2018 Chrysler 300
The 2018 Chrysler 300 is essentially the same as the model from the previous year, except for the reorganization of a few features. On the other hand, the V8 engine offered in the past is now only accessible in two of the various trim levels.
The 2018 Chrysler 300 exudes easily cool vibrations because it is upright but laid-back. After all these years, the shape has not lost its sophistication. The 300 has wide shoulders, well-tailored sheet metal, and a grille that integrates well with the overall design.
The 300 body wraps around the cabin giving a gloomy impression when it is trimmed out in black, but brightening up when it is trimmed out in natural wood and quilted leather.
The 2018 Chrysler 300 comes in 5 trim levels:
- Touring L
The engine that comes standard on the 2018 Chrysler 300 provides the power and endurance necessary to keep this vehicle operating at a high pace for an extended period of time. Even though certain trim levels have a slightly lower power rating, the standard engine in the 300 can deliver a remarkable horsepower rating of 300. Additionally, the engine is capable of producing around 264 foot-pounds worth of overall torque.
When running on standard unleaded fuel, the Chrysler basic model achieves an EPA-estimated combined 21 miles per gallon. The internal mechanics have an eight-speed shiftable automatic gearbox that comes standard with an all-wheel-drive system.
Design, Comfort, and Quality
The 300 has luxurious finishes in addition to its exceptional space. The natural open-pore wood trim and leather door panels make the area warm and welcoming. The rear spoiler, side sills, and dynamic front fascia give the 2018 Chrysler 300S a very racy appearance. And, the 300S’ steering and bushings have been properly modified. It also includes bigger anti-roll bars and improved spring rates. When turning, the all-season Firehawk GT tires provide an excellent grip on the road.
The inside of the 300 is just as spacious as the outside, making it suitable for taller passengers. For someone with a smaller frame like me, the setup makes the driving position slightly awkward. However, the seats are easily large enough to accommodate a person who fits the stereotypical description of an “American-sized” person.
The performance-bolstered seats that come standard on the 300S model are initially comfy. But, after many hours of driving, the lower bolsters became wearisome. The leather-wrapped steering wheel is very comfortable. And Chrysler has also padded the areas that are most likely to be used as armrests or elbow rests.
Hill-start assist, a rearview camera, and a driver knee airbag is standard equipment for every Chrysler 300 car. There’s also an available technology option package. This technology includes forward-collision warnings with automated emergency braking, blind-spot monitors, active lane control, adaptive cruise control, and automatic high lights.
