According to the car manufacturer, patient the Chinese edition of the North American vehicle will have a starting price of around 79,000 USD and the model will go against locally made long wheelbase sedans made by premium brands such as Mercedes-Benz, Audi, BMW or Volvo. The company is saying that the Chrysler 300C for China will be fitted with leather upholstery, heated front and rear seats, ventilated front and rear seats and hand-sanded matte wood trim, amongst others.

Power to the Chinese Chrysler 300C will be provided by the car manufacturer’s 3.6 liter Pentastar V6 engine, not by the Hemi V8 and the model has already been presented to the public during the 2012 Beijing Motor Show in April as the Ruyi concept. As a quick reminder, the Chrysler 300 Ruyi concept had a Maximum Steel exterior with dark chrome accents, tinted windows, leather or suede seats, black chrome accents, brushed pattern trim and 22-inch alloy wheels. The models’ 3.6 liter V6 was developing 292 HP and 353 Nm of torque (260 lb-ft), mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission powering the rear wheels.
