About Chrysler 300C
The exterior features revised sheet metal, thinner roof pillars, a more raked windshield, bi-xenon HID projector headlights, LED daytime running strips integrated into the headlights, new LED taillights, and a horizontally slotted front grille with an updated version of the Chrysler winged brand emblem. A dual-pane panoramic sunroof and 20-inch polished aluminum wheels were available as options.
The 2011 model year introduced four new trim levels: Touring, Limited, 300C, and 300C AWD. The Touring and Limited trim levels included the Pentastar V6, while the 300C line included the 5.7 Hemi as standard.
At the 2011 New York International Auto Show, Chrysler debuted a new 300C Executive Series luxury trim level alongside a new 300S trim level. The 300S’s sporty styling included a black grille and headlamps, 20-inch polished-face aluminum rims with black painted pockets, a 10-speaker Beats by Dr. Dre sound system, and paddle shifters located on the steering wheel. From 2011 to 2014, the Executive/Luxury Series was also marketed in Europe, where it was relaunched as the Lancia Thema.
The 300C and Limited trim levels were eliminated for the 2021 model year, leaving only the Touring, Touring L, and 300S, which included the previous year’s Red S Appearance Package as standard.
At the 2011 New York International Auto Show, an SRT variant was debuted, powered by a 6.4-liter 392 Hemi V8 engine.
Additionally, the 6.4-liter 392 Hemi engine is used in various Chrysler Group SRT vehicles, including the Dodge Charger and Challenger. With 470 horsepower (350 kW), the new 300 SRT accelerates from 0 to 60 mph (97 km/h) in less than four seconds.
Along with the increased power, the SRT features unique exterior trim, including a lowered front fascia, larger exhaust tips, body color trim rather than chrome, and huge 20-inch (508 mm) aluminum wheels. Additionally, the car receives a lowered, more sporty suspension arrangement and a sizable Brembo braking package.
The 300 SRT (or SRT8) was discontinued in the United States for the 2015 model year, but continues to be marketed in Australia and the Middle East. Along with the BMW M5, certain Australian police forces employ the 300 SRT as a patrol/pursuit vehicle. Contrary to previous comments by Chrysler, the 300 SRT is still available in both left- and right-hand drive configurations internationally.
Three television ads were developed as part of the 2011 Chrysler 300 advertising campaign. “Homecoming” featured Detroit Lions defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh retracing his humble beginnings through his wet birthplace of Portland, Oregon, in his new 2011 Chrysler 300. John Varvatos sought inspiration for “Attitude” at a Brooklyn record store, carrying the album under his arm and into his Chrysler 300. Dr. Dre’s “Good Things” video featured him driving through the streets of Los Angeles in a 2012 Chrysler 300 equipped with Beats by Dre.
The “See It Through” television commercial featured the Chrysler 300 and prominent Detroit residents, including former Detroit Lion Ndamukong Suh, as well as a 1917 poem titled “See It Through” by Edgar Guest.
