The Car Connection's Take

8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
Capable and confident, the 2016 Chrysler 300 is decidedly American large family sedan with plenty of room, lots of luxury, and available V-8 power. With rear-wheel drive and available V-8 power, the 2016 Dodge Charger is a family sedan with a muscle-car heartbeat.
