear-wheel drive) alloy wheels. The sales of both the V6 and the Hemi V8 will start during February 2012 with manufacturer-suggested retail price of between $40,145 and $45,245, allowing us to say this is a true bargain.
