The 2014 Chrysler 300S has been updated with more “blacked out” exterior design cues and a new Ambassador Blue sport interior, among new features.
The ever-so lightly refreshed 300S features a more homochromous look with body-color door handles and fascia inserts. In addition, there’s new Gloss Black belt molding, daylight opening surrounds and tail lamp bezels are combined with Gloss Black headlamp bezels.
There’s also a new Black Chrome grille surround, with the grille features sculpted horizontal grille blades in the same unique finish. The front and rear Chrysler wing badges are in Liquid Chrome with black “Chrysler” center logo. As an option, Chrysler offers a Gloss Black painted roof.
The 2014 300S brings new 20-inch wheel design (19-inch with AWD) featuring a more sculptured appearance and Hyper Black finish. Also new for the 2014 model year is the Dark Ceramic Gray exterior color.
On the inside, the dark Ambassador Blue Nappa leather seats are the most important update. The center console armrest and door armrests are color matched to the seats and feature silver accent stitching.
The flagship model of the 300C range continues to be offered with a standard Uconnect 8.4 infotainment system with a touchscreen display, Beats by Dr.Dre audio system with 10 speakers and a 12-channel amplifier and Piano Black trims on the interior center stack, instrument panel, steering wheel, gauge cluster and door panel elements.
Under the hood, there’s the same 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine that produces 300 hp and 264 lb-ft (358 Nm) of torque. The unit is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters. The 300S is also offered with the 5.7-liter Hemi V8 engine with 370hp.
