There will only be 2,000 units of the 2023 Chrysler 300C offered in the U.S., with another 200 available in Canada. However, the 6.4L Hemi engine makes the final version of America’s big, bold sedan even bigger and bolder. Capable of sending the car from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.3 seconds. It can also cover a quarter-mile in 12.4 seconds and reach a top speed of 160 mph. In addition, the sedan features red four-piston Brembo brakes, a 3.09 limited-slip differential, active damping suspension, and black, rounded exhaust tips that accent an active exhaust system that delivers a muscular, throaty sound.

In addition, the exterior carries black chrome accents on the grille and lower fascia, plus black headlamp and taillamp bezels.
