For a large luxury sedan, the V-6 versions of the 2014 Chrysler 300 are reasonably fuel-efficient. Not so for the Hemi V-8 models, though.

Chrysler is aiming for a 30-mpg highway rating with the new transmission, which is a ZF design (the best the Pentastar manages with the old five-speed is 27 mpg).

The Chrysler 300 can be surprisingly efficient, thanks to its eight-speed automatic transmission and 3.6-liter V-6. The EPA rates rear-wheel-drive models at 19 mpg city, 31 mpg highway. You lose a bit with all-wheel drive, which earns a rating of 18/27 mpg, respectively.

EPA ratings for the SRT, 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.

Chrysler 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.

 

Conclusion

For a large luxury sedan, the V-6 versions of the 2014 Chrysler 300 are reasonably fuel-efficient. Not so for the Hemi V-8 models, though.

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.
