2011-2014 Chrysler 300C cars (and Lancia Thema) with Luxury Series

Each of the cars in that lineup had the V6 with the eight-speed automatics; V8 engines were optional on 300S and up, while 300S carried a 300 hp V6 (the standard V6 was 292 hp). All had leather seats. Starting late in 2013 and carrying into 2014, the 300S V8 did not require the Luxury Group, and a black-painted roof was optional on S and SRT cars.

Updated September 9, 2013

The 2012 Chrysler 300 launched an optional eight-speed automatic with the V6; the eight-speed became standard in 2013. The 2012 300 SRT8 packed 465 horsepower; and 2012 also brought the Beat-equipped 300 S and high-end Chrysler 300C Luxury Series (nГ©e Executive).

The Chrysler 300C’s distinctive headlights sat next to LED daytime running lamps, which together formed a “C” shape. For better aerodynamics and visibility, the windshield was raked back 3 inches, while rolled-framed doors with thinner pillars improved outward visibility by 15%. A new dual-pane panoramic sunroof let in more daylight; the 300 also had chrome daylight openings, chrome front and rear fascia accents, and optional 20-inch polished-aluminum wheels.

The Lancia Thema version was extremely similar, but had a slightly different grille and interior.

The base engine on Chrysler 300 was a V6 pushing out 292 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque, with better highway mileage than the 2010 V6 and gas mileage rated at 21 city, 31 highway (on AWD models, due to extra demand on the driveline, weight, aerodynamics, and higher-resistance tires, that drops to 18/27). The 300S model had a 300 horsepower version of the V6 engine and a “sport mode.”

The eight-speed automatic dropped V6 0-60 times to 6.6 seconds, while raising gas mileage by around 3-4 mpg. The five-speed automatic, still used on Hemi cars, maintains the same gear ratios, with revised axle ratios. The 5.7 liter Hemi went up slightly to 363 horsepower, but gas mileage increased; 0-60 times were quoted at under 6 seconds.

Europeans also got a 188 hp or 236 hp (their choice) VM diesel. with better gas mileage, more power, quieter operation, and reportedly better durability than the Mercedes diesel used in 2010.

Standard on the 300C for Canada were ventilated front seats and heated rear seats, wood/leather-wrapped, heated, power tilt and telescoping steering wheel, driver memory: seat, steering wheel, radio and mirrors, power backlight sunshade, SmartBeam HID headlamps with auto-leveling, heated/cooled cup holders, Uconnect Touch 8.4 Media Center with 8.4-inch screen, auto-dimming exterior mirror with auto adjust in reverse, and driver and passenger lower LED lighting.

There were four models (and an SRT8 for the 2012 model year): Touring (with V6), Limited (with V6, leather, heated front seats, fog lamps, backup camera, 18-inch chrome wheels, bright door handles, and more), 300C (standard V8), and 300C AWD.
