Chrysler aimed to take the 300 into luxury territory with the sedan's 2011 redesign, but its aging five-speed automatic held the 300 back, according to Cars.com Executive Editor Joe Wiesenfelder. Model-year 2012's new eight-speed automatic, top-line S trim level and snazzy interior help solidify the 300 as a player in the luxury segment, Wiesenfelder says.
