The Chrysler 300 vs. Cadillac ATS in Edmonton, AB
Amongst a wide market of mid-size luxury vehicles, few of them can be considered a ‘smart’ purchase. With much of today’s luxury vehicles focusing more on exuberance and excess than practicality and value, it was only a matter of time until the Chrysler 300 ascended as the best choice in its segment. See how the Chrysler 300 compares to another luxury vehicle, like the Cadillac ATS, here at Southtown Chrysler—your south Edmonton Chrysler dealer.
Despite their exquisite exteriors, there’s a lot of power lying underneath each of these luxury sedans. How much power, you ask? While the 3.6L V6 engine inside the Cadillac ATS brings an impressive 335 horsepower and 285 lb-ft of torque to the table, the Chrysler 300 brings more and takes it to another level. How so? You have the option to add the 5.7L HEMI V8 engine to the 300, giving you up to 363 horsepower and an even more impressive 394 lb-ft of torque.
While both vehicles exude luxury throughout their exterior, the Chrysler 300 has the added bonus of incorporating more practicality in its design as well. Both vehicles share a lot of similarities, including their HID headlights, leather seats, and dual exhausts. However, the 300 comes standard as a four-door sedan while the ATS only comes as a coupe, giving you and your passengers more ease of entrance.
Probably the biggest strength of the Chrysler 300 is that it’s the better value between the two vehicles. While Cadillac prides itself on being a luxury brand, Chrysler fine-tunes these premium characteristics to a more reasonable price. At just $2,000 less than the Cadillac ATS, you get a more powerful engine, many of the same luxury amenities, as well as a more practical sedan-style design.
If you’re in the market for a luxury vehicle, it doesn’t mean that it has to cost you an arm-and-a-leg to get it. The Chrysler 300 is the perfect example of attainable luxury, giving you much of the Cadillac ATS’s premium amenities at a lower cost and for a better value—it also doesn’t hurt that the Chrysler 300 gives you a 5.7L HEMI engine included with its $50,000 price tag.
