When Roads Get Dicey: 2013 Chrysler 300 Glacier Edition

By Matthew Askari | September 07, 2012
Admittedly, it's a little dramatic to name an all weather edition—capable of handling cold and wet weather conditions—Glacier. But the 2013 Chrysler 300 Glacier is dramatic: large headlights; a Black Chrome grille; 19-inch wheels sporting all-weather kicks, a special Glacier Blue Pearl paint color in addition to the Bright White and Billet Silver Metallic; it's fair to say the 300 begs attention.
The Glacier edition will be available with a standard 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 that can churn out 300 horsepower or the beefier 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 that bumps the horsepower up to 363. Despite the big engines, the 300 delivers best-in-class fuel economy, with the base engine returning 18 mpg in the city and 27 on the highway. The Glacier Edition distributes power to all four wheels when needed, but the all-wheel drive deactivates the front axle for normal conditions, which helps save fuel. Inside, the all-weather 300 gets 12-way power driver and passenger sport seats with black cloth and leather bolsters. Some Piano Black accents add a refined flair to the center stack, and "Glacier" logos make an appearance throughout to keep the drama going. Chrysler says its new Beats by Dr. Dre sound system, which is featured in the separate 2013 Chrysler 300S, maximizes "how music genres from hip hop to Motown should sound and feel." They join the Chrysler 300, 300C, 300C Luxury Series, and the mighty 470-horsepower 300C SRT8. All versions of the 2013 Chrysler 300 will be on sale this fall.
