Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) Australia streamlined its facelifted MkII 300 model range in August 2015, eliminating a trio of slow-selling diesels and trimming its V6 petrol range from four to two variants.
Banished were the V6-powered 300 Limited and 300S, along with the 300 Limited, 300C and 300C Luxury diesels.
Both 300s were powered by an unchanged version of Chrysler’s Pentastar 3.6-litre V6 petrol engine that makes 210kW and 340Nm of torque, backed by an eight-speed automatic transmission.
The SRT8 range still sat atop the 300 tree, with an updated version of the Hemi V8-powered sedan released in November 2015.
