Chrysler 300C John Varvatos Limited Edition Returns For 2014
Chrysler 300C John Varvatos Limited Edition was unboxed officially last year. Now Chrysler is ready to introduce the car for the MY2014 by adding to it an advanced all-wheel-drive (AWD) system. Of course, the car retains its unique John Varvatos design styling characteristics and the unique Phantom Black tri-coat exterior paint with discrete metallic finishes.
Furthermore, the exterior also gets a Titanium-finished grille surround, Titanium Chrome Chrysler "wing" badge, Black Chrome grille blades, larger air inlets and Titanium-finished accents. For the standard model, Chrysler has chosen the 20-inch cast-aluminum wheels, while for the AWD model - 19-inch ones. Titanium day light opening surrounds and mirror caps add to the aggressive stance of the car. Going to the rear, the car sports LED taillamps with blackened detail, titanium dual-exhaust tips, and John Varvatos and Chrysler wing deck-lid badges finished also in Titanium Chrome.
The interior of the 300C John Varvatos LE is made with high-quality materials and features stylish design elements. For instance, John Varvatos' logos are debossed on the Pewter Metallic leather seats, which were also tailored with unique Diesel Gray and black pattern Varvatos stitching. Specifically designed gauge cluster and clock with Pearlescent White face and Charcoal Black Metallic bezels complement the cabin.
Poltrona Frau black leather with Diesel Gray accent stitching were used for the seats, while the heated steering wheel is decided in Diesel Gray thread and features Titanium Chrome accents and hand-stitching. Titanium, Charcoal Hydrographic Wood and Gloss Black finished interior accents complete the inner look of the model.
2014 Chrysler 300C John Varvatos Limited Edition can be equipped with a choice of tqe powertrains. The first one is the aluminum 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine which produces 292 horsepower (215 kW), while the second one is the 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 that generates 363 horsepower (267 kW) and is fitted with four-cylinder mode Fuel Saver Technology.
New for the 2014 is the intelligent AWD that features an active transfer case and front-axle-disconnect system. If the vehicle doesn't use the AWD when it is not needed, the system automatically disconnects the front axle and starts delivering better fuel efficiency.
The last highlight regarding this limited edition is that it is equipped with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The gearbox delivers quicker acceleration, smoother shifts and great fuel efficiency due to the addition of three more gear ratios.
Precisely, the number are the following: highway fuel economy - 31 mpg; V-6 all-wheel-drive (AWD) fuel economy - 18 mpg city and 27 mpg highway; combined fuel economy - 23 mpg with RWD, 21 with AWD; city fuel economy - 19 mpg RWD, 18 mpg AWD; overall fuel economy - 19 mpg city and 31 mpg highway with RWD.
2014 Chrysler 300C John Varvatos Limited Edition has a price of $44,480 USD, while the new AWD model comes with a starting price of $46,980 USD.
