The 2014 Chrysler 300 SRT8 was the last year of production for this trim of Chrysler's flagship sedan. SRT8 sedans were available in a performance-focused SRT8 Core version and the more luxurious and expensive 300 SRT8. While both versions featured a three-way adjustable sport suspension, Brembo brakes and the same V-8 engine, the SRT8 Core was essentially a base Chrysler 300 in terms of its interior and comfort features. In contrast, heated rear seats, leather upholstery, and the majority of the other luxury features included with the premium 300C trim were included on the SRT8 as well. While Chrysler upgraded both versions of the SRT8 with 20-inch wheels over the base 17-inch wheels of the 300, SRT8 Core cars also had a different wheel design from SRT8 vehicles.
