Chrysler first introduced the 300 back in 1955 as a high-performance luxury car built in very limited numbers. Often regarded as a forerunner to the muscle cars of the 1960s and 1970s, the initial 300 "letter series" was produced with coupe and convertible body styles and powered by V-8 engines displacing up to 6.8 liters. Discontinued in 1965, the nameplate returned briefly in 1970 and 1979, before being revived with the sedan we’re familiar with today. The modern-day 300 debuted in 2004 with a range of V-6 and V-8 powerplants, including a diesel for European markets. Built on Chrysler’s rear-wheel-drive LX platform which features components from the W211-generation Mercedes-Benz E-Class, the 300 was redesigned for the 2011 model year. As we venture into 2015, Chrysler introduced mid-cycle refresh for the second-gen 300 at the 2014 Los Angeles Show.

Much like the 2015 Charger, the revised 300 gains a significantly altered front fascia, featuring a larger grille and brand-new headlamps. The rear end is equally new, while the interior boasts the most refined materials ever to grace a 300. Although the two available engines remained unchanged for 2015, the 5.7-liter, HEMI V-8 received the company’s much-praised eight-speed automatic transmission. Read all about after the jump.

Updated 11/21/2014: We took a trip to the LA Auto Show this year, so we snapped a few pictures of the refreshed 2015 Chrysler 300.

Around back, the LED taillights received a unique signature, while the black valance and the prominent spoiler add a touch of sportiness to the sedan.

The 2015 300 gets a refreshed front fascia consisting of a much larger grille with a new mesh and revised LED headlamps. Down bellow, a chrome Mobius strip outlines the lower grille, which extends outward to embrace the reshaped LED foglamps.

Around back, the LED taillights received a unique signature, while the black valance and the prominent spoiler add a touch of sportiness to the sedan. The same high waistline and muscular shoulder lines are noticeable from the side. Additionally, seven new wheel designs are available for 2015, ranging from 17 to 20 inches in diameter.

Chrysler seems to have managed to recapture some of the 300’s original design, after failing to do the same with the pre-facelift, second-generation model.

Novelties also include a standard seven-inch display, the company's newest Uconnect system, and a brand-new, three-spoke steering wheel.

Updates continue inside the cabin, where higher-quality materials can be spotted all around, along with more wood and aluminum inserts, as well as a reshaped center console with a clean and classy design. The electronic gearshift lever is gone from the automatic models, replaced by the rotary selector found in the smaller Chrysler 200. Novelties also include a standard seven-inch display, the company’s newest Uconnect system, and a brand-new, three-spoke steering wheel.

Also contributing to the car’s more refined interior are the new cabin themes inspired by four American cities — La Jolla (California), Manhattan (New York), Detroit (Michigan), and Sausalito (California). The La Jolla Indigo/Linen combo is exclusively available for the 300 C Platinum, while the Detroit Black/Ambassador Blue is reserved to 300S models. The Sausalito Black/Linen goes into the 300 Limited and 300C, while the Manhattan Black theme is available across the entire lineup.

Drivetrain

There's is a bit of news in the drivetrain department though, as Chrysler gifted the V-8-powered 300 with its eight-speed Torqueflite automatic.

There’s nothing new under the hood for the 2015 model year, as both engines carry over unchanged. The same 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 cranks out 292 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of the torque in the base model, while the tried-and-true 5.7-liter, HEMI V-8 motivates the higher trim versions by means of 363 ponies and 394 pound-feet of torque.

There’s is a bit of news in the drivetrain department though, as Chrysler gifted the V-8-powered 300 with its eight-speed Torqueflite automatic. Previously, V-8 models were fitted with six-speed transmissions. With the new unit, 300C and 300C Platinum models are still capable of reaching 60 mph from a standing start in less than six second, but the automaker has yet to provide precise performance information.

Competition

Ford Taurus

2014 Ford Taurus High Resolution Exterior
- image 524403

Launched in 2010 and revised for the 2013 model year, the sixth-generation Ford Taurus is a front-wheel-drive sedan that’s more suited to compete against the Chevrolet Impala. However, if you fancy a Ford-badged car the size of a Chrysler 300, then the Taurus is the only option.

The entry-level sedan is powered by a naturally-aspirated, 3.5-liter V-6 that cranks out 288 horsepower and 254 pound-feet of torque. The available 2.0-liter, EcoBoost four-pot sends 240 horsepower and 270 pound-feet to the wheels, while the twin-turbo, 3.5-liter, EcoBoost V-6, which is available only with the range-topping, SHO model kicks in at 365 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of twist.

Ford’s largest sedan is priced from $26,780, while the SHO begins at $39,980.

Chevrolet Impala

Larger and more upscale than the previous model, the 10th-generation Impala debuted for 2014 model year. The full-size Chevy shares underpinnings with the Cadillac XTS and it’s available with a choice of three different powertrains.

The range begins with 2.5-liter, inline-four unit that delivers 195 horsepower and 187 pound-feet of torque, while the available 3.6-liter V-6 is rated at 305 horsepower and 264 pound-feet of torque. The third powertrain option is a 2.4-liter with eAssist "hybrid" that generates 182 horsepower and 172 pound-feet of torque. Unfortunately, the Impala doesn’t come with a V-8 drivetrain, leaving that privilege to the SS muscle sedan.

The Chevrolet Impala starts from $27,535. The top-level LTZ trim with the V-6 powerplant comes in at $36,580 before options.

Conclusion

2015 Chrysler 300 High Resolution Exterior
- image 578661

It was about time the 300 sedan received a facelift and thankfully Chrysler didn’t disappoint. Sure, there’s nothing new under the hood, but the eight-speed automatic is a much needed-addition to the 5.7-liter, HEMI V-8. I must confess I didn’t have high expectations from the 2015 300, which is probably why I think it looks surprisingly good on the outside. It takes me back to the first-gen model that was launched in 2005, and that’s a good thing in my book. I never really liked the second-gen 300, but that’s about to change with this facelift.

  • Leave it
    • No engine upgrades
    • Don’t get your hopes up for an SRT8 version
    • Tough competition

Confident looks, expressive materials and world-class execution make the new 2015 Chrysler 300 stand apart from the competition.

At the front of the new 2015 Chrysler 300, a redesigned fascia features a more sculptured surface, taller more prominent grille with a unique dimensional texture and chrome grille surround. The grille contains the Chrysler wing badge, which appears to float within the dramatic grille texture and highlights the new “face of Chrysler.” Nestled below the upper grille is an elegantly drawn chrome Mobius strip, which outlines the lower grille opening and extends outward, surrounding the new optional LED fog lamps. This new detail reinforces the Chrysler brand’s new design direction and provides the Chrysler 300 with even more visual presence. Bi-functional projector beam headlamps are available with adaptive forward lighting (AFL) to better illuminate road curves ahead, while integrated LED-illuminated daytime running lamps (DRL) form a “C” shape for unmistakable brand identity. New LED fog lamps are available and provide a consistent white illumination at the front.

From the side, unmistakably strong, yet subtly executed shoulder lines pay homage to the Chrysler 300 series design heritage and define the correlation between front and rear wheel arches. A high beltline stays true to the Chrysler 300 sedan’s signature proportion, while its elegantly tailored chrome side window surrounds and available chrome mirrors hint at the luxurious interior within. Seven new wheel designs, ranging from 17 inches to wider and wheel-well-filling 20 inches, provide the new 2015 Chrysler 300 with a planted, road-holding look.

Finishing the new Chrysler 300 sedan’s powerful rear stance is a new sculpted LED taillamp with an illuminated halo, providing a unique signature appearance. A restyled rear fascia has a more fluid surface and features a tailored chrome fascia trim accent. Below, a new lower valance in black provides visual width and lightens the appearance of the sedan. Last, a pair of elegantly drawn, polished exhaust tips are placed in the corners to give the Chrysler 300 an upscale athletic appearance. These key design elements provide a visual tie to the all-new Chrysler 200 sedan, while keeping each models’ unique personality.

New 2015 Chrysler 300 offers more than 80 safety and security features; leverages state-of-the-art driver-assist features
In addition to building on its “Top Safety Pick” credentials from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), the Chrysler 300 offers more than 80 safety and security features, including many that are new for 2015. New available features for the model year include Full-speed Forward Collision Warning-Plus, which provides autonomous braking and, under certain circumstances, slows or brings the vehicle to a full stop when frontal collision appears imminent.

Adaptive Cruise Control-Plus with Full Stop helps maintain distance from the vehicle ahead and, under certain traffic conditions, the system can bring the new 2015 Chrysler 300 to full stop without driver intervention. New Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist introduces subtle steering-wheel input to alert the driver of inadvertent lane departure and assist with corrective action.

New for 2015, 9-1-1 call/Assist Call connects Chrysler 300 occupants directly with emergency-service providers via built-in data connection with a push of a button, a feature exclusive to Chrysler Group’s Uconnect Access service.

The vehicle’s standard Keyless Enter ’n Go activates interior lighting and enables passive cabin entry and trunk access through the driver’s personalized key fob.

Electric power steering (EPS)
New standard EPS system provides added efficiency, added driving ease in low-speed situations and when parking, and tuned for added responsiveness during spirited driving
All-new, lighter weight axles for RWD and AWD
All-new cast-aluminum axles and axle housing provide weight savings and help to reduce parasitic friction
Sport mode (Included on 300S, 300C with V-8 and 300C Platinum models)
Enthusiast-desired Sport mode instantly transforms the sedan’s performance and personality by:
“S” gear selector enables sport engine and transmission calibration, more responsive accelerator pedal calibration and permanent paddle-shift mode
“Sport” button enables sport-tuned steering calibration and temporary paddle-shift mode, in addition to sport engine and transmission calibration, and increased responsiveness of the accelerator pedal calibration. Chrysler 300S AWD and 300C Platinum AWD models benefit even more as Sport mode turns AWD “on” (if off) and enables rear-biased torque for improved dynamics
Both “S” gear and “Sport” button provide blistering-quick gear changes, reducing shift times by 37 percent (250 milliseconds versus 400 milliseconds) and can hold the desired gear without unexpected shifts, including at the redline
