New Luxurious Trim Joins Chrysler 300 Lineup

2012 chrysler 300 luxury series
The refreshed-for-2011 Chrysler 300 sedan earned major points for its much-improved interior. For 2012, Chrysler is adding even more premium materials and upping the fancy factor of its flagship sedan.

Chrysler is adding a new top-line trim level to the 300, called the Luxury Series. It joins the Limited, 300C, S series and high-performance SRT8. It features a leather-wrapped steering wheel and instrument panel, Nappa leather seats and armrests, 12-way power-adjustable driver and passenger seats, die-cast paddle shifters and a cabin accented with hand-sanded matte wood trim. Exterior upgrades include platinum chrome mirror caps and door handles and a platinum chrome mesh grille. Rear-wheel-drive versions ride on 20-inch painted aluminum wheels; all-wheel-drive models use 19s.

Luxury Series models are available with the 300’s 292-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6 engine and 8-speed automatic transmission or the 300C’s 363-hp, 5.7-liter V-8 engine and 5-speed automatic.

Prices (excluding an $825 destination fee) are below:

Chrysler 300 Luxury Series (rear-wheel drive): $39,320
Chrysler 300 Luxury Series (all-wheel drive): $41,670
Chrysler 300C Luxury Series (rear-wheel drive): $42,070
Chrysler 300C Luxury Series (all-wheel drive): $44,420

The 2012 Chrysler 300 Luxury Series goes on sale early next year.

I always thought Chrysler should go full luxury and stop bumbling around with foolishness like the PT Cruiser, Pacifica, etc. I know it's a seller, but I think they should drop the T&C as well and leave it to Dodge.
