2017 Chrysler 300 Release Date, Specs and News

2017 Chrysler 300 Release Date, Specs, Price – Although the interior of the new Chrysler 300 for 2017 may not feel as plush of upscale as a European luxury sedan, you still get value with its cabin furnishings. The cabin comes furnished with extensive soft-touch materials and rich finishes, and its trim lineup also adds the two color-tone schemes and visual flair. Its date of release is still contentious at the moment but our sources at Chrysler who didn’t want to be mentioned due to obvious reasons alleged the vehicle will probably be released during the 1st Q of next year.

Tech wise, one of our favorite stand out is the 8.4” Uconnect touchscreen interface that mates crisp graphics and large buttons with a logical menu structure. Some features worth waiting for in the new sedan include the Beats Audio system, the Alpine system and the Harman Kardon system. Others are the Siri Eyes Free and the drag-and-drop functionality.

Given its dimensions, the 300 promises its occupants of ample interior space. The rear seats offer its occupants lots of leg-and headroom, while the adjustable driver seat and telescopic-and-tilt steering wheel are especially generous.

The cargo volume, however, isn’t that much relative to other large sedans that offer in excess of the 16.3 cubic feet of trunk volume the 300 offers. Other downsides to owning the 300 include a limited rear visibility, uninspiring braking performance, and less backseat space relative to other large sedans.

But if you can’t live with that, we suggest you shop around before committing. Some of its alternatives include the vastly improved American-made 2017 Chevy Impala, the quiet and smooth riding LaCrosse 2017, the rear wheel drive Hyundai Genesis, and the well-appointed and crisp Kia Cadenza. Although, if you value luxury and attitude, the redesigned 2017 Chrysler 300 is on top of the game.

300 Limited, 300S, 300C, and the 300C Platinum are the trims you will be presented with once the 2017 Chrysler 300 goes live in dealerships next year. Both the hellcat and SRT8 trims have a separate review.

2017 Chrysler Town and Country Release Date, Specs and News

2017 Chrysler Town and Country Release Date, Specs – There is a completely new minivan in the works called the 2017 Chrysler Town and Country vehicle being released. This is going to be the first minivan that Chrysler is building from the ground up or rather from scratch and it is going to be a very interesting decision to make it like this. So far the leaked spy photos and pictures that have been circling the media show us that they may actually pull through with this sort of a look and type of design.

What is seen so far is that the new Town and Country design will incorporate a puffed-up Chrysler 200 look. This by no means seems as a bad idea but there is an initial thought that the design might be or rather should be slimmer. The powertrain is going to be a plug-in hybrid design which will enable better fuel economy ratings. As the vehicle is still getting under wraps we do not have the expected amount of information so far on all the latest details, which is surprising as they are planning to release it in just a few months’ time.

This is a surprising thing that is happening as Chrysler is keeping most of the details still a mystery and they are perhaps holding their cars until the first showcasing of the car is announced. We are looking forward to actually seeing the 2017 Chrysler Town and County in action and assume that it is going to be an important release for this upcoming year. Here we have a certain amount of information which may help you get updated on the current situation about the Town and County minivan so read them all in this review.

The 2017 Chrysler Town and Country is going to incorporate a completely new exterior design, that much is for sure. As there are not many photos being released on how the car is actually going to be designed it can be tough to judge the appearance, but based on the camouflaged vehicle that has been seen roaming around, the Town and Country will get a new kind of a design. The changes appear to be most noticeable at the front side as it is getting a completely new front fascia. It is going to be based on the Chrysler 200 vehicle but with a more dominating presence. It is going to adopt a sleeker styling manner and will also add some Dodge elements to its outer layer. This design cues that are going to be used will initially make the minivan seem taller than it actually is but it will be much lighter than its appearance makes it.

Looking at the side profile of the Town and Country, we get a look which is based on the 700C concept. This is perhaps a good thing as that design adopts some pretty handsome features to its design. But fortunately this new vehicle excludes the use of all the crazy side windows that the concept comes with. The rear part is entirely different than the concept is and actually looks more upscale. The combination of the best things transferred front the concept combined with some fresh features make the vehicle look good in so many ways.

Interior

The interior of the 2017 Chrysler Town and Country is a greater mystery than the outside. There is even less released information about the inside of the car than we were able to see of the outside. Some few photos give us a new kind of appearance that we hope gets to be transferred to the production level of the Town and Country minivan. What is an interesting addition is that he Dodge-orientated steering wheel is going to be utilized here and may prove to be one of the most important parts inside the car. The instrument cluster is going to feature digital elements and there is going to be a completely new infotainment system used as well. The wood trim is also announced and is going to be combined with metallic accents and a rotary gear selector. Other tech goodies that may appear inside the car are the Uconnect interface with an 8.4” screen and a possible digital screen in the instrument cluster.

Engine

Officially speaking, the engine options for the 2017 Chrysler Town and Country remain unconfirmed for now, but there are a lot of rumors and guesses being mentioned. It is possible going to use a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 combined with a 9-speed automatic transmission. The biggest news that was mentioned is the possible plug-in hybrid powertrain which is going to raise the fuel efficiency and make the vehicle much more useful. We do not have the exact details still about this new and it may appear that the car gets to be released without one on its official release date, and a hybrid option gets to be added a bit later.  Other possibilities also include a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine in the talks as well. Some of the biggest news is also the mention of an electric-assisted AWD system which is provided by a rear single electric motor.

The car is most certainly going to appear on the market by 2017 and is going to come with a price tag of around $26,000. The new Town and Country model also ranks pretty close to the leading minivans, like the 2017 Toyota Sienna and the 2017 Kia Sedona.

2017 Chrysler 200 – Release Date & News

The new 2017 Chrysler 200 impresses on various aspects including on its interior appointments, engine power and consumption, and on exterior design. Additionally, it offers an easy-to-use touchscreen interface, a strong V6 engine, and excellent safety crash test scores. Its date of release should be expected in July 2017.

This is the freshest model from Chrysler in terms of the latest redesign tweaks. The fuddy-duddy demeanor it had is a thing of the past now. This head-turner offers a smooth ride and trendy looks synonymous with buyer’s expectations of what a modern vehicle should be. With a name to brag about and a reputation worth upholding, the new model is artful and elegant.

Interior wise, the soft-touch, quality materials are tastefully crafted, the controls have a crisp layout, and the ambience is simply out of this world. The controls aren’t just beautiful to the eye but are also built to function with relative ease.

It’s more of a mixed bag beneath its bonnet, though. Sadly, the four-cylinder performance is a bit pokey and it’s perhaps the only notable downside you’ll get while nitpicking. On the brighter side though, there is a brisk 3.6L V6 engine – it’s the best prick that will ensure your winter traction is impressive, and with its punchy output, it undoubtedly offers an athletic handling especially if you opt for the S model. According to the some information we have, the car will reach the speed of 0-60 in 5.5 sec.

Except for the interior room and the lackluster four-cylinder engine, Chrysler seems to have ticked all the right boxes with the 200. You might also check out what the competition offers to be affirmative before committing. Some of them include the 2017 Ford Fusion, the often sidelined but athletic and fun-to-drive 2017 Mazda 6, and the 2017 Honda Accord. Even in the face of such “hostility,” the new 2017 Chrysler 200 is nonetheless difficult to beat when it comes to good looks.

2017 Chrysler 200 Engine Specs

Beneath the hood of the 2017 Chrysler 200 is an apathetic four-cylinder 2.4L engine mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission system which forwards the power – 184 hp and 173 lbs. ft. of torque to the front wheels.

For those looking for more motivation, an optional 3.6L V6 engine rated at 295 hp and 262 pounds-feet of torque is available under the hoods of every trim except the base LX trim. This engine also gets the Sport mode that sharpens both response and transmission, and also decides the amount of torque it should send to the rear axle.

A time of 6.2 seconds is what you’d require to get past 60 mph with the 200s AWD. this therefore means, the 200 is among the best in the segment in terms of acceleration. However, the four-cylinder needs 9.0 seconds for the same sprint.

Finally, EPA says the V6 FWD four-cylinder 200 model should return 36/23/28 mpg on the highway/city/combined, and 32/19/23 mpg with the V6 FWD.

Price & 2017 Chrysler 200 Release Date

Word on the street allege the new 2017 Chrysler 200 should be expected mid-next year. As for the MSRP estimate, a window sticker of $21,995 is inevitable.
