2015 Chrysler 300 Overview

Is the 2015 Chrysler 300 a Good Used Car?

The 2015 Chrysler 300 is a good used large car. Its ritzy interior looks and feels like that of a luxury car, with premium materials and straightforward technology to keep you well-connected. Best of all, you can get lots of these features in the lower trims levels. Drivers will enjoy the 300's performance, highlighted by two powerful engines and a balanced ride.

This is a highly competitive class, however, and a majority of rivals have more to offer. Many competitors tout superior gas mileage, higher safety ratings, more supportive seating, and better driving dynamics. Test drive other large cars before you buy.

A new large car isn’t an option if your budget is less than $25,000. If you’re committed to finding a new vehicle that fits your price range, a midsize car is a nice compromise. There are several top-notch, roomy options with starting prices just under $24,000. Consider the 2019 Toyota Camry, the winner of our 2019 Best Midsize Car for the Money award. This sedan offers a smooth ride, great gas mileage, and lots of tech features, including Apple CarPlay and an intuitive infotainment system.

2015 Chrysler 300 Versus the Competition

Which Is Better: 2015 Chrysler 300 or 2015 Dodge Charger?

The 2015 Dodge Charger and the Chrysler 300 are built on the same platform. That said, the Charger is a lot more athletic than the 300, offering two high-performance trims that feature a powerful V6 or V8 engine and a sport-tuned suspension. However, the 300 is a better option for everyday driving, with comfier seats and better fuel economy than the Charger. Additionally, most shoppers will likely prefer the 300’s more upscale cabin and numerous features.

Which Is Better: 2015 Chrysler 300 or 2015 Chevrolet Impala?

A few key differences separate the 2015 Chevrolet Impala and the Chrysler 300. The Impala's base four-cylinder engine produces modest power but good fuel economy, while the 300’s standard V6 feels strong but is less fuel-efficient. The Impala is available with a stronger engine, but it still lacks some of the 300’s impressive standard features, such as leather upholstery, an infotainment system with Bluetooth streaming audio, and proximity keyless entry. Both large cars are solid choices, so pick the one that best meets your needs.
