Only 2300 Units of 2023 Chrysler 300S Will Be Sold – Report
In September of last year, Chrysler introduced the 2023 300S as its final HEMI-powered vehicle. The sedan with a 6.4-liter V8 was restricted to 2,000 units, which were all sold out within 12 hours of the order books being opened. It appears that individuals who missed out on the prior opportunity may have one more chance to purchase a V8-powered Chrysler.
According to dealership records, the firm will also introduce a more economical 300S version of the sedan for the 2023 model year. It is expected to be powered by a 5.7-liter V8 engine connected to an eight-speed automated transmission and driving the rear wheels. This less powerful model may also be beautifully outfitted with options like heated and ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, sophisticated driver-aid systems, and others.
The 300S, like the 300C, will have a very limited manufacturing run. According to the online journal, just 1,450 instances of the V8-powered car will be built in 2023, making it even more exclusive than the 300C range-topper.
It’s also worth noting that Chrysler will sell a 300S equipped with the 3.6-liter V6 Pentastar engine, which produces 300 horsepower (220 kilowatts) and 264 pound-feet (358 Newton-meters) of torque. This less expensive variant, however, is substantially slower than the 300S and 300C – 7.1 seconds to 60 mph (96 km/h) vs 5.3 and 4.3 seconds for the 300S and 300C, respectively.
According to current information, the 300S V8 will start at $50,975 plus destination expenses. In turn, the 300S V6 will be less expensive, starting at $43,750 before options. In comparison, the sold-out 300C began at $56,595 including destination, making it the most-priced 2023 Chrysler 300. In addition, the 300S V6’s manufacturing will apparently be restricted to 850 vehicles.
The good news is that the reservation books for the 2023 300S in both V6 and V8 variants don’t appear to be open at this time, indicating that you haven’t missed your last chance to acquire a new Chrysler 300.
