The last 300C special model has already left the factory, and by the end of the year, only the standard RWD American sedan will be made.
The last Chrysler 300C has been taken off the assembly line.
During its last year of production, the company brought back the 300C performance model, which had a 485-hp 6.4-liter V-8 engine from Dodge’s range.
The less interesting 300 car will stop being made at the end of the year.
Today, the last Chrysler 300C car rolled off the line in Brampton, Ontario. It’s time to honor a living legend. After a two-year break, the company revealed that the powerful 300C model would only be made in 2200 units, with 2000 going to the US and 200 going to our northern neighbors. Stellantis, the parent business, says that all of the cars were sold in 12 hours after they were shown off last year.
The latest 300 model came out in 2011 and got a facelift in 2015 that added new technology and an automatic engine with eight speeds. After that, Chrysler forgot about it until they chose to end it.
The $300 has a 3.6-liter V-6 engine with 292 horsepower, but the 300C has a much more powerful 6.4-liter V-8 engine with 485 horsepower. In July, the Mopar V-8 sped our test car to 60 mph in just 4.4 seconds.
The 300 won’t really be over yet—that won’t happen for another three weeks. Stellantis says that the last 300s will be made no later than December 31. For the 300’s Dodge siblings, electric (and maybe even gas-powered) replacements have been approved, but not for the 300 itself. That means the end of an American icon when production stops at the end of the month.
