Chrysler Celebrates 90 Years with Special Edition Models

90th Anniversary Models - ChryslerDealerNY - Bayside Chrysler Jeep Dodge

Back in 1925, Walter. P Chrysler started up a brand name that would continue to this day, surviving all kinds of ups and downs with the industry.  As a milestone to honor the 90 years Chrysler is releasing limited edition 90th anniversary models of their 2016 models.

“Ninety years ago, Walter P. Chrysler laid the foundation for a philosophy that still works today – craftsmanship, beautiful design, innovation and technology, all at an affordable price,” Al Gardner, President and CEO of Chrysler brand, said.  “Those traits still resonate today in both the products – the Chrysler 200 mid-size sedan, 300 full-size sedan and Town and Country minivan – and with consumers.  Chrysler brand sales are up almost 20 percent this year, which is a great foundation for the brand heading into the next 90 years.”

First up is the Chrysler 200.  The 90th Anniversary Edition has the standard features in the Limited model with an 8.4 inch Touchscreen with Uconnect and unique Chrysler Anniversary screen logo, power sunroof, and a host of other features.  The main piece of equipment that marks the 90th Anniversary is in the front floor mats that come with an anniversary logo.

Next, the Chrysler 300’s 90th Anniversary Package includes a dual-pane sunroof – the segment’s largest – and a HomeLink universal transceiver.  The touchscreen also has a unique screen logo on the startup splash screen as well as premium floor mats that come with an anniversary logo.

The model is based on the 300 limited and comes with all the standard features.  This means the 300 90th Anniversary Edition comes with the 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine as well as available AWD.

Lastly, the Chrysler Town & Country gets an Anniversary Edition.  The base model is the Touring-L models.  The package adds a power sunroof, bright door handles, first and second rows are heated as well as the steering wheel.  Like the other vehicles, it too includes a special 90th Anniversary logo on the floor mats and on the splash screen.

2015 Chrysler 300 is Perfect for Summer Road Trips

2015 Chrysler 300 is Perfect for Summer Road Trips

Summer is here and one of the greatest things about that time is that for many it marks the time when many are getting ready to head out on vacation.  In anticipation of that, Kelly Blue Book put together a list of the ‘Road Trip Cars of 2015.’

Number 5 on the list happened to be the 2015 Chrysler 300.  Their reasoning for putting a four door sedan on this is that it gets the road tripping done in a way that is “…in a distinctly American way.”  The highlight that KBB focuses on is the V8 engine.  With the power and the torque that it provides, it makes driving on any highway a breeze.  On a closing note, the benefit of it looking like a cop car could come in handy when dealing with traffic.

What KBB doesn’t go into is the comfort.  The 2015 Chrysler 300 is listed on Ward’s 10 Best Interiors.  The seating is made of quality craftsmanship and leather-trim is standard on all models.  Other features that help any road tripper are blind spot monitoring and rear cross path detection.

The Chrysler 300 Gets a Sparkling One-of-a-Kind Custom

Chrysler-300-Bling China-1

Some people just want to make sure their ride is recognizable on the street or to be able to pick it out instantly in a parking lot.  For one Chrysler 300 the idea of one-of-a-kind just went a very long way.

A Chrysler 300 over in China got itself one hell of a decal.  The specialized 300 is covered front to back in shiny stones made out of plastic to make it look like a sparkling sedan.  Carscoop covered the whole of the custom work to make this 300 really stick out.

“(the 300) comes fitted with huge 21-inch allow wheels, also decorated in the same material, suicide-style rear doors, Lamborghini-style front scissor-doors, and a body kit complete with 150mm wide side sills.”

If you thought the fascinating work ended there, then wait until you see inside.  The interior continue the outside visual aesthetic with white leather on everything, even the floor mats.  Whoever wants this 300 certainly wants to have a different kind of luxury.

As to how long something like this comes together, it takes somewhere around 4 months.  For just the wheels, it took a single person three days to complete.  To see more pics, follow the link to the Carscoop article.
