Fiat Chrysler will continue selling the Chrysler 300 and 300 SRT in Australia despite sluggish initial sales of the full-size sedan.
FCA Australia boss Steve Zanlunghi confirmed to Drive.com.au that the automaker will push forward with sales of the 300 in Australia, as he sees opportunity for the full-size sedan to take on interest from orphaned Holden Commodore and Ford Falcon owners – both of which are to be discontinued.
The 485 horsepower 6.4-liter HEMI V8 powered 300 SRT was axed in America, however it lives on in Australia, which isn’t fortunate enough to receive the Dodge Charger and its performance equivalents, nor the Dodge Challenger. Aussie muscle car enthusiasts (and there are many) have been clamoring for both of the Dodge products to be sent their way, but RHD versions won’t be considered until the next-generation model released.
For now, Aussie Mopar fans will have to live with the Chrysler SRT or keep an eye out for right-hand drive conversions of the Challenger Hellcat.
