2010 Chrysler 300 review: Our expert's take

Vehicle Overview
The 300 comes with a choice of two V-6s, while the 300C has Hemi V-8 power. That car is listed separately in the Cars.com Research section. The 300 is offered in Touring, Touring Signature and Limited trim levels for rear-wheel-drive models and Touring Signature and Limited for the all-wheel-drive 300. Chrysler 300 competitors include the Ford Taurus and Chevrolet Impala.

New for 2010
There are no significant changes for 2010.

Exterior
The 300 looks bold and imposing, flaunting a distinctive shape for a sedan. There are optional automatic headlamps. Base models have heated mirrors, and there are optional auto-dimming, fold-away mirrors with memory features.

  • 17- or 18-inch wheels
  • Standard power trunklid release
  • Optional power sunroof

Under the Hood
Two V-6 engines are available, and the optional all-wheel-drive system features Chrysler’s active transfer case and front-axle disconnect that automatically disengages the front axle from the drivetrain when all-wheel drive is not needed, in an effort to increase fuel economy.

  • 178-horsepower, 2.7-liter V-6 with 190 pounds-feet of torque
  • 250-hp, 3.5-liter V-6 with 250 pounds-feet of torque

Very reliable getting me everywhere I needed to go

Very satisifed with the engine as it currently has 175k miles yet it never broke down on me anywhere. However there are many broken parts on the interior such as vents, armrest console, windows power and such, The four exterior door handles also broke, However I still call her my Black Beauty,

Really nice car, enjoyable to drive and to ride in, lots of room, style, luxury and speed. It is our extra car, otherwise we would keep it!

4.7

Very dependable

The car is good. I added some things to make it better in my opinion. However, I have had no issues with it and it has a lot of life left.
