For the second year in a row, the Chrysler 300 has dominated as best-in-class in the Large Car category of the AutoPacific Ideal Vehicle Awards.

According to FCA, “AutoPacific’s Ideal Vehicle Awards are based on scores developed using results from the automotive research and consulting firm’s New Vehicle Satisfaction Survey. More than 50,000 respondents rated 14 vehicle attributes based on their desire for change. Those vehicles whose owners want the least change rank highest in their class for the Ideal Vehicle Award.”

And why would drivers want to change the sleek, tech-advanced, and smooth-performing Chrysler 300?

In addition to an enviable fuel efficiency rating of 30 mpg on the highway, the 2019 Chrysler 300 offers advanced connectivity technology such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to keep drivers connected on the go, and the 8.4-inch touch screen of the Uconnect 4C infotainment screen is not only user-friendly and responsive, but it’s also garnered praise and accolades as it’s the largest screen available in its class.

The 2019 Chrysler 300, which is available at five trim levels (Touring, Touring L, 300S, Limited, and 300C) is powered by a standard 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine paired to a TorqueFlight eight-speed automatic transmission that generates 292 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. The available 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine increases the ratings to 363 horsepower and 394 lb-ft of torque.  

The 2020 Chrysler 300 offers the same impressive powertrain options along with approximately 80 safety and security features and technologies. To enhance the already stylish appearance of the 2020 Chrysler 300 is the available Red S Appearance Package.
