The Chrysler 300 is distinctive in many regards. It is the last of the large traditional rear-wheel-drive sedans from the domestic automakers. Cars like the Caprice, Crown Victoria, and Grand Marquis have all died or become fleet sale vehicles. Few modern cars can match the exaggerated boxiness of the Chrysler 300. Redesigned for 2011, the 300 has a toned exterior and more restrained interior. The 300 line now consists of the V6-powered 300/300 Limited and the Hemi-powered 300C. A 300 with a leather interior and power equipment is priced from the low $30,000s. Opt for the V8 and the 300 runs around $40,000, which is steep but comparable to the pricing of the Ford Taurus SHO. At any price, the 300 and its styling cues are decidedly unique.
