While there are many options for those looking for the ultimate family hauler, there is one that stands out: the Chrysler Town & Country. This minivan features a 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine coupled with the AutoStick six-speed transmission, delivering Best-in-Class 283 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque with fuel economy ratings of 17 city / 25 highway mpg. It’s extremely refined engine features a compact, lightweight design with dual-overhead camshafts, high-flow intake and exhaust ports, Variable Valve Timing and Electronic Throttle Control with integrated speed control. The Chrysler Town & Country features a MacPherson strut front suspension and twist-beam rear axle with coil springs. It provides highly responsive handling and a very smooth ride with improved stability. And when you drive with a fully packed vehicle, the available load-leveling / height-control suspension adjusts the ride height, distributing the weight of passengers and cargo evenly for optimum control to help give you a safe, secure and more comfortable ride.
The cabin is a big deal for anyone who is in search of the perfect family vehicle. For those that have busy lives that are constantly on the go, having a minivan that will fit their lifestyle is key. We recently swung by Arrigo DCJ, a South Florida car dealer, to check out the inside of a 2013 Town & Country model. Seats are a big deal in a minivan, and there is one feature that the Town & Country offers – Stow ‘n Go Seats. We can see why these would be the deal breaker in selecting a minivan. The one-touch fold and tumble second- and third-row seats fold into floor bins individually — so you can go from seven seats to two, or any combination in between. When the seats are in the upright position, in-floor bins give you best-in-class concealed storage space. Furthermore, the third-row seat has a class-exclusive tailgate feature, for added convenience.
Diffused LED lighting fills the interior, casting a soft sapphire blue glow and creating a sophisticated interior environment. Clear, bright LED pinpoint reading lamps above all three rows can be positioned individually by each passenger, and since they provide such highly directed light, they can illuminate each passenger seating area without causing windshield glare for the driver. To keep the kids occupied on long road trips the Chrysler Town & Country offers second- and third-row 9-inch drop-down DVD screens with the available rear-seat dual DVD entertainment system. And with two DVD players, complete with a power outlet and A/V jacks for your home gaming system, the kids don’t even have to agree. One look at the interior of this minivan you know it is built with for the busy family, so if you are in the market for a minivan, the 2013 Town & Country should not be overlooked.
