The 2023 Chrysler 300C: A Legend’s Last Hurrah


  • Only 2,000 will be available for purchase in the US.

  • Pricing starts at $55,000. 

  • You can reserve one online now. 


The Chrysler 300 is an iconic American car, and it’s been that way for nearly 70 years. In honor of the historic model and to underscore the end of the current-generation car, Stellantis is releasing a special edition 2023 Chrysler 300C. This limited-run vehicle is powered by the effervescent 6.4-litre HEMI V8 engine, aka the 392, and will be one of the last Chrysler 300s ever produced.

The Chrysler 300 made its debut in 1955 and quickly became known for its stylish design and luxurious features. The model took a brief hiatus in the late 1990s but made a triumphant return in 2005. Since then, it has continued to represent American luxury and forward-thinking design.

The 2023 Chrysler 300C is a fitting send-off for this legendary car. It features the 6.4-litre 392-cu.-in. HEMI V8 engine that delivers 485 horsepower and 475 lb.-ft. of torque along with a TorqueFlite eight-speed transmission which sends the power to the rear wheels. This power allows the 300C to reach 60 mph in just 4.3 seconds, cover the quarter-mile in 12.4 seconds, and tops out at 160 mph.

Completing the 300C’s mechanicals are red four-piston Brembo brakes, a 3.09 limited-slip differential, active damping suspension, and 20×9-inch forged wheels.  Other visual cues will include black chrome accents on the grille and lower fascia, and blacked-out headlamp and taillamp bezels. It will be offered in three exterior colors: Gloss Black, Velvet Red, and Bright White.

The cabin will be fitted with black Laguna leather and silver stitching. The front seats are embossed with the new 300C logo. Silver stitching, carbon fibre, and Piano Black touches will also be found throughout the interior. Standard features will include a premium 19-speaker Harman Kardon audio system and the 8.4-inch Uconnect infotainment system Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

Unfortunately, production of the Chrysler 300 will come to an end following the 2023 model year. Even so, it’s not too late to get one. You can reserve one of the 2,000 2023 Chrysler 300C, price from $55,000, online at reservation.chrysler.com. Canadian pricing will be announced at a later date.
