    Have you heard the phrase curb appeal? It's a term used to describe a vehicle's visual appearance. You may not be familiar with the term, but you've probably experienced the feeling of appreciation that comes from seeing a great-looking car pull up alongside you at a traffic light. That's what happens for most people when they cast their eyes on a 2022 Chrysler 300. In fact, it's so distinctive that onlookers will often ask, what kind of car is that?

    Striking a balance between enough unique curb appeal and too much is Chrysler's specialty. The automaker is known for designing vehicles that evoke the days gone by of muscle car power while also incorporating high-end premium luxury features and refinement. Some would say the 2022 Chrysler 300 is a sleeper––a vehicle that's yours to discover. Squint, and you might mistake it for a Bentley, with its solid architecture and clean, sculpted lines.

    Chrysler 300 owners love that they're behind the wheel of a vehicle with the most V8 engine horsepower and torque in the category. The 300 comes in a standard rear-wheel drive configuration with an available all-wheel option that makes it a great four-season alternative to vanilla SUVs and crossovers. Tons of standard infotainment technology contrasts with classic features like a dash-mounted analog clock to deliver style to discerning buyers.

    In a world of sameness, the 2022 Chrysler 300 offers buyers a way to stand out. Not everyone wants an SUV, but if it's space you're after, you'll find it in this large sedan. Chrysler stays true to this segment, despite many manufacturers abandoning the sedan category altogether. Not only that, but the available V8 is unique to the 300 and a feature that muscle car aficionados will appreciate. Best of all, entry models remain affordable, especially when compared with the competition.

    Bold Styling

    You won't find another vehicle quite like the 2022 Chrysler 300, which is good news for buyers with crossover fatigue. Bold styling starts at the front end, with a futuristic patterned grille. Add the available Adaptive High-Intensity Discharge (HID) headlights, and your 300 takes on an even more aggressive stance. First impressions aren't limited to adjectives like powerful and muscular: the 300 oozes refinement, hinting at the luxury cabin appointments inside.

    Chrysler offers buyers the choice of four distinct trims: the Touring, the Touring L, the 300S V6, and the powerful 300S V8. Deciding which one is right for you involves considering your individual budget, but even the base Touring features plenty of high-end standard equipment and a powerful 292-horsepower V6 engine. All trims receive a large 8.4-inch infotainment touchscreen that runs on the class-leading Uconnect infotainment operating system.

    Refined Features

    Among the list of standard equipment found on every trim is dual-zone air conditioning, illuminated front beverage holders, and steering wheel audio controls. Add the available Sport Appearance Package, and your Touring L receives 20-inch wheels with performance tires and black exterior accents. Upgrade to the Touring L, and you can add heated rear seats and a heated steering wheel. A six-speaker Alpine audio system is standard, as is ParkSense, a parking assist system that helps drivers easily navigate in and out of tight parking spaces and parallel parking situations.

    Refinements pile on with the 2022 Chrysler 300S V6, beginning with a more powerful V6 engine and a special performance-tuned suspension. Inside, you get a standard power sunroof with a dual-pane layout that infuses the cabin with natural light. Also standard are leather-trimmed seats contoured for performance driving.

    The 300S V8

    For the ultimate expression of performance and luxury, consider the Chrysler 300S V8, a powerful trim fitted with a 5.7-liter HEMI V8 for true muscle car driving enjoyment. The 300S V8 delivers on Chrysler's promise of luxury, with a more powerful premium nine-speaker Alpine audio system and upscale leather-trimmed seating. Add the available Comfort Group, and you'll get top-of-the-line features, including Bi-Xenon HID headlamps, LED interior lighting, built-in sunshades, and ventilated and heated front seats.

    Headline-Grabbing Performance

    Headline-grabbing performance is what you'll get when you choose a 2022 Chrysler 300. Paying homage to the glory days of muscle cars, the most powerful trim receives a 5.7-liter HEMI V8 capable of delivering 363 ponies and enough torque––394 lb-ft, to be exact––to win off-the-line every time. Big torque ratings mean lots of power at low speeds, so enjoy the sensation (and bragging rights) of sprinting from zero-to-sixty in just over five seconds.

    The Chrysler 300 is one of the last remaining rear-wheel drive sedans, but buyers can opt for the available all-wheel drive system to hedge their bets in wet, wintry driving conditions. The Touring and Touring L trims feature a powerful 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 that makes 292-horsepower, and the same V6 gets tweaked for 300 horses when you choose the 300S V6 trim. Both motors pair with a smooth-shifting 8-speed transmission that offers tons of low-range power.

    Chrysler 300S V6 and 300S V8 buyers also receive standard Sport Mode. Select this drive mode, and the system will automatically tune the throttle, transmission, and steering for more responsive, performance-oriented driving characteristics. 300S V8 buyers concerned about fuel-efficient needn't worry since Chrysler includes Fuel Save Technology, a system that shuts down four of the eight cylinders when they're not needed, such as during highway travel, to optimize fuel economy.

    Performance Specs

    Car and Driver clocked the 300S V8 at a brisk 5.3-second zero-to-sixty time, a stat that will thrill performance drivers. Even if you don't take part in impromptu drag races, the V8 is an experience to drive, and nothing sounds quite as thrilling as a rumbling torque-rich engine. Real driving aficionados will also love the steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters to manually switch gears and optimize output. Best of all, that big V8 power comes with a respectable 25 MPG highway fuel economy rating.

    Stats for the smaller V6 aren't far behind. The revered Pentastar engine increases highway fuel economy to 30 MPG, which rivals many much smaller, less powerful sedans. This combination of power and efficiency is uncommon in the performance sedan category, but it's a formula for which Chrysler is famous. The focus on performance is evident with styling, too, with the wide wheel arches and aggressive grille standing out as some of the Chrysler 300's key features.

    All the Bells and Whistles

    Buyers seeking all the technology bells and whistles will find them in the 2022 Chrysler 300. All trims receive a standard 8.4-inch infotainment touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. Integrating your smartphone to access app-based content is plug-and-play easy, especially because of the intuitive Uconnect infotainment software system. The display is crisp and responsive, and buyers can customize the menus for easy one-touch access to key features.

    Navigation can be found on the Touring L and both 300S trims, and the infotainment system offers buyers SiriusXM satellite radio compatibility. You'll get a generous free one-year trial and an opportunity to subscribe for commercial-free entertainment. A 4G LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot is standard across the trim lineup, offering connectivity for up to eight devices. Buyers can activate theirs with an affordable unlimited data plan that starts at just $20 per month.

    Chrysler's robust connected services also provide drivers with extra conveniences, like remote start and access to key vehicle data, like fuel level and service reminders. Through SiriusXM Guardian, your smartphone even acts as a remote key fob. A one-year subscription is complimentary with every new Chrysler 300, allowing drivers handy conveniences, help with emergency services, and quick access to roadside assistance when needed.

    Driver-Assist Systems

    A full suite of driver-assist safety systems is on offer with the 2022 Chrysler 300, including Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go, a system that automatically adjusts the vehicle's speed when the cruise control is engaged. It uses radar, cameras, and sensors to determine traffic speed and flow, adjusting to keep a consistently safe distance from the vehicle ahead. Other systems include Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning with automatic emergency braking and a LaneSense Lane Departure warning to keep you in your intended lane of travel.

    The Chrysler 300 is also available with ParkSense, a park assist program that helps you avoid the dreaded "bumper kiss" as you're trying to enter a parking spot. Bumper-mounted senses send visual and audible alerts as you approach an obstacle. The alerts speed up as you get closer, indicating exactly when you should stop. Rear Cross Path Detection works by monitoring oncoming traffic from your left or right as you prepare to back up. It alerts when a vehicle approaches, letting you know you shouldn't continue.
