2020 Chrysler 300 Price, Review, Ratings and Pictures

Traditional, adamant, luxurious and affordable. These fantastic four words very aptly summarize the 2020 Chrysler 300 sedan. It’s one of the very few large American sedans that still survive under the growing influence of fashionistas like the Kia Stinger and Mazda 6. In fact, its form factor and design language are its biggest USPs, which have remained the same right since its launch in 2005. 

A strong reluctance to change has perhaps been the best part of it and we have always loved that. It was understatedly bold, plush and motivated to the core back when it was introduced and it proudly remains so even today.

Overall Rating

The Chrysler 300 is a vintage in itself and one which is timeless along with being a classic example of American resilience. It might not turn the young trendy heads, but is a gem for executives with tight budgetary for whom “class” is an ultimate statement. Notice one of these down the streets and its sheer presence lets you know instantly that it's something special and different. Hop inside or take a ride in the 300 and you notice how beautiful its rich and elegant interiors and supple ride complement its exterior stature.

Even though as pricier options, it also has a significantly apt feature-list which is a very healthy advantage for a sedan as ancient and iconic as the 300. Thanks to the consistently minimal fine-tuning it has received over the years. It was last revised in 2011 for its second generation and what still follows is inscribed in golden letters in American automobile history. While the 300 is a tad behind its rivals like the Nissan Maxima and Toyota Avalon in terms of tech, reliability and resale value, it offers an overall composition that its rivals can’t match. 

Not to forget, it's the only product in its segment apart from the mighty Dodge Charger, that still offers a V8. One more year into its lineup and the 2020 Chrysler 300 still stands firm with all its worthy attributes intact. Of course no major changes in 2020, but you do get a new Red S appearance package on the 300S. As the name suggests, the new physical package adds some Black and Red ornamentation, inside and out.

2020 Chrysler 300 Features


The 2020 Chrysler 300 is available in four different configurations as earlier. The range starts with the base “Touring”. Followed by the Touring L, S and Limited. Base prices for the 2020 Chrysler 300 start at $30,040 for the Touring and go all the way up to $38,595 for the Limited.

All the models come standard with an 8-speed automatic gearbox and a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6. However, the “S” trim opens doors to the big 5.7-liter Hemi V8. There’s also a range topping “300C” that comes standard with the V8 engine and is a different machine altogether with greater emphasis on performance. While you can have the V6 powered models either as rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, the V8 engine strictly powers the rear wheels only.

What do we recommend?

The Chrysler 300 is an old-school gem and enthusiasts would always prefer it in its purest form, i;e, with the Hemi V8. Since the iconic sedan and its V8 engine, both have a sword lumping upon them, why not have them as long as they are available? However, if value is the concern, the “2020 Chrysler 300 Touring L”, strikes the right chord. Equipped with the V6 engine, the Touring L provides a very good balance of efficiency and niceties that you would need on a daily basis.

2020 Chrysler 300 Engine and Performance


It's the 292 hp 3.6-liter V6 engine which most of the 2020 Chrysler 300’s would roll out of the production line. The same engine also powers the Dodge charger which shares most of the 300’s ingredients. The V6 engine has adequate grunt for a large luxury sedan and is neither enthralling nor dull. The engine likes being revved and every time you floor it, there’s a strong linear wave of power catered to the wheels. In the “S” model, the engine is tuned for 300 hp which barely accounts for any noticeable difference.

For purists though, it's the 393 hp 5.7-liter V8 motor that would be more enticing. The V8 has that traditional naturally aspirated charm into it. The eight-cylinder’s pull really hard off the line with a very strong mid-range. You actually feel the V8’s extra thump every time you squeeze the pedal. Most importantly, it's the brawny soundtrack that one would wish the V8 for. Both the V6 and V8 engines come mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission which is very smooth and quick in its business. No fuss or fumble, no turbo-lags and the transmission seems always happy to shift.

Well, the Chrysler’s rivals surely miss out on a V8 pot under the hood, but they do have a similarly powered naturally aspirated V6. The Dodge Charger in fact has the same drivetrain and mechanics and is much like a different skin with the same soul. While the Avalon has a relaxed and smooth drivetrain, the Maxima tries to break the segment boundaries with some spirit and eagerness. Thanks to its super quick and responsive Xtronic CVT that pairs very well with the 300 hp V6 motor. 


From a large traditional sedan that weighs over 4000 lbs, rapid acceleration is not something that you seek for in the first place. However, that's where the 300 rushes in to toss out your theoretical etymology. That being said, a V6 powered rear-wheel drive 2020 Chrysler 300 charges from 0-60 mph in 6.3 seconds. The rear-wheel drive only V8 300 accomplishes the same task in an impressive 5.3 seconds.

For its class and size, the 2020 Chrysler 300 sprints fairly well

While the 300’s acceleration sheet might not reflect best in class numbers, but for its sheer size and orthodox design, it does a commendable job. It might have an aged body and soul, but it flexes as energetically as its modern rivals.

Not ideally intended to feature in a “Fast and Furious” series, the large sedan segment does have some rapid sprinters today. Thanks to the intensifying “sporty” intent of automobiles in recent times. While the big Chrysler’s rivals miss out on a V8,, they do share the V6 podium with similar performance and power output. However, in terms of numbers, the Nissan Maxima outshines others with its class-leading 0-60 time of 5.7 seconds. Thanks to its super quick CVT transmission, comparatively smaller proportions and efficient aerodynamics than the rest of the lot. 

Ride and Handling

Out on the streets, the 2020 Chrysler 300 tries very hard to keep up to its luxury expectations. The ride is supple and smooth and cabin noise is very well contained as well. The steering wheel has the right amount of weight to it and though it lacks communication, it's precise enough for the 300. 

 The 2020 Chrysler 300 offers a smooth and compliant ride.

Surprisingly, the big Chrysler is as maneuverable as a Maxima or Avalon. However, flipping around corners its sheer size gets more pronounced with some significant body roll. While the ride is mostly compliant, it gets a bit firm in the “S” model which gets standard “20” inch rims. However, the S model also gets stiffer suspension tuning that taps on the body movements pretty well. 


As eager it is to charge down the line, the Chrysler 300 is equally willing in breaking its momentum. With standard 4-wheel ABS, Emergency Brake Assist and 12.6 inch rotors at the back and front, the Chrysler 300 is a confident stopper. In contrast to what its exterior profile and life-graph would suggest, the 2020 Chrysler 300 stops from 60-0 mph in a mere 109 feet

Owing to its sheer class and size, the big Chrysler is surprisingly efficient in the braking department. Among its rivals though, its corporate sibling, the Dodge Charger outshines the rest with its 107 feet 60-0 mph braking distance. Despite sharing all its mechanical componmentry with the Chrysler, the Charger is almost 60 lbs lighter and has a better weight distribution than the 300. Despite flaunting better and more efficient aerodynamics, the Avalon and Maxima fall short to the American duo. Courtesy of the Japs’ smaller disc setup.

2020 Chrysler 300 Fuel Economy


Keeping aside the spec-sheet and just by the way it looks, you might be suggesting the Chrysler 300 as a gas guzzler. However, that's not the case until you opt for the mighty V8. With the V6 engine, the 2020 Chrysler 300 returns 23 mpg combined. The 300’s fuel economy is certainly not the best in class, but is fair enough considering its size and bulk.

Even its identical twin, the Dodge Charger posts exact same numbers on the economy chart. Among the two Japanese, the Maxima offers almost similar efficiency with its 24 mpg combined. However, the Toyota Avalon with its refined powertrain and lighter body takes a small lead in the segment with 26 mpg combined.  

2020 Chrysler 300 Interior


Step inside the 2020 Chrysler 300 and you will be greeted by a clean and spacious ambience. Compared to the Toyota Avalon's modern theme, the cabin in the 300 does look dated but still beautifully holds a sumptuous vibe into it. Thanks to its neat and clean interior layout sprinkled with some upscale ornamentation. It is better off to skip the base “Touring” since it gets bare bones cloth seating surfaces and few basic amenities like power driver seat, climate control and a rear backup camera. 

The 2020 Chrysler beautifully retains its neat and upscale cabin

However, there is no shortage of exclusivity in the 300 lineup either. Step up to the Limited trim and you have a host of premium goodies like ventilated power adjustable front seats with adjustable lumbar support and leather-wrapped seats and steering wheel. The Limited model also gets heated front and rear seats, heated steering and illuminated front and rear cupholders. These modern and elite packages certainly feel overwhelming in a vehicle with as classic flavor as the Chrysler 300.

The seats are not as supportive as nicely bolstered as Nissan’s Zero Gravity seats but they offer great comfort and support over long journeys. With its long, wide and conventional silhouette, the 2020 Chrysler 300 also offers adequate room at both the front and rear seats. Not the overall best in class, but it offers best in class shoulder room at both the benches along with segment leading rear seat headroom. Among its rivals though, the Nissan Maxima edges ahead than the rest with its best in class legroom at both the rows. The stylish Nissan also has a segment best front seat headroom.


Every 2020 Chrysler 300 comes standard with Chrysler’s Uconnect infotainment system with an 8.4 inch touchscreen Uconnect infotainment system stashed onto the dash. The Uconnect system is hailed as one of the best systems in the market for its intuitiveness.

The Uconnect infotainment system is responsive and easy to use

A crisp and clutter-free interface with clean icons and prompt responses, makes the system very easy to use. The system comes standard with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, USB, SiriusXM Satellite radio, Bluetooth and 6 speakers. There is also an in-built navigation system available, but only as an option.

Cargo capacity is one aspect where the 300 outshines most of its rivals. With a long, wide and tall body, the 2020 Chrysler 300 offers a generous 16.3 cu-fts of area behind its second row. Well, the 300’s cargo is again, not the best in segment, but is more than adequate as per segment standards.

Cargo Volume (cu.-ft)





Among its rivals, the big Chrysler is overshadowed only by its corporate sibling in the cargo department. The Dodge Charger offers 16.5 cu-fts of cargo space which is just a fragment ahead than the 300. Even with smaller wheelbase and proportions, the Toyota Avalon catches up well with its 16.1 cu-fts. The sport-induced Nissan Maxima is however, at the bottom of the sheet.

Recall any of the previous gen 300’s you have seen and you’ll have a sketch of the 2020 Chrysler 300 as precise as Michael Angelo. That's how consistent its exterior styling and proportions have been. It still has the same face with the familiar understated Chrysler grille flanked by Xenon headlamps.

You also get LED DRLs and fog lights up front. The side profile is as elegant as always with straight and muscular pillars along with large “20” inch wheels. Things are kept beautifully intact at the back as well with the second-gen 300’s classic horizontal tail lamps, a Chrysler logo and dual exhausts.

2020 Chrysler 300 Safety


One area in particular where the Chrysler 300 struggles the most is its mediocre safety and reliability standards. No serious fine-tuning to its age-old composition is one of the primary reasons for the aforementioned claim. Its moderate safety ratings further highlights its ho-hum safety concerns. 

The 2020 Chrysler 300 received middling scores from IIHS and 4-star rating from NHTSA. The base model of the 2020 Chrysler 300 comes standard with passable features like 4-wheel ABS, Post-Collision safety system and Emergency Brake Assist. However, most of the advanced driver-assistance features are available, but as a part of the optional SafetyTecPlus package, across the lineup. Some of the available safety features in the 2020 Chrysler 300 range are listed below:

  • 4-wheel ABS

2020 Chrysler 300 Competition

Chrysler 300 vs Dodge Charger

Part of the FCA group, the Dodge Charger and Chrysler 300 are almost the same to the core with a different skin. While the 300 focuses more on luxury and comfort, the Charger flexes some sportiness with its strong muscles. Both the cars are similarly packed with features along with a similar conservative interior layout. In comparison to the Chrysler’s comfortable and smooth operation, the Charger is more stable and fun to drive around corners. The charger might not be as roomy as the 300, but offers a more diverse powertrain options to choose from along with best in class cargo space.

Chrysler 300 Vs Nissan Maxima

The Nissan Maxima is one of the best large sedans you can get right now. While it might not have the classical presence of the 300, it gets full marks for its contemporary outfit. The Maxima is comfortable, efficient, and the best driving car among the competition. The prominent Japanese also has a more premium interior layout, plentiful tech and safety features and best in class overall cabin space as well. Most importantly, the Maxima is the quickest among the lot, has a very smooth powertrain and is also more confident than any other car in the lot here. Where the Chrysler 300 outshines the Maxima, is with its strong V8 engine and a more generous boot space.

2020 Nissan Maxima

Chrysler 300 Vs Toyota Avalon

The Chrysler 300 and Toyota Avalon are beautiful examples of large premium sedans dating from two different eras of automobiles altogether. Both the cars have their own distinctive styling and presence. While the 300 flags the traditional American elegance, the Avalon is what a modern day premium large sedan should like. However, in close comparison, the Avalon takes a small edge over the Chrysler. Toyota’s most expensive sedan is not only more comfortable and premium on the inside, it returns class leading fuel efficiency as well. Also the Avalon has a much better feature suite along with segment best safety and reliability scores.

2020 Chrysler 300 Final Verdict

The 2020 Chrysler 300 is a good product if you are looking for a true full-blown large American sedan. It gets even more relevant in your wishlist, if you have a knack for traditional styling, premium orientations and heavy presence. The 2020 Chrysler 300 rides very well, is easy to handle, has tons of presence, rich interiors and a spacious cabin as well. However, if you are looking for a better value with something more stylish, more premium and tech-loaded along with better driveability and higher safety standards, the Nissan Maxima would be a very good choice. 


Is the Chrysler 300 a luxury car?

Yes, the Chrysler 300 is a large American sedan that lays a very high emphasis on luxury. Right from its traditional design, elegant presence to a comfortable ride and neatly laid-out upscale interiors, it has a nicely balanced blend of luxury into it.

Does Chrysler 300 have a Mercedes engine?

While the Chrysler 300 does carry a Mercedes platform underneath, it is a typical Chrysler overall and anyday. It has a Chrysler engine, components, mechanics, the technology and pretty much everything else. 

Is the Chrysler 300 being discontinued?

Not anytime soon. While many automotive portals did report that FCA was mulling axing the 300, but head of FCA passenger, Steve Beahm, says that’s not true. He has said that the Chrysler 300 has a unique proposition among its rivals and its restrained design is what separates it from the rest. He also added that FCA is not saying goodbye to the Chrysler 300. In terms of sales “it’s doing great.” “We like where it’s positioned; it provides great value. It’s a lot of car for the money.”

Which Chrysler 300 is the fastest?

While the majority of the Chrysler 300 models focus on luxury and comfort, it's the top of the line 300C that gets some induced spirit. The “C’ comes standard with the Hemi V8 and rear-wheel drive along with stiffer sport tuned suspension for optimum sporting exercises.
