What’s new for this Chrysler 300 S in 2021?
New for 2021 is that the Chrysler has discontinued the upscale for models Chrysler Limited and Chrysler 300 C, leaving only the models Touring, Touring L, and 300 S.
Both models Touring L and 300 S receive some new equipment, such as blind-spot monitoring, rear-cross-traffic alert, and rear and front parking sensors.
This year, Chrysler made the Red S Appearance package standard for the 300S model. This packet is included unique 20-inch wheels, special badging, and gloss-black exterior trim.
A Comfort Group package is now available on the top two trims and brings heated rear seats, leather upholstery, power tilt-and-telescoping steering column, ventilated front seats, and more convenience features.

What is the price for the new Chrysler 300 S?
As we mentioned there are three models and that :
– Touring and his price is $31,940.
– Touring L and his price is $35,115.
– 300 S and its price is $38,890.
Our recommendation is to buy a new Chrysler 300 S, which offers a powerful V-8 engine, has great comfort and luxury. If you opt for the cheaper Touring L model keep in mind he comes with the standard 3.6-liter V-6 engine and can be had with rear- or all-wheel drive.
Performance, Engine, and Transmission
In the field of large cars, the new Chrysler 300 is available with Hemi V-8 engine with 363 horsepower and is unusual in rear-wheel-drive layout. All-wheel drive exists but only as an option and that and only with the standard 292-hp 3.6-liter V-6 engine.
During our testing on Chrysler 300 S, with a V-6 engine with rear-wheel drive, acceleration from 0 to 60 mph was for 6.3 seconds while with a V-8 engine the result was 5.3-second.
In terms of its size, the new Chrysler 300 S is very easy and simple to drive. The helm isn’t the most talkative, but the body is very well controlled and the chassis fits in very well.
20-inch wheels and the stiffer suspension on the Chrysler 300 S make driving very solid and that is something that is expected of a large vehicle.
MPG in Real-World and Fuel Economy
The new Chrysler 300 S with his 3.6-liter V-6 engine under the hood lags far behind its competition when it comes to fuel economy. During our testing of 300S the data we obtained matched the EPA combined estimate of 30 mpg in the real world but still, the competition as it is Toyota Avalon fared much better beating the Chrysler by 4 mpg.
If you decide to buy the Hemi 5.7-liter V-8 engine keep in mind that this large vehicle has a high consumption of gas and that on average from 19 mpg combined per the EPA’s yardstick.
Cargo, Interior, and Comfort
The luxury Chrysler 300 S is coming with a lot of equipment including power-adjustable front seats with heat and adjustable lumbar support, leather seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, illuminated front, and rear cupholders, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.
Heated steering wheel, heated rear seats, heated and ventilated front seats, and a power-adjustable steering wheel, exist as an option only for basic models but not for the new Chrysler 300 S.
An interesting fact about Chrysler is that it uses soft-touch rubberized plastic with a leather-grain pattern are in order to cover upper door panels and the dashboard on every model 300.
Something that can be found as a remark to this model is that the texture feels nice but looks artificial. Аs with all large vehicles, this model can accommodate up to six manual boxes in the trunk. If you fold the rear seats the number increases to ten boxes. These rear seats can be folded in a way of 60/40, but keep in mind that they do not overlap completely flat.
Connectivity and Infotainment
The infotainment system Uconnect which is installed in this model deserves the highest rating because is easy to use, snappy performance, and intuitive menu layout.
