What Is the 2014 Chrysler 300?

The 2014 Chrysler 300 is a full-size sedan with seating for five. It is available in four trim levels: Base, S, SRT Core and SRT8. Rear-wheel drive is standard, and all-wheel drive is available. It competes against vehicles like the Ford TaurusChevrolet Impala and Toyota Avalon.

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.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
