The 2023 Chrysler 300C, powered by a 6.4L HEMI engine with 485 horsepower, is being released in 2023 as a tribute to the almost 70-year history of the Chrysler 300. Ahead of the 2022 North American International Auto Show media day, the 2023 Chrysler 300C was unveiled in front of the Spirit of Detroit monument in downtown Detroit.
The 2023 Chrysler 300C, which is powered by a 6.4L HEMI engine, is a salute to the Chrysler 300 and the end of an era; manufacture of the Chrysler 300 will cease after the 2023 model year. The Chrysler 300 has stood for enduring American elegance and performance since its 1955 debut and 2005 rebirth.
What You Need to Know About the 2023 Chrysler 300C
Only 2,000 of the Chrysler 300C’s unique, limited-production models will be made available in the United States and Canada in 2023, paying tribute to the 300 models.
Engine, Transmission, and Drivetrain
The final version of America’s big, bold sedan is even larger and bolder thanks to the 6.4L V-8 HEMI engine, which produces 485 horsepower and 475 lb. ft. of torque and accelerates the 300C from 0 to 60 mph in only 4.3 seconds. The 2023 Chrysler 300 has a peak top speed of 160 mph and can complete the quarter-mile in 12.4 seconds.
The TorqueFlite eight-speed gearbox, which has shift times of 160 milliseconds, maximizes fuel efficiency while providing maximum performance with the 392-cu.-in. naturally aspirated engine. Red four-piston Brembo brakes, a 3.09 limited-slip differential, active damping suspension, and black, rounded exhaust tips that complement an active exhaust system that produces a powerful, throaty sound are further performance characteristics.
The 2023 Chrysler 300C rides on 20-by-9-inch forged wheels with all-season performance tires, and a new version of the tri-color 300C insignia adorns the grille and rear decklid. In addition to the black headlamps and taillamp bezels, the exterior has black chrome accents on the grille and lower fascia. The 300C comes in three exterior color options: Gloss Black, Velvet Red, and Bright White.
The new 300C logo is engraved on the front seats’ black Laguna leather, which is further enhanced by special silver stitching. Along with carbon fiber and Piano Black accents on the inside bezels, silver stitching is also seen on the doors and leather instrument panel.
The 8.4-inch Uconnect infotainment system, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay are included as standard equipment on the 2023 Chrysler 300C, which also has a high-end 19-speaker Harman Kardon audio system. Among the standard safety features are advanced braking assist, lane departure warning plus, and full-speed collision warning plus. Comfort amenities include a heated steering wheel and heated and ventilated front seats.
The manufacturer’s recommended retail price (MSRP) in the United States for the 2023 Chrysler 300C is $55,000.
