The Chrysler 300 has held an impressively long lifespan, but that just wasn't enough to stop the grim reaper from dragging the brand's legendary sedan to its grave. Production at Ontario's Brampton Assembly Plant has officially been brought to an end, with the final 300C––the sedan's limited-production, Hemi-powered sendoff––rolling off the line in a menacing shade of Velvet Red.


The current 300 made its debut all the way back in 2011, which means the sedan will have lived for nearly a whopping 12 years. Up until now, the sedan was among the oldest vehicles that was available new. In total, the nameplate lasted for nearly 70 years.




The sedan's well-deserved swan song debuted last year in the form of the V8-powered 300C that has marked the badge's retirement today. Reserved for the 2023 model year only, this special edition featured a 6.4 liter Hemi V8 under the hood, and production was capped at just 2,200 units for the U.S. and Canada. It's far too late to snatch one up, as all build slots were spoken for within 12 hours of the 300C's unveiling in September 2022.


"Chrysler brand is proud to mark the legacy of the Chrysler 300C as a true automotive icon, one of the original muscle cars representing bold American luxury," said Chrysler CEO Christine Feuell. "As we celebrate the last HEMI-powered 300C off the line with our Brampton team members, we’re also excited to work together as Chrysler brand moves forward to a sustainable all-electric future as part of the Stellantis Dare Forward 2030 strategic plan."



The demise of the 300C is one of the final nails in the coffin for the unforgettable Hemi V8 engine, which will officially be put to rest with the death of the Dodge Charger and Challenger later this month. After that, both brands will pivot to electrification, with battery-powered successors for both the 300 and the Dodge Charger planned in the near future. The Dodge is due in late 2024 with a V6-powered companion, though Chrysler's electric sedan won't arrive until much later.
