What's New on the 2014 Chrysler 300?
There are no significant changes to the Chrysler 300 for the 2014 model year.
How Does the 2014 Chrysler 300 Compare to Other Full-Size Sedans?
The full-size sedan class is making a bit of a resurgence, and the 2014 Chrysler 300 stands out for its comfort, refinement and intuitive tech features. Those who opt for the SRT performance variant will be getting a great value based on all that this vehicle can do. There aren't many competitors, but the Hyundai Genesis R-Spec stacks up quite well. However, it doesn't quite match the 300's handling or multimedia system.
What Features on the 2014 Chrysler 300 Are Most Important?
Under the hood, the 2014 Chrysler 300 is equipped with a 3.6-liter V-6 engine producing 292 horsepower. The 300S models generate 300 hp. A 363-hp, 5.7-liter V-8 engine is also available. SRT models feature a 6.4-liter V-8 engine that delivers 470 hp. The Base and S trims are equipped with an eight-speed automatic transmission, and the SRT Core and SRT8 come with a five-speed automatic.
Significant standard features include LED daytime running lights, dual chrome exhaust tips, 17-inch wheels, heated front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control and an 8.4-inch touchscreen. Available features include high-intensity-discharge headlights, a dual-pane panoramic moonroof, heated and cooled cupholders, a heated steering wheel and power-adjustable pedals.
Significant standard safety features include side-impact airbags for the front seats, front and rear side curtain airbags, a driver's knee airbag, active front head restraints, antilock brakes and an electronic stability system. Available safety amenities are a blind spot warning system, rear cross-path detection, forward collision warning, front and rear parking sensors, SmartBeam headlights and a backup camera.
Should I Buy the 2014 Chrysler 300?
The V-6 engine is strong, and the 300 delivers a refined and comfortable ride. The transmission leaves a little to be desired, as it's slow to kick down under full throttle. The brakes are also a bit spongy, and passengers may feel claustrophobic in the backseat due to the car's design, despite having plenty of legroom and headroom.
