2010 Chrysler 300C SRT8 Review


Power Hungry?

In short: An American muscle sedan.

A large and stylish performance car, this vehicle gives drivers a solid and quiet ride while packing the ability to accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 4.9 seconds. While the 300C may not look too sporty, this powerful sedan is really a wolf in sheep's clothing, with its big and bold 6.1-liter, 425-horsepower V8 engine waiting to be unleashed. Striking a perfect balance between comfort and performance, this American-made sedan is an excellent option for family men (and moms!) who like to have a little fun while the kids are at school.
