Just when the 2006 new model year looked complete, along comes the 300C Touring SRT8

29 Dec 2006

CHRISTMAS may be over but what better way to celebrate the festive season than with Chrysler's brand-new 300C Touring SRT8.

Launched just prior to Christmas and packing the same 317kW/569Nm 6.1-litre HEMI V8 as the 300C SRT8 sedan, Chrysler says its piping-hot super-wagon is the fastest wagon available for less than $150,000, making it just the thing to treat the family to a high-performance holiday.

The 300C SRT8 Touring is on sale now, priced at $74,990, and is expected to add incremental sales volume to Chrysler Australia's booming 300C SRT8 business, which already accounts for 10 per cent of its total model sales.

"Ditch the reindeer - this year for Christmas Chrysler is exciting driving enthusiasts with the fastest wagon under $150,000," said the managing director for the Chrysler Group in Australia, Gerry Jenkins.

"With its combination of jaw dropping performance and style this is surely the coolest wagon on the road. And it’s great for delivering presents in a hurry! "We have been able to secure limited numbers of this vehicle for Australia thanks to the phenomenal demand for the 300C – it is a huge hit with the public," he said.

The quickest 300C wagon offers the same 1602-litre maximum cargo volume as its donor vehicle, along with a "unique access rear liftgate, but adds a hi-po bodykit comprising aggressive front and rear bumpers.

There's also the familiar standard safety package including ESP stability control, ABS and a multi-stage airbag system.

Chrysler's 300C found 1723 new homes in the first 11 months of 2006 (to command a 32 per cent share of the sub-$100,000 upper large car segment), helping the Chrysler brand to a total of 3369 sales so far this year - up 56 per cent on 2005 figures.

The 300C SRT8 Touring joins the 300C SRT8 Sedan, the Chrysler Crossfire SRT6 and the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 in the Chrysler Group's SRT stable.
