Chrysler 300

The Chrysler 300 is a large sedan that seemingly doesn’t follow the bounds of time. The first generation model launched in 2005 in a world where retro-inspired models were all the rage, while the second-generation model – which first went on sale in 2011, and is still on sale today – refined the recipe to offer a more tech-focused package.

The biggest success story for the Chrysler 300 has always been the V8-powered models, and in the post Commodore and Falcon era, it has met the need for a big-power rear-wheel drive sedan for some customers. There are even a few on police fleets around Australia.

The Chrysler 300 range starts at $60,550 for the 300 C Luxury, and tops out at $78,250 for the V8-powered 300 SRT

This vehicle is also known as Lancia Thema (Europe).
