With an air of distinction and decidedly luxurious approach
to driving, the sophisticated Chrysler 300M arrives for
2002 with a series of key changes that improves the overall
impressive package. The most notable improvements fall in
the performance and handling category.
This year, the Chrysler 300M Sedan puts all its
eggs in one basket, and with the myriad of upgrades you
really don't need to look anywhere else. Everything you
want is here - and all at a reasonable price. Several packages
are offered to broaden the spectrum of generous features
The gracious and roomy interior of the 300M Sedan
Special highlights silver tone laminates on the instrument
panel and doors. The colors are sporty but very contemporary
to suit anyone's tastes.
All 300M Sedan models feature luxurious standards such
as genuine leather-trimmed seats, heated 8-way power adjustable
front seats with memory feature on the driver's side, and
AM/FM stereo with CD player. Three choices of leather upholstery
are available - sandstone, taupe, and dark slate gray.
Options include a genuine walnut wood trim dash, partial
wood steering wheel, and an overhead console-mounted electronic
vehicle information center.
New for 2002 are ground effect skirts, a one-inch
drop in ride, and eighteen-inch special wheels on the 300M
Special. Heated dual power outside mirrors is standard on
all 300M's, and auto-dimming driver-side mirror and auto-adjusting
outside mirrors are standard fare in the luxury group.
The Chrysler 300M Special packs a high-output
3.5-litre, SOHC, V6 engine that cranks out 255 horsepower
and 255 lbs-ft of torque. Standard 300M models produce 250
horsepower and 250 lbs-ft of torque. All models are classified
as low emissions vehicles.
The 300M Special also boasts twin exhaust pipes and a sport-tuned
suspension. All models feature the AutoStick transaxle,
which combines the convenience of automatic transmission
with the control of a manual transmission. The handling
is pretty slick and precise, taking corners quietly but
sharply. Acceleration is tremendous, with barely audible
noise and vibration in the comfortable cabin.
