A 283-horsepower V6 operates through a six-speed automatic transmission.
Despite still dealing with the post-party hangover after its impressive 30th birthday bash, Chrysler has done plenty with its Town & Country minivan in the year since. Town & Country and the related Dodge Grand Caravan stable mate remain at the top of their game, despite numerous attempts to knock them off their perches. As a luxury-oriented minivan – whereas the Grand Caravan is built for more mainstream buyers — the T&C arrives with significantly more base content, although with six available trim levels you can certainly add what you want or need. A power liftgate, tri-zone air conditioning (left front/right front and rear), leather seats (power-adjustable in front) and a rearview camera are just a few of the inclusions, while blind-spot monitoring, heated front and second-row seats (bench or captain’s chairs), power-folding third-row bench and second- and third-row video screens are just a sampling of the items that can transform the T&C into a top-class limo. For transforming the minivan for maximum cargo duty, the standard Stow ‘n Go second- and third-row seats can be quickly and easily folded below the load floor. However, leave them fully or partially in place and you have plenty of out-of-sight stowage for your valuables below the floor. Along with traveling in grand style, T&C shoppers will appreciate the scoot in the minivan’s step with the 283-horsepower 3.6-liter V6 and accompanying six-speed automatic transmission. Chrysler still gets a version of its Dodge “Man Van” sibling that uses the S badge, just like the 200 and 300 sedans. The S gets darker and meaner exterior trim and plenty of interior toys as well as sportier suspension tuning to back up the attitude. The new-for-2015 Limited Platinum model quite literally has every option available including the video screens, heated steering wheel, the full suite of active safety features and 17-inch wheels.
