2011 Chrysler Town & Country Interior
Town & Country boasts all the space, functionality, and available power a minivan shopper could want. Along with the Grand Caravan from sister division Dodge, these minivans may not be as sporty as the Honda Odyssey or as well-appointed as the Toyota Sienna, but neither of those matches the Town & Country and Caravan’s blend of family-friendly attributes and dollar value, making Town & Country a Best Buy (2008-10, 2012-13)
Redesigned for 2008, Chrysler’s Town & Country minivan grew modestly in most dimensions and lost its short-wheelbase model. Town & Country was built from the same front-wheel-drive design as the Dodge Grand Caravan, but differed in trim and pricing. Rivals included the Honda Odyssey, Hyundai Entourage, and Toyota Sienna.
LX, Touring, and top-of-the-line Limited models were offered. LX models had a 3.3-liter V6 and a four-speed automatic transmission. Touring models held a 3.8-liter V6, Limiteds a 4.0-liter. Touring and Limited models used a six-speed automatic transmission, which was called a “minivan first.” The 3.3-liter V6 permitted flex-fuel operation, using E85 (an ethanol/gasoline blend). Standard safety features included curtain side airbags that covered all seating rows, antilock brakes, an antiskid system, and traction control.
Three seating configurations were offered; all accommodated seven passengers. The standard seating arrangement included a third-row bench that folded flush into the floor. Available Stow ‘n Go seating had second- and third-row seats that folded flush into the floor. Newly available for 2008 was Swivel ‘n Go seating that included second-row seats that rotated to face rearward, a removable table that fit between the second and third rows, and a flush-folding third-row seat. Options included a navigation system, DVD entertainment, and heated first- and second-row seats.
|2009 Town & Country
New safety features emerged for 2009, along with minor updates. A newly available “Rear Cross Path” system for Touring and Limited models could detect traffic moving toward the vehicle when the transmission was in Reverse. A blind-spot alert system now was available for Limited and Touring editions. Stow ‘n Go seating was standard. An optional Flexible Seating Group included Swivel ‘n Go seating. Options also included a uconnect multimedia suite, which could incorporate a 30-gigabyte hard drive; wireless cell-phone link; satellite radio; and satellite TV that broadcast child-friendly TV programming. Touring models could have the 4.0-liter V6 as an option.
|2010 Town & Country
The 2010 Chrysler Town & Country lineup gained some new rear-seat entertainment options.
|2011 Town & Country
The 2011 Chrysler Town & Country sees a number of changes, including freshened styling and more power. The 2011 model lineup includes Touring, new-for-2011 Touring L, and Limited. All have a new 283-horsepower 3.6-liter V6 engine. A 6-speed automatic is the sole transmission. The 3.3-, 3.8-, and 4.0-liter V6 engines have been discontinued.
|2012 Town & Country
The only change of note for the 2012 Chrysler Town & Country was that leather upholstery was now standard.
|2013 Town & Country
Town & Country was largely unchanged for 2013. One new option was a high-resolution rear Blu-ray entertainment system.

Chrysler celebrated the introduction of its trailblazing 1984 minivan with a 30th Anniversary edition of the Town & Country. Otherwise, the Town & Country was mostly unchanged for 2014.
