From Chrysler press: New technologies and exterior and interior refinements continue to offer 2008 Chrysler 300 customers an elegant, confidence-inspiring vehicle at an exceptional value.
Three powertrain options are available in the 2008 Chrysler 300 lineup, offering outstanding combinations of performance, fuel economy, quietness and durability.
The rear-wheel-drive 2008 Chrysler 300 LX is equipped with a 2.7-liter V-6 engine providing 178 hp (133 kW) @ 5500 rpm and 190 lb.-ft. (258 N•m) of torque @ 4000.
A 3.5-liter High Output V-6 engine featured on the rear-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive Chrysler 300 Touring and Chrysler 300 Limited models provides 250 hp (186 kW) @ 6400 rpm and 250 lb.-ft. (340 N•m) of torque @ 3800 rpm.
The 2008 Chrysler 300C rear-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive models feature the modern 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine equipped with a Multi-displacement System (MDS). MDS seamlessly turns off the fuel consumption in four cylinders when V-8 power is not needed, improving fuel economy as much as 20 percent. HEMI'S “Fuel Saver Mode” display, included as part of the Electronic Vehicle Information Center, tells drivers when they are in four-cylinder mode, allowing them to modify their driving habits for improved fuel efficiency.
The 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine provides 340 hp (254 kW) @ 5000 rpm and 390 lb.-ft of torque (258 N•m) @ 4000. The HEMI-powered 2008 Chrysler 300C can go from zero to 60 mph in just 6.3 seconds.
