2013 Chrysler 300 Glacier First Look

by James Deaton on

The 2013 Chrysler 300 Glacier is available at dealerships now, with a MSRP of $36,845 (excluding $995 destination). The Glacier integrates the class of a 300 with performance features like all-wheel-drive, cold-air induction, a sport-tuned exhaust system and a 3.6L Pentastar V-6 engine or optional 5.7L HEMI V-8 engine with four-cylinder mode.

This is the Chrysler 300 version of the 2013 Dodge Charger AWD. Paint colors for this 300 include Bright White, Billet Silver Metallic and specific to this model, a Glacier Blue Pearl Coat.

Exterior accents include 19-inch Satin Chrome finish aluminum wheels in all-season performance tires, Gloss Black mirrors and headlamp bezels and Black Chrome grille blades. For a darker look, a Gloss Black painted roof is offered as an option.

The Glacier’s seating crosses the athletic with the luxurious, with the 12-way power driver and passenger sport seats, featuring black “Falls” cloth in the seat centers and leather-wrapped bolsters in black, finished with black, French-seamed stitching. Piano Black is used on the interior center stack, instrument panel, steering wheel, gauge cluster and door panel elements. Die-cast, steering-wheel mounted, paddle shifters with “sport mode” rest behind the black, leather-wrapped, thick-rimmed steering wheel. Matte carbon accents and black floor mats with black velour binding and embroidered “Glacier” logo are also standard.

The Chrysler 300 Glacier’s AWD system features an active transfer case and front-axle-disconnect system that transitions automatically between rear-wheel drive and AWD without any driver input to improve fuel economy and give the vehicle the performance and handling typical of rear-wheel-drive.

If hauling ass through snowy mountain roads doesn’t spark your interest, Chrysler has a 300 for other types of enthusiasts: Performance in the 300 SRT8, luxury in the  300C John Varvatos Luxury Edition (article here) and sound supremacy in the 300S with Beats Audio by Dre.
