Chrysler Shows A Plusher Side Of The 300


Chrysler is moving on up with their new 300 by offering a new Luxury Series trim level that brings forth more plushness and luxury.

The outside of the 300 Luxury Series differs from other 300s with a unique platinum-chrome finish applied to the mesh grille in addition to the door handles, mirror caps and other various trim pieces. Nineteen or twenty-inch wheels complete the look.

Inside, the seats, dashboard, door panels and center console are wrapped in Poltrona Frau “Foligno” leather upholstery. The steering wheel is also wrapped in the same upholstery and is featured with metal paddle shifters and a unique chrome accent ring. The floor is lined with 18-ounce Berber mats. Topping it all off is matte natural pore mocha wood trim.

Pricing for the 300 Luxury Series begins at $40,970 for the Pentastar V6 and $43,720 for the HEMI V8. Want AWD? That raises prices to $43,320 for the V6 and $46,070 the V8. (All prices include an $825 destination charge.)

They should lop off 'Luxury Edition' and put Imperial in its place. This car is totally deserving of being called a 300 Imperial. It'd also build some real cachet for the Imperial brand and potentially lead to a completely new luxury sedan called the Imperial in the future.

Love the look of the house in the background also. Is this the same as the 'Executive' series that was previously announced, or above that?

They should do a LWB version w/ some different lighting and grille as an Imperial. The previous generation had a commerical-use LWB version.

This is totally the car I would get if I were back in the market again for a lux sedan. Unfortunatly (sorta) the next vehicle will either have to be a truck or small CUV for Albert and I get the CR-V for a work vehicle.

I really like this new trim level. It looks extremely luxurious. Love the interior, from the color scheme to the hand sanded wood to the high grade leather. It looks like a modern take on old world luxury.

I also really like the dark brown, combined with the grill, satin mirrors and the very nice wheels it looks properly luxurious.

I've been bitching about the 'buried in plastic' wood in modern cars for a decade now- so nice to see actual texture making it's way back!
I like a number of the details here, but I would vote for more separation of features/details before using the nameplate Imperial again.

Puts Cadillac to shame when versed against the Xtra Too Skinny. Plusher than a Lincoln My Kar Sux. Conclusion: this is the nicest American luxury sedan on the market.

Nice! Love the interior.

What's the difference between the funky gearshift and the gated one, btw?

When did the wood in cars last have texture? (outside of Rolls and Jaguar)

Well, you know me & my preferred frame of reference... :rolleyes:
My '64 GP has a real nice, natural texture on it's American Walnut trim. Dash, steering wheel, shift gate. Nice.
To answer your question; from the cars & pics I've seen... the '60s is the last time there was a tactile feel to automotive wood.
'66 Eldorado had it, but I believe Cadillac went to plood by '67. Pontiac did too, I believe.

Most today are as plastically-smooth as glass- defeats half of the purpose of wood in a car, which is look & feel.
There's more attention to the feel of plastic in an interior today than of wood. Ass-backwards.

It's hard on many cars today to distinguish the plood from the real wood because of the super shiny smooth finish..the low gloss, textured wood trim is a nice change. I really like what I've seen of the new 300...had a base rental trim one a couple months ago, and w/ the V6 it was quiet and smooth, plenty enough power for a daily driver IMO. Even w/ the base cloth interior it was very nice place to spend time...I definitely want to check out the Luxury Series when it arrives..

When I sat in the 300 Executive last year, the thing that really jumped out at me in that car was that the wood had a texture. That, along with the color of the leather seats made the car feel like a classy old country club lounge somewhere.

the interior is very classy and retro. i truly believe Chrysler has upped its game. i mean with this, and the dart. not to mention the Pentastar is one of the top 10 highest rated engines this year according to Wards. chrysler is a force to be reckoned with. and i say that proudly as a Mopar enthusiast :)

Just about anything that doesn't look like it was designed by West Coast Customs. This thing is too over the top for me, like almost every Mopar product of the last 3-4 years. I will give them credit for the 200 design, too bad about the underpinnings though.

wow you got a pretty backwards way of thinking. the 200 design was a nice update from the sebring but it is in no way better then the 300. you do realize this is a luxury car and there for uses things people deem luxurious. that does include looks. such as the projectors, the LEDs, the chrome, the wheels, the color, the leather, the sound, the everything that makes a luxury car a luxury car.
