The Chrysler 300 isn’t exactly a new model being released all the way back in 2011 but it is a very interesting car nonetheless. The 2016 Chrysler 300 is going to be a mid-life refresh of the car which is going to make it a bit more competitive until 2018 when a brand new model which is going to use a new platform is planned. Until then though, this facelift is going to add a slightly different styling, improved engines in terms of fuel economy and power as well as a more comfortable interior, which will make the new Chrysler 300 2016 more competitive on the car market.
2016 Chrysler 300 redesign
On the interior Chrysler is going to keep their 300 pretty classy with leather offered as standard as well as a new 8-inch navigation unit which directly replaces the old 5-inch model. This will also offer the possibility of using it as an infotainment system rather than just an information screen. Further improvements will include a new type of parking sensors which are going to offer a much better view of the car’s position in the traffic.
The exterior of the 2016 Chrysler 300 will only change for the S model which is going to get all of its inserts in black. This will also offer a selection of unique 18 inch black anodized aluminum wheels with high performance tires that are going to give the car a really nice stance.
Chrysler 300 2016 specs
Engine wise we might finally see the diesel offering for the US model but this is unlikely considering they only offered in Europe so far. Just like before, the base Chrysler 300 2016 will be powered by a 300 horsepower 3.6-liter V6 while the more powerful version of the car is going to get a 5.7-liter V8 which is likely to see a power bump to around 390 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque. Both of them will come with the same 8-speed automatic and a standard rear-wheel-drive system with the possibility of choosing all-wheel-drive system. A more fuel efficient model won’t come on this generation but rather on the next model which is going to be released in the late 2017 or early 2018.
2016 Chrysler 300 release date and price
Chrysler is also going to add a Sport model to the range which is going to get a different tune for its chassis. This will add stiffer suspension, different brakes with bigger rotors as well as 18 inch wheels with high performance tires rather than the usual low rolling resistance ones. The Chrysler 300 2016 release date is most likely going to be in May 2015 while the showroom availability will start in the late 2015. The price will remain mostly the same with the price for the base 2016 Chrysler 300 around $33,000, which is a fair amount of money for a premium sedan.
