You might think that the 2017 Chrysler 300 is getting a little gray around the temples. After all, 2017 marks its 13th model year without a major update. That first iteration of the current generation 300 back in 2005 impressed with its long dash-to-axle rear-drive proportions, muscular flanks, and big, Bentley-on-a-budget egg-crate grille. And its solid body structure and Mercedes-Benz E-Class-derived chassis, which Chrysler has improved and evolved over the ensuing decade, delivered a pleasing over-the-road dynamic that had been largely absent in big American sedans for decades. Nevertheless, 13 years is a long time.
But the Chrysler 300, like fine wine and the ballads of Frank Sinatra, just seems to get a little better each year. The 2015 models received a mild facelift that updated the front and rear appearance while maintaining the 300’s sophisticated urban look. And an all-new 4th-generation Uconnect infotainment system makes its debut for 2017. The 2017 Chrysler 300 is available in four variations: the $32,340 limited, $35,675 300 S, $38,635 300C and $42,770 300C Platinum. All-wheel drive is a $2,500 upcharge on all models
