The Chrysler 300 is nearing the end, but Chrysler has decided to revive the sportier 300C for the 2023 model year. The new 300C picks up where the last one left off.
The 2023 Chrysler 300C is powered by the 6.4-liter Hemi V8 with 485 horsepower and 475 pound-feet of torque. If you’re keeping track, that’s more power than the old 300 SRT, with its 470 hp. All that power is sent to the rear wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission and a limited-slip differential. The 300C can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 4.3 seconds and reach a quarter-mile in 12.4 seconds.
There are some other performance upgrades as well, like four-piston Brembo brakes, active dampers and an active exhaust. It rides on special black 20-inch wheels and gets the blacked out treatment. on the grille, headlights and taillights, and bumper. The exterior is topped off with a special tri-color Chrysler badge.
Inside there are Black Laguna leather seats with the 300C logo, carbon fiber inserts, gloss black trim and silver stitching. A Harmon Kardon audio system is also added. The 2023 Chrysler 300C is priced at $56,595. Production of the Chrysler 300 will end after the 2023 model year.
“We’re celebrating the Chrysler 300 and it’s iconic legacy in the automotive world,” said Chris Feuell, Chrysler brand chief executive officer. “The Chrysler 300 changed the automotive world in so many ways, and we will carry that spirit of ingenuity forward as we transform Chrysler with a fully electrified future and breakthrough customer experiences.”
