Chrysler 300 Wins Big with Edmunds Most Want Car Awards

Edmunds’ Most Wanted awards have honored the Chrysler 300 as the winner of its Large Car segment. 

The 2018 Edmunds Most Wanted Awards is given for 17 different segments.  The way the winner is chosen is by analyzing the data from the first nine months of 2017 for all models on sale during that period.  From there Edmunds checked their site activity to see the vehicles in the different segments and their highest sales and the lowest average days-to-turn.  Then rankings for each were then weighed to figure out the winner of each category.

“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, the executive director of industry analysis at Edmunds.

The 2018 Chrysler 300 3.60-liter V-6 models are available with the segment’s most technologically advanced all-wheel-drive system.  It also features class-exclusive innovations with the Uconnect 4 system. 

Is There a Chrysler 300 SRT Hellcat in the Works?

At this point the question really should be which cars is Fiat-Chrysler not trying to put the Hellcat engine in? 

Recent spy photos have come to light showing a possible Chrysler 300 SRT.  The photos showcase a 300 that features similar tires that were on the early Demon prototypes and seem to show a Chrysler 300 that is being made to handle quite some power. Does this mean that the 300 is the next vehicle to get a Hellcat engine? 

It’s doubtful that the 300 is being groomed for such a future.  As Autoblog notes, the 300 SRT was discontinued in the United States in 2015.  However, it is still being sold in the Middle East and in Australia.  That could mean that Chrysler is gearing up an international treat to get more 300 SRTs selling in other regions of the world. 

Autoblog continues that Dodge is not a brand on sale in Australia.  That could make a Hellcat 300 an option for the Aussies.  No clue on if this is something that would stand even a remote chance in the US, but I’m sure importers that would want to get their hands on it would find a way.  Until then, maybe the 300 is getting a Hellcat engine.
