2007 Chrysler 300C CRD

If you are in France you could have a 300CRD (common-rail diesel) with a Mercedes-Benz a 215-hp, turbocharged and intercooled, 3.0-liter diesel V-6. With 376 lb-ft of torque, just 11 lb-ft less than the 5.7-liter Hemi V-8, this engine propels the 300 to 62 mph in 7.6 seconds, only 1.2 seconds slower than the Hemi. And it returns an average of 29 mpg when cruising at 80 mph. Unfortunately, the 300C CRD isn't offered in America. The diesel's abundant torque, available from idle, means that the car always feels lively. The 300C CRD's top speed is 141 mph-WOW !
