The all-new 2023 Chrysler 300 is happening. It was a tough decision to discount this iconic large sedan, but FCA is now ready to revive another popular nameplate. The rumors about its big return are present for some time. However, no we can finally confirm that the Chrysler 300 model is coming back. The sales should begin later in 2022.
Because of that, it is too early to see test mules on the roads. However, reliable reports are already writing about some specific details. That includes the sedan’s powertrain options, its exterior design, and much more. Without further ado, this is everything we know about Chrysler 300 at the moment.
Chrysler 300 Redesign
It isn’t surprising, but the 2023 Chrysler 300 will once again arrive with a sedan body configuration. Again, it will be a larger sedan with a standard rear-wheel-drive system and a longer hood. Chrysler plans to deliver a larger grille flanked by LED headlights. The lower fascia will look more aggressive than ever before and the grille will wear more chrome. A two-tone hood is a possibility, along with various black trims.
To the sides, Chrysler 300 comes with nice lines and sculpted lower door inlays. Other things we expect to see are frameless windows and impressive aerodynamics. New reports are predicting a hybrid variant that will feature access ports for the plug-in hybrid system, most likely on the front fenders.
Interior Based on the Airflow Vision Concept
On the inside, the new 2023 Chrysler 300 will be more premium and more modern than all of its predecessors. Chrysler wants to implement the latest high-tech amenities and better use of upscale materials. Thanks to that, we hope to see a premium interior design with great comfort. Still, it is hard to predict how the cabin will look like. Some reports are predicting a mix of Alfa Romeo’s and Peugeot’s interior design.
Of course, a unique instrument cluster and steering wheel are a must. Some other rumors are writing about Chrysler’s Airflow Vision concept. In our opinion, both outcomes are likely to happen. The Vision concept comes with plenty of screens, a digital instrument cluster, and the next-gen Uconnect5 infotainment system.
This is the most interesting category, as the new 2023 Chrysler 300 will ride on hybrid power. Reportedly, the Pacifica minivan will have a great impact on the new brand’s sedan. Because of that, a 3.6-liter V6 engine with an electric motor and a 16-kWh battery is the most likely outcome. This hybrid powertrain also comes with the new e-CVT automatic transmission.
It is a plug-in hybrid setup with great fuel efficiency and great performance. FCA could also deploy one of the Peugeot’s plug-in hybrid variants, but it is a smaller output but it develops almost 350 hp combined. Lastly, Chrysler 300 sedan will ride on a famous Alfa Romeo Giorgio platform.
2023 Chrysler 300 Launch Date, Price
The next-gen 2023 Chrysler 300 will surely cost above $30,000, once it arrives. Interestingly, but sedan segment is slowly dying so it is a brave move by the FCA. The sales will reportedly begin in the last quarter of 2022. The manufacturer will reveal more details closer to the launch date.
