11 Best Cars For Baby Boomers

3. Full Size Car–Chrysler 300
Starting price: $31,990
Fuel-economy rating (EPA city/highway combined): 17-23 mpg

Wrapped in stately exterior styling and featuring a comfortable and handsomely cast interior, the Chrysler 300 delivers ample style and substance. It offers a choice of V-6 (3.6-liter with 300-horsepower) or V-8 (5.7-liter with 363 horsepower) engines, with the top 300 SRT model cast in the role of modern-day muscle car with a 6.4-liter V-8 under its long hood that pumps out an energetic 470 horsepower. Its rear-drive architecture affords refined ride and handling abilities, with all-wheel-drive optional in all models but the SRT for added surefootedness on wet or snowy roads. With a “Beats by D. Dre” premium audio system available, the car’s touchscreen-based multimedia control system is one of the easiest such arrays to operate in the auto business.
