Quick Drive: 2011 Chrysler 300C

The Chrysler 300 has needed an update in a bad way. When it first came out, it was a great looking car that stood out from the crowd. Now though, it’s become more common and the more you see it, the more you pick it apart. Chrysler knew they had to get this one right as it’s really their flagship car. Chrysler has told us before that they opened the redevelopment process up to the consumer. They asked current owners what they’d change and asked customers in the market what they would be looking for. They took the answers they received into consideration and lots of them implemented into the car. Everything except the chassis itself has been touched and revised on this car.

The biggest improvement is to the interior quality of the car. It’s been totally revised. The quality is benchmarked with cars like Mercedes and Audi. It’s also quiet as Chrysler has done many things to keep the road noise out. The other improvement is with the exterior styling. It still stands out on the road, and the new grille looks more classy and stylish than the old. The beltline of the car was lowered making visibility much better.

We drove the V6 model which is now the 3.6 liter, the base engine. It had plenty of power to move this car around. We didn’t get a chance to drive the V8 model, but we should be seeing one before too long for a full review.

Thanks to our friends at Non-Stock Photography for the photos.
