Chrysler is updating the current 300S model with the introduction of two new packages, called Exterior and Interior Sport Appearance Packages. The Detroit-based manufacturer also adds updated color and materials.
Standard with the 300S V8 model, and available on the 300S V6 model, the new Exterior Sport Appearance Package features larger air intakes and integrated LED fog lamps. These fog lamps are exclusive to the Exterior Sport Appearance Package and are comprised of a strip of eight horizontal LEDs each. Below the Gloss Black headlamps and dimensional grille is a larger body-color painted Mobius strip with 20-inch (19-inch with AWD) wheels. At the rear, Chrysler 300S model’s new Exterior Sport Appearance Package adds a deck-lid spoiler to complement the dual exhausts.
New for 2017, the Interior Sport Appearance Package comes with premium perforated leather performance seats with high-bolstered contours in suede. In addition, these front performance seats are heated and ventilated. New Light Gray Diesel colored accent stitching can be seen on door and center console armrests, instrument panel brow, steering wheel as well as the leather-wrapped sport seats, or on the new performance seats.
The Chrysler 300S model increases the standard 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine’s output to 300 horsepower and 264 lb.-ft. of torque, plus adds a unique sport-tuned dual exhaust system with a more distinctive sound. For customers who want more performance, the Chrysler 300S can be had with a 363-horsepower 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine with four-cylinder mode Fuel Saver Technology.
The Chrysler 300S AWD pairs the 300-horsepower 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine with the TorqueFlite eight-speed transmission and AWD system for up to 27 mpg on the highway.
