Review: 2013 Chrysler 300S Glacier Edition




Price: $35,345 ($40,335 as tested)

Engine: 3.6-liter V6

Transmission: 8-Speed Automatic

Power: 300hp and 260 lb-ft of Torque


In the United States, we have a wide range of climates from the frigid northeast, to the dry heat of the southwest. This country’s climate is incredibly diverse, making it hard for some automakers to produce sells in certain regions. This is why Chrysler created the 2013 300S Glacier Edition, an AWD version of the ever-popular 4-door sedan.

The Glacier Edition is offered in three colors: Billet Silver, Bright White, and Glacier Blue Pearl. However, the inside is only available in one color: black. This two-tone theme continues through the car, with its bright exterior being highlighted by darker accents, such as the 19-inch wheels with a dark finish.




Inside the 300S Glacier Edition is an incredibly roomy interior. Leg room up front and in the back is plenty, and there’s enough headroom for your freakishly tall friends. One of my favorite touches on the inside is the blue light accents that are placed throughout. While it may not sound like a lot, the luminescence of the blue light goes great with the black interior.

What makes the Glacier Edition special is the previously mentioned AWD system. This system provides much better handling when travelling on icy roads. The 300hp that is being sent to all four of the wheels is thanks to the 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine (the Hemi V-8 is an option).  Mated to this V-6 is an eight-speed automatic transmission that does wonders for this peppy little engine. One other mechanical upgrade that the 300S Glacier Edition does see is the inclusion of a cold-air intake.

If you happen to live in a northern state where ice roads are troublesome, the 2013 Chrysler 300S Glacier Edition may just be what you are looking for. The classy styling and incredible handling make for a great driving experience, inside and out.

SNL pokes fun at Eastwood’s moving Chrysler commercial

Clint East Halft Time Chrysler Ad

Chryslers emotionally driven Super Bowl commercial featuring Clint Eastwood surely outdid last year’s ad featuring rap-star Eminem. The 2012 ad went with a whole new approach for its two-minute run time, focusing not on what or who is hip or using an incredibly sexy model but rather a sentimental message. Chrysler decided to tug on our heartstrings like a puppet master and to persuade viewers through their emotions. I think its plan worked.

It has to be not only the highest viewed advertisement from the Super Bowl on YouTube right now, but also the most highly discussed. We are not going to give you a play-by-play description like everyone else, (instead, we will call our play-by-play description a synopsis—editor) however, here’s a synopsis of what went down in the commercial:

Eighty-one-year-old Clint Eastwood appears on screen, strolling in a dark tunnel with that cowboy attitude that we know and love. His timeless voice comes over and compares the game’s halftime to the halfway point of not only Chrysler’s but America’s hardships. He goes on to remind us that there is still another half to go, only our half is not a game, and, as we continue to recover from the 2008–2009 recession, we must remember how Chrysler was able to rise from its ashes.

His powerful and motivational message was heard as panoramic views of Chrysler, Jeep, and Dodge vehicles and workers at the factory in Motor City, Detroit, slide across the screen. Our favorite line of the commercial is, “we find a way through tough times, and if we can’t find a way, then we make one,” which demonstrates the persistence and strong motivation for which Americans are known.

Hader Eastwood Halftime Ad Look Alikes

The attention-grabbing commercial was a breath of fresh air among the multiple ads competing for the title of most ridiculous. It has the ring of a political ad, which may turn some off, but, coming from Clint Eastwood, it inspires.

In fact, Chrysler did get some heat for the political side of this ad from NBC’s Saturday Night Live crew, who poke fun at the confusion in the ad’s real intent. Bill Hader is the comedian that’s impersonating Clint Eastwood, and he does an awfully good job at it, even including the infamous mouth movements for which Eastwood is known.
