What's New In The 2018 Chrysler 300?


There’s no denying that the 2018 Chrysler 300 looks better than ever with an updated interior, new engines, and new-generation changes that will make the vehicle stand out. Here are a few changes you can expect in the all-new Chrysler 300.

Interior Makeover
The biggest change for the 2018 Chrysler 300 model is its interior. The vehicle gets a makeover inside and out, but the interior facelift boats more soft-touch finishes for an upgraded feel. You’ll even love the higher-grade leather throughout the cabin, which lends the car a classy design. There are also updated technologies like an intuitive audio system, steering wheel-mounted controls, and a trip computer. And don’t forget the space only a full-sized luxury sedan can offer.

Exterior Facelift
We’re still waiting for the 2018 Chrysler 300’s official release, but its new exterior should include fresh updates to make the car stand out on the highway. Chrysler’s Head of Design has already mentioned the importance of the 300 staying true to its design style, so expect iconic 300 lines with a new grille and headlamps, for starters.
The 2018 Chrysler 300 will boast the car’s bold exterior with classy design additions for a fresh take on an old favorite. Most next-generation cars retain their noted aesthetics regardless of any high-tech changes, so the 300 will still have its recognizable silhouette. We might also see a revised bumper and a more aggressive look that aligns with the brand’s upcoming lineup.

Engine Speculation
The 2018 300’s engine options are still speculation, but considering the 2017 model and all the 300’s predecessors, expect a potent powertrain that knows how to perform. Based on the car’s current engines, which may or may not be improved for the next generation, we should see a V6 and V8 engine option.
Powerful engines like these boast a quick acceleration at the expense of some fuel efficiency, so it will be interesting to see whether Chrysler balances power with fuel economy. The 2017 Chrysler 300 gets 19 miles per gallon in the city and 30 mpg on the highway, so the 2018 model should do as well or better.

A New Platform
Of course, all this is still speculation at this point since Chrysler has yet to officially announce any details regarding the 2018 300. Still, given that the 2017 Pacifica minivan received a brand-new platform, it’s not outlandish to think this platform can be modified to accommodate a large sedan like the 300. If so, the new 300 will likely come with front-wheel drive and a transversally mounted engine. An all-wheel-drive option will probably be available at an extra cost.

With no official information from Chrysler, we can expect the 2018 300 sedans to be announced during the first half of 2018 and to hit dealerships mid-year. If you prefer not to wait that long, stop by Huffines Chrysler Jeep Dodge Lewisville to take the 2017 Chrysler 300 for a test drive!
