Important: Frontal crash test ratings can be compared only among vehicles of similar weight.
Good Acceptable Marginal Poor
The Chrysler 300 was introduced in the 2005 model year, and the Dodge Charger was introduced in the 2006 model year.
The frontal offset crash test ratings also apply to the station wagon version of the 300 and Charger: 2005-2008 models of the Dodge Magnum (discontinued after the 2008 model year).
Restraints/dummy kinematics — Dummy movement was well controlled. After the dummy moved forward into the airbag, it rebounded into the seat without its head coming close to any stiff structure that could cause injury.
Injury measures — Measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of any significant injuries in a crash of this severity.
Left to right:
- Action shot taken during the frontal offset crash test.
- The dummy's position in relation to the steering wheel and instrument panel after the crash test indicates that the driver's survival space was maintained well.
- Dummy movement was well controlled. During rebound, the dummy's head hit only the head restraint.
- Intrusion into the driver's space was minimal, and all leg and foot injury measures were low.
- Side airbags: front and rear head curtain airbags (standard in 2010 models, optional in 2005-09 models, along with front seat-mounted torso airbags in 2008-09 models only)
- Electronic stability control (optional)
- Antilock brakes (optional)
- Daytime running lights (optional on vehicles sold to fleets)
