Used Car: 2013 Chrysler 300 Review

Review Last Updated: 9/29/14

The 2013 Chrysler 300 offers gratifying acceleration, premium interior materials and user-friendly technology features, according to reviewers.

The 2013 Chrysler 300 is ranked:

The base 2013 Chrysler 300 comes with a V6 engine and eight-speed automatic transmission, and the strong acceleration and smooth transmission shifts satisfied test drivers. A 5.7-liter V8 is available, and critics wrote that it is responsive, powerful and has a nice rumbling exhaust note. The high-performance SRT8 model comes with a 6.4-liter V8. V8 models get a five-speed automatic transmission. Rear-wheel drive is standard, and all-wheel drive is available with the V6 and 5.7-liter V8. According to the EPA, the V6-powered Chrysler 300 gets up to 19/31 mpg city/highway, which is normal for the class. Most reviewers reported that the Chrysler 300 glides comfortably over bumpy roads and handles surprisingly well for a large car, adding that it has nicely weighted steering.

Automotive journalists said the 2013 Chrysler 300 has a sophisticated interior design and premium materials. Many reviewers noted that the 300’s front and rear seats are spacious and comfortable, though a few expected more rear-seat head- and legroom for taller passengers. Some critics pointed out that rearward visibility could be better. The 2013 Chrysler 300 has a 16.3-cubic-foot trunk, which is on par for the class. The 300 comes standard with leather upholstery, heated front seats, Bluetooth and Chrysler’s Uconnect infotainment system, which features an 8.4-inch touch-screen display. Critics said that Uconnect is easy to use. Available features include navigation, a rearview camera, adaptive cruise control, a 19-speaker Harman Kardon stereo system, rear park assist, heated rear seats and blind spot monitoring.

Other Cars to Consider

The 2013 Buick LaCrosse impressed critics with its handsome interior design and first-rate cabin materials. The LaCrosse eAssist trim has a mild-hybrid powertrain and achieves very good fuel economy for the class.

Test drivers were pleased with the 2013 Toyota Avalon’s powerful V6 engine and smooth-shifting automatic transmission. They also said that its dashboard controls are user-friendly and its rear seats offer copious amounts of head- and legroom.
