2013 Chrysler 300 Fuel Economy

Fuel Economy

Thanks to the eight-speed automatic transmission and V-6 that's essentially the base powertrain for retail models of the 2013 Chrysler 300, this is a surprisingly fuel-efficient sedan, with EPA numbers of 19 mpg city, 31 highway in rear-wheel-drive form.

All-wheel drive drops ratings to 18/27 mpg, although Chrysler boasts that these are best-in-class models. 300C HEMI V-8 models earn highway numbers of up to 25 mpg. Although due to so-called Fuel Saver Technology (cylinder deactivation), you may see even better, as we have, if you can use some self control and keep your right foot light.

V-6 versions of the 2013 Chrysler 300 are quite efficient compared to large luxury sedans, but Hemi V-8-powered versions are guzzlers.

EPA ratings for the SRT8, with a city rating of just 14 mpg, seem right on the mark, if even a bit optimistic, based on what we've seen. This is a performance model best enjoyed by those who know exactly what they're getting--a blast-from-the-past, large-displacement V-8 engine with a potentially budget-busting thirst.
