AUTHOR’S PICK: Why the Chrysler 300 Is the Best Car – Lexington, KY

What was your first dream car?

It’s a common question. Some of the answers are obvious, though. People either want a Ferrari, a Corvette, Lamborghini or anything in between. I’ve never wanted one of those. I wanted to be unique and pick a car that not many people would expect.

My dream car? A Chrysler 300. Wait, what?

That’s right. Of all the cars out there, the one I’d want more than any other is an all-black, or dark blue, Chrysler 300. I’ve always been a fan of Chrysler. The Sebring and Crossfire are very underrated models and should be appreciated more often.

But I’ll never forget my first encounter with a Chrysler 300. It was actually in 2005, when I was 13 years old. That’s three years way before the legal driving age. I was at a car dealership with my mom and decided to look around. I got towards the front of the building and saw the most beautiful specimen I’ve ever seen on four wheels.

It was an all black, brand new 2005 model that looked like the perfect combination of comfort and luxury. Almost 10 years to that day, the Chrysler 300 is still that perfect blend of enjoyment and luxury. Everywhere I go, I see a Chrysler 300 roaming the streets and thinking to myself, “Dang it, everyone has the same idea as me while I drive in my worn-out 2007 Ford Focus.”

But that’s the best part about the Chrysler 300: Everyone wants one. That may sound like a terrible way to put it, but there are plenty of people driving a Chrysler 300, of any year, and want to feel that sense of luxury and entitlement. Given all of that, the car keeps getting better. The brand new 2015 Chrysler 300 sedan is out of this world and the Chrysler 300 features are even better.

Not many luxury cars carry a 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine that provides 31 miles per gallon on the highway. The new Chrysler 300 also comes with Beats Audio, which, really, you can never go wrong with that. The interior has a limousine-type feel with leather seats and enough leg room to make your drive enjoyable. I took one for a test drive last year for the first time, and I fell in love with how smooth the ride was.

I was in my dream car for 10 minutes, and it was awesome. And with so many having been on the road, it’s becoming one of the more popular American cars, as well as popular models in the United States. This may be your next step in getting a new car. Maybe the Chrysler 300 is for you.

If that’s the case, then head on over to your friendly Lexington area Chrysler dealership. There are only so many ways I can describe why the Chrysler 300 is the best car out there, but maybe you should find out for yourself at Glenn’s Freedom Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
