As the automotive industry transitions towards electric mobility, we bid a fond farewell to an icon of American luxury and performance – the 2023 Chrysler 300. With its elegant design, iconic style, and powerful performance, the Chrysler 300 has captured the hearts of car enthusiasts and luxury seekers alike. However, as Chrysler looks towards a greener future, the 2023 Chrysler 300 represents the final gas-powered sedan in the brand’s lineup.
The Chrysler 300 has been a prominent figure in the automotive landscape, embodying a perfect blend of sophistication, luxury, and power. The 2023 Chrysler 300 stands as a testament to the brand’s commitment to delivering segment-exclusive features and advanced technology. The sedan has kept pace with modern connectivity demands from its standard Uconnect 4C system to the largest-in-class 8.4-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Under the hood, the 2023 Chrysler 300 boasts a range of powertrains, including the renowned 5.7-liter HEMI® V8 engine available in the 300S model. This powerful engine delivers an impressive 363 horsepower and 394 lb.-ft. of torque, solidifying the sedan’s position as the only V8-powered option in its class. Additionally, the limited-production 300C variant takes performance to another level with the 6.4-liter HEMI® V8 engine, generating a mighty 485 horsepower and 475 lb.-ft. of torque. This fierce powerplant propels the 300C from 0 to 60 mph in a mere 4.3 seconds and showcases its capability with a top speed of over 160 mph.
With the announcement of Chrysler’s transition towards an all-electric future by 2028, the 2023 Chrysler 300 takes on a unique significance. As production winds down, automotive enthusiasts and collectors have come to cherish this final opportunity to own a gas-powered Chrysler sedan. Only 2,000 units of the 300C will be available in the U.S., adding an air of exclusivity to an already legendary vehicle.
Thanks to our dealer connections, will are now learning more about the final months of production of the 300. For those wishing to secure a piece of automotive history, time is of the essence. July marks the final month to place an order for the current Chrysler 300 models. However, the demand for the 5.7-liter HEMI-powered Chrysler 300S remains unmet, with 444 units still unclaimed. Regrettably, the Touring AWD models are no longer available for ordering.
According to the timeline provided to U.S. dealers, the production of the 300C will cease in November, ensuring that all 2,000 U.S. units and 200 Canadian units are built. Regular production for the remaining Chrysler 300 models will conclude on December 22nd, with the last deliveries set to take place in January.
