2016 Chevrolet SS vs. 2016 Chrysler 300
The 2016 Chevrolet SS and the 2016 Chrysler 300 are both large rear-wheel drive sedans that offer upscale features and powerful engines. These are family sedans for the driving enthusiast, and if that sounds like the car you want, then read on to see how they compare. You’ll find that the SS simply pulls away from the 300 in a head-to-head matchup.
Powertrain and Performance
The Chrysler 300 is equipped with a 3.6L V6 that generates 292 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. That model will take 6.9 seconds to get up to 60 mph. The 300 is also offered with 5.7L V8 that cranks out 363 hp and 394 lb-ft of torque.
The Chevrolet SS comes standard with a 6.2L V8 that cranks out 415 hp and 415 lb-ft of torque. That muscle is enough to push the SS from 0 to 60 mph in only 4.9 seconds. Both a six-speed automatic and a six-speed manual are available and rear-wheel drive is the standard configuration.
You can see that the Chevy SS is the true performance car lovers’ choice.
Beyond performance, another major consideration is probably cabin space—you are searching for a large sedan, after all. The SS gives you more front leg room, more front and rear head room, more front and rear hip room, and more rear shoulder room, for a larger cabin overall than the 300. Plus, the Chevrolet SS also offers more trunk space than the Chrysler 300.
Features and Options
The Chevy SS comes standard with features like remote start, OnStar Telematics with emergency notification, 4G LTE connectivity, in-car Wi-Fi hotspot, and more. You won’t find any of that equipment standard in the base Chrysler 300.
