What Our Members Are Saying about the Powertrain of the 2012 Chrysler 300

2012 Chrysler 300 Powertrain: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2012 4dr Sedan 470-horsepower 6.4L V8
5-speed shiftable automatic RWD
The SRT8 model is all about performance, but the cost is the poor fuel economy. 0-60 sprints take fewer than 5 seconds and Quarter miles are done in fewer than 12.5. Unfortunately, the more refi ned engine isn't as throaty as the old model. Starting my 6.1 via remote was something I looked forward to each time I drove it. This model is quieter and doesn't let on what power lurks beneath. see full Chrysler 300 review
2012 4dr Sedan 292-horsepower 3.6L V6
8-speed shiftable automatic RWD
The V6 has P L E N T Y of power whenever you need it. The 8 speen tranny is fun in shift mode and smooth as silk all by itself. One caveat.....when you put it in park, make sure, the electronic shifter takes a minute to get used to as there is no "position" for any gear. see full Chrysler 300 review
2011 4dr Sedan 292-horsepower 3.6L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic RWD
The 3.6 Pentastar engine in this car is probably the most surprising performance engine I have driven considering the weight and size of the 300. Looking for a 300 and unsure what engine to get? The 3.6 choice will not be regretted. see full Chrysler 300 review

2012 Chrysler 300 Tires: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2012 4dr Sedan 470-horsepower 6.4L V8
5-speed shiftable automatic RWD
The original 300 SRT8 came with staggered tires 275/40/R20 and 245/45/R20 (Goodyear Eagle RSA). The new models only offer a $150 upgrade to 3-season summer tires (Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar 24 5/45/R20), but buyers with deep pockets can change that immediately. see full Chrysler 300 review
