Video: the 2012 Chrysler 300C now available in three new models


Once upon a time if you wanted a big traditional American Chrysler family sedan you only really had one choice…the Chrysler 300C. But that was so 2011.

Now that it is almost May of 2011 you can get your big American Chrysler family sedan in three new flavors. At the New York Auto show Chrysler rolled out the 300S, SRT8, and the 300C Executive models.

All three are, at least according to Chrysler, are for three different types of people.

Let’s start with the new Chrysler 300C Executive model. Detroit Lions Defensive back Ndamukong Suh helped intro the car via a new commercial Chrysler showed at the New York Auto Show. We could tell you all about the car and the commercial but why not just watch the debut of the car (and the other two new models) yourself in the video below.

The new Chrysler 300S kicks it West Coast Style, or at least that’s what Dr Dre says in the second new commercial that Chrysler presented for the model with perhaps the best stereo….after all the cars sound system was personally tuned by Dr. Dre.

And of course Chrysler also rolled out the new 300 STR8 which is tailored for the customer who wants a big helping of performance with their luxury…that’s according to Chrysler.

The new flagship 300 SRT8 now packs a bigger 6.4-liter HEMI V8 that gets a estimated 465-horsepower and 465 lb.-ft. of torque, which is up 40 horsepower and 45 lb.-ft. over the 6.1-liter in the previous model.

Chrysler says that the new bigger HEMI is good for 0-60 times in the high 4 seconds range and a quarter mile time in the high 12 second range.
