Remember the Chrysler 300 SRT? So do we, but we sadly report that the high-performance version of Mopar’s top-spec full-size sled is no longer in the US of A, but according to CARandDRIVER, it’s been updated to continue being sold abroad in markets like Australia, Japan, South Africa, and South Korea.
That’s a bit sad since the Chrysler 300 SRT had a lot to be loved, such as its massive 6.4L V8 good for 470hp with an eight-speed automatic, making it more or less a budget Mercedes-AMG E63 sedan. It’s also wrapped up in a much more sophisticated looking body, minimizing the 300’s initial reputation of being a “pimp’s car.”
The axing of the 300 SRT is also a bit of an interesting move, but understandable since they’re hardly selling, since Chrysler is still having profound success with new models such as the Dodge Hellcat twins and Jeep’s new incoming Hellcat-powered Grand Cherokee Trackhawk.
Will you miss the Chrysler 300 SRT?
