Final Chrysler 300C Leaves Brampton Assembly

End of the Alphabet

  • 300C a 6.4L farewell to the big sedan

  • 300 line over by end of 2023


It’s the last of the letter cars. The final Chrysler 300C has left the production line in Brampton, ON, shortly before we expect the 300 as we know it to end completely.

The 2023 Chrysler 300C was a special edition of the big sedan. Fitted with a 6.4L Hemi V8 that made 485 hp, it was a tribute to the classic 1950s and 1960s 300 models, known as the letter cars because they were named 300B, 300C, 300D, etc. Like this final edition, they were extra powerful versions of the 300, fitted with some of the most powerful Chrysler engines offered at the time.

Chrysler brought back the 300C in 2005, and fitted it with the 5.7L V8, the company’s best at the time. As the 300 model was upgraded, so too was the 300C. After a two-year pause starting in 2021, the company brought back the 300C one last time for 2023.

“Chrysler brand is proud to mark the legacy of the Chrysler 300C as a true automotive icon, one of the original muscle cars representing bold American luxury,” said Chris Feuell, Chrysler brand chief executive officer. “As we celebrate the last HEMI-powered 300C off the line with our Brampton team members, we’re also excited to work together as Chrysler brand moves forward to a sustainable all-electric future as part of the Stellantis Dare Forward 2030 strategic plan.”

The last 300C left Brampton on December 8th. The final 2023 Chrysler 300 will leave the factory “no later than December 31.” It’s not clear what the plans for the model are. Chrysler announced that the end of the year is the end of the 300, but we haven’t seen any indications of a model to replace it.

As for the plant, Brampton will continue to build Stellantis vehicles. The company announced that it will spend $3.6B to retool starting in 2024, and that production will restart in 2025. Brampton will then support a flexible electric architecture and will build the next-generation Jeep Compass.
