The 2021 Chrysler 300 sedan has been able to stand the test of time and its been doing so since 2005 due to its powerful V8 engine option, all-wheel-drive, and enjoyable cabin ride. As with each model year, new technological updates and small design hints are added to make sure that this old-timer keeps it groovy.
New features to look forward to encompass more goodies on the optional Popular and Comfort packages, Red S Appearance Package becoming standard additive, and new safety features for the Touring L trim.
5.7-liter Hemi V8
Avail. Engine Type
The base engine for the present 300 is the critically acclaimed Pentastar 3.6-liter V6. On the Touring and Touring L models, it rides on 292 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. It also makes 300 horses and 264 lb-ft of torque on the 300S; The excellent amount of torque is the source of the great effectiveness of merging and passing. This capable engine is also used on a wide range of other FCA vehicles for its power and dependability.
Up next, we have the big and bad 5.7-liter Hemi V8 making headway with 363 horsepower and 394 lb-ft of torque, serving as an option in the 300 S. This animal partners up with a rear-wheel-drive system, however, it does not have an available all-wheel-drive, since that is only meant for the Touring and Touring L trims. The V8 merits off an 8-speed automatic, and even allows thrill-seekers to make use of the manual shift. While both engines work fine using regular unleaded fuel, it’s advised to use Premium for the V8.
