Larger diameter valves and reshaped cylinder ports in the heads allow for maximized air flow. Top speed will be electronically limited to 168 mph. It includes a waterproof liner and folding divider with cargo retaining nets. With the co operation of Alpine we had the opportunity to showcase the type of in car entertainment that is available for relatively small outlays. The torque peak arrives at 4800 rpm. After the muscle-car era, U.
The highest specific output engine offered by Chrysler in a production car thus far has been the 1991-92 2. The power-assisted rack-and-pinion setup is predictable and never surprises, but it lacks the feedback you want in a car so willing to defy centripetal forces. We've wanted to do something like this for years and now we have. E490 is a vehicle that reflects the performance heritage of Chryslers past as well as our present range. When used, small items can be stored below this floor panel. Intake and exhaust valve stems are hollow, and the exhaust valve stems are filled with sodium to help dissipate heat more efficiently.
Metallic trim adorns the center console and doors, but it doesn't change the plastic-filled cabin to the extent that the rest of the modifications alter the character of the car. The 300C model is a Turismo car manufactured by Chrysler, with 4 doors and 5 seats, sold new from year 2006 to 2008, and available after that as a used car.

Because in both cases a Ferrari-like devotion to driver happiness is the reason they exist, and no one does it as well for the money. As a child of the muscle-car era, I suppose I subscribe to the foregoing more than most. About chassis details responsible for road holding, handling behaviour and ride confort, the 300C has Coil springs. The load floor has a removable tri-fold panel that weighs just 7.
The front rotors measure 14. The E490 customer evaluation vehicle represents the range of enhancements that customers make to their 300C's. Stops from 70 mph take only 162 feet of real estate, and these brakes do so over and over again with no sign of fade. A heavy-duty four-flange prop shaft sends the torque from the transmission to an upgraded rear differential and axle. This engine produced 224 horsepower. Additional cargo can be carried on the optional roof bars that come with two cross bars.
Performance-oriented camshaft profiles were developed to balance total vehicle requirements, simultaneously allowing more air in and out of cylinders. When removed, the maximum available load height is increased by 102 mm 4. The steering is nothing if not manly. It's a real buzz to be able to utilise our assets in this way. An optional cargo-management system is available, which stores below the tri-fold panel.
E490 embodies the true spirit of the Chrysler Group. We thought it was time to show a wider audience that the 300C is a unique automotive canvass that can be as individual as its buyers.

I doubt their German bosses paid much attention when the econobox Neon was turbocharged to within an inch of its life or when a Dodge Ram pickup truck was endowed with 500 horses. Perhaps more impressive is that from 70 to 0, it halts those two-plus tons in a fade-free 162 feet. So why do we want both of them in our garage so badly? The E490 is probably the most exciting thing that I have personally been involved in for many years. Manual transmissions in sedans this large and with this much power somehow feel out of place and too often suffer from high efforts that make them difficult to drive smoothly.
New front and rear suspension knuckles contribute to a ride height lowered 13 mm 0. This increases performance and manages a higher engine speed, which is another method to increase horsepower. New stuff includes just a single hot camshaft sitting in the block, 16 lightened valves, and a forged crankshaft that allows the large V-8 to spin to a melodic 6400 rpm. Within each of the large diameter 20-inch wheels are high performance brake calipers developed by Brembo — well known in racing and high-performance circles — equipped with four pistons for unrivalled stopping performance.
