Chrysler’s 300 sedan won’t be a full-size sedan after 2023, and the brand will send it to pastures with one final special edition: the 2023 300C, which packs a 6.4-liter V-8 under the hood and a host of additional performance upgrades. In honor of the original 300, the 300C can go from 0-60 mph in an estimated 4.3 seconds from the manufacturer on its way to the 12.4-second quarter-mile, with a top speed of 160 mph.
2023 Chrysler 300C Rides Into the Sunset With 485 Horses Under the Hood
With 2023 being the last year for the 300, Chrysler will only have the Pacifica minivan and Pacifica hybrid in its 2024 lineup as of this writing. Only the 2000 300C will be available in the US, and reservations are now open on Chrysler’s website. Interested buyers only need three complete steps: choose an exterior color, choose a dealer, and make a deposit.
The 300C will wear unique, three-tone 300C badging on the grille in place of the Chrysler winged badge, and additional 300C badging on the trunk lid. Black exhaust tips, headlights and taillights, and black chrome accents on the grille and lower fascia are meant to make the sedan even more menacing. The 300C also gets unique 20-inch wheels that wear all-season performance tires. Only three exterior paint colors are available: pure white, glossy black or velvet red.
Inside, the 300C is fitted with black Laguna leather that covers the front seats embossed with the 300C badge, along with silver stitching on the seats, door panels and leather-trimmed dashboard. Carbon fiber trim and piano black accentuate the cabin even more.
Every 300C comes fully loaded, with comfort and convenience features such as a heated steering wheel and heated and ventilated front seats. An 8.4-inch touchscreen Uconnect 4 (not the latest Uconnect 5) with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is standard, as is Harmon Kardon’s 19-speaker premium stereo.
