    1. Just FYI you don’t need to step up to the SHO for AWD. You can get it in the SE and Limited trims as well. 🙂

    2. I’ve driven all three while renting cars. first off I WISH THEY WOULD COME WITH GEAR SHIFT ON STEERING COLUMN AND NO CENTER CONSOLE so my legs would have more room.

      But of all the cars, the Chrysler 300 gives my poor sore legs a bit more room. BUT NONE of the cars are as comfortable to me as my old 1992 plymouth acclaim.

      Hard to believe that a 23 year old car that is considered on the cheaper side of driving is more comfortable than 3 luxury or pseudo luxury models.

      HEAR THAT CAR DESIGNERS?

    3. If we’re talking ice cream – it’s Carvel coconut custard (hard) classic for Me; but from a Roman-esk point of view, I too (overwhelmingly) choose strawberry ! As a side note, my least choice in ice cream flavors. The 300 of (my) choice would also be the AWD, but with the “Penta-3.6” ! Truthfully though, IF I were in the “mood” for a new CAR, I find the 3.6 200 so very appealing Inside & OUT too ! Only sat in one last week in my dealers showroom and felt “so at home” – weird huh ? But I am more in the mood for a new JEEP. Only regret is I just can not wait for the new Wranglers, so, I also sat in the showroom Cherokee TH (both of these were 2015’s) and it too made me feel “right at home” both as a passenger and driver !
      Before I wrap it up, NO I am not in the car business in any way – just youthful 60-something retired Navy guy looking for his (probably) last new vehicle. I want it to be a “capable-ish” Jeep that I can go back to Colorado and have one last fly fishing fest of a lifetime up their in . . . country !?

    4. Chevy needs to drop the XTS V-Sport underpinnings in the Impala. SS version anyone? I’d love to see something like that.

    5. He was wrong on many fronts, first the one he choose for awd with the hemi doesn’t exist, the 300 in awd is only available with the V6. The SHO (Taurus with Ecoboost) is in the same price range as the hemi 300 and the AWD SHO gets the same highway fuel economy as the Rear Wheel Drive Hemi 300 with the 8 speed auto and I am sure it does better in the snow than the RWD 300 V8. Also, as several others have pointed out, the Taurus is available in awd in the SEL and Limited Trims. If he just likes Chrysler better that is okay, he should just say “I am prejudice toward Chrysler and I am going to do what ever it takes to choose it, even if that means I have to create my own facts.” He is supposed to be an authority on cars and his errors were very obvious and simple, in fact most people I know would catch these mistakes. Are there any unbiased journalists that review vehicles anymore?
