2023 Chrysler 300 – Powertrain Options in Creston

July 11,2023

Chrysler 300 has always been a classic, sophisticated sedan that blends style, luxury, and performance. And when it comes to powertrain options, the 2023 model year of Chrysler 300 goes the extra mile with three choices that cater to different driving styles and needs.  The Chrysler 300 base model comes with a 3.6L PentastarTM V6 engine with VVT that is mated to an eight-speed TorqueFlite automatic transmission. The PentastarTM V6 engine produces up to 300 horsepower, which is impressive for a V6 engine. However, what is more notable is the fuel efficiency of this powertrain. The 300 can deliver a remarkable 7.8L/100 km (30 mpg) on the highway. That means you can travel more than 500 miles before needing to fill up the gas tank. For drivers who seek more power and acceleration, the 2023 Chrysler 300 also has a 5.7L HEMI VVT V8 engine as an option. This engine produces up to 363 horsepower, propelling the 300 from 0 to 60 mph in just over five seconds.  This V8 engine is also paired with an eight-speed TorqueFlite automatic transmission, which offers a smooth and responsive driving experience. However, the fuel efficiency of this V8 engine is lower than the standard engine, achieving about 13L/100 km (18 mpg) in the city and 8.4L/100 km (28 mpg) on the highway. For those who crave the ultimate power and performance, the new 2023 Chrysler 300C is the answer. It is powered by a 6.4L HEMI SRT V8 engine with Fuel Saver MDS that produces a whopping 470 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque.  The 300C can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just over four seconds, making it one of the fastest sedans in the market. This powertrain is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters to give drivers precise control over their driving experience.
