arewell to an Icon, The Last Gas-Powered Chrysler Sedan...

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.

Regrettably, the Touring AWD models are no longer available for ordering.

While the auto industry is moving towards electrification, I don't see the brand being able to successfully go full-electric by 2028. I don't even see it by 2035 as way too much would have to change in the infrastructure of the U.S along with many other factors. It's not to say that their won't be an electrified or full BEV trim of every vehicle Stellantis produces, but from a business standpoint, it'd be impossible for the brand to be successful with every vehicle being electric. It would literally just cause people to either look to other brands or just hold on to their cars as long as they can and that would not be profitable for them. I could be wrong but just from what I'm reading and researching with Stellantis is what was really said was the fact that this generation is ending and so are the V8 cars and that going forward every model is going to have an electrified variant, which makes sense seeing that Stellantis is putting so much effort into the Hurricane engines both hybrid and non hybrid along with making it plain that the new STLA: Medium, STLA: Large and STLA: Frame platforms can utilize full ICE, Hybrid and full Battery-Electric powertrains. True the end of the L-Platform cars is here but it doesn't seem like it's going to be the end of the Charger, Challenger or 300 completely. If anything, they'll be moving to the STLA: Large platform and receiving the new Hurricane engines and 400V and 800V electric powertrains. Because why not have the rebirth of the Chrysler 300M as a sleek luxury performance sedan designed to compete with the Tesla Model S plaid and the Lucid Air Sapphire. Why not have a Chrysler 300H model with a 3.0L HO Hybrid model pushing around 650hp to compete with the BMW M5/M8 gran-coupe Competition models along with two lower variants with the 3.0 S.O and 3.0 H.O powertrains and a base 2.0L Hybrid powertrain as entry level luxury cars to compete with vehicles from Lexus, BMW and Mercedes? There are absolutely going to be way more hybrid vehicles and full battery electric vehicles in Chrysler's lineup, that's a given, but I feel like the battery electric vehicles are going to be trim levels and not full vehicle lines for the most part. To me, with the modular platforms it makes more sense and would be the better business model than to just say that they are killing all ICE vehicles and going straight to full EV. That's dumb and would loose boat loads of money. Getting rid of V8 engines is 100% a great idea and this is coming from a person who loves the sound of all Hemi V8 powered cars and just V8 powered cars in general. But for what is going on right now, letting go of them is smart. The truth is, the Hurricane engines already surpass the Hemi 5.7L and 6.4L in horsepower and torque and the 2.0L 4Xe powertrain in the Jeep is definitely equal to a 5.7L Hemi in horsepower and equal to the torque of a 6.4L. Adding an E-Torque system to the 3.0L Standard output Hurricane and the 3.0L High Output hurricane would definitely give them that same feeling that a V8 would give with the off the line torque. Not to mention having a hybrid system similar to what is on the 2.0L 4Xe added to a 3.0L Hurricane High Output powertrain would definitely give Stellantis North America a more efficient and EPA-friendly powertrain that would be competitive to a Hellcat 6.2L Supercharged powertrain. So yes, this is the last call for the Stellantis L-Cars and the Hemi powertrains, but not the end of Mopar muscle cars or gasoline powered vehicles. It's the beginning of smarter, better, faster American performance vehicles that offer power and handling capabilities that exceed what we currently have from the Mopar Brand vehicles.
