The cooperation of Fiat and Chrysler continues to expand the range of options available for the new Chrysler 300 sedan, and in quite specific “budget” direction. From February next year the sedan with the configuration of Luxury Edition will be equipped with more affordable engine.
Now this version of Chrysler 300 sedan is equipped with a top engine – a 5.7-liter V8 Hemi. But the appearance of the possibility of installing the six-cylinder engine will reduce the price of the sedan by 2500 dollars in the U.S. market. This Chrysler 300 gets a modern 3.6-liter Pentastar, which develops 292 horsepower, aggregated with 8-step “automat”.
The Luxury Edition Sedan will have interior trimmed with Nappa leather in two colors, adjustable in 12 directions driver’s seat with two modes of heating and ventilation system, leather-covered front panel, inserted with frosted tree, a navigation system with 8.4-inch screen, heat and cool cupholders and LED key points in the interior. Outside the Luxury Edition will be identified by 20-inch wheels (19-inch to four-wheel drive version), and accent of “platinum chrome” colors in the exterior.
These cars will appear for sale in February 2012. The Chrysler 300 Luxury Edition V6 with rear-wheel drive will cost 40 145 dollars in the U.S. market, and 42 495 dollars will cost a modification of the drive to both axles.
