The 2012 Chrysler 300 has it all: style, performance, luxury, affordability and whatever else you can conjure up. It’s available to consumers, starting at $28,470 for purchase, or for lease at $339 per month for 36 months. While the exterior design has remained mostly the same over the years, the 2012 Chrysler 300 has many new and innovative features. The bi-xenon headlights not only surpass standard halogen lights, in terms of brightness energy conservation, but they also turn with the wheels, illuminating curves before standard lights would be able to. Not only that, but with this Adaptive Forward Lighting, the lights are automatically adjusted according to the car’s speed and slope that it’s driving on. The large and signature grille provides additional appeal, while maximizing air flow under the hood.
Noise-reducing technology has been included with the 2012 Chrysler 300, making it possibly the quietest ride in its class. Control mounted on the steering wheel allow the driver to change audio settings, adjust cruise control and connect to callers through a Bluetooth calling system. The touchscreen navigation system is pretty hard to get used to according to consumer reviews, however once the user becomes familiar with it, it’s a breeze to use. Leather seats and wood trim add a luxurious look to this already dazzling vehicle. 50.7 cubic feet of cargo space should be more than enough for most car owners to store basic luggage and other accessories. The sunroof covers 70% of the entire roof, so riders can have a nearly panoramic view of the sky, whether it’s nice out or not. We’re not saying that you should buy a car solely on its cup holders, but the heated and cooled cup holders on the 2012 300 are truly remarkable.
Two engine options are available to potential car buyers with the 2012 Chrysler 300: powerful and ferocious. The first is a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 with 292 horses and obtaining 31 MPG highway and 19 around town. This option includes an 8-speed automatic transmission. When you buy the Chrysler 300C, you won’t need to worry about not having enough power. It proudly boasts a rip-roaring 5.7-liter HEMI V8 with 363 ponies and 25 MPG on the highway, with 16 in-town. A front and rear multi-link suspension system ensures that this luxury sedan has some of the smoothest handling in its class.
The automatic AWD capabilities detects when road conditions become unsafe for simple 2WD and will employ an AWD system before the driver is even aware of the unsafe conditions. Electronic Stability Control and Traction Control will automatically adjust power to select wheels and brakes, in order to bring the 300 back on course, during the event of a skid or slide. 4 anti-lock disc brakes and Brake Assist, Ready Alert Braking, Hill Start Assist and Rain Brake Support help make the Chrysler 300 one of the safest cars for slippery conditions. A blind spot monitoring system alerts the driver of potential collisions when changing lanes. While they have been known to have some mechanical problems and breakdowns in past models, the 2012 Chrysler 300 gets approval from crash test ratings, consumers and test drivers alike. So go test drive one for yourself today. The worst that can happen is you won’t like it.
