Many car enthusiasts were expecting to see the end of the production of this full-size sedan. However, the famous luxury car continues and the new model brings familiar design and features. Famous for its robust styling, the Chrysler 300 offers a luxurious and muscular approach to the class of large cars. At this point, we know that the novelties for the next year are things like new color options. However, some reports suggest we are about to see more in this year. Some sources even suggest the 2020 Chrysler 300 Hellcat, which could arrive in the next couple of months. This would be a great addition to the lineup, which already consists of several great versions but lacks a hi-performance variant.
2020 Chrysler 300 Hellcat Engine
The most important feature of the 2020 Chrysler 300 Hellcat would definitely be the engine. Of course, we count on the famous 6.2-liter Supercharged V8, which can be found under the Challenger Hellcat. Also, we count on it’s updated version, which delivers around 717 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque. With such an impressive amount of power, we should see spectacular acceleration and overall performances. Also, we hope that the manual gearbox will be in the offer, while an 8-speed automatic seems like a certain thing.
On the other side, the rest of the lineup should carry on in the same ways. This means that base versions will continue with a well-known 3.6-liter V6 Pentastar, which is good for about 292 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. Also, there is another well-known unit, the capable and reliable 5.7-liter HEMI V8, which in this case delivers around 363 horsepower. In both cases, you may count on a smooth-shifting 8-speed automatic transmission, while AWD is also available.
2020 Chrysler 300 Hellcat Design
In terms of base design characteristics, the 2020 Chrysler 300 Hellcat won’t be much different compared to the rest of the lineup. Still, there is a whole bunch of upgrades that we expect to see. Most of them will be similar to the 300S model, which already comes with a load of exclusive features. Of course, most of them refer to the suspension and chassis setup. There are things like performance-tuned suspension with increased spring rates, performance-tuned steering and bushings, larger sway bars and Goodyear Eagle F1 three-season tires. The 2020 Chrysler 300 Hellcat should come with all these and could include a couple of more additions as well.
Styling and Interior Design
Of course, we also count on various styling upgrades on this model. For example, we could see revised bumpers, while exclusive wheels and color options seem like a certain thing. Add to this a couple of more unique styling details and the 2020 Chrysler 300 Hellcat will definitely be able to deliver a styling that accentuates its hi-performance character.
The same thing goes for interior design. Exclusive features are always welcoming, so we could see new trimming, new seats, steering wheel and similar things. Still, the overall layout should remain the same, so you may count on a familiar dashboard design, which hasn’t changed since the initial launch in 2011. Despite the age, this sedan still features one of the finest cabins in the class. Fine materials are all around, while the sound insulation is amazing.
Finally, we could see a couple of additions in terms of standard equipment. This particularly refers to tech goodies, though the current model already looks pretty impressive in this aspect, considering that things like a large 8.4-inch touchscreen, smartphone integration and navigation are on the list of standard features.
2020 Chrysler 300 Hellcat Release Date and Price
According to some sources, this version could arrive in the next couple of months. When it comes to the 2020 Chrysler 300 Hellcat price, we expect it will go around 60.000 dollars.
