Trying to find a large sedan that is both fuel-efficient and powerful can be a tough task. While some automakers are striving to find a good mixture of both, relatively few are getting it right. One of the automakers who is nailing this balance is Chrysler. The Chrysler 300 features some serious high-tech gadgetry that makes its engines powerful while keeping them from sipping on too much gas.

The optional 5.7-L V8 engine utilizes Fuel Saver Technology. This feature will shut down four cylinders when it detects that they are not needed. This helps save on fuel while cruising along on the highway. This engine comes standard on the line-topping 300C but is available on the Limited trim.

Paired with the 5.7-L is Chrysler's TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission. This transmission is known for its contributions to better gas mileage for Chrysler vehicles and also cuts back on CO2 emissions. This powertrain isn't just powerful - it is practical to boot.
