Chrysler, the luxury carmaker, has done it again. It’s built something that fits right in with its upscale reputation of building luxury vehicles, but it’s just…more. The new Town and Country minivan is incredible, or should we say, impeccable? This minivan has everything you could possibly want in a minivan, plus the luxurious feel and ride of the best of what it means to be a Chrysler.
The features that are offered in this famous people mover are plentiful and very nice. There’s a DVD entertainment system – in the rear seat area, which is so necessary in a minivan that Chrysler figured it should simply be part of the production process. The Town and Country also has big wheels, (17-inchers), power sliding doors, (thank goodness), a conversation mirror, (why didn’t someone think of this before?), Stow & Go seats, (We love ‘em), and rear-view camera for extra safety. There’s even Bluetooth capability with voice command feature, satellite radio, six powerful speakers and a great DVD/Blu-ray system. This minivan also offers high capacity music storage, a six-inch touchscreen and a USB/iPod interface.

The Town and Country is built for safety too. Load-leveling suspension keeps the van stable and balanced while the trailer sway control, blind spot monitoring and cross-path detection make sure you get home without a dent. Stability control and antilock brakes keep the minivan steady and on track and the IIHS, Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, awarded the Town and Country high marks for crash tests and roof strength and side-impact tests. It just doesn’t get any better than this.
Chrysler made sure to focus on comfort and convenience features as well as safety in this very popular minivan. They also put some attention to design and the way the Town and Country handles. The Stow & Go second row seats are a wonder to behold. They fold flush into the floor with one touch and they stay out of the way to make more storage room and provide a bit more comfort for your passengers. The third row seats fold flush also and can be turned around to add extra seating for your tailgate parties.
Driving the Town and Country is a very pleasant experience. The ride is smooth, quiet and convenient. It’s almost a feeling of gliding on air, as if you are actually flying a silent glider in a peaceful sky. The overall impression of the Town and Country is that of a limousine, Chrysler, of course), gently taking you anyplace you want to go with no questions asked.
