Chrysler 300S V-6 and V-8 AWD models
Providing additional all-season confidence, the Chrysler 300S V-6 and V-8
all-wheel-drive (AWD) models utilize 19-inch polished-face aluminum wheels
with black painted pockets, P235/55R19 all-season performance tires and the
most advanced AWD system in its class.
For inclement weather driving conditions and exceptional road manners, the
all-new 2011 Chrysler 300S AWD models feature a segment-exclusive active
transfer case and front-axle disconnect system. This exclusive AWD system
also is designed to improve fuel economy by up to 5 percent over
competitive full-time all AWD systems. No other major automotive
manufacturer offers the combination of these two independent technologies.
The Chrysler flagship sedan's innovative AWD system seamlessly transitions
between rear-wheel drive (RWD) and AWD with no driver intervention. When
AWD is not required, the system automatically disconnects the front axle to
maximize fuel economy while still providing the outstanding performance and
handling inherent in RWD vehicles.
The 2012 Chrysler 300S letter-series models arrive at Chrysler dealerships
in the fall of 2011.
