New Chrysler 300C 3.0 CRD by StarTech

262 hp / 193 kW

Concurrent with the sales start of the Chrysler 300C 3.0 CRD StarTech (www.startech.de) already offers not only an exclusive accessories program but also StarTech SD6 performance tuning which increases power output to 262 hp / 193 kW.

The StarTech tuning kit consists of a computer-controlled auxiliary control unit complete with wire harness and installation instructions. It can be installed in less than 30 minutes by any authorized Chrysler dealer. The StarTech SD6 module for the new 300C 3.0 CRD costs 1,589 Euros and offers impressive power gain at a bargain price.

The new engine mapping increases power output of the 3.0-liter V6 common-rail turbodiesel engine from standard 218 hp / 160 kW to 262 hp / 193 kW at 4,000 rpm. Even more important in everyday driving is the jump in peak torque from standard 510 Nm to 580 Nm, available between a low 1,600 and 2,800 rpm.


These impressive figures are also reflected in the performance of the Chrysler 300C 3.0 CRD. The sprint from rest to 100 km/h is shortened from 7.6 (Touring: 7.9) seconds for the production car to 7.2 (Touring: 7.5) seconds with StarTech SD6 tuning. Top speed increases to 235 (Touring: 232) km/h.


StarTech recommends the addition of its stainless-steel sport exhaust system as the perfect complement to the performance tuning. The sport exhaust features the two characteristic oval StarTech chrome tailpipes and not only produces a more powerful yet unobtrusive exhaust note but also optimizes power yield.


The extensive StarTech individualization program for the 300C is also available for the new common-rail model. The StarTech aerodynamic-enhancement kit lends both body styles an even more striking appearance.


The front of the top-of-the-line Chrysler model receives an attractive facelift with the StarTech chrome grille with matrix design and the StarTech front spoiler. The spoiler is attached to the production bumper and has more than just cosmetic effects: Its refined shape reduces aerodynamic lift with benefits for directional stability at high speeds.


The elegantly shaped StarTech side sills offer an interesting feature: Upon activation via the keyless-entry remote or by pulling on a door handle five LED-lights on either side illuminate the ground next to the vehicle.


The StarTech roof spoiler visually extends the roofline of the sedan. The StarTech rear spoiler lip on the trunk lid reduces lift on the rear axle at high speeds.


For optimal integration of the two oval tailpipes of the StarTech stainless-steel exhaust system the designers created custom-tailored elements for the rear apron.



Another important contribution to the exclusive StarTech design is made by the 20-inch wheels and by the vehicle's lowered ride height. The one-piece StarTech Monostar IV 9Jx20 light-alloy wheels with sporty yet elegant five-spoke design are fitted with tires in size 245/40 ZR 20 in front and in size 275/35 ZR 20 on the rear axle.

The StarTech sport springs lower the ride height of the 300C 3.0 CRD by some 40 millimeters and are precision-calibrated to the production shock absorbers to combine more agile handling with excellent ride comfort.

Sill plates with illuminated StarTech logo, high-quality additions to the wood trim, Alcantara door panel elements and armrests, or aluminum shifter, StarTech.

The StarTech upholstery shop fulfills even more exclusive requests from individual customers. Among the specialties are precision-crafted fully leather interiors made from especially soft and breathable Mastik leather and Alcantara as well as the state-of-the-art StarTech multimedia package. The in-car entertainment system comprises a custom-tailored roof console with retractable 10.2-inch screen and an integrated DVD player. The sound is transmitted by two wireless infrared headphones.

So, exterior-wise...a MOPAR Accessory billet grille, Ford 500 chrome mirror caps, and Bonneville GXP wheels. Fantastic.

For all the accolades that DCX has recently received, they deserve a swift kick in the pants for not seeing the value of a Chrysler wagon like the 300 Touring. The 300 Touring is designed to appeal to a different crowd than the Magnum; in this respect, it's badge engineering done right. Even sitting between a Magnum and a Pacifica, a 300 wagon would be an attractive option, offering the sportiness of one with the luxury of the other. And, subjectively, with more attractive looks than either. Hopefully, as the LX line matures and sales start to cool, DCX will come to their senses and release something like this. It has the chance to be a winner, IMO.

That picture is the "StarTech" tuner version of the original European wagon version of the 300. Here's the "regular" 300C Touring:

It's beyond me why we don't have this powertrain available here. This car may have some cheezy add-ons, but what's under the hood is absolutely brilliant.
