The Chrysler 300 Remains a Top Pick in the Luxury Class
The bold fascia and strong body of the Chrysler 300 makes it one of the most striking full-sized sedans on the market. Since its debut in 2004, the 300 has helped to usher luxury cars into a new era. The 2013 model of the Chrysler 300 is currently available to Naperville residents at DuPage Dodge Chrysler Jeep.
DuPage is located in Glendale Heights, on E North Ave, between Bloomingdale and Glen Ellyn. We invite you to stop by and see why the 300 has remained one of the most popular choices for high-end sedans.
History of the Chrysler 300
The 300 was designed to sit on the Chrysler LX platform, a rear wheel drive system. The platform borrowed features from the 2003 to 2009 Mercedes-Benz E Class. When the Chrysler 300 debuted in 2004 for the 2005 model year, it received praise from all around. Awards included:
- The 2005 Car of the Year from Motor Trend
- The 2005 and 2006 Ten Best List from Car and Driver
- The 2005 North American Car of the Year and Canadian Car of the Year
In 2011, a redesigned 300 was introduced. The body had received a complete makeover and the wagon body style was discontinued. The new 300 also featured new LEDs in the headlights and taillights, as well as a new horizontally slotted fascia.
The Current Chrysler 300
The 2013 300 model comes in several trim levels, with a variety of different power options and features. The high-end Chrysler 300 SRT8 performance model comes equipped with a 6.4L HEMI V8 engine with 470hp and 470 lb-ft of torque. It also features a color screen Electronic Vehicle Information Center that keeps track of your performance.
Like last year's model, the 2013 Chrysler 300 was recognized as a Top Safety Pick from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. To qualify, vehicles must receive exemplary marks in crash tests.
