2017 Chrysler 300 Driving Impressions


The Chrysler 300 maneuvers with stability and composure, and rides with comfort, as a big car should. It also corners on winding roads like a big car. In the Limited and 300C, there’s a good amount of body roll, and some soft heaving during acceleration and braking. Still, the electric power steering makes light work of the turn-in, and the suspension is sorted well enough to hustle at a fair pace. You just can’t push things.

The 300S has a firmer suspension that better controls the body motions, without being too firm. On the 300S and 300C with the V8 engine, there’s a Sport mode on the rotary gear selector that quickens steering response and resistance, throttle response, and cuts shift time form 400 to 250 milliseconds, using the paddle shifters. There’s a second Sport button on the dash that can select these settings separately and individually.
