The 2015 Chrysler 300 will have its premiere at this year’s Los Angeles Auto Show scheduled for this fall. The release of the new model should happen shortly after. The 2015 Chrysler 300 will represent a mild refreshment of the sedan, but we cannot say that the changes will be minor or uninteresting. The new model will feature a new appearance, both external and internal. The 2015 sedan will have its exterior updated, keeping the predecessor’s basic design lines and adding to them new parts and details. This way the new model will preserve its design heritage, but it will also present it in a new and modern way. Since tastes and fashion change almost daily, we warmly welcome the change. In addition, the new model will feature a refreshed cabin with possible updates when it comes to equipment. On the other hand, though, the new model will keep its powertrain absolutely unchanged. The units currently offered return enough power and decent performance, but we were hoping for at least a mild tuning. In addition, the 2015 Chrysler 300 will not offer its premium trim level, the SRT8. It is unclear at the moment whether the trim will receive a new moniker or is it completely discarded. We are hoping that the first one is true. Nevertheless, let’s take a look at what the next model of the 300 will have to offer.
Refreshed Exterior Of 2015 Chrysler 300
Like we mentioned before, the 2015 Chrysler 300 will have a refreshed appearance. The basic lines in its design are kept unchanged, so the model still has its powerful and bold body shape. The model’s side look also hasn’t changed. On the other hand, the new 300 has a completely new feel on both front and rear end. Facing it straight, the first thing one can notice is the new grille, which is more aggressive and bigger. The grille is followed by new, redesigned bumpers and restyled headlights. In addition, the rear bumper has also been changed, as well as exhaust tips and taillights. The new model will still resemble its predecessor, but its looks have been changed in a way that fits its nature better and really expresses its dominant and powerful figure. Even though the appearance is not the most important aspect of the car, we must say that the new look of the redesigned 2015 Chrysler 300 really makes the difference.
Redesigned Interior And Higher Level Of Comfort
As for the interior, the 2015 Chrysler 300 will offer a completely redesigned cabin. The details about its interior look are unknown at the time, but some sources claim that the new 300 will have more space and that it will offer higher level of comfort for its passengers. In addition, the new model will increase the level of luxury as well, offering a more elegant and stylish feel of the interior even in the basic trim. Moreover, the new 2015 Chrysler 300 will receive a new instrument cluster, and its list of gadgets and equipment should also be improved.
Engine Options Of 2015 Chrysler 300
The 2015 Chrysler 300 will have the same powertrain options as the current model. The base engine will be the 3.6-liter V6 Pentastar unit that can produce 292 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. This unit comes with an eight-speed automatic gearbox. Other option is the 5.7-liter V8 HEMI engine that generates 370 horsepower and 395 lb-ft of torque. For transmission, this unit will use a five-speed automatic gearbox. Both powertrains should keep their current fuel economy figures unchanged, since there are no improvements in body weight, power outputs, aerodynamics etc. This means that the basic engine will use 18 mpg in the city, 27 mpg on highway and 21 mpg when combined using an all-wheel drive mode, while the rear-wheel drive modes returns with 19 mpg/city, 31 mpg/highway and 23 mpg/combined. The other engine, paired with the rear-wheel drive, has its figures at 15 mpg/city, 25 mpg/highway and 18 mpg/combined, and when it is using an all-wheel drive, its consumption is at 15 mpg/city, 23 mpg/highway and 18 mpg/combined.
2015 Chrysler 300 Release And Price
The 2015 Chrysler 300 will be released shortly after the Los Angeles Auto Show scheduled for this fall. As for the price, it should cost more than the current model, meaning its price should be around $30,000.
