The Chrysler 300C gets a HEMI V-8 with a displacement of 5.7 liters. This powerplant is rated 363 horses and is also available for 300S as an option. This trim can go from 0 to 60 miles an hour in less than 6 seconds. The non-SRT8 versions come as all-wheel drive models.
The top of the line Chrysler 300 SRT8 will make any car enthusiast fall in love with the ride. It has a 6.4L HEMI V-8 that transfers all its 470 horsepower to the rear wheels.

The handling of this version is also the best of the lineup.
