Maybe it’s the standard luxury features, or the class-exclusive seating and storage systems, or even the price tag that’s thousands less than Honda and Toyota; no matter the reasons, the 2012 Chrysler Town & Country is America’s best-selling minivan and also the most awarded.
You don’t get to be either of those things without a serious commitment to innovation and excellence, and the 2012 iteration of the immensely popular Town & Country (starting MSRP $29,995) delivers both. Adding standard leather-trimmed seats and a rear-seat DVD entertainment system to class-leading features like the adaptable Stow ’n
seating system, standard rear back-up camera and, yes, an award-winning 283-hp Pentastar V6 engine, this year’s Town & Country has taken home some prestigious and industry-coveted hardware. Fortunately, its spacious cabin has plenty of room for more.
It’s an exceptional commitment to quality, craftsmanship and versatility that’s made the 2012 Town & Country so beloved by its drivers, and earned it the well-deserved designation of “Highest Ranked Minivan” in initial quality from J.D. Power and Associates, after a thorough survey of new Town & Country owners. The love hardly stops there, as the Town & Country also took home its 11th consecutive Polk Automotive Loyalty Award, an honor given to vehicles with the highest number of repeat buyers. When Town & Country owners are in the market for a new minivan, they tend to stick with Chrysler over any other minivan.
While it can be argued that the most meaningful awards are the ones that come from loyal and satisfied customers, the 2012 Town & Country has earned a few accolades from industry insiders, too. In fact, after an exhaustive comparison testing the minivan segment’s biggest names over 18 categories, the Town & Country was named one of Consumer Guide’s “Best Buys,” meaning it’s the best choice for consumers looking for the optimal balance of features and price.
The newest Town & Country also earned top honors from the independent Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), earning the designation of 2012 IIHS “Top Safety Pick” thanks to an impressive allotment of advanced active and passive safety and occupant protection measures. A high-strength, reinforced safety cage, active head restraints and advanced, multi-stage front, side, knee and full-length side-curtain airbags are merely the tip of this minivan’s iceberg. The new Town & Country also offers the available SafetyTec™ Package, an integration of 42 innovative safety features like a Blind-Spot Monitoring System, SmartBeam® intelligent headlamps and the ParkSense® Rear Park Assist feature with Rear Cross Path Detection.
Truth be told, drivers and independent evaluators trust the 2012 Chrysler Town & Country more than any other minivan because more care, thought and innovation went into building it. With a trophy case full of awards for outstanding value, quality, safety and customer loyalty, there’s little question as to why America’s most honored minivan is also its best selling.
