Our Take on the 2005 Chrysler 300C

Our Take

Chrysler has marketed automobiles under the "300" designation off and on for half a century. The 300 series premiered in 1955 with a high-performance hardtop coupe that held a 300-horsepower Hemi V-8 engine.

Notable Features

  • RWD layout
  • Hemi V-8
  • Available all-wheel drive
  • Electronic Stability Program
  • 18-inch tires

Trims Explained

When talking about cars, “trims” is a way of differentiating between different versions of the same model. Typically, most start with a no-frills, or “base” trim, and as features are added, or a different engine, drivetrain (gas vs. hybrid, for example) or transmission are included, trim names change and prices go up.

It’s important to carefully check the trims of the car you’re interested in to make sure that you’re getting the features you want, or that you’re not overpaying for features you don’t want.
