The Chrysler 300 Glacier Edition is yet another evolution of the popular American exevutive sedan based on the 300S version and is described as the “ultimate all-weather athlete“, meaning it should be able to get itself out of trouble even in the worst possible weather conditions. The model comes with four wheel drive but the traction on the front axle can be disabled to improve fuel economy. The car is equipped with 19-inch 8-spoke aluminum wheels fitted with all-season performance tires, a new cold air intake and sport exhaust system.
Chrysler engineers have obviously paid more attention to the aesthetics of the car, introducing an exclusive Glacier Blue Pearl paint option (Bright White and Billet Silver Metallic are other two options avalable for this series) and changing the finish of wing mirrors and front grille (now both in black) and getting rid of some chrome details in favour of body-color matching ones. On request, a similar treatment can be applied to the roof as well. The all-black interior gets sports seats in mixed leather/fabric upholstery, glossy piano-black and carbon fiber details, steering wheel-mounted die-cast paddle shifters, dedicated floor mats and a few “Glacier” logos scattered all around the cabin.
The Chrysler 300 Glacier is available with two petrol engines options: a 3.6-liter V6 Pentastar unit delivering 304 hp and a 5.7-liter V8 HEMI unit credited with an output of 368 hp, both of which are mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. The car was firstly introduced last September and will go on sale in a matter of days. This special-edition 2013 Chrysler 300 has been priced at $37,840.
