2016 Chrysler 300S Alloy Edition: Delivering Better Performance and Style

Article by Andrew Christian, on March 11, 2016

The bold 2016 Chrysler 300S Alloy Edition, built with cutting-edge technology and materials, offers a unique and world-class execution. The new 300S model had a classic Dark Bronze grille on the front. Meanwhile, the Gloss Black dimensional-textured grille comes with a Titanium-finished Chrysler wing emblem.

The Gloss Black headlamps and body color mirror caps add up to the sporty appearance of the vehicle. A drawn Dark Bronze Mobius strip, which can be found below the commanding grille, outlines the lower grille opening and extends outward, surrounds the LED fog lamps.

The signature proportions of the Chrysler 300 are emphasized more as the Gloss Black DLO moldings are paired with Dark Bronze 20-inch aluminum wheels (19-inch for the AWD). Furthermore, its rear stance involves a Titanium-plated Chrysler wing emblem and a Dark Bronze-finished "300S" emblem.

A pair of drawn Titanium exhaust tips also enhances the sporty and modern look of the Chrysler 300S Alloy Edition. Additionally, the vehicle is integrated with LED tail lamps that carry a Gloss Black accent and a body color reat fascia accent trim.

The new Chrysler 300S will be offered in five exterior finishes: Black Forest Green Pearl Coat, Bright White Clear Coat, Gloss Black Clear Coat, Granite Crystal Metallic Cleat Coat, and Redline Tri-Coat Pearl. The production team added unique design elements and materials to the interior.

The sport-contoured heated front seats, passenger sears, steering wheel, armrests, and instrumental cluster bezel are made of the exclusive Black Nappa leather with Caramel accent stitching. Moreover, the center stack, door panel elements, gauge cluster, instrumental panel, and steering wheel are exclusively made of Titanium paired with Piano Black.

Completing the unique interior is a new instrument panel clock executing watch-like precision. It has a dark-colored analog and a Piano Black-colored bezel surround that emphasize the industrial look of the Chrysler 300S Alloy Edition.

Performance-Tuned Suspension, 363-hp HEMI V-8 Engine and Aerodynamic Styling For more and better rear-wheel-drive handling ability, the Chrysler 300S Alloy Edition is incorporated with a new performance-tuned suspension that improves spring rates, performance-tuned steering and bushings, bigger sway bars, and Goodyear Eagle F1 three-season tires.

For better performance and delivery than the standard 300-hp 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine paired to the TorqueFlite eight-speed transmission with Sport mode and paddle shifters, the developers improved the new Chrysler 300S with a 363-hp 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine that comes with four-cylinder mode Fuel Saver Technology and sculpted side sills and deck lid spoiler.
