The 2015 Chrysler Town & Country, on sale here at Perkins Motors in Colorado Springs, Colorado, is the epitome of what a family hauler should be. With plenty of room for up to seven people, innovative storage solutions, luxury accommodations, advanced safety features and segment-leading value, it’s no wonder the Chrysler Town & Country continues to be the best-selling minivan in America.
The top-selling minivan again in 2014, the Town & Country (MSRP $29,995) held approximately 25 percent of the overall minivan market (the Dodge Grand Caravan was second). The Town & Country was “Best Family Hauler” for the 10th year in a row in the Detroit News
“Reader’s Choice Awards,” and it was the “Highest Ranked Minivan in Initial Quality” two years in a row in the 2014 J.D. Power and Associates Initial Quality Study.
“After creating the segment in 1983, FCA US [Fiat Chrysler Automobiles] has more than 30 years of minivan leadership and nearly 80 minivan firsts, including class-exclusive Stow ‘n Go seating and segment-leading Blu-ray rear-seat entertainment system,” said Reid Bigland, head of U.S. sales. “We’ll continue to listen to our customers and innovate to remain the minivan segment leader.”
Chrysler never stops making the Town & Country better. Of the two new trim levels introduced for 2015, the Limited Platinum sits at the top of a Town & Country lineup that also includes LX, Touring, S, Touring-L and Limited versions. The $39,995 MSRP of the fully-loaded Limited Platinum is significantly less than the $44,600 MSRP of the Honda Odyssey Touring Elite and the $45,020 price of the Toyota Sienna Limited Premium.
The Town & Country already provides phenomenal value – its entry-level standard features include leather upholstery, Uconnect® Voice Command with Bluetooth, dual power-sliding side doors and a rear-seat DVD entertainment system with remote control and wireless headphones, items other brands charge big money for. With the Limited Platinum, drivers get even more luxury and convenience for less money.
Outside you’ll find bright door handles (in place of the body-colored handles on other trims), a sunroof, mini overhead consoles with two bins, automatic High Intensity Discharge headlamps with SmartBeam® technology, heated and power-folding exterior mirrors with integrated turn signals and driver-side auto-dimming, and painted 17-inch Satin Silver wheels. The Stow N Place® roof rack system can accommodate up to 150 pounds of cargo, and the rack folds down into the side rails when not needed to help reduce noise and improve aerodynamics.
An already well-equipped cabin is taken to the next level in the Limited Platinum, which features an award-winning Uconnect 430N® infotainment system with 6.5-inch color touch-screen, navigation, a 40GB hard drive, High Definition Multimedia Interface and a radio memory feature. The nine-speaker, AM/FM/SiriusXM/CD/DVD/MP3 audio system includes nine speakers with subwoofer, a 506-watt amplifier, regular and charge-only USB ports, and an auxiliary input jack. In addition to the one-year SiriusXM Satellite Radio subscription standard in every Town & Country, the Limited Platinum comes with five years of Sirius/XM Travel Link™. Rear-seat passengers enjoy a dual-screen Blu-ray/DVD entertainment system with second-row and third-row overhead nine-inch screens.
Nappa leather with suede inserts covers the seats, and both first- and second-row seats are heated. Driver and front passenger seats are eight-way power-adjustable, and the driver gets two-way power lumbar adjustments and memory for his or her preferred settings. Limited Platinum trims also feature a heated, leather-and-wood covered steering wheel, and the standard Stow ‘n Go® seating and storage system is enhanced by a one-touch power-folding third-row seat with power recline function. You can flip the third-row seat around to create Tailgate seating, and storage space tops out at 143.8 cubic feet.
The 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 in the Town & Country produces a segment-leading 283 hp and 260 lb/ft of torque. Variable Valve Timing, an “Econ” driving mode, and an efficient six-speed AutoStick® automatic transmission all help the Town & Country return an EPA-estimated 25 mpg highway. When properly equipped, the Town & Country can even tow up to 3,600 pounds, and its standard heavy-duty transmission oil cooler makes it even easier to exploit that capability.
The Town & Country Limited Platinum is also equipped with the SafetyTec™ package, which includes the automatic high-beam headlamps, rain-sensitive windshield wipers, ParkSense® Rear Park Assist, Tire Pressure Monitoring, and both Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Path Detection. In addition to the SafetyTec™ features, a ParkView Rear Backup Camera, remote start, and power adjustable pedals with memory are included, as are standard features like antilock brakes, Brake Assist, Electronic Stability Control, and All-speed Traction Control System.
