Expert Quotes:

Whistler didn’t refresh his painting of his mom four years after completing it. Nor did he completely redo it every seven years for the rest of his life.
Car and Driver

The 300’s chromed taillights might be derivative … of a Rolls-Royce Ghost or a Bentley Mulsanne. I see this being a problem like Verizon sees a bajillion new iPhone users as problematic.

The cabin is elegant and well-proportioned...

Still looks a tad too much like its predecessor.
Popular Mechanics

The new look is still more Armani than Abercrombie.

Aesthetically, the 300 sedans have always found a unique blend traditional, ornate and modern, and the 2014 Chrysler 300 remains a hulking mass of sedan swagger.

Overall, the look is a bit less showy, following 2012's redesign that smoothed out some of the boxy lines and those oversized shoulders. With that in mind, we also think the 19-inch wheels look better here; the 20's are just a little too much overkill for us.

Vertical-tube lamps in back add a more expensive look--almost Cadillac-like. The cartoonish grille and faux-Bentley look are gone, with brash details toned down. Smaller headlights wear LED eyeliner, while the fenders are more rectilinear, especially on the rear where they've picked up some of the intricate stamped-in details seen on the current Ford Taurus, Buick LaCrosse, even the most recent E-Class.

Inside, the look became smoother and richer, with regrouped controls and an LCD touchscreen taking up prime real estate at the middle of the dash; there's also a bit more metallic trim to provide framing, while a carbon-fiber look or naturally finished wood for trims sets a modern, elegant tone.




The 2014 Chrysler 300 is svelte, swaggering, and uniquely American.

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.
