Titled under a numeric label, Chrysler's flagship series of large-scale sedans ride on a platform developed through parent DaimlerChrysler and share some components with a sedan by Mercedes-Benz plus two cars from Dodge.

Three engines are available to power the sedans through four trims tagged as base 300, 300 Touring, luxurious 300 Limited and flagship 300C. Cushy 300C, with leather seats and simulated tortoise shell trim, totes a high-tech rendition of Chrysler's fabled HEMI engine with hemispheric combustion chambers.

The 5.7-liter V8 makes 340 hp through an electronic automatic five-speed transmission teamed with Chrysler's AutoStick. It comes with a multi-displacement system (MDS) that can switch to fuel-saving four-cylinder mode when all of that power is not needed.

Chrysler adds another option to the 300 line with an all-wheel-drive (AWD) system for the top two powertrains.
