Product Overview

Chrysler 300M is a full-size sedan in production from 1998 to 2004. It was available with a couple of V6 engines that displaced 2.7 and 3.5 liters. The smaller one was limited to the European market.
The 300M was built on Chrysler's LH platform and could be considered a smaller LHS with more emphasis on dynamics and handling. It had roughly the same design language as found on the Concorde of the time.
Over the model's production run, Chrysler continued to add small tweaks to the 300M. However, the real change came when its replacement, the 300, finally switched back to RWD.
