Chrysler has announced the launch of the special 300 Motown Edition - a new model that pays tribute to "the Motor City’s resurgence and determination through Detroit-born style and world-class ingenuity." The new 300 Motown Edition will go on sale in the spring of 2013 at a starting price of $32,995.
On the exterior, the new special edition 300 sedan will be identified by bright chrome front and rear fascia accents, mirror caps, door handles and daylight-opening surround. Mopar has also added a special bright chrome grille with seven sculpted horizontal blades and a new set of 20" polished "heritage" design aluminum wheels, giving the 300 Motown Edition the distinguishing characteristics that does justice to its designation. Customers can also choose from among four exterior colors for the special edition 300, including Bright White, Gloss Black, Deep Cherry Red and new Jazz Blue. Black "Motown" fender badges round out the pretty significant body dress-up of the vehicle.
For the interior, Chrysler combined a black trim environment with leather seats in Pearl White Nappa leather, and featuring "Motown" logos embroidered on the front seat-backs. The center stack, instrument panel, steering wheel, gauge cluster and door panel elements are being offered in Piano Black, and as a contrasting element, Chrysler added authentic a Black Olive Ash wood trim and satin silver finished accents.
Under the hood, the model keeps the usual 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine with an output of 292 horsepower and combined with a ZF eight-speed automatic transmission.
New 2013 Chrysler 300 Motown
If cars are the heart of the Motor City, music is its soul. The new 2013 Chrysler 300 Motown pays tribute to the Motor City’s resurgence and determination through Detroit-born style and world-class ingenuity. Harking back to the days when bright work ruled Woodward and Jefferson Avenues, this limited-edition Chrysler flagship sedan includes bright chrome front and rear fascia accents, mirror caps, door handles and daylight-opening surround, and a unique Mopar bright chrome grille with seven sculpted horizontal blades. Large 20-inch polished “heritage” design aluminum wheels provide an elegant look, while its touring-tuned suspension delivers world-class levels of ride, handling and comfort. Completing this Chrysler flagship sedan’s curb appeal are black accented Chrysler wing badges and “Motown” fender badges that transcend the city’s rhythm and spirit. Available exterior colors include Bright White, Gloss Black, Deep Cherry Red and new Jazz Blue.
Inside, the new 2013 Chrysler 300 Motown is further proof that style and luxury can come from a place like the Motor City. Unique Pearl White Nappa leather seating with perforated inserts are surrounded by a black interior environment for a contemporary look. Tying in the contrasting interior theme are black piping and accent stripes on the seats, while a debossed “Motown” logo on the front seatbacks provide thoughtful detail. Extensive use of Piano Black on interior center stack, instrument panel, steering wheel, gauge cluster and door panel elements provide a uniquely lacquered and highly detailed appearance. Completing this special-edition interior environment are authentic Black Olive Ash wood trim and satin silver finished accents.
