Chrysler 300C returns for 2023 with SRT power and more

Chrysler will revive the SRT components for a special 2023 300C product equipped with the snarling 6.4-liter Hemi V8.

Chrysler 300 Scat Pack, below we occur — but you would much better act quickly, as only 2,000 of them will be created for the U.S. market (moreover a further 200 for Canada). And after 2023, the total Chrysler 300 lineup will be absent for superior.

Chrysler says this combo is very good for a 4.3-2nd sprint to 60 and a quarter-mile time of 12.4 seconds. 

From there, the checklist of goodies on this constrained-operate 300C traces up pretty closely with a standard Dodge Charger Scat Pack. Chassis advancements involve four-piston Brembo brakes and energetic dampers, and the spherical black ideas are hooked up to an lively exhaust to permit for moderate cruising or wild hooning. Unique 20-inch wheels, black chrome accents on the grille and bumpers, blacked out head- and taillights and a new tri-colour Chrysler badge will assistance the 2023 300C stand out in a crowd. 

Inside of, unique components involve Black Laguna leather-based seats embossed with the 300C brand, distinctive silver stitching, carbon fiber inserts and gloss black trim. Chrysler’s 19-speaker Harman Kardon sound technique is included in the package, as are heated/ventilated seats and a heated steering wheel.
