What's New For 2015

The Chrysler 300 gets a fairly major update for 2015. Both the interior and the exterior of the car have been refreshed. A new grill and front fascia are the most immediately recognizable changes, but new wheels have also been added along with a few other minor cosmetic enhancements. Inside, a new steering wheel greets the driver along with a 7-inch full color driver information display.

On the technology front, the Chrysler 300 improves with the addition of a "Sport" button to tighten things up on twisty roads. Improved functionality from Chrysler's Uconnect system is also new for 2015, with roadside assistance, theft alarm notification and an improved navigation system.


  • Basic Warranty: 3 Years / 36,000 Miles
  • Drivetrain Warranty: 5 Years / 100,000 Miles
  • Roadside Assistance: 5 Years / 100,000 Miles

A vehicle's warranty can significant impact your maintenance costs after you drive off the dealer's lot, and it's important to understand the different parts. Typically, a new car warranty includes a Basic warranty, which covers everything except the wear items such as brakes and tires; and a Drivetrain warranty, that covers all the parts that make the car move, such as the engine and transmission

Loading Comparison...


The Chrysler 300 offers the boldest styling in the segment, and for 2015 it gets even bolder. Chrysler’s full-size flagship sedan has been redesigned front and rear and features a larger, more imposing front grille, while inside is an improved interior.

The front end of the 2015 Chrysler 300 looks more aggressive but also less gaudy than before, with thinner, more subtle chrome detailing, giving it a more sophisticated, upscale look. A big grille has been a signature design cue since the introduction of the Chrysler 300 in 1955.

Inside, the 2015 Chrysler 300 gets its best interior yet, with a new steering wheel, a new color driver’s display, an updated version of Chrysler’s Uconnect infotainment system, as well as many attractive interior finishes and materials. We think it’s one of the nicest cabins in the class. Designers describe the Chrysler 300 interior as full of contrasts between old-world, handcrafted touches and new, modern cues. Seats are comfortable and roomy, and feel more lounge-like than those in competing vehicles.

Back-seat passengers have plenty of leg- and headroom, on par with the class. Two USB ports in the rear of the center console let rear passengers plug in their phones and other devices. Cargo space for the Chrysler 300 remains at 16.3 cubic feet, less than both the Chevrolet Impala and Ford Taurus.

Engines carry over unchanged from the previous model. The standard engine is a 3.6-liter V6 that makes 292 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque, or 292 hp and 264 lb.-ft. in the sportier Chrysler 300S. The standard V6 is perfectly capable, with plenty of power on tap in most driving situations. An optional 5.7-liter V8 Hemi, available on rear-wheel-drive models in nearly every trim puts out 363 horsepower and 394 pound-feet of torque. The V8 is more powerful and better sounding than the V6, and it’s especially fun in the 300S model.

Every 2015 Chrysler 300 comes standard with an 8-speed automatic transmission, which is now controlled from the center console by a rotary knob instead of the traditional gear shifter used on the 2014 model. The knob is easy to use and opens up more space in the cabin, creating an airy feeling between driver and passenger. 2015 Chrysler 300S and Platinum models get steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters.

Fuel economy for the 2015 Chrysler 300 is good for a car of its size. Rear-wheel-drive V6 models achieve an EPA-estimated 19/31 mpg City/Highway, while all-wheel-drive V6 models are rated at 18/27 mpg. V8-powered models don’t fare nearly as well, with an EPA rating of 16/25 mpg City/Highway.

The Chrysler 300 is a large car, and as such isn’t exactly light on its feet. But because of its rear-wheel-drive platform, it’s more capable and handles demanding roads better than some of its competitors. A new sport mode on Platinum and V8-powered models further sharpens performance and handling; drivers choose between normal, comfort, and sport settings, which adjust steering, throttle and shift points. In sport mode, we found the Chrysler 300 felt more agile on tight, twisty roads.

Competitors to the 2015 Chrysler 300 include other full-size sedans including the Buick LaCrosse, Chevrolet Impala, Ford Taurus and Toyota Avalon. Those interested in the top-of-the-line Platinum trim might also consider sportier and similarly priced (yet smaller) Cadillac CTS.


The 2015 Chrysler 300 is available in four trims: 300 Limited, 300C, 300S, 300C Platinum. The standard engine is a 3.6-liter V6 with rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. An optional 5.7-liter V8 is available with rear-wheel drive only. All models get an 8-speed automatic transmission.

Chrysler 300 Limited ($31,395) comes with dual-zone automatic climate control, leather trim, power windows/locks/mirrors, power 8-way driver and passenger seats with power lumbar, heated front seats, keyless entry, tilt-and-telescoping leather-wrapped steering wheel with multifunction controls, charcoal wood trim, cruise control, 8.4-inch touch screen display with the Uconnect interface, Bluetooth phone connectivity and streaming audio, six-speaker audio system with satellite radio capability, front USB port, auxiliary audio jack, two rear USB ports (charge only), 60/40-split folding rear seats, automatic headlights, LED daytime running lights, LED tail lights and 17-inch aluminum wheels with all-season performance tires. AWD models get standard 19-inch wheels.

300S ($34,895) gets a 300-hp version of the V6 engine with cold-aid induction, sport-tuned suspension and sport tuned-exhaust plus remote start, unique interior trim, steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters, backup camera, a front overhead console with lamp and HomeLink universal receiver, upgraded 10-speaker Beats audio system with subwoofer, unique exterior styling with black chrome accents, LED fog lamps and 20-inch black-painted aluminum wheels.

300C ($37,895) gets heated and ventilated 12-way power front seats, heated steering wheel, a dual-pane sunroof, olive ash burl wood trim, additional interior lighting, navigation with real-time traffic, a six-speaker Alpine premium audio system, auto-dimming rearview mirror, auto-dimming driver’s side exterior mirror with memory function and 18-inch polished aluminum wheels.

300C Platinum ($42,395) adds a hand-sanded, natural matte wood trim, leather armrests with seamed stitching, heated/cooled cupholders, upgraded leather upholstery, a leather-wrapped dash and 20-inch polished aluminum wheels.

Many of the Platinum features can be added as options to the Limited and 300C models. Other options include a Harman Kardon audio system with 19 speakers and subwoofer.

Safety equipment on all models includes advanced multistage front driver and passenger air bags, front and rear side curtain airbags, inflatable driver’s knee airbag, front seat-mounted supplemental side air bags, ABS, brake assist, electronic stability control and traction control.

Optional safety packages include the SafetyTec 1, which adds front and rear parking sensors, full-speed forward collision warning, adaptive cruise control with full stop feature, blind spot monitoring and rear cross path detection (300C and Platinum). The SafetyTec 2 package is available on all trims except the Limited and includes advanced brake assist, rain-sensitive windshield wipers, lane departure warning with lane keep assist, auto high-beam control, full-speed forward collision mitigation and adaptive cruise control with full stop feature.


The 2015 Chrysler 300 looks cleaner and more modern compared with the 2014 model, with revised styling that brings it more in line with the smaller Chrysler 200 for increased visual brand continuity. Most noticeably, the imposing, mesh front grille is 33 percent larger than the outgoing model and features the Chrysler wing logo floating in the middle. It’s flanked by new headlamps that include LED daytime running lights. The redesigned front-end also gets new LED fog lamps. The sportier S model gets a black chrome mesh grille, as well as black headlamp surrounds.

The side view of the Chrysler 300 hasn’t changed much for 2015. Large, highly sculpted wheel arches anchor each end of the car, with a high character line that runs straight from the front wheel over the door handles and into the tail lights. Wheel sizes and designs vary depending on trim level and equipment, ranging from 18-inch alloys to 20-inch black aluminum wheels. The 300S is distinguished by its aggressive side sills.

From the rear, the Chrysler 300 looks wide and substantial. For 2015, new LED tail lamps, which resemble those on the Chrysler 200, feature a bright ring around the perimeter. The rear of the 300 has a slightly lifted look. 300S V8 models get a decklid spoiler. New twin integrated exhaust tips have a more horizontal shape for 2015, replacing the round tips used on the 2014 model.


The interior of the 2015 Chrysler 300 is the best yet. Interior designers say they wanted the cabin to be a place of contrasts, between old-world styling and the latest technology. They seemed to have achieved their aim, with a cabin that uses classic and tasteful color combinations, large color displays and many connectivity features.

For 2015, Chrysler 300 comes with an 8-speed automatic transmission controlled by a rotary knob instead of the traditional gear shifter used on the 2014 model. The knob is easy to use and opens up more space in the cabin, creating an airy feeling between driver and passenger. 2015 Chrysler 300S and Platinum models get steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters.

Fit, finish and materials are some of the best in the class, beating the Ford Taurus, which, generally speaking, has grown long in the tooth. We find the Chrysler 300’s design even more tasteful than that of the Chevrolet Impala, which is greatly improved over its previous generation. Chrysler 300 Limited models get upscale features like dual-zone climate control, leather trim and a glossy wood trim finish.

300C Platinum models are the most luxurious, with gorgeous, hand-sanded matte wood accents and leather trim crafted by Poltrona Frau, the Italian furniture company that also upholsters exotic cars, including the latest Porsche Panamera Exclusive edition.

300S interiors get unique seats and interior trim, though we found them more spartan and noticeably less luxurious than their C and Platinum counterparts.

All Chrysler 300 models feature a color touch screen for the center stack that uses Chrysler’s Uconnect interface. We find the Chrysler Uconnect system more user-friendly than My Ford Touch, though we prefer the menus and layout of Chevrolet MyLink, which uses capacitive touch and includes a locking storage compartment behind the screen. To keep with the old-world tradition, the Chrysler 300 features an analog clock atop its display.

On the instrument cluster, a new digital TFT display sits between the analog speedometer and tachometer, showing speed, navigation instructions, vehicle information and more. While the display is large and easy to read, the trip odometer and speed displays are on separate screens, preventing the driver from seeing both at once.

Seats are roomy, comfortable and well cushioned, good for freeway cruising and road trips. Heated, power front seats are standard, and ventilated front seats come on 300C and Platinum models.

Rear seats have plenty of leg- and headroom, on-par with the class. Two USB ports in the rear of the center console let rear passengers charge their phones and other devices. Cargo space for the Chrysler 300 measures 16.3 cubic feet, less than both the Chevrolet Impala and Ford Taurus, though the standard 60/40-split folding rear seats make it possible to carry more if needed.

Driving Impressions

The Chrysler 300 is a large car so it isn’t exactly light on its feet. But because of its rear-wheel-drive platform, it’s more capable and handles demanding roads better than some of its competitors.

The 3.6-liter V6 is perfectly capable for most driving situations. Acceleration is smooth and linear, and rarely sounds like it’s working hard.

The 5.7-liter Hemi V8 is another animal altogether, and while it offers more power and thrust, we could feel the big motor’s added weight on winding roads.

The 8-speed automatic transmission is smooth and nearly imperceptible, except when a surge of power is needed for passing at highway speeds or climbing a steep hill. Most of the time, the transmission cruises in a high gear for fuel economy, though you’ll get some extra oomph out of sport mode on cars so equipped by downshifting. For those who want to click through the gears, 300S and Platinum trims get steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters.

The electric power steering feels smooth and comfortable, and appropriate for a car of this size. A new sport mode on Platinum and V8-powered models helps even further with performance and handling. Drivers can choose between normal, comfort and sport settings, which adjusts steering, throttle and shift points. In sport mode, we found the Chrysler 300 felt more agile on tight, twisty turns.

Active safety features on the 2015 Chrysler 300 are competitive with most luxury brands, and include adaptive cruise control, which can bring the car to a full stop, and can even automatically get the car moving again in stop-and-go traffic (provided the car is stopped for less than two seconds at a time). Forward collision warning will fully stop the car at speeds of less than 20 mph, and lane departure warning with lane keep assist will steer the car back into its lane if the driver accidentally veers. Sensitivity for all of these features can be adjusted; they can also be turned off completely.

We took a 2015 Ford Taurus on a competitive drive, and found it lacking in nearly every way compared to the Chrysler 300. In comparison, the steering and handling felt sloppy, and although we had good power from Ford’s V6, it felt uninspired. In a subsequent drive in the Chevrolet Impala, which we also like, we found it felt more like a big car, with not quite as much pep off the line as the Chrysler 300’s V6.

Fuel economy for the 2015 Chrysler 300 is good for a car of its size. Rear-wheel-drive V6 models achieve an EPA-estimated 19/31 mpg City/Highway, while all-wheel-drive V6 models are rated at 18/27 mpg. Understandably, V8-powered models don’t fare nearly as well, with an EPA rating of 16/25 mpg City/Highway.


The 2015 Chrysler 300 is a top choice in the large sedan segment with bold styling, ample power, a luxurious cabin and available all-wheel-drive.

The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.


This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.


Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
