This repositioning offers a more affordable line-up that aligns with Pacifica (Touring, Touring L, S, Limited and C). The S Model Alloy appearance packages are now easy order options. The top model is now the 300 C and it comes standard with 5.7L Hemi V8 and 17MY C Platinum features

    What does the Sport Appearance Package for the Touring consist of? Kind of an S-model appearance without the tuning and suspension upgrades?

    I sure am glad to see the 300 C nameplate once again, only on a Hemi-powered car. Also looking forward to seeing the green color. I like a nice dark green and it goes in and out of style every few years, so maybe it's coming back again.

    Wish I could afford a new Mopar. 300s are nice, but way beyond my budget.

    I hope it's a deep green. Combine the color with a black grill and accents with a mocha interior... ahhhhh...

    Great move, I bet it will help make up for some 200 sales. Any idea of new starting price?

    I think it is the same as F8 Green used on Charger and Challenger.

    Agreed with the F-8 green on 300, that colour will really stand out on the Challenger body style not so sure on Charger & 300. Hope it will be brilliant on both but will have to wait and see it. Would like to see a mint green on the 300 with a light colour (white) interior. MOPAR Always!

    So.... If the 300C has a standard 5.7 V8 does this mean that you will not be able to get the luxury features (quilted leather, open pore wood, etc.) with AWD? Or (I hope, I hope) are they bringing back the AWD/V8 combo <-------This is what I have been waiting for! Or will there be an engine downgrade: If you want AWD with the 300C the standard V8 is replaced by the V6?

    It's a bit disappointing to see the 20" wheels becoming standard on more trims. I got the 18" wheels on my 2015 Charger SXT Plus, but if I bought my car now, it would have to come with 20" wheels.

    Glad to see they're at least realizing the error in "de-valuing" the C badge. Wish they'd really look at differentiating from the Charger by making the 300 AWD exclusively across the pantheon of engine options.

    No all the luxury stuff that was in the previous 300 C Platinum are still in the 300 C

    No AWD on the C.

    This makes me sad and once again removes the 300 from my consideration list. (Don't get me wrong - I love the 300. I've had a 2005, 2009, and currently a 2012.) I want to trade my 2012C for a new one (I've held on to this one longer than I wanted to) but I don't want the V6 and live in an area where winters are snowy. Can I be the only 300C buyer who likes the power/torque/driveability characteristics of the 5.7 and wants AWD?
