2021 Chrysler 300 Brings Potent Performance To Calgary
The 2021 Chrysler 300 Brings Sporty Performance to Calgary, Alberta
The 2021 Chrysler 300 earns attention on the road with its classic exterior, which features a chiseled black grille and distinctive wing badge. This four-door auto also brings an uncommon level of power to the sedan market. Its 300 horsepower V6 offers snappy acceleration, while a 5.7 V8 option reaches 100 km/h in just over five seconds. With available AWD and 1,018 mm of rear legroom, the vehicle balances practicality and comfort with impressive performance.
Here is a closer look at the engine, transmission, and controls that make the 2021 Chrysler 300 one of the most responsive and fun-to-drive autos in its class.
The 2021 Chrysler 300 Brings V6 Power to Calgary
A 3.6L Pentastar V6, with Variable Valve Timing (VVT), comes standard on all 2021 Chrysler 300 models. The engine boasts 292 horsepower and 262 lb.-ft of torque on the Touring and Touring-L. This number jumps to 300 hp on the S trim, however, and this allows for a 100 km/h acceleration ratio of just 6.3 seconds. The car can even handle a trailer weighing up to 454 kg. It offers all this capability with a fuel economy rating of 7.8 L/100 km (highway).
The 2021 Chrysler 300S: Available V8 Power and RWD in Calgary
The 2021 Chrysler 300S brings a robust rear-wheel drivetrain to Calgary. Though a V6 is standard, a 5.7L HEMI V8 is available for those seeking extra muscle. This powertrain features a Multi-Displacement System (MDS), which lowers fuel use by idling cylinders if they are unneeded. When it operates at full capacity, however, the engine delivers 363 hp, 393 lb.-ft of torque, and a top speed of 249 km/h.
The 2021 Chrysler 300 Shifts Smoothly in Calgary
Chrysler 300 models feature an eight-speed TorqueFlite automatic transmission (with an optional manual mode and wheel-mounted paddles). Thanks to clever engineering, drivers get optimal performance in all conditions. Wide gear ranges at lower velocities ensure stable and responsive acceleration, while closer ratios at higher speeds bring reduced RPMs and better efficiency. The sedan also has a class-exclusive rotary shift dial, which takes up less space on the centre console than a traditional lever.
The 2021 Chrysler 300 Puts Control at Your Fingertips in Calgary
The 2021 Chrysler 300 is impressive under the hood, but pure muscle doesn't mean much unless the driver has the ability to control it. The sedan offers electric power steering, with a Sport mode available on the S trim. You also get a fully-customisable in-cluster display with performance and speed data and 7,000 different configurations. Both cruise control and Uconnect media centre buttons are located right on the wheel, so you can make adjustments while still retaining complete command of the car.
