What are the generations of Chrysler 300 vehicles?

The first generation of these Chrysler vehicles were produced from 2005 through 2010. The second generation includes Chryslers manufactured from 2011 through 2017.

What engines are in first-generation Chrysler 300 vehicles?

There were five different motors featured in the first generation of these Chrysler vehicles. The base version was fitted with a 2.7 L V6 motor and produced 190 horsepower. Base versions designed to drive in Canada were released with the 3.5 L V6 used in the Chrysler 300 Touring models. The V6 motors used in the Touring version produce 250 horsepower and 250 lb-ft of torque.

The Limited version of this Chrysler features leather-trimmed seats and comes equipped with the 3.5 V6 motor used in the Touring edition. The 300C sedan comes equipped with a 5.7 L Hemi V8 motor. With all eight cylinders operating, this motor produces up to 340 horsepower.

The multi-displacement system included allows this Hemi V8 motor to operate with only four cylinders anytime less power is required. This motor also features an induction tube equipped on the side of the block. The pushrod induction tube pulls and pushes air into the induction area, improving the motors power output and fuel efficiency. The motor features OHV, pushrod design, and two spark plugs per cylinder.
