This 2015 Chrysler 300 Limited delivers great acceleration, power and handling for a big vehicle. Its 3.6 liter V6 24 - Valve VVT engine delivers at all speeds. The 8 speed transmission with e-shifter offers smooth finesse and performance for a very comfortable ride. With a 3.6 liter V6 and an eight speed automotive transmission with an electrical shifter, this big handsome American Sedan more than holds its own - it's elegantly fast, let's call it. Though this is a heavy car, the 300 Limited never, ever feels sluggish or overburdened. The steering is quite well balanced with absolutely no correction of any kind needed while you are driving.
Fuel Economy
18 city miles and 27 highway miles per gallon; 21 overall. 18/27, with 21 miles per gallon overall.
The Car
In the full size sedan market, we love the 300 and its stylized acumen, agility and quiet performance. Value-priced at the opening base model, it is cavernous and luxurious for five adults. In the AWD model we drove, it delivers precise handling and assured command of the road. Modern looking and sophisticated, this vehicle has a lot to offer under $40K, with its technology and safety features.

Top it off with some great functionality like the 60/40 folding seats and one of the industry's best sized trunks in it class.

We would like to see the 300's post-purchase 'reliability' scores increase - that remains an area of true upside for this audience - and Chrysler.
Truly the last American classic luxury car, and a damned good one at that. Elegant, straight edge styling with a classic, squared off roof is beautifully done and commands attention from onlookers. Truly looks the part with a nice, dark navy or black paint job.

By the way, we continue to applaud Chrysler for UConnect, clearly the easiest infotainment, climatic system we've ever seen. We had our Bluetooth going in about five seconds. No muss. No fuss. No temper tantrums like we've had using this system in other cars.

Also, the construction, fit and finish all were commendable on our test car.

Electronic stability control, driver inflatable knee bolster airbag, electronic roll mitigation, all speed traction control and lot of airbags - too many to name.

Aesthetics & Styling
Sophisticated adjectives can't do justice to one of the industries hottest looking, uber-grill defining vehicles: Hot. Chromed. Amped Styling. Complimented it with 19" Aluminum polished wheels and we love test-driving the 300 Limited. Dual Rear Exhaust with bright tips. New this year is a brawnier, larger and more intricate looking grille, and some upgrades inside the car itself, among other things. It's a good-looking car, at least to my eyes. But I'm pretty sure the current look will be gone by the boards in a year or so from now before the car begins to look outdated.
