Following a complete redesign in 2011, the 300 returns with minor changes for 2012. The V6-equipped versions now come with an 8-speed automatic transmission, which is said to boost highway mileage past 30 mpg. All-wheel-drive is also now available on V6-equipped versions. A new model joins the lineup for 2012: the 300S. In addition, the 300 SRT8 has been reintroduced after a year-long hiatus. Both feature specific trim and performance enhancements, with the SRT8 powered by a 470-horsepower 6.4L V8.
Athletic V8 engines; roomy interior; comfortable ride; luxury-style interior touches; available all-wheel drive
The 300 presents a luxury big-car design and style at an affordable price. The 2011 redesign gave the 300 an Audi-like appearance and presence, but prices still start around $30,000. The lineup of powerful engines and available all-wheel drive mean the 300 also has performance credibility. Inside, a comprehensive list of standard equipment as well as safety technology means the 300 competes above its class in both features and price.
