Should I Buy the 2016 Town & Country?
The 2016 Chrysler Town & Country's 283-hp, 3.6-liter V-6 is the most powerful engine in its class, but it's also the heaviest minivan in its segment, which limits the practical effects of that power advantage. Its third-row legroom is lacking, and the available navigation screen is unintuitive and small. And while the fold-into-floor rear seats may not be the most comfortable around, they're tough to match in terms of the versatility they offer.
