When it comes to automotive excellence, Australians enjoy an edge over their American brethren. They get to experience the hard-driving, HEMI-fitted 2015 Chrysler 300 SRT, a model not found in U.S. showrooms.
That's a major boon to car enthusiasts in Australia. The new 300 SRT has been turning heads since its debut. Car critics and consumers alike are being bowled over by its dashing looks, powerful engine and luxury interior.
To be sure, there's a lot to love about Chrysler's newest performance sedan. We'll describe 3 attributes below that have dazzled owners and would-be buyers.
A vehicle like the 300 SRT is built for comfort and utility. The moment you slide behind the steering wheel, you'll experience the luxurious, body-hugging seats. You'll also notice a wide array of features at your disposal.
Leather seating, made from 100% Nappa leather, conforms to the body. In addition, the seats are heated and ventilated, ensuring you and your passengers remain warm when the climate is brisk and chilly.
Automatic dual-zone air conditioning gives you and the front passenger the flexibility to select temperatures that cater to your respective preferences. Meanwhile, a humidity sensor, standard in the 2015 Chrysler 300 SRT, improves visualisation by automatically defogging the cabin.
A leather-wrapped steering wheel offers easy-to-access controls to the electronic vehicle information centre (EVIC). You're thus able to obtain real-time performance-based data without taking your hands off the wheel.
That's merely the tip of the iceberg. The cabin of this extraordinary sedan is chock full of useful features designed to improve your driving experience.
The 6.4-litre, V8 HEMI is what distinguishes the 300 SRT available to Australian consumers and the model displayed in U.S. showrooms. The engine is massive, producing 347 kW of power and a staggering 631 Nm of torque. Its impressive power ensures efficient operation at cruising speed. Its high level of torque guarantees a fast launch that quickly reaches that speed.
There's plenty of muscle under the 300 SRT's bonnet. Whether you're punching the accelerator to merge with faster-moving traffic or simply want to enjoy the sedan's lift-off power, you'll love the HEMI engine.
Subtle and meek aren't the words that come to mind when describing the 300 SRT's exterior. The sedan's aggressive styling radiates a distinct sense of self-assuredness.
Its black grille, enclosed within a chrome perimeter, is at once refined and brash. The vehicle's low ride height gives it a daunting appearance that suggests an unassailable stability. Its large 20-inch wheels offer more than just superior handling; they give the sedan a confident air. Whether the sedan is approaching or departing, it makes a lasting impression.
The 2015 Chrysler 300 SRT rivals its predecessor in terms of luxury, power and style. To experience the sedan in action, book a test drive at your Chrysler dealer. Discover why so many Australians have one in their garages.
