A proud and prestigious vehicle during the 1950s, the Chrysler 300 fell into anonymity during the '60s and then disappeared from the automotive landscape for more than 30 years. Reintroduced in the mid-2000s, the 300 was an immediate success for the brand.
The 300 is a large five-passenger sedan with rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. It is designed to appeal to consumers desiring something with a bit more personality than a regular family sedan, or as an alternative to popular Japanese or European entry-luxury sedans. The car's American styling and optional V8 power set the 300 apart from its rivals. Later versions of the Chrysler 300 sedan feel noticeably more upscale, thanks to their higher-quality interior materials and additional technology features.
