The 2015 Chrysler 300 has just received a facelift and everybody will be able to see it at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show. Among the changes, the 2015 Chrysler 300 Facelift arrives with a new front fascia that consists in a new mesh grille featuring the Chrysler winged logo, redesigned daytime running lights and headlamps.
At the rear, the vehicle featured new LED taillamps, but the overall design remains the same. At the interior, designers upgraded both the center stack and instrument panel and added a 7-inch information screen in the instrument cluster. The most interesting addition is the new rotary shifter that replaces the T-handled shifter.
The steering wheel was also updated and Chrysler designers added new color combinations. Engines remain unchanged, which means that we will find the well-known 3.6-liter V6 that developed 300 hp and the 5.7-liter HEMI V8 with 363 hp. For the 2015MY, the HEMI V8 is offered as standard with an eight-speed automatic transmission, which replaces the previous five-speed transmission.
According to the manufacturer, the new 8-speed transmission adds a 1 mpg improvement in both city and highway mileage. Moreover, the electric power steering replaces the hydraulic system and the driver will be able to select one of the three steering control setups: comfort, normal and sport.
Four versions of the 2015MY will be available: Limited, S, C and Platinum. As you may know already, the SRT version of the Chrysler 300 has been axed in the United States, but the company will continue to offer it in right-hand-drive countries.
