Here are the latest rumors and facts regarding the 2018 Chrysler 300, an upcoming luxury sedan that will receive a redesign for the 2018 model year. The next-generation model will lose its trademark design in the favor of more elegant and luxurious styling.
Exterior and Interior Design
In the photos posted here you can see the current 2015 model. According to Ralph Gilles, head of design, the 2018 Chrysler 300 is going to be much different, loosing its iconic look. Its bulky design might be replaced by more elegant styling, bringing its aesthetic to a brand-new level. However, the redesigned model will still keep some familiar details which are typical for this model, such as its large front grille.
“Presence can come in many ways. The silhouette has to be unique. Whatever it is, wherever we end up, it has to be unique,” Gilles said.
Interior of the 2018 Chrysler 300 should also get a facelift. Designers have plans to use high quality, premium materials with soft-touch surfaces and aluminum and wood trims. If they want to use the latest technologies and modern Uconnect infotainment system, they should also redesign the dashboard and center console.
Engine and Performance
These are just rumors, because there are no official details, but it looks like the 2018 Chrysler 300 will come with a choice of two engines — a 3.6-liter DOHC V-6 and 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine. These are powering the current-generation model, but for the 2018 model year we expect boosted performance and increased figures. Current power units can produce 300 hp/264 lb-ft and 363 hp/394 lb-ft, respectively. The fuel economy should be improved as well, which means more than current 31 mpg on the highway. European market may also get a diesel unit.
2018 Chrysler 300 Release Date
The new 2018 Chrysler 300 is expected to make its debut during 2016 at one of the international auto shows, but won’t be released until 2017. Experts predict that its price will range between $33,000 and $34,000.
