2016 Chrysler 300 Limited Review – The Last of a Dying Breed

The 2016 Chrysler 300 Limited is the last model in the line of non-luxury rear-wheel drive domestic sedans. Even though it is going to be the last of its kind for the car manufacturer, it does offer some of the best in-dash car technology to grace the modern market. For instance, it has the Uconnect infotainment system which remains a personal favorite for many. It is because said system has a smart mix of embedded and smartphone-tethered connectivity. Furthermore, it even gains some new features for the 2016 model, such as a drag-and-drop menu bar, a Do Not Disturb setting for Bluetooth-connected devices, and the Siri Eyes Free feature for Apple devices.

2016 Chrysler 300 Limited Review - The Last of a Dying Breed

The 2016 Chrysler 300 Limited Goes Out With a Bang

The 2016 Chrysler 300 Limited comes with a 3.6-liter, 292-horsepower V6 engine which is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. For its list of features that come with the standard model, it comes with 17-inch painted-aluminum wheels, LED taillights, illuminated center console cup holders, keyless entry and ignition, automatic high-beam headlights, heated exterior mirrors, heated and power front seats, and a review camera.

Aside from these features, other features include a 7-inch LCD instrument panel, the Uconnect 8.4A head unit with AM/FM, a Media Hub with USB, SD card, and aux inputs, and the aforementioned Siri Eyes Free feature.

Its Pentastar 3.6-liter, 232-horsepower V6 engine does not provide the same power than the Hemi V8 found on the car’s higher-end models, but the tradeoff here is that it does deliver better fuel economy. This is good news, especially for a vehicle of this size. It can deliver 19 mpg city, 31 mpg highway, and 23 mpg combined.

Power delivery is suitable and quite decent, except for a slight lag found on its quick acceleration feature. Its eight-speed automatic transmission calls for smooth shifts, but the heft found in the 2016 Chrysler 300 makes it well-balanced when driving on most pavement types. It will give a “floaty feeling” in turns.

Even though the 2016 Chrysler 300 Limited has standard performance, it does deliver a good list of features along with more than decent fuel economy. Even though it is not as powerful as the Hemi-equipped model, it can still be a good choice for many. Hence, the vehicle makes it one of the best value for money cars you can get in today’s market.
