Looking for a balance between power and efficiency? The 3.6L DOHC VVT Pentastar® V6 engine is available in every Chrysler 300 and may be the perfect co-pilot for you. This valve variable timing engine puts approximately 292 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque at 4,800 rpm at your fingertips, giving you optimal efficiency and control.
You won’t be sacrificing mileage for power, either. This power transfers through a standard 8-speed AutoStick transmission, boosting fuel economy to an EPA estimated 19 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway.^ Those trophies stashed in your garage will have a little company as well, as the 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine was recognized as one of the top 10 engines by WardsAuto, a world-leading provider of auto industry news, data, and analysis.
If you’re a fan of old-school V8 muscle, we have an option for you as well, in the Chrysler 5.7 HEMI® V8 engine. Available in the 300S, 300C and 300C Luxury Series models, this HEMI is mated with a 5-speed transmission for a road-gripping 363 horsepower and 394 lb-ft of torque.
Thanks to Fuel Saver Technology, the HEMI V8 engine optimizes fuel efficiency by seamlessly switching from eight cylinders to four during cruising to receive a powerfully efficient 16 mpg in the city and 25 mpg highway* without sacrificing vehicle performance or capability.
