2022 Chrysler 300 Steering Wheel-Mounted Paddle Shifter and Rotary E-Shifter

Nov 28,2022

The 2022 Chrysler 300 will comprise a new steering wheel-mounted paddle and rotary e-shifters feature. The new feature is designed to give drivers more control over their driving experience, allowing them to change gears manually in both automatic and manual transmission models. The new steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters let drivers change gears with their thumbs while keeping their hands on the wheel. This is especially useful when driving in traffic or on winding roads where you need to downshift quickly without taking your eyes off the road for too long. The rotary e-shift allows drivers to select gears manually by turning a knob on the center console instead of using a traditional shift lever — similar systems have been available from other automakers for years now, but this is still a pretty cool feature for those who prefer manual transmissions over automatics. The steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters feature multiple driving modes. Drivers can customize the buttons, setting them to anything they prefer, including calling their favorite radio station or turning off the air conditioning or heat while driving. The e-shift rotary knob is located below the shifter and can be used to swap gears to change the traction settings if you want more power out of your engine when driving on slick roads or off-roading.
