November 17, 2017 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - The Chrysler 300 is the winner of the Large Car segment in Edmunds’ Most Wanted awards. This recognition honors the most in-demand vehicles based on sales, days-to-turn and shopper interest data on Edmunds.  
 
“Bold and aggressive, the Chrysler 300 stands out in a class of largely look-alike sedans, and its originality makes it one of the most popular large cars on the market,” said Jessica Caldwell, executive director of industry analysis, Edmunds.
 
The 2018 Edmunds Most Wanted Award winner for each of the 17 segments was determined by analyzing data from the first nine months of 2017 for all models on sale during that period. For each segment, Edmunds identified which models had the highest levels of two types of shopper consideration based on Edmunds site activity, the highest sales and the lowest average days-to-turn. The rankings for each of these data sets were weighted equally to determine the winners in each segment.

Offering class-exclusive innovations and advanced technology at the driver’s fingertips, the 300 lineup includes the Uconnect 4 system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, improved features and an award-winning interface.

Available on the Touring, Touring L, 300S and Limited is the segment’s most advanced all-wheel-drive (AWD) system, which seamlessly engages at any speed to enable optimal traction and control based on conditions, driving style and road surface.
