2019 Chrysler 300
2019 is right around the corner, and with that, 2019 model year vehicles are also coming out. Many automakers have already begun to release their 2019 model lineup, one of which being Fiat Chrysler. Entering its final model year, the 2019 Chrysler 300 returns with all the great stuff it’s known for and then some.
5.7-liter HEMI V8
Avail. Engine Type
The lineup for the Chrysler 300 is a little different in 2019, but the same amount of trims remain. These are the 300 Touring, 300 Touring L, 300S, 300 Limited, and 300C. Most of the lineup, all but the 300C, are powered by a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine, optimized with variable valve timing (VVT) technology, and able to generate 292 horsepower. If looking for more power, consumers can find it under the hood of the Chrysler 300C, powered by a 5.7-liter V8 HEMI engine, able to produce a best-in-class 363 horsepower. Consumers not need worry about the fuel economy, because thanks to Fuel Saver Technology with a Multi-Displacement System (MDS), when cruising at steady speeds, half of the cylinders are turned off to conserve fuel.
Driving and Handling
All trims of the 2019 Chrysler 300 have the engine paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission. They do differentiate a bit in fuel economy however. Trims powered by the V6 engine have a fuel economy of 19 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway; the 2019 Chrysler 300C has a fuel economy of 16 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway. All trims with the V6 engine also come with a segment-exclusive active transfer case and front-axle disconnect system, able to go from rear-wheel drive (RWD) to all-wheel drive (AWD).
The Chrysler 300 has always had a bold look, and this year, there are a few highlights to name. Returning for 2019, automatic headlamps, bi-function halogen projector headlamps, chrome LED tail lamps, heated exterior mirrors, and solar control glass are standard across the lineup. Aside from the base, 300 Touring, all models are expected to be able to opt-in for a dual-pane panoramic sunroof in 2019.
Available exterior colors for 2019 include Bright White, Ceramic Gray, Gloss Black, Granite Crystal, Green Metallic, Maximum Steel, Ocean Blue, Silver Mist, and Velvet Red. For performance attitude, the 2019 Chrysler 300S has a performance-tuned suspension, performance-tuned steering, blacked-out exterior accents, and Black Noise wheels. Or, go up a level to the 300C, sporting Platinum Chrome finishes and 20-inch polished-aluminum wheels.
2019 is also bringing a little more variety to the bunch for the Chrysler 300. Standard features return, such as a rear 60/40 folding seat, dual-zone automatic air conditioning control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and an 8-way power adjustable drivers seat. Depending on the trim, especially when it comes to the 300S and 300C, consumers may find leather upholstery, front-row seats and/or second-row seats with heating, a heated and leather wrapped steering wheel, a backlight sunshade, and an auto-dimming exterior mirror.
The 2019 Chrysler 300S and 300C come with a sport mode with paddle shifters for easy manual shifting if so desired, and leather-wrapped sport seats; segment-exclusive deep-quilted and perforated Nappa leather seats and door panels on the 300C. The 300C also comes with hand-sanded natural pore wood, French accent stitching, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with a unique chrome accent ring, and the choice of signature two-tone Indigo/Linen or Mocha for the color of the interior cabin. Other trims may have the choice of Black, Black/Linen, Black/Caramel, Black/Smoke combinations.
All across the 2019 lineup, Uconnect 4C on an 8.4-inch touchscreen is expected to return, along with steering wheel mounted audio controls, integrated voice command with Bluetooth, HD Radio, Google Android Auto and Apple CarPlay capabilities. A six-speaker system is the standard setup, but an available signature nine-speaker Alpine Audio system with surround sound and a trunk-mounted subwoofer is an option music lovers will want to look for on the 300S trim.
