The 2014 Chrysler 300 is a full-size sedan available in six primary trim levels: 300, 300S, 300C, John Varvatos Luxury Edition, SRT8 Core and SRT8. The 300S is something of an island in the 300 lineup, adding 8 horsepower under the hood (V6 only), 20-inch alloy wheels with performance tires, a “touring” sport suspension, a Sport mode and shift paddles for the transmission, remote start, unique black-out styling elements, foglights, an eight-way power passenger seat, piano-black cabin accents, a rearview camera and a 10-speaker Beats by Dr. Dre sound system.
Stepping up to the 300C adds the following to the base 300’s equipment list: 18-inch alloy wheels, remote start, foglights, additional chrome exterior accents, a driver-side auto-dimming mirror, LED cabin lighting, heated and cooled front cupholders, power-adjustable pedals, a power tilt-and-telescoping heated steering wheel, leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, driver memory functions, heated rear seats, a power rear sunshade, a rearview camera, a navigation system with Garmin-sourced software and a six-speaker Alpine audio system. The 300C John Varvatos Luxury Edition (named after the menswear fashion designer) tacks on niceties like “platinum chrome” exterior trim, 20-inch wheels, the touring suspension and Sport shift features from the 300S, upgraded leather upholstery, extended leather trim and hand-sanded wood inserts.
The SRT8 Core shifts gears to high-performance mode, featuring a 6.4-liter V8 engine, special 20-inch wheels, Brembo brakes, black exterior accents, a performance-oriented three-mode stability control system, launch control, sport-tuned steering and cloth-upholstered sport seats. The Core’s other standard features are relatively basic, however, mirroring the entry-level 300 for the most part. The full-flavored SRT8 comes with different 20-inch wheels and adds a three-mode adjustable sport suspension, front and rear parking sensors, adaptive and auto-leveling bi-xenon headlamps, sport seats with leather/faux-suede upholstery and most of the luxury features from the 300C. Many of the upper trims’ features are available on the lower trims as stand-alone options or via various packages. Other option highlights include a panoramic sunroof and a 19-speaker Harman Kardon sound system.
All 2014 Chrysler 300 trims except the SRT8 come standard with a 3.6-liter V6 that produces 292 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. The 300S V6 gets minor tweaks (including a sport-tuned exhaust) that bump output to 300 hp. An eight-speed automatic is standard, as is rear-wheel drive. All-wheel drive is optional. On the technology front, the standard 8.4-inch touchscreen interface is one of my favorites, pairing large buttons and crisp graphics with a logical menu structure. Also, the 300’s diverse array of audio options, including an Alpine system, a Harman Kardon system, and of course the thumping Beats by Dr. Dre setup is pretty amazing !
