If you want a rear-wheel drive sedan with a V8 engine, your choices these days are limited. One alternative is the Mercedes-Benz S 560 that lists for $99,900. Then there’s the BMW 750i with an MSRP of $96,950. Or there’s the Chrysler 300C that has a list price of $41,095.
Now, we’re not implying the Chrysler 300 is the equal of the 7 Series or S Class, but the point is obvious. sedans that offer substantial size, a V8 engine, and rear drive are an endangered species in this era of front-wheel drive crossovers. And this is where the Chrysler 300, along with its running mate, the Dodge Charger, are putting their stakes in the ground. If you seek a comfortable luxury car in the classic American tradition, you have come to the right place. And if you don’t need a V8, well, that’s OK, too. The V6-powered Chrysler 300 models also have plenty to recommend them.
