Chrysler released a special version of the 300 Sedan for the cold season, aptly named the Glacier edition. It is based on the 300S model, and features what Chrysler claims to be the segment’s most advanced all-wheel-drive (AWD) system.
The 300 Glacier comes with the 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine with new sport-tuned exhaust and cold-air induction system delivering 300 horsepower. Hooked up to an eight-speed automatic transmission and of course that AWD system, it returns 18 mpg city / 27 mpg highway. You can also have it with the 363 horsepower HEMI V8.
Chrysler’s all-wheel-drive system has an active transfer case and front-axle-disconnect system. That means most of the time the car is rear-wheel-drive, with the front axle being engaged only when needed. That improves fuel economy.
As for the visual features, the 300 Glacier edition features Gloss Black mirrors, headlamp bezels and Black Chrome sculpted horizontal grille blades, and rides on 19-inch 8-spoke wheels. Inside you get Piano Black on interior center stack, instrument panel, steering wheel, gauge cluster and door panel elements, plus cloth and leather upholstery.
Prices for the 300 Glacier edition start from $36,845 (excluding $995 destination).
