The Chrysler 300 S – Affordable, Powerful, and Beautiful
When you think of a luxury sedan that packs tons of power, the Chrysler 300 S may not be the first car that comes to mind, but it should be. You may be thinking of a more “luxurious” brand-name car like the Lexus LS 460 F Sport. However, when you compare these vehicles side-by-side, the Chrysler 300 S is not only just as luxurious and powerful, but also much more affordable.
Both the Lexus LS 460 F Sport and the Chrysler 300S have powerful engines. The Lexus LS 460 F has a 386-horsepower 4.6-liter V8 engine. The Chrysler 300S has a V6 engine that puts out 300 horsepower, but buyers can upgrade to a 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine that puts out 363 horsepower.
The Lexus has a sleek and polished appearance inside and out. Features like bolstered seats, a leather grip steering wheel, aluminum interior trim, LED fog lamps, and a spindle grille come standard on the LS 460 F Sport.
The interior of the 300S is smooth, comfortable, and stylish. Standard interior features like heated leather seats, a leather wrapped steering wheel, and a nickel finish analog clock all add an upscale feel. On the exterior of the Chrysler are 20-inch hyper black aluminum wheels, BSW all season performance tires, LED fog lights, and black LED tail lamps.
Staying entertained and connected is important. Whether you are driving to work or going on a long road trip, fun makes every drive better. That is why the Chrysler 300 S comes with standard technology features such as Sirius XM radio (one-year subscription included), a 8.4-inch touchscreen with the new UConnect system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, HD radio, and integrated bluetooth voice command. The Lexus LS 460 F Sport has a few entertainment features including a touchscreen multimedia system with navigation, and audio and climate controls,
Price is still a huge selling point, and at the end of the day wouldn’t saving some cash be great? Especially when the Chrysler 300 S packs nearly the same amount of power, just as many luxury and tech features. That being said, the Chrysler 300 S starts at just $45,645 with the V8 engine. The Lexus 460 F Sport has a much higher starting price at $73,495.
See our point now? The Chrysler 300 S is powerful, luxurious, and full of all the features you could need for a fraction of the price. Check out our inventory of Chrysler 300 S vehicles at Kendall Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram here.
