2011 New York Auto Show: 2012 Chrysler 300C Executive Series

Article by Christian Andrei, on April 21, 2011

The 2012 Chrysler 300C Executive Series is designed to be the most luxurious flagship sedan ever to be created by Chrysler. It blends ultra-premium leather, formerly limited to the few most deluxe Italian luxury cars, with world-class handling and refinement, cutting-edge connectivity and safety features as well as the popular 5.7-liter 363 hp HEMI V-8 engine incorporated with Fuel Saver Technology.

According to Francois, for Chrysler, the all-new 300C was not only about making a vehicle great for a segment but also about tailoring it to fit an individual, whether it’s intended for an entrepreneur, outperformer or trendsetter. The Chrysler 300C Executive Series creates an impression with its appointments as well as contrasts. It comes with 2-tone extra-soft Nappa leather seats, hand-stitched Italian leather dashboard, hand-sanded wood accents, distinctly polished 20-inch wheels and cutting edge Uconnect Touch, giving passengers a touch of genuine old-school craftsmanship together with state-of-the-art technology.

The Chrysler 300C Executive Series boasts of exclusive features in the interior, including Black Poltrona Frau "Foligno" or Mochachino leather-wrapped instrument panel, upper front- and rear-door panels, center console side panels and cluster brow.

The armrests of the door and center console, as well as the bolster, are covered in premium Nappa leather. The black or 2-tone Mochachino seats are fully wrapped in supple Nappa leather and have a 12-way adjustable power seats for the driver and front passengers (plus 4-way power lumbar) along with 2-mode ventilation and heated seats for front and rear passengers. Real wood trim in specially chosen Pore Gray or Natural Pore Mocha has a low-gloss finish to enhance the wood’s natural beauty.

When it comes to the exterior, the chromed door handle accents, mirror and fascia are replaced with a distinct platinum chrome finish to look more upscale. Completing the exceptional exterior is the platinum-chrome finished grille with platinum-chrome sculpted grille blades surrounding it to give a truly unique look (late availability).

Other premium interior facilities featured in the 300C Executive Series mode are the SIRIUS Traffic & SIRIUS Travel Link, cutting-edge Uconnect Touch 8.4N plus Garmin navigation, LED-illuminated 160-mph instrument cluster plus driver-selectable color EVIC, power-adjustable pedals plus memory, telescoping steering column and power tilt with memory, leather-wrapped and heated steering wheel, power backlight sunshade, satin chrome sills on lower door with "Chrysler" logo, quality 18-ounce berber floor mats with nubuck trimming, auto-tilt and auto-dimming in Reverse, HomeLink universal transceiver plus chromed power-folding exterior mirrors including memory, first-class carpeted trunk mat, interior door handles with LED illumination plus map pockets in front and rear and dim lit foot well lighting.

Chrysler 300C Executive Series models that come in rear-wheel-drive or with the advanced AWD system will be available at Chrysler dealers in the fall of 2011.
