Whereas Chrysler up to date the 300 for 2023, it’s teasing one thing that, as of this put up, is meant to drop in per week’s time. Whereas folks like us would flip if it was some sort of SRT Pacifica, that’s extremely uncertain. We’re fairly certain it’s going to be some sort of Chrysler 300.
Chrysler is being obscure on the main points, which isn’t out of the norm for one thing like this. The teaser, which is on Chrysler’s fundamental website, options pink brake calipers behind wheels that might solely come from a 300. No particulars are given besides Chrysler says that it will likely be “one of probably the most highly effective and opulent particular version automobiles in Chrysler Model historical past.” I’m praying it’s a brand new SRT 300.
We all know the present LD platform that underpins the 300/Charger and the LY platformed Challenger are on their method out. It’s why Dodge is giving us so many wild particular editions. Nevertheless it’ll be a very long time coming if it is a particular SRT 300 as a final hurrah. As I discussed, for years Dodge has been getting all of the efficiency goodies.
That wasn’t all the time the case although as Chrysler provided two generations of the 300 SRT: the first-gen 300 SRT-8 and the second-gen 300 SRT, which was discontinued in 2015. That final 300 SRT was basically a 300 Scat Pack. You bought it if the Charger SRT was too sporty for you. It mixed the luxurious of the 300 with the efficiency of a Scat Pack. Nevertheless it’s bizarre they stopped providing it. I imply, who wouldn’t need an enormous rear wheel drive American luxurious sedan powered by an enormous 6.4-liter 477 horsepower V8? It’s a cruise missile. However with how badly Chrysler has wanted product, right here’s to hoping that that is one thing genuinely particular for the model earlier than it goes in on EVs.
