Drive proud with the new 2015 Chrysler 300C
(The Philippine Star) - December 30, 2015 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines - Out to meet, if not surpass, the standards of the decision-makers of the world, the 2015 Chrysler 300C is now out in the market and has come to the Philippines.

 

Hard work deserves a reward.

Chrysler President and CEO Al Gardner says the latest from Chrysler is set to be the most technologically-advanced sedan of its class. It’s been designed with the ideals of balance, elegance, sophistication, performance, and craftsmanship.

Big, bold, and proudly American, the 2015 Chrysler 300C has been built for the masters of the universe, the professionals, and experts who elevated themselves to king and queen status in their respective fields. The enhanced improvements – design, luxury, comfort, driving performance, fuel efficiency, and safety and security features – are meant to cater to people who know what they want, and set out to get it. They are the ones who demand more from themselves and expect the same from those around them. These people are not afraid to take charge and be in-charge. Much like the 2015 Chrysler 300C, these go-getters take pride in each conquest and they celebrate every single one of them.

“Beyond its head-turning iconic proportions and even more commanding Chrysler front-end grille, our new 300C is designed to reward hard-working individuals by delivering class-exclusive technologies, premium appointments and levels of quality,” says Gardner. According to him, the new Chrysler is the culmination of the company’s 60-year history. It has the soul of the 1955 300, the attitude of the 2005 300, and the style and sophistication that is the trademark of a count 300.

“The 2015 Chrysler 300C has more of everything you could ever want in a car of its class,” says Gardner. “With this latest car innovation, we want you to drive proud.”

Design and technology

The 2015 Chrysler 300C delivers more confident looks, expressive materials and excellent execution. At the front of the new 2015 Chrysler 300C, a redesigned fascia features a more sculptured surface, a taller and more prominent grille with its unique dimensional texture, and chrome grille surround. The grille contains the Chrysler wing badge which appears to float within the dramatic grille texture and highlights the new “face of Chrysler.” Nestled below the upper grille is an elegantly drawn chrome Mobius strip, which outlines the lower grille opening and extends outward, surrounding the new LED fog lamps that provide a consistent white illumination at the front. This new detail reinforces the Chrysler brand’s new design direction and provides the Chrysler 300C with even more visual presence. Bi-Xenon High-Intensity Discharge (HID) projector beam headlamps with adaptive forward lighting (AFL) better illuminate road curves ahead, while integrated LED-illuminated daytime running lamps (DRL) form a “C” shape for unmistakable brand identity.

From the side, unmistakably strong yet subtly executed shoulder lines pay homage to the Chrysler 300C series design heritage and define the correlation between front and rear wheel arches. A high beltline stays true to the Chrysler 300C sedan’s signature proportion, while its elegantly tailored chrome side window surrounds and chrome mirrors hint at the luxurious interior within.

Finishing the new Chrysler 300C sedan’s powerful rear stance is a new sculptured LED taillamp with an illuminated halo, providing a unique signature appearance. A restyled rear fascia has a more fluid surface and features a tailored chrome fascia trim accent. Below, a new lower valance in black provides visual width and lightens the appearance of the sedan. Last, a pair of elegantly drawn, polished exhaust tips is placed in the corners to give the Chrysler 300C an upscale athletic appearance.

Luxury and comfort

When designing the new Chrysler 300C, the team incorporated unique design elements and utilized authentic materials to create an interior identity that is comfortable yet beautiful.

The interiors boast of quilted Nappa leather, hand-sanded wood, and ultra-premium Poltrona Frau leather-wrapped instrument panel and console. All-new interior design elements include a standard 7-inch full-color driver information display (DID) and class-exclusive electronic rotary transmission shifter, plus Chrysler brand’s new three-spoke steering wheel with larger vehicle controls and die-cast paddle shifters.

The 2015 Chrysler 300C has platinum-chrome exterior details and 20-inch wheels. In addition, the newest Uconnect systems have been added with the segment’s largest 8.4-inch touchscreen display.

Driving Performance

The new Chrysler 300C is more capable, athletic-styled, and driver-focused than ever. For even greater V6 performance, the Chrysler 300C increases the standard 3.6L Pentastar engine’s output up to 286 horsepower at 6350 rpm and up to 340 N-m at 4650 rpm of torque. It also adds a unique sport-tuned dual exhaust system with a more distinctive sound. To make sure the added power and precision connects the driver to the road, its chassis features a new sport-tuned suspension with increased damping.

Fuel efficiency

The latest Chrysler sedan features class-exclusive TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission, now standard on every 300C. It balances performance with segment-leading highway fuel efficiency: Best-in-class V6 highway fuel economy with 3.6L Pentastar engine and unsurpassed V6 combined fuel economy.

The new advanced technological solutions include electric power steering and cast-aluminum axles and housing to reduce energy demand, weight and parasitic friction.

Advanced safety and security features

In addition to building on its “Top Safety Pick” credentials from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), the Chrysler 300C offers more than 80 safety and security features including many that are new for 2015. It highlights the latest driver-assist technology.

The Full-speed Forward Collision Warning-Plus provides autonomous braking and, under certain circumstances, slows or brings the vehicle to a full stop when frontal collision appears imminent. The Adaptive Cruise Control-Plus with Full Stop helps maintain distance from the vehicle and, under certain traffic conditions, can bring the vehicle to full stop without driver intervention. New Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist introduces subtle steering-wheel input to alert the driver of inadvertent lane departure and assist with corrective action.

The standard Keyless Enter ‘n Go feature activates interior lighting and enables passive cabin entry and trunk access through the driver’s personalized key fob. The new Chrysler 300C also includes a standard ultrasonic security system with an anti-tilt feature, which sounds an alarm if the vehicle is towed or raised on a jack.

The new standard Electric Power Steering (EPS) system provides added efficiency, added driving ease in low-speed situations and when parking, and tuned for added responsiveness during spirited driving.

The all-new cast-aluminum axles and axle housing provide weight savings and help to reduce parasitic friction.
