Review: 2015 Chrysler 300C

When the first-generation Chrysler 300C came to the market, everyone was wowed by its gangster-inspired styling. The fact that rappers fitted 20-inch chrome spinners on them and slammed them to the ground (with hydraulics for good measure) made it a must-have for local socialites and “artistas”. Unfortunately, like MTV, hype only gets you so far. And soon, the 300C became a victim of its own success. People complained about the lackluster dynamics and the interior fit and finish—it all became apparent: it wasn’t a socialite. It was a social climber.

Review: 2012 Chrysler 300C 3.5 Pentastar V6 8AT

When the 300C first bowed in 2005, it brought a new-found element of menacing appeal to the executive car segment thanks to its “gangster” style. Elements such as the high shoulder line, chopped roof, and vertical grille all made it a stand out next to the soap-bar aesthetics of its competitors. Some point to Bentley influences, but owners were more than happy to embrace the ultra exclusive association. So when Chrysler had to pen the all-new 300 C, the expectations were certainly high. Can the all-new 300C break new ground while connecting would-be buyers to Chrysler’s illustrious past?

MIAS 2012: Chrysler Introduces America's First 8-Speed AT Sedan

CATS Motors, Inc. has one of the bigger displays over at the Manila International Auto Show (MIAS) and for good reason: they're introducing a lot of exciting new products for the public. Among them is the 2012 Chrysler 300C with the first ever eight-speed automatic fitted into an American car.

Fitted to the 3.6-liter V6 Pentastar (292 horsepower), the new ZF eight-speed automatic helps increase fuel economy by reducing the gaps normally associated with up- and down-shifting. The 2012 300C also benefits from a new Sport mode for quick shifts for a more performance-oriented acceleration and higher shift dynamics. All-in-all, the 2012 300C promises to achieve fuel mileage figures in excess of 13 km/L. Aside from the eight-speed ZF automatic, the 2012 Chrysler 300C also features an all-wheel drive system for greater all weather traction and stability.

Chrysler's flagship design is also fitted with all the latest safety equipment such as electronic stability control (ESC) along with seven airbags, front-row reactive head restraints, hill-start assist, rain-brake support and ready-alert braking.

Also new at Chrysler's MIAS booth is the re-designed Town & Country with an all-new grille design and refreshed interior.
