7. Chrysler 300C SRT-8 Wagon
The Chrysler 300 C is probably the last true boxy-looking American sedan with big V8 power and a chrome grille. But, it is a successful model that has been on the market for almost 15 years. During that time, Chrysler produced numerous variants and versions, but one especially interesting model is the mighty SRT-8 Touring. A competitor to the BMW M5 or Mercedes E-Class AMG, the 300C Touring was the performance station wagon version of the 300C sedan. With a 6.1-liter V8 Hemi engine pumping out 425 HP and a glorious soundtrack coming from the twin tailpipes, the SRT-8 was a fast and capable long roof. The 0 to 60 mph sprint took around 4.9 seconds and its top speed was over 170 mph.
Unfortunately for Chrysler, the recession that shocked the car industry in 2010 killed the SRT-8 Touring and lots of other performance models. But fortunately, an SRT-8 costs approximately $10,000 today, which is a steal. Not only you will get a classic American muscle wagon with all modern luxury features, but you’ll also get timeless styling. Plus it has the legendary Hemi V8 and 425 galloping horses to power it. Moreover, if you don’t like Chrysler’s design, you can always opt for the Dodge Magnum SRT8. It is basically the same car but with a Dodge front end.
