2015 Chrysler 300 V-6 AWD Reviews
As base autos go, the 2015 Chrysler 300 Limited does not make you feel like you settled as the least-expensive 300 oozes check appeal, for the cheap seats. Outside around town? Odds are great the valet will park the 300 (particularly one dressed in dark grey or black) near the front with items imported from someplace other than Detroit. Freshened a smidge for 2015, the flagship sedan of Chrysler wears the identical primary badboy, Bentley esque appear it brought - 2005 version, generation, albeit somewhat evolved.
The rewind that is classic continues in. Although a large and easy-to-use 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen infotainment system and turn-knob shifter for the regular eight-speed automatic transmission add a dose of modernity, the soil-simple HVAC and radio volume and tuning knobs, wide and level (but comfy) leather-clad seats, and refined analog clock place a classic disposition. Stargazers take note-- 70 degrees, or almost level recline. A cool-blue-lit speedo and analog tach flank a principal screen that shows current equipment, fuel level, coolant temperature, a compass, exterior temperature, and a digital speedometer. The feel is Rat Pack revisited, appropriate for donning your fedora that is best, stashing the clubs in the capacious 16-cubic foot trunk, cueing Siriusly Sinatra on satellite radio through the audio system up, and heading out for 18 holes.
In the event the road repaired and to the golf course is buckled, understand the 300 handles such impacts in stride. Our all-wheel-drive 300 Small test car came standard with the Touring suspension with hydraulic bushings which help smooth the ride on finance highways and byways and monotube shocks. Back-drive Limiteds come shod with 215/65-17 tires, but AWD variants get updated to more large-looking 235/55-19s. New fostered variable-effort steering adds attempt with speed and contains organic self-focusing. With 0.80 grams of lateral handle, our 300 test auto offered similar stick as other full size sedans examined lately, such as the Chevrolet Impala V-6 and the Cadillac XTS AWD. The Chrysler's body structure that is large feels large and strong, as well as the cottage is silent, helped in part for the windshield and front-side glass by acoustic lamination.
The turn-knob electronic shifter requires some getting used to, but it is more natural to use with shift buttons than some rivals' latest layouts. The particular shifts, nevertheless, could be clearer, for heightening the sensitivity of the drivetrain and steering system, as well as the Small model does not have a Sport style.
Our Granite Crystal Metallic 300 Limited seemed Brooks Brothers sharp using linen inside and its black. Sure, the budget-Bentley moniker might be a stretch, but there is no denying the existence of this auto.
