2015 Chrysler Town & Country Expert Review

By

KBB Expert Rating: 6.8

A minivan's mission is to shuttle families and their stuff, and if it can accomplish that while providing reasonable comfort and amenities for their precious passengers, all the better. Just as it has for decades, the 2015 Chrysler Town & Country fulfills that main objective while going one better with its emphasis on sophistication. With standard features like leather seating, power-operated doors and available amenities that include Blu-ray video entertainment and a heated steering wheel, the Chrysler Town & Country remains the quintessential luxury minivan. Not surprisingly, the Town & Country's extras come at a cost. At roughly $31,000, the Chrysler minivan's starting price is slightly higher than that of the Honda Odyssey and far beyond that of its plainer cousin, the Dodge Grand Caravan.

You'll Like This Car If...

If you want the easy passenger loading and interior roominess that are inherent in a minivan along with plenty of creature comforts that will make trips more enjoyable for Mom, Dad and the kids, there's a lot to like about the 2015 Town & Country minivan.

You May Not Like This Car If...

If low pricing is more important than high-class accommodations, check out the Dodge Grand Caravan or Kia Sedona, which can also accommodate up to eight passengers vs. the Town & Country's seven. Need an all-wheel-drive minivan? You'll find only one in the Toyota Sienna.

2015 Chrysler Town & Country Low/wide front photo What's New for 2015

Two additional trims join the Town & Country lineup, which now spans six models. A new base version arrives in the form of the LX that starts just under $31,000 (including destination charge), while a new top-line model comes in the form of the Limited Platinum that is loaded with goodies.

Driving Impressions It's been a few years since the Town & Country was revamped, but this premium minivan's road demeanor holds up well. The suspension is especially notable and combined with the...

... 7-passenger minivan's precise steering and minimal body roll, translates to a comfortable ride. The sole engine choice, Chrysler's lauded 3.6-liter Pentastar V6, has power in reserve and can easily move a fully loaded model. The Town & Country's engine and 6-speed automatic transmission work fairly seamlessly, never feeling overburdened or indecisive, and the dash-mounted gear selector is easy to master. Chrysler's minivan is quiet enough to make conversation easy across all three rows. Among this 7-passenger minivan's few faults are a touch-screen audio system that requires quite a reach and a somewhat-wide turning radius that makes the Town & Country feel less nimble in parking lots, especially when compared to the Honda Odyssey and Toyota Sienna.

REAR-SEAT ENTERTAINMENT
Every 2015 Chrysler Town & Country comes ready to keep kids entertained. Even lower trims include a 9-inch high-resolution video screen over the second row, a DVD console, USB charging ports and wireless headphones. Higher trims include an additional screen above the third row and a Blu-ray disc player.

SAFETY FEATURES
No cargo is more precious than people, a fact that makes safety features vital in a family vehicle such as the Town & Country. Among them are blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-path detection and rear park assist, all bundled into the SafetyTec group that's standard on higher trims and available on lower ones.

The 2015 Chrysler Town & Country minivan has seating for seven across three rows. The second row consists of two captain's chairs and the third row is a 3-passenger bench. Both rear rows feature Chrysler's ingenious Stow 'n Go system that enables the seats to fold into the floor to create a flat cargo area. The 3rd-row seats can be flipped outward when the car is parked for tailgating. Premium touches include soft-touch trim, chrome-trimmed instrumentation and standard leather on the first two rows. The top-line version includes power-adjustable pedals to enable drivers of various heights to find a better fit.

Believe it or not, minivans have taken on somewhat polarizing designs, but you won't find much controversy in the Town & Country. So while the Honda Odyssey stands out with its "lightning-bolt" window treatment and the Nissan Quest reminds some of a rolling brick, Chrysler's minivan is classically conservative. The Town & Country instead features rounded lines and wide panels of glass. Some flash is granted thanks to chrome bodyside molding on all but the base model, as well as brightwork on the grille (black chrome on S versions). Power-operated sliding side doors allow easy access, and a power liftgate is a real arm-saver.

Notable Equipment
Standard Equipment

The 2015 Town & Country family van spans six trim levels, including the new LX base model and top-line Platinum version. Even if you spend the least on an LX, you'll get power-operated side and rear doors, leather-trimmed 1st- and 2nd-row seats, AM/FM/CD/hard-drive entertainment system with 6.5-inch touch screen, Bluetooth wireless communication, tri-zone air conditioning and rearview camera. In addition to an entertainment screen above the second row, all Town & Country minivans include an HDMI port that allows you to plug in devices like game systems and tablets. All models include a 5-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty and roadside assistance of the same duration.

Optional Equipment

Options and extra features for the 2015 Town & Country vary by trim, with some, such as navigation, standard on the top model and optional in lower trims. Other upgrades include power sunroof, Wi-Fi hot-spot Internet access, upgraded rear-seat entertainment system with 3rd-row screen and Blu-ray player, heated 1st- and 2nd-row seats and high-intensity-discharge (HID) headlights. Power-folding 3rd-row seats are also available in top-trim versions of Chrysler's minivan, as is a heated steering wheel. Safety upgrades include blind-spot monitoring system and the ParkSense rear park-assist system.

Under the Hood
2015 Chrysler Town & Country Engine photo

All models of the 2015 Town & Country are front-wheel drive and use a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission. The Pentastar is easily Chrysler's most enjoyable V6 to date and with 283 horsepower it leads the class. When equipped with the Trailer-tow Prep Package, Chrysler's minivan can pull up to 3,600 pounds. In addition to accepting regular unleaded gasoline, the Town & Country's engine is Flex Fuel-compatible, meaning it can run on a combination of gasoline and E85 ethanol.

3.6-liter V6
283 horsepower @ 6,400 rpm
260 lb-ft of torque @ 4,400 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 17/25 mpg (gasoline), 12/18 mpg (E85)

With its new LX base model, the 2015 Chrysler Town & Country has a slightly lower entry cost that begins with a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) under $31,000. On the other end, a loaded Limited Platinum model can pass the $43,000 mark. The Town & Country's entry price is still higher than rivals, and roughly $9,000 beyond that of its Dodge cousin, the Grand Caravan. In higher forms, though, the Chrysler's price is more in line with upscale versions from Honda, Toyota and Nissan, which can also pass the $40,000 figure. Lower-priced (and smaller) alternatives include the Ford Transit Connect and Mazda5, both of which start in the low $20,000 range. Before buying, check the KBB.com Fair Purchase Price to see what others in your area are paying for their new Town & Country. The Chrysler minivan's resale value is expected to be average, lagging the Toyota Sienna and Honda Odyssey.

"Antiquated design.- Resale value is noteworthy by it's amazing rate of decline.- Chrysler has had ample time to get the wrinkles out of the T&C after 8 model years.- I really like the dual piston front brake calipers, the 3.6 liter V6 and, surprisingly, the 6 speed transmission with it's ECO mode.- Fuel economy is acceptable.- Although it is dead reliable and user friendly in an old sort of way, it is not very likable. It gives me less emotional satisfaction than my Samsung washer.- I rarely experience buyer's remorse but I profoundly wish I had this car purchasing decision back! To recoup my investment, I am going to have to drive this vehicle "...until the twelfth of never. And that's a long, long time"."

not bad until reaching 60000 mile

"one sliding door becomes weird: works good in cold weather but not in warm weather. Original battery died several times around 60000 mile. replaced a new one. and battery becomes a headache after about one month, died many times without reason. Dealer said there r 3 small lights in trunk not off, but these lights r automatically off. now I pay attention to turning off all lights, still died 3 times. will see dealer again."

"I bought this car when it had 6500 miles as a demo. It is the most comfortable vehicle I have ever sat in and it rides and drives like a dream. I have owned it for 4 months and 2000 miles and still and probably always will love every second I am in it."
