Chrysler says goodbye to 300 sedan after revealing limited edition model

Chrysler has announced the end of its once-popular 300 sedan. Tuesday, at the Detroit Auto Show, the company unveiled a limited-edition performance version of the vehicle which will be available in minimal numbers for 2023, the last year of the vehicle’s production.

The 2023 Chrysler 300C will be a high-powered, torqued-up version of the original model, featuring a 6.4-liter V-8 Hemi engine with 485 horsepower and 475 foot-pounds of torque. It will likely have a top speed of 160 mph and reach 0-60 mph in around 4.3 seconds.

Chrysler said it would produce just 2,000 300Cs for the United States and another 200 for Canada, both with a starting price of $55,000. Interested buyers can reserve one of the vehicles at

The Chrysler 300 was first introduced in 1955 and was successfully reintroduced in 2005. Its unique appearance, sleek styling, and recognizable checkered grill earned it the nickname “mini-Bentley.”

At first, the 300 sold more than 100,000 units annually. However, sales have declined drastically; only 17,000 units were sold for the past two years combined. The 300C model was last offered in 2020.

The car is produced in Ontario, Canada, in the same location as the Dodge Charger and Challenger. Both vehicles are ending production next year and are available in special-edition performance versions. Dodge announced they will be replaced with an all-electric performance vehicle, which is still in concept format.

Chrysler, however, has not specified what, if anything, will replace the 300 sedan. However, the electric Chrysler Airflow, which was unveiled as a concept at the CES Consumer Technology show earlier this year, is a possibility. The company has said it will release its first battery-powered electric vehicle in 2025 and expects an all-electric lineup by 2028.
