Despite the age, this full-size sedan still has a lot to offer. Therefore, the latest reports suggest that the current generation will definitely carry on for another year, as 2020 Chrysler 300. The current, second generation has been on the market since 2011. Still, a major part of the car dates from the original model, which came way back in 2004. There is no doubt that 15 years is a long period, but the Chrysler 300 still has a lot to offer. This refers to many aspects, including a spacious and well-equipped cabin, powerful engines and much more. Considering that there are no bigger changes planned for the next year, count on its arrival in the usual time of a year.
- Plenty of power
- Upscale interior
- Spacious cabin
- Lots of standard equipment
- Poor handling
- Bad outward visibility
The overall shape of this full-size sedan hasn’t changed for almost 15 years. Base lines are still here, while the second generation has brought new sheet metal, new front face etc. That front face is still a dividing point among car lovers, but we would say that the current model definitely shows few signs of aging. Still, the chassis is definitely a bigger problem. It is old, so the car is heavy. Despite powerful engines, the ride is not inspiring at all, due to bad handling. Even rivals with significantly less power, such as Toyota Avalon and Nissan Maxima offer much better driving experience.
While the ride quality may be questionable, the interior layout is definitely one of the strongest points of this sedan. It is pretty much on par with premium cars. Soft-touch surfaces are all around the cabin, while the list of standard features is pretty impressive. The cabin is also very spacious. You can count on plenty of legroom and excellent supports. Another great thing about this cabin is spectacular sound isolation, so comfortable ride is guaranteed. On the other side, poor visibility is probably the only bigger issues with the cabin of this full-size sedan.
Two engines will be in the offer for 2020 Chrysler 300. Base models will continue with a familiar 3.6-liter V6 unit, which in this case delivers around 292 horsepower. In the Limited trim, it delivers around 300 hp. Of course, eight cylinders are available too. There is a well-known 5.7-liter V8 engine that delivers around 365 horsepower. As you can see, the 2020 Chrysler 300 definitely won’t lack power, but fuel economy remains a big issue. In the base model, you can count on relatively decent 18 mpg in the city and 25 on the highway, but V8 models are pretty thirsty.
2020 Chrysler 300 Release Date and Price
The 2020 Chrysler 300 should arrive sometime late in the year. We don’t expect bigger changes in price, so base versions should go around $29,000.
