It's still a good looking car, and it's plenty comfortable on long hauls, but the 300 lags behind the competition in several different ways.
The Chrysler 300 has been offering semi-throwback looks and big-body cruising since 2004.
More than a decade later, it still offers these things, which is both good and bad.
The segment has grown up around the 300, meaning a good car is now competing against better cars.
The 300 is a handsome car, but its look is starting to age in the face of new looks from Nissan, Toyota and others.
There's also the matter of its segment positioning.
Chrysler has a luxury angle to its vehicles, yet this car is priced to compete with non-luxury vehicles.
This specific 300 comes with the Anniversary Package, which adds a few aesthetic updates for a couple thousand bucks.
All in, our 300 tester costs $38,505.
The 300 is still a good car, but its features list is only OK and its fuel economy is on the low side.
In the face of some excellent competition, you're going to need a very good reason to remain faithful to the 300.
