Chrysler 300m 0-60 Test
(This time was achieved by manually shifting)
The Chrysler 300M:
The Chrysler 300M was produced from 1999 to 2004 after Chrysler's revival of the 300 name. Chrysler's goal of the 300M was to compete with similar sporty sedan imports which was a market not yet probed by other American auto makers. This time the 300 would be FWD with a 255 hp V6 engine car in the LH platform. This engine would be the only one available for the 300M. It was shared with the Plymouth Prowler and a limited edition R/T variant of the second-generation Dodge Intrepid. Rated at 253 HP, and 255 lb-ft of torque, it was connected to the 42LE, a four-speed automatic transmission with Autostick, which allowed manual selection of gears. The 300M was much more of a luxury car as opposed the older Chrysler letter cars.

Limit Pushing - Chrysler 300C Hemi 0-60 Test
5.9 is the rated 0-60 on the 2005 300C, so we were pleased when we got six
flat on the almost four year old car.
The 300C comes with a 5.7 L Hemi V8. At full power, the 300C creates 340 hp
and 390 lbs of torque. This engine runs on four cylinders when less power
is needed to reduce fuel consumption. Even with this energy saving mode,
the 300C runs at 15 mpg city, 23 mpg highway. All 300Cs use a 5-speed
automatic transmission and standard 18 inch chrome-clad alloy wheels.
The Heritage Edition 300C comes with the 5.7 L Hemi engine and many of the
SRT-8's exterior modification, added chrome, special tires on 18 inch
wheels, and SmartBeam headlights.
Special SRT Packages:
In 2007 the SRT Design group created a package for non-SRT 300C's that
includes performance suspension, SRT 20 inch polished aluminum wheels, a
high speed engine controller with revised tuning for 5.7 L HEMI that brings
the power to 350 HP, high flow air cleaner system, and performance Exhaust.
The SRT-8 version of the 300 includes a 6.1 L Hemi V8 which produces 425
hp. This engine produces 0-60 mph times of 5.1 seconds. The SRT-8 includes
leather SRT-8 performance seats, 20 inch polished aluminum wheels, Brembo
brakes, and rear lip spoiler.
Limit Pushing - Volvo S60 2.5T 0-60 Test
The S60 was the first Volvo to leave behind the 80's and 90's boxy design.
Built on the P2 platform, the S60, along with many other models, followed
much smoother contour lines than previous models. The S60 was at first
powered by a 247 hp 2.3 liter turbo 5
cylinder engine but was then upgraded to 2.4 liters increasing the power by
ten horses. In 2003 the S60 R was introduced with a Haldex AWD system,
Brembo brakes, a 296 hp I5 engine and a 6 speed transmission. The S60
utilized a suspension system called Four-C which upon selected could adjust
the car's electronically controlled shock absorbers to Comfort, Sport, or
Advanced while adjusting up to 500 times a second keeping the car level on
Limit Pushing - 2002 Jeep Liberty Sport 0-60 Test
2002 Jeep Liberty Sport 0-60 Test
The Jeep Liberty:
The Jeep Liberty is a compact SUV produced under the Chrysler Company.
Introduced in 2002 as a replacement for the Cherokee, the Liberty was
priced to fall between the prices of the Wrangler and Grand Cherokee. It
was the smallest Jeep SUV until the Compass and Patriot were created in
2007. The Liberty featured a unibody-on-ladder-frame construction, which
added stiffness to its ride and handling for enhanced off-road
capabilities. The Liberty is assembled in Toledo in the United States, as
well as in Egypt and Venezuela.
The Liberty's design came from a combination of two concept cars named the
Dakar and Jeepster. It was created to replace the discontinued Jeep
Cherokee. The Liberty is available in three trim levels; the top end
Limited, a more rugged looking Renegade and the base Sport. All trims were
available with either 2WD or 4WD. In 2007, the Renegade trim level was
replaced with the Latitude.
The Liberty was the first Jeep to use two new PowerTech engines; the 150 hp
2.4 L I4 which was dropped in 2006, and the 210 hp 3.7 L V6. The VM Motori
2.8 L I4 turbodiesel, became available
in CRD 2005--2006 Sport and Limited models. The diesel version generated
160 horsepower and
295 lbs-ft of torque. Chrysler introduced the CRD to gauge the
marketability of diesel engines in North America in comparison with the
European market. The Liberty was also the first Jeep vehicle to use rack
and pinion steering.
this intake has good sound. I just need a new muffler set up .
2003 Chrysler 300M Special Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Tour
One of my all time favorite cars back when I had my 2000 300m in high
school, still one of my favorites, it was such a treat to finally check
this car out after all these years! In this video I give a full in depth
tour of the 2003 Chrysler 300M Special. I take viewers on a close look
through the interior and exterior of this car while showing details, over
viewing of features, and noting unique styling cues to the vehicle itself.
I also show the engine and the details of it, start it up and see how it
sounds under acceleration. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to
give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
