The 2012 Chrysler 300 has been completely redesigned, but surprisingly that redesign did not include a standard V8. It did however include an upgraded powerful 3.6-liter engine and a new ZF eight-speed automatic transmission. Together creating 292 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque, this is 42 hp and 10 lb-ft more than previous models.
Both the mpg and mph have been improved by keeping the engine close to its power-band sweet spot, and paddle shifters that allow you to shift manually. The 2012 300 has an additional 6 mpg to get an EPA highway rating of 31 versus the older models 25. The exterior was updated to be more sophisticated, the interior more refined, and the cabin quieter. Chrysler specifically remodeled both the 300 S and the 300C models to ensure the Chrysler 300 has everything any driver is looking for.
The 300 S was stripped of any bright chrome and wood to appeal to a younger, broader spectrum of people. Instead body-colored accents have been placed on the fascia and mirrors, a black-chrome grille, black headlight surrounds, and polished aluminum wheels with black accents have all been added. The interior can be finished in either a crisp black or Radar Red leather with black carbon trim. Chrysler added an infotainment system displayed on an 8.4 inch screen and an audio system developed by Dr. Dre. The Beats audio system contains 10-speakers and 522-watts.
The 300 S models will be offered in multiple varieties: one option being an all-wheel drive model powered by either a 292-hp V6 or the 363-hp Hemi V8. If customers opt for rear-drive only they still have the option of either a V6 or a V8. The V6 models will come with the new ZF-sourced eight-speed automatic transmission, while the V8 models come with a five-speed automatic transmission.
The 300C executive series was designed to be lavish, offering only exotic materials usually found in Italian luxury vehicles. The C is available with rear-or all-wheel drive and only paired with a Hemi-V8. Inside you can find all the trimmings including your choice of either Mochachino or Black Poltrona Frau “Folingo” leather accents. The seats are stitched with Nappa leather in a two-tone color combo and the displays are finished by hand to accentuate its natural color of brown or gray wood. On the exterior the chrome trim was replaced and upgraded to platinum chrome and the standard 20-inch rims were polished to shine.
Standing out from the luxury crowd with a notable presence just got easier for owners of the all-new 2011 Chrysler 300. Mopar, Chrysler Group’s service, parts and customer-care brand, will offer eight new custom grilles and six new wheel designs for Chrysler’s flagship sedan.
“Mopar is offering a full menu of grilles and wheels for those looking to customize and personalize their all-new Chrysler 300,” said Pietro Gorlier, President and CEO of Mopar, Chrysler Group LLC. “By itself, the Chrysler 300 makes a statement. Our grilles and wheels provide exclamation points. And unlike other aftermarket offerings, our grilles are specifically tested for aero, cooling and thermal, and our wheels are specifically designed and tested for durability and impact.”
Each grille is designed by Chrysler and provides an exact factory fit and finish. The selection includes a 13-bar grille and a diamond-pattern grille, both constructed of billet aluminum. Both grilles are chrome-plated and polished to a high luster. The 13-bar grille features narrow horizontal, 5mm blades patterned within the traditional Chrysler 300 grille shape that first defined the model more than 55 years ago. The diamond-pattern grille features 154 individual diamond shapes and has a high-chrome polish.
Harkening back to traditional sports cars, the new Mopar grille selection also includes three wire-mesh grilles constructed of 2mm steel wire set in a small-hatch diamond pattern. Mesh grilles will be available in Platinum Chrome, Gloss Black and Bright Chrome finishes.
For a bit more subtlety, two versions of the production grille will also be offered with new finishes. Both bright chrome and black chrome grilles are available.
Mopar will also offer a traditional, heritage type egg-grate grille reminiscent of the grille of the 1955 Chrysler 300, the first in a Chrysler 300 letter-car series. All of Mopar’s custom grilles are inserts and easily fit within the original grille-surround with no modifications required. Grilles may be ordered and installed on all new 2011 Chrysler 300 models and carry a 3-year 36,000 mile warranty when purchased with the vehicle.
In addition to grilles, Mopar will also offer six new customized wheel packages for the Chrysler 300. Wheels are available in 18-inch, 19-inch and 20-inch diameters and include an array of finishes.
Included are two different wheels measuring 20-inch x 8-inch with a 10-spoke design that are constructed of forged aluminum. Finishes include Satin Carbon and painted Gloss Black. A traditional five-spoke design, measuring 20-inch x 8-inch clad in Black Chrome will also be available.
On Chrysler 300 models that are equipped with all-wheel drive, a specific 19-inch, eight-spoke, cast-aluminum design is painted in a Satin Carbon finish.
Two five-spoke 18-inch Rallye Wheels will also be offered. Constructed of cast aluminum, the highly polished version includes black pockets and a polished lip and machined spokes. The 18-inch wheel also is offered in a Gloss Black finish. Both finishes are designed to offer durable, corrosion resistant protection.
