The 2007 Chrysler 300 Long Wheelbase was on display at the New York International Auto Show, April 14-23.
The new Chrysler 300 is 152mm longer than current models, providing an additional 288 litres of interior space, and more than 1168mm of rear legroom. Available in the US later this year, the lengthier Chrysler 300 is expected to attract sales from the livery/limousine industry, as well as retail customers.
“The 300 Long Wheelbase will have six inches more of the elegant, distinct design that made the Chrysler 300 the most-awarded new car in automotive history,” said David Rooney, director, Chrysler Marketing Communications. “In addition, limousine-like features have been added and custom options are available. The result is a truly distinctive and personalised experience for commercial and retail customers, all for what will be an affordable price.”
Both the 300 Touring and 300C Long Wheelbase models can be ordered with unique, personalised features, including lighted rear writing tables, two 12-volt power ports for computers and mobile phones, footrests, lighted vanity mirrors and directional reading lights for rear passengers. Custom paint colors or pinstriping is also available.
Engine options include the 3.5-litre V6 and the 5.7-litre V8 HEMI. The Chrysler 300 Touring Long Wheelbase model will be equipped with a 3.5-litre V6 engine, providing 250hp – more than some domestic V8 competitors. The 300C Long Wheelbase will have the 5.7-litre V8 HEMI engine, generating 340hp, and the Multi-Displacement System (MDS), which reduces the number of cylinders from eight to four when less power is required, thereby improving fuel economy. The 300 Long Wheelbase will be modified by Accubuilt, a leading custom specialty vehicle manufacturer with more than 128 years of experience, based in Lima, Ohio, and will be sold through Chrysler dealerships.
