2015 Chrysler 300 Overview

Is the 2015 Chrysler 300 a Good Used Car?

The Chrysler 300 offers a healthy dose of user-friendly tech in all models. It’s a great choice if you want something flashier and better equipped than your average large car. Still, others in the class have better safety scores and more supportive seats.

Used 2015 Chrysler 300 Performance and Interior

The Chrysler 300 comes standard with a 292- horsepower Pentastar V6 engine, an eight-speed automatic transmission, and rear-wheel drive. While the base setup delivers quick acceleration, the available 363-horsepower Hemi V8 is more eager, especially during spirited driving. V6-equipped models are available with all-wheel drive. Fuel economy varies by powertrain and drivetrain. Expect 16-19 mpg in the city and 25-30 mpg on the highway, which is average for a large car. Although it’s decently fun to drive, the 300 exhibits body roll around turns. Ride quality remains the top priority throughout the lineup, even with the available sport-tuned suspension.

Befitting of its near-luxury aspirations, the Chrysler 300 four-door sedan has spacious seating for five, soft-touch surfaces, and standard niceties like leather seats, as well as heated, power-adjustable front seats. Some models offer ventilated front seats and rear outboard heated seats. The front and rear seats are comfortable but lack the lateral support needed during quick maneuvers. There are two complete sets of LATCH car-seat connectors in the rear outboard seats and a tether-only connection in the middle seat.

Standard equipment includes dual-zone automatic climate control, a proximity key (keyless entry), and push-button start. The standard Uconnect infotainment system is easy to use and features an 8.4-inch touch screen and a six-speaker audio system with satellite radio. Staying connected is a breeze with front- and rear-seat USB ports and Bluetooth for phone calls and audio streaming. Some used models have upgrades like a navigation system, remote start, a 10-speaker BeatsAudio sound system, a 19-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, and a dual-pane panoramic sunroof.

How Safe Is the 300?

The 2015 300 earned the highest score of Good in four out of five crash tests performed by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. However, it earns the second-lowest score of Marginal in the small overlap front test, which measures how safe occupants will be if the front corner of the vehicle collides with another object.

The 300 offers available safety features like a rearview camera, front and rear parking sensors, and rain-sensing windshield wipers. Upper trims and packages add driver assistance features such as lane departure warning, automatic high beams, forward collision warning, and adaptive cruise control.

Should I Consider Another Used 300?

The 2015 Chrysler 300 is part of the vehicle’s second generation, which began with the 2011 model year and includes the 2017 Chrysler 300. Changes over the years include the addition of standard leather upholstery and heated front seats for 2013. For 2015, the 300 received exterior and interior styling updates and an eight-speed automatic transmission with a rotary knob shifter.

Which Used Chrysler 300 Is Right for Me?

The 2015 Chrysler 300 comes in four trim levels: Limited, 300S, 300C, and 300C Platinum. The base trim offers plenty of tech features, leather upholstery, and a powerful engine, making it the best value in the lineup. If you’re looking for a nicer interior, the Chrysler 300C comes with heated outboard rear seats, a dual-pane panoramic sunroof, and navigation.

Although it may cost a little extra, you may want to consider a certified pre-owned 300. For Chrysler’s CPO 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.

2015 Chrysler 300 and Other Cars to Consider

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

Despite a few key differences, the Chevy Impala and the 300 have much in common. The Impala comes standard with a four-cylinder engine that offers great fuel economy, but it’s not very powerful. A V6 is available in some Impala models. It also earned better safety scores than the 300. However, the Impala lacks some of the 300’s standard amenities, such as leather upholstery, Bluetooth streaming audio, and a proximity key.

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

The Dodge Charger shares its platform with the 300, so it's no surprise that the two have similar driving dynamics. Still, the Charger is sportier than the 300. It has two high-performance trims that feature V8 engines and sport-tuned handling you can’t get in the 300. On the downside, the Charger has a below-average predicted reliability rating, and its seats lack support on long drives. Also, the Charger doesn’t come standard with the 8.4-inch Uconnect system or dual-zone automatic climate control, two features that are standard in the 300.

Which Is Better: 2015 Chrysler 300 or 2015 Ford Taurus?

The Ford Taurus has better safety and predicted reliability scores, a larger trunk, and uncommon available features, like massaging front seats and active park assist. However, the Taurus doesn’t have as much handling composure or standard horsepower as the 300, which is enough to turn some buyers away. Also, unlike the 300, the Taurus has a tricky infotainment system.
