2011 Chrysler 300

The 2011 Chrysler 300 represents the very first redesign of one of the most iconic sedans in the Chrysler fleet. The Chrysler 300’s new styling softens some of the original models’ harder edges through the judicious application of smoothing curves, but the impact of the bold look remains the same. Under the skin, the 300 has seen a more thorough update that gives it a more comfortable suspension with improved road-holding as well as a passenger compartment that better matches the expectations of premium car shoppers thanks to a more comprehensive list of luxury features.

Also new for the 2011 Chrysler 300 is a 3.6-liter base V-6. Known as the Pentastar, this mill provides 292 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque, sent to the rear wheels through a five-speed automatic transmission. Fuel mileage for the new motor shows as 18-mpg city and 27-mpg highway. The 300C’s 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 is of course still available, and its 363 horses and 394 lb-ft of torque are managed by the same automatic tranny, but with the option of either rear or all-wheel drive. Fuel mileage for the larger motor is rated at 16-mpg city and 25-mpg highway.
