With daring styling from the 300C Sedan, the Chrysler 300C Touring pushes the envelope further with its strong sculptural appearance, premium interior appointments, unmatched style, performance, ride and handling.

The 300C Touring is designed for more than just for curb-appeal. The uniquely sloped roof and daylight openings provide a spacious interior cabin with 25 percent more cargo room than Chrysler 300C sedan. An innovative inverted “L” liftgate features hinges set back over the load area for nearly-vertically lift, avoiding the operator to step back from the vehicle. This unique liftgate architecture also allows for enhanced access to the rear cargo area.

The new Walter P. Chrysler Signature Series adds even more luxury appointments and technology to the bold Chrysler 300C Touring range. Unique interior appointments include: premium Nappa leather seats for front and rear passengers, Blackwood interior trim, SRT-design steering wheel, bright metallic accents, aluminum door sill plates, and eight-speaker Boston Acoustics 5.1 surround sound with subwoofer and Digital Signal Processor (DSP) all of which contribute to create an elegant, comforting and harmonious environment. Outside, unique 18-inch aluminum wheels, sunroof and “Signature Series” badge complete the upscale transformation.

For great all-weather driving capability, Chrysler 300C Touring continues to offer an advanced all-wheel-drive system. Chrysler 300C Touring all-wheel-drive models feature an active transfer case and front-axle disconnect. No other major manufacturer offers these two independent technologies together. The innovative system seamlessly transitions between rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive with no driver intervention. When all-wheel drive is not required, the system automatically disconnects the front axle to maximize fuel economy, while still providing the outstanding performance and handling inherent in rear-wheel drive.

The Chrysler 300C Touring offers performance and refinement in all of its four available engines. A highly-refined Common-rail Diesel (CRD) engine offers maximum efficiency and capability. The innovative 3.0-litre V-6 CRD engine with Variable-geometry Turbo (VGT) and Piezo injectors deliver a smooth, responsive ride with instant torque on-demand. And for true American sedan performance, 300C customers can choose the legendary 5.7-liter HEMI®
V-8 engine with fuel-saving Multi-displacement System (MDS) technology.

An expressive SRT Design package is available for the Chrysler 300C Touring, delivering the most popular styling elements of the 300C Touring SRT8 model, with an efficient 3.0-liter CRD engine. The package includes burnished-aluminum 20-inch wheels, Goodyear P245/45R20 all-season performance tires, unique exhaust system with performance muffler, performance-styled front bucket seats with raised bolsters, SRT Design steering wheel, unique interior door trim and body-color exterior door handles and mirrors.

Chrysler 300C Touring also offers passenger-friendly technologies to provide information, communication and convenience. Innovative technologies offered on Chrysler 300C Touring include: Uconnect™ Navigation with voice commands and real-time traffic, Uconnect Multimedia with touch-screen, iPod® Control, hands-free Uconnect Phone, Keyless Entry/Keyless Go, Adaptive-cruise Control (ACC), rain-sensing wipers and Parksense®
rear-park assist system.
