ChryslerThe Chrysler 300 sedan is a big and bold vehicle that makes a statement as it goes down the road. It comes with a powerful engine and many luxury features no matter which model you choose. Here are some reasons to buy the 2017 Chrysler 300 S sedan.

The Engine

Even if you choose the base level Limited trim, the standard engine is a 3.6-liter V6 with 292 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. Upgrade to the 300 S, and this same engine produces 300 horsepower and 264 pound-feet of torque. It comes standard with an eight-speed automatic transmission and rear wheel drive with the option for all-wheel drive. For those who want even more power, you can upgrade to the 5.7-liter V8 engine. This helps the car accelerate even more quickly, getting the 300 S to 60 miles per hour in just 5.8 seconds. It also increases the horsepower to an impressive 363.

The Exterior

The 300 S is the sportier version of the 300 sedans with 20-inch wheels and performance tires. If you choose all-wheel-drive, you’ll get 19-inch wheels, sport-tuned suspension, and rear-wheel drive. Both the RWD and AWD have steering calibration, and you’ll get LED foglights. The front of the Chrysler 300 S features a large trapezoid-shaped grille and the Chrysler winged logo. The back also has a signature look with a built-in spoiler that creates a square look to finish it off.

The Technology

The sporty 300 S comes with a Beats Audio system with ten speakers. The Uconnect system received an upgrade for 2017 and now starts up more quickly and connects faster. You’ll also notice better graphics with higher resolution. The screen is now larger at 8.4 inches and includes navigation gestures similar to your phone, so you can pinch and swipe to manipulate the information. The interface also comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and is equipped with Bluetooth connectivity and two USB ports.

The Interior Space

The 300 S is a family sedan with a huge amount of space inside. It easily fits five passengers, and overall the interior feels well-made. Passengers sitting in the back seat will enjoy the 40 inches of legroom, and in the trunk, you’ll find 16 cubic feet of cargo space. Fold the rear seats flat for even more room.

The Comfortable Ride

One of the best qualities of the 300 S sedan is the smooth and comfortable ride. The transmission shifts quickly and smoothly through the gears and even downshifts effortlessly when going down hills. Chrysler also added two Sport modes: one on the gear selector to enable more aggressive acceleration and shifting through the transmission, and another on the dashboard to add a sport-tuned steering function and activate a temporary paddle-shift mode.

These are just a few of the many reasons to buy the 2017 Chrysler 300 S. This mid-level trim adds some sportier features and driving modes. Combine these with either the V6 or the more power V8 engine and enjoy the ride.
