Chrysler is planning to introduce the 300C model to China in the nearby future, where the luxury vehicle will compete with the same rivals as in the United States.
Even if there is no official word on launching the Chrysler 300C in China yet, the guys at chinacartimes.com are saying that the model will arrive in the country soon, where it will battle against vehicles like the Toyota Camry. The Chrysler 300C is expected to be launched in China in May, 2012, and the first imported model to arrive will be powered by the 3.6 liter V6 engine, mated to an eight-speed transmission. Pricing is expected to be set at 400,000rmb.
As a reminder, the Chrysler 300 Luxury Series Sedan has a starting price of 40,145 USD in the United States, and the entry-level version is being powered by the 3.6 liter Pentastar V6 engine, which is developing a total output of 292 horsepower. A larger 5.7 liter HEMI V8 unit is also available, and this one is coming with 363 horsepower. Both models can come with an all-wheel drive system for an additional 2,350 USD. The Chrysler 300C is offering 31 mpg on the highway in the smaller version with rear-wheel drive.
