To celebrate 30 years of making minivans (starting with the Dodge Caravan and Plymouth Voyager), Chrysler Group is introducing anniversary editions with special badging and features like Alcantara suede accents.
For 2013, the Town & Country now offers a new Blu-Ray disc player with an HDMI port for game consoles, trailer-sway control and a pair of rear-seat USB ports for charging mobile devices.
Thirty years ago the Chrysler Group created the modern minivan, and five years later it introduced the first luxury one – the Town & Country. Fast-forward to today and the Town & Country retains its mission of being a minivan with maximum amenities. Chrysler's 7-passenger hauler carries a higher base price than competitors such as the Honda Odyssey, Toyota Sienna and Nissan Quest, but when considering that it comes with niceties like leather seating and a DVD entertainment system to keep the kids occupied, its cost make more sense. Practical and safety features also abound to ease the burden on Mom and Dad, such as Stow `n Go seating and blind-spot monitoring. Add in surprising horsepower, and the Town & Country becomes a minivan you actually want to drive – with or without the family.
