It has been nine years since the second generation of Chrysler 300 was firstly introduced to the market in 2011. The current model does still exist and has its own loyal fans, those who have had a soft spot for a luxurious sedan with classic appearance. There is a rumor, however, that Chrysler will discontinue the 300 for 2021. Does it mean than the Chrysler 300 is about to demise? It can be bad news for conservative buyers who are fond of that old American luxury if the 2022 Chrysler 300 won’t be produced.
How can 2022 Chrysler 300 be different from its predecessor?
Following the rumor of the discontinuing of Chrysler 300 in 2021, some speculations have emerged about a new generation for 2022 as well. Fortunately, the Chrysler 300 is not being discontinued at least until 2021. It is expected to be launched this fall but due to the pandemic, the release of the current model is postponed.
Seen from the previous years, for sure Chrysler will only make a subtle change for consecutive model year. Even, there is hardly any change in the current model of Chrysler 300. There is not much to expect since Chrysler is not fond of bringing ground-breaking updates for each sequential model year.
The worst thing is that the possibility that FCA will cut off the 300 from the lineup. If there are only two trims left next year, what about the upcoming year in 2020? If FCA still produce a new model for 2022, it is predicted that it will still offer premium style, luxury, and performance like its predecessor but with a few alterations.
The alteration might be found on the infotainment system and safety features. With the technology that is always evolved, for sure some key features of the car will be more advanced. Meanwhile, the interior and exterior is predicted to remain classic but of course there will be some updates too.
Rumors about the Chrysler 300
Since last two years, rumors about the cancellation of the 300 have been around. That could well happen but surprisingly until today, the big, outdated look sedan refuses to die, at least, not yet. Good news for the Chrysler 300 fans that the full-size sedan will return next year with a few changes.
There are only two trims available next year; 300 Touring, and 300 Touring L. Meanwhile the 300s is discontinued. Also, wood trim, Nappa leather, and other upscale items will be absent. What will the future of the Chrysler 300 look if it lacks its luxurious features? Can it still survive in the market? Just hope that it is not the beginning of the end.
Unfortunately, until today, there have not been much information about the 2022 Chrysler 300. The latest news about the 300 is the upcoming release date of the 2021 version which will be around the end of the year. It is also still unsure whether the current model can win over the competitors like Chevrolet Impala and Toyota Avalon.
