2005 Chrysler 300
Best Overall Value - Large

Signalling a renaissance at Chrysler, the striking, full-size 300 has been turning heads since its mid-2004 launch. Following the strategy blueprinted with the Crossfire, the 300 was developed using significant chassis engineering and driveline and vehicle stability componentry from the Mercedes-Benz E-Class sedan. The result is the new LX platform, shared with the Dodge Magnum and Charger. Its long, 120-inch wheelbase enables a massive interior, and its chassis pedigree delivers enticing road manners. Four powertrains are offered: 2.7-liter/190-horse V-6, 3.5-liter/250-horse V-6, 5.7-liter/340-horse V-8, and 6.1-liter/425-horse V-8. A desirable package with the 3.5L, the 300 shines brightest with the Hemi V-8. A new Multi-Displacement System (MDS) deactivates cylinders in the Hemi engine when they're not needed, enhancing fuel economy from this thrilling powerplant. The five-place interior boasts 106.6 cubic feet of total space, providing each passenger with generous leg, head, and shoulder room. Even the base model packs standard air conditioning, keyless entry, tilt/telescope steering wheel, eight-way driver's seat, CD-fitted stereo, and power amenities. The options list features such niceties as dual-zone auto climate control, MP3-playback, Bluetooth connectivity, Bose Acoustics stereo, Sirius satellite radio, navigation system, and tortoise-shell trim. An instant classic, the 300 delivers more styling, performance, and value than anything else in its class.
