2013 Chrysler 300 SRT8

The Chrysler 300 is great, and the  SRT version is even better. Although the 300 is essentially a Dodge Charger with  different sheetmetal, the more elegant exterior design makes it appealing to a  larger audience than the ostentatious Charger. Adding a 6.4-liter Hemi V-8 and  subtle design changes makes the car even more appealing to me. There’s still not  enough refinement in the 300 package to seriously challenge the German  juggernauts (despite the platform descending from the E-class during the  DaimlerChrysler era), but you can get a very fast, very spacious car for  $50k.I wouldn’t rush out and buy a 2013 300  SRT8, though. Jeep just introduced the 2014 Grand Cherokee SRT and it benefits  from an eight-speed automatic  transmission.  The 300 will certainly get the eight-speed within a few months, so a wise  shopper would hold off until that happens. The eight-speed gearbox won’t  magically make the SRT8 a fuel sipper, but every mpg makes a difference when  you’re feeding 6.4 liters of fury.
