2007 Chrysler Town & Country Review

By

Chrysler's Town & Country is the pinnacle of the company's minivan fleet. Designed to serve the needs of well-to-do families, the Town & Country is outfitted with the latest electronic features and conveniences, such as a rear-seat DVD player and power-operated doors. Thanks to its handsome exterior and well-established nameplate, the Town & Country is one of the few minivans that can be driven to the country club and not generate muffled laughter from the parking valets. Regrettably, although Chrysler invented the minivan segment, it no longer dominates the field. Minivans from Honda, Toyota, Nissan and Hyundai now rival, or best, the Town & Country in size, power and features, although none have yet copied Chrysler's innovative Stow `n Go second-row seating.

You'll Like This Car If...

If you appreciate the touches of a premium sedan, but need the ability to haul half a soccer team to the park and then pick up a stack of two-by-fours on your way home, the Chrysler Town & Country offers a uniquely attractive package with two rows of disappearing seats.

You May Not Like This Car If...

If parallel parking isn't one of your strong suits, you might find yourself in some awkward positions while behind the wheel of a long-wheelbase Town & Country. Side windows that can pop open only slightly to vent fresh air can make for a claustrophobic interior.

What's Significant About This Car?

No major changes for 2007.

Driving the Town & Country

Driving Impressions We drove a Town & Country with the more powerful 3.8-liter engine and were impressed by how well it worked with the four-speed automatic transmission to move the big, heavy...

minivan—even hill climbs and freeway merges were accomplished without noticeable exertion. Out on the highway, the Town & Country rides smoothly and quietly. We were also surprised at how agile the tall, multi-ton vehicle was around town and in parking lots, and braking was sure and smooth.

Stow 'n Go Seating
A feature unique to Chrysler minivans, both rear rows in the long-wheelbase models fold flat into the floor. And when the seats are upright, the underfloor bins can be used as additional storage spaces.

Overhead Rail System
Long-wheelbase Town & Country minivans feature a convenient rail-mounted overhead storage system.

2007 Chrysler Town & Country Details
Interior

The Chrysler Town & Country was introduced in 1992 as the first premium minivan. Now in its 15th model year, the high-end Limited Edition remains the most luxurious minivan on the road. The vehicle is roomy, with the available heated leather front seats being among the most comfortable in the segment. The second-row Stow 'n Go seats can be a little narrow for some, because they are designed to disappear into the floor, and are therefore smaller than more conventional seats.

Exterior
2007 Chrysler Town & Country photo

As minivans go, we think the Town & Country is among the most attractive on the market, especially when fitted with the bigger 16-inch wheels. While minivans don't offer the most exciting bodystyles on the market, the Town & Country looks contemporary without odd-ball space-age touches, and it makes no attempt to look like a Sport Utility Vehicle.

Notable Equipment
Standard Equipment

The base Town & Country comes with a 3.3-liter V6 and four-speed automatic transmission, plus features like removable (not fold-away) second- and third-row seats, CD sound system and air conditioning.

Optional Equipment

Features available only on select trim levels or as stand-alone options include the 3.8-liter V6, rear-seat DVD entertainment system, navigation, Infinity six-speaker sound system, in-dash six-disc CD changer, parking distance sensors, leather interior, sunroof, power-adjustable pedals, side-curtain airbags, SIRIUS Satellite Radio, automatic temperature control, Stow 'n Go fold-away second- and third-row seating and an overhead rail storage system.

Under the Hood

The base 3.3-liter V6 produces 170 horsepower, while the 3.8-liter makes 200 horsepower. Each powerplant is mated to the same four-speed automatic transmission driving the front wheels. The all-wheel-drive option has been dropped to accommodate the Stow 'n Go seating option. Chrysler has appropriately placed the less-powerful 3.3-liter V6 in the short wheelbase models, while equipping the long-wheelbase vans with the torquey 3.8-liter V6.

3.3-liter V6
170 horsepower @ 5000 rpm
200 lb.-ft. of torque @ 4000 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 19/26

3.8-liter V6
200 horsepower @ 5000 rpm
235 lb.-ft. of torque @ 4000 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 18/25

"This van has been modified to be wheelchair accessible. It is convenient to use but, when compared with Honda or Toyoto vans, seems out-dated. Ride is OK but potholes are much too noticeable. Road noise and body shakes/squeaks also too obvious. Driver's seat is very comfortable in ordinary use but becomes uncomfortable on long drives."
