With a fresh but familiar face, an aggressive all-American profile, and more features for the dollar than ever, the 2011 Chrysler 300 presents a compelling argument for looking beyond Acura and Lexus for your next upscale sedan. Priced from just $27,995, you might even save some cash in the process.
The standard 2011 300 offers a wide range of standard equipment, including the 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine rated at 292 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. It'll burn regular gasoline or E85 at your pleasure, and it shifts gears with a five-speed auto with manual mode. Uconnect Touch with USB/iPod support is also standard, meaning there's no $4,000 upgrade package to get the large-screen infotainment system you're sure to want.
Stepping up to the 300 Limited, the price jumps to $31,995, but equipment improves to include Uconnect Voice Command with Bluetooth, Alpine six-speaker 276-watt audio system, 18-inch alloy wheels, leather trimmed seats, and heated front seats. The 300 Limited is also eligible for the Luxury Group add-on package, which bumps the price to $35,245 but adds a host of wood trim options, heated and leather-wrapped steering wheel, 12-way adjustable front seats and much more.
The 300C, the top-of-the-range model, starts from $38,995 and includes the Luxury Group plus an upgrade under the hood to the familiar 5.7-liter HEMI V-8, rated at 363 horsepower. All-wheel drive is also available on the 300C, and that model is the first to break into the $40,000 range at $41,415.
