You'll have few options when it comes to a large four-door sedan, and even the 2022 Chrysler 300 isn't particularly competitive.

Rear-wheel drive and a V-6 engine are the standard powertrains; a gas-guzzling V-8 is offered and lends the 300 a little more muscle car flair.

The Chrysler 300 interior is roomy and comfortable, but those looking for the luxury of a comparable-sized luxury automobile will be disappointed.

What's New for 2022?

All 2022 models come standard with a new N95 cabin air filter and the Comfort Group option, which now includes a security alarm.

Luxurious and convenient features are packed into the Touring L variant at a reasonable price. All-wheel drive and the standard 3.6-liter V-6 are available options.

There is a 300S version that has a stronger suspension and a rougher ride for the V-8 if you desire it. Also keep in mind the V-8's high fuel consumption.

Engine, Transmission, and Performance

The Chrysler 300 stands out in the large-car sector due to its rear-wheel-drive design and optional Hemi V-8 engine with 363 horsepower.

All-wheel drive is offered with the 292-hp 3.6-liter V-6. In tests, a rear-wheel-drive V-6-powered 300S accelerated to 60 mph in 6.3 seconds.

In the same test in 2015, a rear-driver with a V-8 engine achieved a quick time of 5.3 seconds. For its size, the 300 handles reasonably well.

The 300S's stronger suspension and 20-inch wheels make it ride rough, which contradicts its near-luxury objective. Touring or Touring L are comfortable options.

Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG

The 3.6-liter V-6 engine in the 300 makes it slightly less fuel efficient than its competitors.

In real-world testing, the Chrysler 300 matched its EPA highway estimate of 30 mpg, but the Volkswagen Arteon was 1 mpg better.

This four-door is quite the gas guzzler when equipped with the Hemi 5.7-liter V-8, averaging 19 mpg combined by the EPA's standards.

Interior, Comfort, and Cargo

The Touring is the base model for the Chrysler 300. It has a few comforts and fabric seats.

The more expensive Touring L and 300S models offer power-adjustable front seats with heat and lumbar support, leather upholstery, and lit front and rear cupholders.

Optional features on all save the base model include heated and ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, and power-adjustable front seats.

Chrysler covers the 300's dashboard and upper door panels with soft-touch, leather-grain plastic. Nice texture, but looks artificial..

The interior is ageing badly. The Kia Cadenza beats the 300 here. The 300's trunk can fit six carry-on bags, like others in its market.

Infotainment and Connectivity

Standard 8.4-inch touchscreen displays Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. SiriusXM offers a one-year trial, and in-dash navigation is optional.

Safety and Driver-Assistance Features

All models save the base model can purchase Chrysler's safety equipment, which is included in the SafetyTec Plus package.

Warranty and Maintenance Coverage

The 300's warranty coverage from Chrysler is standard. Some rivals provide comparable offerings.

The Kia Cadenza, with a coverage period of up to 10 years or 100,000 miles, is the clear winner in this case.
