2012 Chrysler 300 Preview With Specification and prices
The 2012 Chrysler 300 is a near-luxury, large sedan from the Fiat-owned Chrysler Corporation. First introduced in 2004 as a 2005 model, the big 300 sedan was born an instant star. Consumers loved the car’s neoclassical, boxy shape and in 2006/2007 alone, Chrysler sold over 260,000 units. But, alas, the recent crisis in the American automotive market–combined with the 300’s aging design–contributed to post-2007 models’ sales to dwindle significantly.
Chrysler 300 Engine
From all indications, the new 300 will come in three flavors—the V6-powered Touring and Limited, and the HEMI V8-powered 300C and 300C All-Wheel Drive. A near jet-engine-powered 300C SRT8 or SRT10 supercar is also floating around the rumor mill.
Chrysler 300 Interior Specifications
Previous-generation 300’s were popular, indeed. The interiors, though? Not so much, especially among automotive journalists and some consumers. For 2012, Chrysler has totally revamped the interior with a new dual-cowl center stack and applied softer, more luxurious materials elsewhere. The wood treatment—another lackluster item of the previous sedan—is reported to look and feel much better; although there’s rumors amuck that faux-wood will still be employed.
