Latest talks suggest that the 2015 Chrysler 300 will come with some really nice changes and that we might even get the redesigned model. Currently these are only rumors and we can say that the 2014th model was delivered with no significant differences compared to its predecessor.
Even if the refreshed version comes to the market we do not expect anything revolutionary. Slight adjustments to the styling are possible but most changes will be offered with the equipment that we will be getting. This means that more standard equipment will be offered making it richer even in the base version.
2015 Chrysler 300 Redesign
Looking at the exterior and design of this car we can immediately say that it comes with quite unique looks. At the front we have quite aggressive but still refined grille that improve the road presence of this large sedan. You will definitely notice it on the road and we are pretty sure that many will turn their heads looking at it.
This model comes in six trim levels that are different in terms of equipment and engines that are available. Base trim is the 300 and it also comes in 300S, 300C, 300C John Varvatos Luxury Edition, SRT8 Core and SRT8. Even the base model is offered with almost 300 hp and 17 inch alloys and these numbers jump much higher if the higher trim level is chosen.
Features like dual zone climate, heated front seats, eight way power driver seat, keyless ignition and entry, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, 8.4 inch touchscreen and similar are standard from the base model. Higher trims have more power but also added luxury in the interior. Central console is dominated with large touchscreen that allows you to control all the most important systems but also will display thins like fuel consumption, range, temperature, navigation and similar.
As a standard we have the 3.6 liter V6 unit that offers 292 hp and 260 pound feet of torque and this engine is also delivered in 300S trim but in that case it produces 300 hp. When combined with eight speed automatic transmission it needs about 6.9 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in rear wheel drive setup but AWD model will need 7.1 seconds for the same sprint. According to EPA we are getting 19/31/23 mpg for a rear wheel drive model and the AWD version will return 18/27/21 mpg.

Those that need more power will need to choose the 5.7 liter V8 unit that pumps out 363 hp and 394 lb-ft of torque that will return 16/25/19 with rear wheel drive and 15/23/18 with AWD system. Top performances are offered with 6.4 liter V8 unit that produces 470 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque. Power is transferred through a five speed automatic that also comes with paddle shifters. This version of 2015 Chrysler 300 is capable of returning 14/23/17 mpg and accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 4.7 seconds.
