The only engine for the Chrysler Town & Country is a 3.6L V6 that produces 283 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. A "Fuel Economizer" mode helps make engine and powertrain adjustments to maximize fuel efficiency. The V6 is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission and drives premium-grade, low-rolling resistance tires, low-friction bearings and other technology to maintain fuel economy. The 2016 Chrysler Town & Country is rated at an estimated 17 mpg city and 25 mpg highway, and the suspension provides an agile, confidence-inspiring driving experience.
The interior includes beautifully crafted high-quality materials that are soft to the touch, including leather seating. Standard features include smart storage, a wood-surfaced console and flexible seating options. Optional UConnect technology brings touchscreen and voice command for convenient control of multiple media sources, navigation and hands-free phone operation. A dual DVD entertainment system can show two rear-seat headphone-wearing passengers up to two different movies.
The Town & Country's standard safety equipment includes front, side and knee air bags as well as active head restraints for all three rows. All-speed electronic stability control is also standard. Optional safety equipment includes a tire pressure monitor along and an accident avoidance feature with blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-path detection and a ParkView backup camera. The sunroof and windows feature an auto-reverse system to prevent accidental pinching. An Enhanced Accident Response System turns on interior lighting, flashes hazard lights and shuts off fuel flow after a collision.
Comfort features include heated mirrors, power-adjustable seats, a smart-key system, a garage-door opener, dual-zone climate control and a remote start system. There is an available heated steering wheel, rain-sensitive windshield wipers and roof rack crossbars that rotate and store in the side rails to reduce aerodynamic drag. LED taillights and a rear light bar help make the Town & Country more visible no matter the weather conditions.
The Chrysler Town & Country is largely unchanged for 2016, though a new 90th Anniversary Edition based on the Touring L trim features a power sunroof and special badging.
