The 2013 Chrysler 300 SRT8 is causing people to take another look at the Chrysler 300 line-up. If you have looked at the 300 before and weren't interested; the SRT8 might cause you to think again. It boasts new features and an improved powertrain with a HEMI engine at its heart. Here are 3 reasons why the SRT8 deserves a second look.
The 2013 Chrysler 300 SRT8 Is High End Power: The Chrysler 300 is known as a great family vehicle, but with the addition of the V8 HEMI, it is a family sedan with plenty of power. In fact, it has more kW output than a 2012 Corvette! The throttle response is instant and provides plenty of torque to get up to speed quickly when you need to merge on the highway, pass, or just get moving quickly. The HEMI engine in the SRT8 really makes the perfect combination of luxury and sedan.
The Italian Influence: Redesigned Exterior and Interior: With Fiat's new stake in Chrysler, the influence of Italian design has really found its way into the SRT8. The updated interior is a huge improvement over older models, with large interior spaces featuring bold styling cues. The best of Italian leather working has also found its way into Chryslers; if you've never experienced Italian leather you have to, at least once. On the exterior, the body kit pulls off an understated aggressive aesthetic mirroring the SRT8s blend of luxury and power. The kit includes lowered sills, a small lip spoiler, and a beautiful fascia with a blacked-out grille.
Smooth Ride - At Any Speed - And Adaptive Damping Suspension System: Chrysler's engineers didn't just slap a bigger engine in an old model and call it a day. The adaptive damping suspension system and other powertrain improvements give the SRT8 a smooth ride at any speed. The adaptive damping suspension system makes the big sedan drive as if it were a nimble auto by responding to road conditions and driver input, producing a great ride. While you will feel the extra power from the engine in the throttle, you won't feel it jarring you around the seats.
