Looking to buy a 2013

Hey folks. I've been looking into the 300's for a while and finally did a test drive. It was really tough not to drive off with it. After coming from big SUVs for the last 12 years, I'm looking for something more comfy for really long 10+ hour trips.

With the exception of last year we can sometimes get some pretty bad snow here, wondering how a new AWD version would handle? Anyone have any experience with snow in a 2012?

I'm looking to get a basic 300, not a S or C or anything else. Making it AWD and adding the GPS will top out my budget. I just saw they released a glacier edition, but every dealership around me is loading them up over $40k and it looks to be mostly cosmetic stuff anyway. DOes anyone know if they plan to make any kind of station wagon version?

The "station wagon version" was the Dodge Magnum and they made those in AWD. They are no longer produced.

I know several owners in very snowy areas that say putting on some winter traction tires on their AWD 300 served them well. If you need winter traction and a sedan, the AWD 300 is a great choice!

Oh .. could have sworn I saw a 300 wagon before, guess it was a magnum. I think I'm going to be stuck with whatever all weather tires I get with the car though, at first anyway. I live in a small condo, no place really that I can store the old tires while I have winter ones on. I mostly just want a comfy ride, that can also hold it's own on the 5 or 6 days a year when there's snow

The Blizzak is a great tire to consider and you can get a stock size set for your car.

The AWD Chrysler 300 version is seamless to the driver and does very well in moderate snow.

The Chrysler version wagon was for European / Export models of the Dodge Magnum. It was a Magnum with a Chrysler 300 badge. Currently there are no wagon versions built any longer.

I have a 2012 SRT 300 and with snow tires on 18's have been impressed with winter driving. AWD would be even better.

Tires are a must on RWD.

I got a 2013 300s fully loaded we might be able to make a deal on...it's got some nice upgrades and it would be cheaper than the Glacier edition - just thinking out loud

My 06 C was just coming to the end of it's extended warranty, so started looking last week. Pretty much in the time I decided to go with the Lux C, and the time I contacted the dealer, they discountinued the model and rolled it into the Varvados Luxury model. I ordered the VarLux on 12/28, should take 4 to six weeks.

(There is a Varvatos Limited that is at least 4K more than the Lux.)

Just bought a 2013 300s awd full loaded a few days ago, I actually went down to test drive it while it was snowing and there was already a few inches on the ground. Coming from a 08 Dodge Ram with 4X4 I can tell you the 300 AWD system is far superior to the RAM.

I've now been driving it in snow and ice and I'm still really really impressed. Granted on ice it doesn't really matter what you have your going for a ride if you drive like a knucklehead.
