Based on the number of technology and entertainment features available onboard, the 2009 Chrysler 300 has definite appeal for those who spend a lot of time in the car.
The 2009 Chrysler 300 is available in a wide array of trim levels, and between those trims and the options list, there is something for the shopper in just about every price range. TheCarConnection.com has discovered that while the Chrysler 300 can be understandably feature-light, other trims offer a long list of standard features. Edmunds reviewers find that the 2009 Chrysler 300 LX "comes standard with 17-inch alloy wheels, air-conditioning, cruise control, full power accessories...eight-way power driver seat" and a "four-speaker stereo with CD/MP3 player and auxiliary audio jack."
Stepping up to the Chrysler 300 Touring, ConsumerGuide reports that the standard features expand to include "dual-zone automatic climate controls" and "heated power mirrors," along with "satellite radio." The Limited trim is even more deluxe, notes Edmunds, which says that it includes a "trip computer, steering wheel audio controls and a six-speaker touchscreen-operated stereo with six-CD changer and 30GB hard drive for digital music storage." The major standard features available on the Chrysler 300C and 300 SRT8 models include a "Boston Acoustics eight-speaker sound system" and "power sun roof," according to Kelley Blue Book.
Moving to the optional features list, which is quite extensive, reveals enough features to drive the price of a fully loaded Chrysler 300 SRT8 to nearly the $50,000 mark. According to reviewers at Edmunds, "many of the 2008 Chrysler 300 upper trim levels' upgraded features are available as options on the lower trims. Other major options, typically grouped in packages with availability depending on the trim level, include hard-drive-based and surround-sound audio systems, a navigation system, a rear-seat DVD entertainment system with Sirius TV, adaptive cruise control, Bluetooth and an iPod interface." For those who won't be driving themselves much, Cars.com reports that a long-wheelbase edition includes "writing tables, footrests, illuminated vanity mirrors, adjustable reading lights and 12-volt power plugs for charging mobile electronic devices" from the backseat.
