Narrow year range (drag arrows to filter):
Heavily revised for 2011 with new styling and the class-leading horsepower of Chrysler's new Pentastar V6, the Town & Country edges higher in refinement for 2012. Leather seating and rear-seat DVD entertainment are now standard on all trim levels.
Both the LX and Limited receive more standard equipment. LX trims now feature three-zone air conditioning, second-row power windows and third-row power vent windows as well as a combination temperature/compass/trip computer gauge. New options include a Blind Spot Monitoring system, dual 9-inch DVD view screens with swiveling third-row screen and the Rear Cross Path system, which warns drivers backing up of objects approaching them.
Beneath the surface of its boxier, more masculine styling, the fifth-generation Town & Country offers improved powertrains, more contemporary interior styling and class-exclusive options like satellite TV (offering three family channels) and clever second-row seating options. The shorter-wheelbase Town & Country model is no longer.
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.

"This is a reliable and comfortable car. We have only had to do routine maintenance. I cannot stress enough the utility of this vehicle. We use it for everything from cross country trips to moving furniture. The ability to roll down the back windows is a big improvement ion the old style. It has more than enough power for going up and down hills in the foothills where we live. I never thought I would love a mini-van, but I really love this vehicle."

"My family and I looked at and test drove every minivan on the market. I had my heart set on a Honda Odyssey or Toyota Sienna, but the Chrysler T&C was by far the best of the bunch. The flexibility that stow-n-go offers for storage and loading large objects into the cabin without having to remove the seats from the vehicle is unmatched. The drive is smooth and quiet and the luxury/trim of the interior make it extremely comfortable. Additionally, the T&C has outstanding engineering that allows me to change my own oil and accomplish minor maintenance. I'd like to see Chrysler offer a long warranty on the vehicle, but it's current coverage is comparable to other manufacturers."

"Almost 100 more h.p. and 28 to 30 mpg on the highway. Sticker says 25.Chrysler thought about the interior a lot on this make-over. Even the window sills are flat so you can rest your elbow there. The grand-kids love the window shades and I appreciate the headrests folding out of the way when not in use. Give us another inch clearance when the seats are folded into the floor. This way the 4'wide things won't scrape the sides of the interior walls."
