What Is the 2021 Chrysler 300?
The five-seat Chrysler 300 is one of the few remaining traditional, full-size sedans from a mainstream brand. Power comes from a standard 3.6-liter V-6 engine that makes 292 horsepower (300 hp in the 300S trim level) or an optional 363-hp, 5.7-liter V-8. Both engines work with an eight-speed automatic transmission. V-6 versions are available with rear- or all-wheel drive, while V-8 models are RWD-only. Competitors include the Toyota Avalon and Dodge Charger.

Should I Buy the 2021 Chrysler 300?
More and more consumers may be flocking to SUVs, but for those who like the big, comfy feel of a full-size sedan, the Chrysler 300 fits the bill quite well. While the 300 emphasizes comfort at the expense of handling performance, its sibling, the Dodge Charger, puts more focus on performance.
