To continue its establishment of fine automobile craftsmanship, Chrysler has continued with the tradition of producing the 300 series with several changes in the 2018 edition. Most of these changes are based in the trim levels in comparison to major differences in engineering or aesthetic appeal.
For this edition, the baseline model is known as the 300 Touring trim that has a lower MSRP than the 2017 baseline. The Touring trim does not have its features stripped out of it to obtain this lower cost. A 3.6-liter V6 engine pushing 292 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque to the flywheel. This comes paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission that provides a fuel economy in the city of 19 miles per gallon and 30 miles per gallon in the highway. The eight-speed automatic transmission does have a manual mode if you decide you wish to have more control over the shift points.
The safety features of this trim edition provides electronic stability control, brake assist, traction control for driving assistance. The four-wheel disc brakes are supplemented with an anti-lock brake system to all four wheels. A curtain of airbags surround the cabin that include a driver and passenger airbags with front and rear head, and front side bags.
