The 2015 Chrysler 300 SRT8 will be, for the first time, based on a new platform. The previous model was still based on the old 300C but with a redesigned interior and exterior. The 2015 model will be a complete redesign. It will borrow the engines of Maserati Ghibli with a special, 5.2 liter monster for the SRT version.

2015 Chrysler 300 SRT8 – Engine and Mechanics
So, what can we expect? Well, the 2015 Chrysler 300 SRT8 engine will most likely be a 6.2 liter supercharged V8 unit that will have somewhere around 600 horsepower. It will also feature a 6 speed automatic transmission. The numbers aren’t yet official but, most likely the car will get around 500 lb-ft of torque. The chassis and suspension. This is probably where the car improved the most. It will be based on the Maserati Ghibli platform but with modified suspension and gearbox. Sure, you will get the Maserati’s engines in the lower end 300C but for the SRT8 you will get the Hellcat V8.
Also, thanks to tuned and adaptive suspension, the ride will be better than in the Maserati and thanks to improved gearbox, the car is now better suited for the US roads. Performance wise, the car will be a beast. It is expected to sprint from 0 to 60 MPH in under 4.5 seconds (and thanks to a better launch control, you won’t be needing to change the clutch once every couple of launches). The top speed hasn’t been announced yet but we can expect a car that will go over 275 MPH (unlimited, of course), thanks to its beefy engine. As far as fuel economy goes, we should say that is good. For a car with this type of engine and the speed it can provide, 23 MPG on the highway and around 16 while in the city is just fine. Considering the fact that it will outrun most sports cars out there, these numbers are great!
Interior and Exterior of 2015 Chrysler 300 SRT8

Also, the sound system will be better than on the previous generation, featuring better speakers and subwoofer.
