Despite that the current version of the full-size sedan has been around for almost a decade, it looks like FCA doesn’t plan to replace or discontinue it. The latest reports suggest the next-year model will certainly come. Moreover, there is a big chance to see another version in the offer. It would come as the 2021 Chrysler 300 SRT8 and as you may presume, it will feature a new engine with plenty of power. Besides plenty of power, this engine will also come with loads of other features and some of the things that come to mind are new styling details and a couple of interior upgrades. Furthermore, some sources suggest adaptive suspension too. In any case, we expect to see this model sometime in the second half of the year.
2021 Chrysler 300 SRT8 Engine
Without any doubt, this would be the most interesting part of the potential 2021 Chrysler 300 SRT8. Of course, we count on plenty of power but we don’t expect to see a mightful Hellcat engine under the hood. Instead, we are pretty sure that Chrysler is going to stick to a naturally-aspirated engine and the one that comes to our minds is a large 6.4-liter HEMI unit. This engine puts out around 470 horsepower and 475 pound-feet of torque and we think this amount of power would be enough to move this large and heavy sedan from zero to sixty in a little bit over four seconds. Also, it wouldn’t be a surprise if we see a manual gearbox in the offer too.
The rest of the engine lineup is expected to remain the same, which means that the base version would come with a well-known 3.6-liter V6, which in this case puts out around 292 horsepower. Also, you may count on a 5.7-liter V8, which is good for 363 ponies.
2021 Chrysler 300 SRT8 Design
When it comes to base design characteristics, the 2021 Chrysler 300 SRT8 will be heavily based on the standard model. However, we count on various upgrades. When it comes to mechanics, we have no doubt that this version will come with tuned suspension and brakes. Moreover, some sources suggest adaptive suspension. In terms of the styling, the base look would remain, but we would also see a variety of new details. In order to accentuate its performance character, the new model would come with new parts like bumpers, wheels, low-profile tires etc. A couple of exclusive color options are also possible.
When it comes to the interior design, we presume that the 2021 Chrysler 300 SRT8 would come with a couple of upgrades as well. Some of the things that come to mind are upgraded seats with more support, exclusive color schemes, a couple of sporty accents and similar things. Of course, a couple of “SRT8” badges would be nice as well. On the other side, the overall cabin layout would remain the same, which means that you may count on the same cabin, which offers decent overall quality and more than a decent list of standard equipment. Also, this is one of the most spacious sedans you can get on the market, which comes with two generous rows of seats, which accommodate adults with ease. Also, the cargo area is pretty big for the class.
2021 Chrysler 300 SRT8 Release Date and Price
The 2021 Chrysler 300 SRT8 is just a rumor at the moment and we can’t say whether it’s going to hit the market for sure or not. Still, the rumors say it could be ready for the next year. If it arrives, our rough estimation is that the price would go around 50.000 dollars.
