300's rear-wheel-drive (RWD) system provides a whole new driving experience:
  • A near-50/50 front-to-rear weight distribution, 120-inch wheelbase and wider track provide greater stability and a more balanced ride
  • Weight transfer to the rear wheels on acceleration provide better balance and traction
  • New short- and long-arm (SLA) front suspension and five-link rear suspension helps keep tire tread in full contact with the road for maximum traction
  • Available features like the electronic stability program* (ESP), antilock brake system (ABS) with brake assist, and all-speed traction control combine to provide greater command of every situation
The all-wheel drive (AWD) system available on 300C, Limited, and Touring offers maximum driver control:
  • Chrysler 300C AWD with the HEMI® V8 engine has the lowest Annual Fuel Cost of any V8-powered AWD Vehicle†
  • Provides better acceleration, especially when traction is limited
  • Supplies power to both axles at all times-62 percent of the engine torque to the rear wheels and 38 percent to the front-giving the rear-wheel-drive feel essential for performance sedans
  • A planetary center differential allows the axles to rotate at different speeds, necessary for smooth cornering

* Always drive carefully, consistent with conditions. Always wear your seat belt and obey traffic laws.
† Based on the 2006 EPA Fuel Economy Guide Annual Fuel Cost estimates. Excludes other DaimlerChrysler vehicles.
