For some people, the word “sedan” might conjure images of a practical but not particularly inspiring four-door car that is designed to be a family wagon. The 2021 Chrysler 300 is anything but that, as it represents the pinnacle of modern luxury sedan design. While some manufacturers have effectively abandoned the sedan to fade away, Chrysler has reminded us of how impressive and gorgeous these vehicles can be. If you are looking for a four-door car that perfectly blends sophistication, luxury, and performance, then this is the one for you.
One of the most remarkable aspects of the Chrysler 300 is that it has three different engine options available, which is nearly unheard of for a sedan. The standard engine is a great V6, with a higher-tuned V6 available if you want more power; an available V8 engine takes things even further and really delivers on the promise of this model. All of that power is great, but the Chrysler 300 does not stop there: an available all-wheel drive system is something you will not find in the average sedan, but Chrysler has offered it here to take performance to another level.
Inside, you will find a gorgeous interior with a spectacular combination of luxury and technology that provides you with a great overall driving experience. An 8.4-inch infotainment display is standard, something that you would expect from a much larger SUV model, while the available heated front seats and additional options make for a fantastic ride. Standard and available safety features come together to make the Chrysler 300 an incredibly safe option, so you know that you and your loved ones are protected on the road.

Although there is a lot to love about the 2021 Chrysler 300, one of our favorite aspects of this model is the incredible level of performance it has to offer. While most sedans out there have one engine, usually something pretty uninspired, the 300 has three different engine options available, all of which are excellent. This lets you get exactly the right kind of performance for what you want in your luxury sedan.
It all starts with a 3.6L V6 engine that offers 292 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque, which is a great standard engine for a sedan. You will find this engine in the two starting trims for the Chrysler 300; the Touring and the Touring L. The 300S trim also has a 3.6L V6, but its engine boasts 300 hp and 264 lb-ft of torque, thanks in part to a dual exhaust system. This makes the already thrilling Chrysler 300 even more fun to drive, and these models all come with rear-wheel drive standard.
If you are looking for the ultimate level of sedan performance, then the available 300S V8 trim is what you should consider. This features a 5.7L HEMI V8 engine that delivers 363 hp and 394 lb-ft of torque, giving you a truly fantastic driving experience that leaves other four-door vehicles well behind. Whichever engine you choose, it comes paired with a TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission for smooth and efficient shifting that fully takes advantage of the power at your disposal. An automatic all-wheel drive performance system is also available to boost traction and take an amazing time behind the wheel even further.
From the moment you first set eyes on the 2021 Chrysler 300, there is no denying that it has a sleek, stylish design that is instantly captivating. The front grille is large and makes an immediate impression, demonstrating strength and reminding you of the kind of power and performance it has to offer. Its side profile is unmistakably modern yet demonstrates an understanding of past design to create a sedan that stands out in a crowd for all the right reasons.
As a luxury sedan, this is no compact model that will force everyone inside to crunch together; this is a model that understands what it is meant to be. The Chrysler 300 measures nearly 200 inches in overall length, with a wheelbase of 120 inches for great stability and control on the road. Its width at the wheels measures nearly 64 inches across for a nice, wide stance, and it stands 75 inches wide in total. It can measure up to more than 59 inches in height, with three different wheel sizes available: 18-inch, 19-inch, and 20-inch.
Inside the Chrysler 300, you will find room for all of your passengers and anything you need to take with you. Up front, you get nearly 42 inches of legroom and more than 38 inches of headroom, while in the rear seats, your passengers will get more than 40 inches of legroom and almost 38 inches of headroom. The trunk gives you more than 16 cu.ft. of total cargo volume to take advantage of, making this the perfect luxury sedan for getting around town, running errands, or taking a long trip with family or friends.
As a luxury sedan, you expect the 2021 Chrysler 300 to have fantastic details inside, and it certainly does not disappoint. Standard features on the starting trim for the 300 include dual-zone automatic temperature control, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel with mounted controls. You get an 8-way power driver’s seat with 4-way power lumbar adjustment in the starting trim, along with a driver information display in the instrument cluster that includes support for Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and more. The standard model comes with an 8.4-inch infotainment display, a 6-speaker sound system, and cloth seating.
While the standard features are certainly excellent, if you really want to surround yourself with lavishness and advanced technology, then consider one of the 300S trims. In terms of luxury, the Chrysler 300S models feature piano black and satin chrome details, including piano black bezels for that extra touch of sophistication. These models include additional interior illumination, along with paddle shifters on the steering wheel and other refined details.
The 300S models also have an 8-way power front-passenger seat along with the driver’s seat, plus Nappa leather-trimmed heated front seats with accent stitching. These models have a 6-speaker Alpine sound system standard, with a 9-speaker Alpine system available, plus available navigation as part of the infotainment system. The available dual-pane panoramic sunroof takes the interior one final step further, providing you with a gorgeous view of the sky overhead while you enjoy the road.
Amazing performance and bold luxury are both great, but the most important thing about any vehicle is how well it can help keep you safe on the road. While nothing can replace cautious, defensive driving, the features of your vehicle can assist you in those moments when the unexpected happens. The 2021 Chrysler 300 is an incredibly safe vehicle with some of the best standard and available features we have seen in a sedan.
Standard safety features on every model of the 300 include active front head restraints to help you avoid neck injuries in a sudden stop, as well as a comprehensive airbag system throughout the interior. Electronic stability control with all-speed traction control is also standard, as is a rear backup camera and a tire pressure monitoring display that keeps you aware of how your vehicle is doing and when your tires need air.
Available safety features on the Chrysler 300 take the standard systems a step further to make for a great ride that helps keep you and your loved ones safe. While cruise control is a standard feature, there is also an available adaptive cruise control system that can adjust to traffic speeds, as well as an available full-speed forward collision warning system with active braking to help you stop faster in an emergency. The available SafetyTec Plus Group also includes advanced brake assist, rain-sensing automatic windshield wipers, and a lane departure warning with lane keep assist to help you stay on the road and in your lane.
