Chrysler 300: Bagging the Awards In

Author: Tracy Dawson
Sharing its platform with the Dodge Magnum wagon and the Dodge
Charger sedan, the 2006 Chrysler 300 is a sedan that is leaning
towards the luxury level. It is offered in four trim levels
which comprise of the base, the Touring, the 300C and the 300C
SRT8. The base and the Touring trim levels hold V6 engines. The
other two hold V8s. The 5.7 V8 engine which is owned by the 300C
has the Chrysler's Multi-Displacement System. This system
functions to deactivate four cylinders under cruise conditions
so as to save on fuel.

What is standard for the 2006 Chrysler 300 sedan is luxury. It
comes with a totally luxurious passenger room that is more than
spacious. The interior holds well-appointed and designed
features like satin silver accents along with an elegant analog
clock. It exudes refinement and sophistication. The accents are
made of genuine California walnut or the available
industry-first tortoise shell-style accents. These accents are
found on the vehicle's power tilt and telescope steering wheels,
shift knob, and its front and rear door pull handles.
