In the midst of all the changes going on with Dodge, Jeep and Ram, it feels like Chrysler has been pushed by the wayside. But this storied brand is primed to reimagine itself as well, but not before a finale of sorts. And we have suspicion that it’s going to come in the form of one of the most powerful Chrysler products to ever happen.
A tease on Chrysler’s official website titled “ultimate performance” shares that on September 13th 6:00 P.M. EST they will reveal the “most powerful and luxurious special edition vehicles in Chrysler history.” This is on the eve of the 2022 Detroit Auto Show media day, where Ford will reveal the S650 Mustang.
While the Chrysler Airflow concept shows a promising future, right now the brand’s stable is at its thinnest with just the Pacifica van and the long-standing 300 sedan. A Hellcat-powered Pacifica seems unlikely from the factory, for obvious reasons, so it has to be a souped up Chrysler 300. The teased event will also share how you can reserve one.
Further evidence to support the theory of a possible supercharged Chrysler 300 model comes in the form of social media. The Chrysler Twitter page has recently changed their cover photo with a simple picture of their emblem and the phrase “we’re bringing the power into 2023.” The Twitter page has also solicited for Chrysler 300 owners to share their pictures, presumably to drum up excitement. In addition to all of this Chrysler’s Twitter handle also posted a picture of an enthusiast 300 build featuring Dodge Hellcat parts.
Whatever these special editions are going to be, we do know that they will be a limited production run and that vehicle availability will begin in the spring of 2023. Nothing has been shared on pricing for this new upcoming special edition but we know the 300 lineup ranges from $33,740 for the base touring model all the way up to $45,350 for the 300 S V8 model.
