The start of fall is only a few days away (September 22nd), we are starting to see the 2021 production year come to an end for several Chrysler Group models. For the Chrysler brand, it means the last call to its dealer body to order any wanted 2021 Chrysler 300 inventory, before production ends in December.
While Chrysler hasn’t unveiled its plans for the 2022 Chrysler 300 series, the car will return for the new model year. But if the production launch of the 2022 model year is anything like the start of 2021, it will be disappointing to most with a reduction in availability on several options.
Thanks to our dealer connections, we are learning about some of these options that may be disappearing thanks to the most recent dealer order guides released for September. Chrysler’s last call to order has several all-time build-outs (in other words, last chance to order) options for the 300.
The first is colors, the popular Amethyst (PCD) and Canyon Sunset (PEC) are listed as on the build-out list. This means more than likely these colors (unless released on a special edition model) will not return for 2022. Those two colors join Ocean Blue Metallic (PBM), which was discontinued earlier this year in January from the 300’s lineup.
Chrysler has also listed the 300S’ optional Radar Red and Black Smoke interior colors both have received a “last chance to order” call. The Radar Red interior will set customers back $95, while the Black Smoke interior is a no-cost option.
Two other packages are being listed under the “last chance to order” banner for September. The Driver Convenience Group (AAC) for Touring models that adds 18-inch x 7.5-inch polished aluminum wheels, 4-wheel independent suspension comfort, universal garage door opener, front LED fog lamps, remote start system, and a compact spare tire for a U.S. Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $995 is the first package listed on the order guide.
The second is the Chrome Appearance Package (AYB) for rear-wheel-drive Touring and Touring L models. This package adds 20-inch x 8-inch polished aluminum wheels, power heated exterior mirrors, chrome Day Light Opening (DLO) moldings, Platinum grille and surround, chrome exterior mirrors, chrome Chrysler wing badges, and a compact spare tire. The package currently has an MSRP of $1,500 on Touring and $995 on Touring L models.
Those vehicles that are ordered this month, are scheduled to be built before the end of December. Ordering for the 2022 Chrysler 300 Series opens to dealers next month with those units starting production in December and arriving in dealer showrooms in late December and early January.
So if those options listed above are listed on your must-haves list for a Chrysler 300 sedan. You might want to get in contact with your local Chrysler dealer, to order the car of your liking before the end of the month.
