- "The 2015 Chrysler 300's attention-grabbing styling, elegant interior and composed road manners convey an overall classiness that rivals other large sedans." -- Cars.com
- "The Chrysler 300 is unique. In a market increasingly subdivided to satisfy every possible need, the machines themselves can actually get harder to differentiate. ‘Unique’ is one of the highest compliments we can pay. Long live the 300." -- AutoWeek
- "This redesigned, third-generation model looks more distinguished inside and out. It now plays better with your gadgets. It offers enhanced safety features and there's now one transmission across the board. But otherwise, the 2015 Chrysler 300 carries on as before with a classic combination of V6 and V8 power, rear-wheel drive and a full-size sedan footprint. And that's not a bad thing. This big American sedan still manages that rare feat of making you feel like a million bucks, minus the millionaire stress." -- Edmunds
- "Only slightly new but certainly improved, the 2015 Chrysler 300 remains a top contender in the full-size sedan segment." -- Left Lane News
