The swirling rumors about the new 2023 Chrysler 300 reveal that we can expect a comeback of this sedan next year. Also, many reports are already writing about specific details, including the sedan’s powertrain options and exterior design.
As far as we know, the new sedan will look completely different compared to previous generations. It should get more aggressive styling and a futuristic cabin, filled with many technology. Perhaps the most exciting news is that it will ride on a newer architecture like the EMP2 platform. That means we can expect it to be powered by a PHEV system.
2023 Chrysler 300 Redesign
Like before, the new 2023 Chrysler 300 will once again arrive in sedan body configuration. However, unlike the previous model, the new sedan will be completely redesigned. Chrysler plans to use the same larger grille flanked by LED headlights as we saw on the Airflow Vision concept. The lower fascia should look aggressive, and a two-tone hood is a possibility, along with various black trims.
On the side profile, the Chrysler 300 features 18-inch black wheels, nice lines, and sculpted lower door inlays. Considering that the next model will feature a PHEV system, we expect access ports to be placed somewhere on front fenders.
More Modern Interior
Inside, the new 2023 Chrysler 300 will be more modern than we can imagine. According to many gossips, the upcoming sedan will most likely borrow plenty of design cues from Chrysler’s Airflow Vision concept. Chrysler wants to make the cabin more competitive to stand up from other rivals. Thanks to a flat floor, this model comes with a spacious interior that’s mainly comprised of suede and leather materials.
So, we can expect Chrysler 300 to hosts the latest high-tech amenities and upscale materials. The Vision concept that was introduced last year was an instant hit. This model offers plenty of screens, a digital instrument cluster, and the next-gen Uconnect5 infotainment system.
2023 Chrysler 300 Hybrid Specs
As mentioned, the new 2023 Chrysler 300 is the sedan that will ride on the new platform. It will most likely use the same hybrid system we saw on the Pacifica minivan. This model comes with a 3.6-liter V6 engine and is available with an electric motor and a 16-kWh battery.
Interestingly, we got the information that it will also come with the new e-CVT automatic transmission. The new plug-in hybrid setup will reportedly provide excellent fuel efficiency and outstanding performance. However, the next rumored engine is one of Peugeot’s plug-in hybrid variants. This combined system should offer at least 350 hp.
Release Date, Price
The next generation 2023 Chrysler 300 will reportedly arrive next year, featuring a completely new look. From what we heard, the new sedan will ride on a new platform that should handle a hybrid system. Moreover, considering all updates and changes, the next-gen model will surely cost more than before.
Some experts presume that it will start at $30,000 once it arrives. The sedan segment is slowly dying, but FCA will make a brave decision to make this move. We should expect more details closer to the launch date.
