[Update: The 2023 Chrysler 300C has been revealed.]
Recently, Chrysler teased a brand-new efficiency version to be revealed on the eve of the Detroit Automobile Program. The day has actually shown up, and also Chrysler has actually continued to be tight-lipped concerning exactly what it prepares to reveal, however based upon the specifications in the intro (and also Chrysler’s petite schedule), we have a respectable concept what we could see this night.
Chrysler’s intro consisted of an image of the wheel from the 300 car, which not that lengthy back was supplied in an SRT version. The large, red Brembo caliper behind the face of this alloy recommends that we can be checking out a rebirth of the old SRT formula, most likely with the mix of the 6.4-liter Hemi V8 and also eight-speed transmission– a pairing that was never ever supplied on the old SRT version.
While this definitely isn’t clear-cut, Chrysler stated the brand-new version will certainly be “among one of the most lavish and also effective scandal sheet automobiles” in its brand name background. The SRT version based upon this generation of the 300 left the marketplace in 2015 with 470 horse power. Various other versions with the 6.4-liter deal as high as 485, so there’s clearance right here for a brand-new version if Stellantis is so likely.
There’s additionally the opportunity that a supercharged Hemi can be presented, or that AWD can go into the mix, however provided the sundown condition of Chrysler’s present internal-combustion powertrains, it’s not likely that such a degree of growth cash would certainly have been tossed at a soon-to-be-discontinued version. Hey, Stellantis, we would certainly still enjoy to see the Opposition SRT-10 Simply stating.
Join us this evening at 6 p.m. EDT to figure out specifically what Chrysler has in shop.
