2014 Chrysler 300 Review

The 2014 Chrysler 300 ranks midpack among large sedans. It has a potent roster of engines and a long list of standard features – including one of the best infotainment systems on the market – but its limited rear-seat headroom and so-so fuel economy hold it back.

Pros & Cons

  • Strong engines
  • Excellent infotainment system
  • Limited rear-seat headroom for tall passengers
  • Rivals are better on gas

2014 Chrysler 300 Overview

Is the 2014 Chrysler 300 a Good Used Car?

The 300 is a good choice if you appreciate its smooth performance, unique style, and long list of features. Still, many large car shoppers expect ample rear-seat space, which the 300 does not deliver.

Used 2014 Chrysler 300 Performance and Interior

All 300 models have strong acceleration, regardless of the powertrain. The standard 3.6-liter V6 engine produces 292 horsepower, while the 300S trim gets a boost to 300 horsepower. Two V8s are available to those looking for even more power. V8-powered models come with either a 5.7-liter engine that generates 363 horsepower or 6.4-liter V8 good for 470 horsepower (in the SRT trim). 

Fuel economy depends on the engine; it ranges from a so-so 19 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway with the base engine to a thirsty 14/23 mpg city/highway for the SRT model. V6-powered models feature an eight-speed automatic transmission, while both V8s come with a five-speed automatic. 

Despite its big-car proportions, the 300 has composed handling, accurate steering, and a calm, quiet ride. SRT models have sharper handling than the rest. Rear-wheel drive comes standard. All-wheel drive is available in all but the SRT trim.

With high-end materials and an attractive design, the five-seat 300 boasts an upscale interior. Most models come with leather seats and heated seats. Nappa leather upholstery, heated rear seats, ventilated front seats, and cloth sport seats are available. Both rows of seats provide good space and excellent support on longer treks, though the tallest rear-seat passengers may complain about headroom. For installing car seats, there are two sets of LATCH connectors on the rear outboard seats and a tether-only connection on the middle seat.

All 300 models come with dual-zone automatic climate control, proximity keyless entry, and push-button start. The standard Uconnect system features an 8.4-inch touch screen, a six-speaker audio system, Bluetooth, satellite radio, and a USB port. Uconnect is easy to use, thanks to its straightforward menus and controls. Notable upgrades include a dual-pane panoramic sunroof, a navigation system, a 10-speaker Beats Audio system, an 18-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, and remote start.

Should I Consider Another Used 300?

The second generation of the Chrysler 300 began with the 2011 model year and includes the 2017 Chrysler 300. The trims and features packaging changed for the 2014 model year. For 2015, the eight-speed automatic transmission became standard with all engines. Chrysler also discontinued the SRT trim, gave the 300 a style update, and added lane departure warning with lane keep assist to the available features list for 2015. Unless these changes are important to you, stick with a 2013 or 2014 model to save money.

Which Used Chrysler 300 Is Right for Me?

The 2014 Chrysler 300 comes in four major trim levels: 300, 300S, 300C (available in Luxury, John Varvatos Luxury, John Varvatos Limited), and SRT (available in Core and Premium). For most drivers, the base Chrysler 300 makes the most sense. It comes with plenty of standard features, a strong V6 engine, and easy-to-use technology. For a nicer interior without breaking the bank, the Chrysler 300C impresses with Nappa leather seats, ventilated front seats, and heated second-row seats. The John Varvatos editions offer even nicer upholsteries and interior accents. 

You may also want to consider a certified pre-owned 300. For certified pre-owned Chrysler vehicles, the original new-car powertrain warranty is extended to seven years or 100,000 miles. CPO vehicles also get a three-month/3,000-mile Maximum Coverage Care warranty. There are restrictions related to mileage and models, so read the Chrysler warranty page carefully.

2014 Chrysler 300 and Other Cars to Consider

Which Is Better: 2014 Chrysler 300 or 2014 Chevrolet Impala?

The Chevrolet Impala is a better choice for value shoppers due to its lower average price and greater fuel efficiency than the 300. Like the 300, the Impala has poised handling, a comfortable ride, and an impressive interior. However, if you want V8 power or a standard infotainment system, you’ll want to opt for the 300.

Which Is Better: 2014 Chrysler 300 or 2014 Toyota Avalon?

Though pricier up front, the Toyota Avalon’s top-notch reliability rating may equate to fewer repair bills down the road. Unlike the 300, the Avalon comes with a standard rearview camera. Its rear seats also feel roomier. Unless you need V8 power or want a lower starting price, go for the Avalon.

Which Is Better: 2014 Chrysler 300 or 2014 Dodge Charger?

The Dodge Charger uses the same platform and engine lineup as the 300. Both large sedans have precise steering, a comfortable ride, and a high-quality interior, though the Charger has less rear-seat headroom than the 300. The 300 also comes with more standard features, including dual-zone automatic climate control, the 8.4-inch Uconnect system, leather upholstery, and heated front seats. Overall, it’s the better used car.
