ROCKY FACE, Ga. — Running over a narrow strip of pavement warped by Blue Ridge ripples in Georgia, Chrysler's agile flagship sedan wiggles around a dicey downhill curve with the sure-footed manners of an internationally flavored touring car.

Its sleek body maintains a flat stance around each subsequent turn despite the lateral forces of motion at work. Its taut independent-strut suspension stifles larger bumps and dips, while its steering translates those same nuances in the road into clear signals of the road ahead.

A powerful new engine provides the pulse for this expressive machine. Press the pedal, and it leaps to action through the next straightaway down the valley with a velvety purr that most recent Chryslers haven't approached.

Clearly, a drive in Chrysler's 300M reveals the car has an attitude to match its aggressive streamlined silhouette. Remember the name — it's destined to become an icon of the former Chrysler, an embodiment of advanced automotive design and powerful mechanical aptitude. And it's absolutely beautiful, a treat to the eye.

 

A daring design

The daring shape of the 300M begins at its abbreviated prow, capped by articulated quad headlamps and a bulging low hood. A massive canted windshield follows: The glass initiates a smooth arched roof that extends over sensuously shaped doors and blends C-pillars in graceful descents to a curt high tail.

The 300M looks clean and pure in the absence of superfluous elements. Its sophisticated design theme continues inside to a luxury suite for five with plush leather seats and elegant graphics for the analog instruments.

The 300M puts a slinky uptown spin on the Concorde/Intrepid/LHS theme.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
