Last Chrysler 300C Built from Assembly Line

Electricity Reigns Supreme: 300 Bows Down

This month is witnessing the phase-out of the iconic Chrysler 300, as part of Stellantis’ efforts to electrify it. To mark the closing of the manufacture of the last Hemi-powered 300C from its Brampton plant, this was dressed up in a Velvet Red livery. Furthermore, the company has declared that the production of the 300 will be completely ceased on December 31, 2023.

After being absent from the lineup for two years, the 2023 Chrysler 300C has returned to honor its Hemi-powered predecessor that was introduced back in 1957. The 300C’s final model run for 2021 featured only 2,000 made for the US market (200 in Canada) and it sold out in a mere 12 hours after the unveiling.

The concluding 300C boasts a 6.4-liter Hemi powertrain, capable of producing 485 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque. Accelerating from an idle to 60 mph in just 4.3 seconds, this monster can reach a remarkable maximum speed of 160 mph.

The twentieth twenty-three edition of the model boasts additional action characteristics, including the iconic red four-piston Brembo brakes, a 3.09 fixed-ratio diff, active damping shocks, and black-tinted rounded exhaust pipes. To complete the aesthetic, the exterior now flaunts a modified tri-color 300C medallion, adorned with jet-black trimmings. With that, the internal is graced with the new 300C logo appliquéd on the black Laguna leather panel on the front seats.

“The Chrysler brand is proud to recognize the legacy of the Chrysler 300C, a historic symbol of American muscle and luxuriousness,” commented Chris Feuell, CEO of Chrysler. “It has truly earned its place as an automotive icon.”

“As we commemorate the last Hemi-powered 300C to roll off the production line with our Brampton team members, we are equally enthused to collaborate as the Chrysler brand transitions to an all-electric, sustainable future as part of the Stellantis Dare Forward 2030 strategy,” Feuell declared.

“Our workforce here at Brampton Assembly has a reputation for crafting top-notch vehicles, and the Chrysler 300C was no exception,” said Alex Pittas, plant manager at Brampton Assembly. “We are proud of the level of craftsmanship and attention to detail that went into all 2,200 units that were produced in 2023.”

Come 2025, a fresh page will be penned for Chrysler with the emanation of its initiatory electric vehicle (EV) in the design of a two-row electric crossover. Concurrently, the flagship 300 car series will traverse onwards donning its zero-emissions powertrain – shown to vendors last April.
