At this stage, the folks at Cadillac and Lincoln—and perhaps Audi and BMW, too—had better start taking the Chrysler Group’s full-size flagship more seriously. With an all-new, seriously upscale interior, the range-topping 2012 Chrysler 300 Luxury Series doesn’t just push the envelope for premium American sedans, it knocks it down and stomps on it. That’s not just hyperbole, either. This latest addition to the Chrysler 300 lineup offers a surprising number of exclusive and best-in-class benefits, wrapped in a clean, sophisticated design that achieves best-in-class fuel efficiency.
The 2012 Chrysler 300 Luxury Series is scheduled to go on sale beginning in the first quarter of 2012, with MSRPs that range from $40,145 for the 300 Luxury Series to $42,895 for the 300C Luxury Series; tack on an extra $2,350 for AWD models.
