What Is the 2016 Town & Country?
The 2016 Chrysler Town & Country is a seven-seat minivan that competes with the Toyota Sienna, Kia Sedona, Honda Odyssey and Dodge Grand Caravan. Trim levels include LX, Touring, S, Touring-L, Limited and Limited Platinum. All Chrysler Town & Country models are equipped with front-wheel drive.
What's New on the 2016 Town & Country?
A new Anniversary Edition is based on the Touring-L trim and comes with a power moonroof, special floormats, heated first- and second-row seats, a heated steering wheel and keyless access with push-button start.
How Does the 2016 Town & Country Compare to Other Minivans?
The Town & Country's features are flashy when compared with its competitors and include a standard rear DVD entertainment system, power liftgate and standard Stow 'n Go seats and optional amenities such as a navigation system. While the Honda Odyssey is more refined and efficient than the Town & Country, it also costs more. The Kia Sedona goes toe-to-toe with the 2016 Town & Country in terms of value and is also available with features like a stand-alone rear entertainment system option, in addition to including forward-looking amenities such as available tablet holders.
While the 2016 Town & Country offers a nice selection of features, it also shows its age in terms of its crash-test ratings and multimedia offerings.
What Features in the 2016 Town & Country Are Most Important?
Every 2016 Chrysler Town & Country comes with a 283-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6 paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. Other significant standard features include leather upholstery, tri-zone manual climate control, second- and third-row seats that fold into the floor, a backup camera, a power liftgate and a rear DVD entertainment system with 9-inch screen. As required in all new vehicles, the 2016 Town & Country comes equipped with front airbags, antilock brakes and an electronic stability system.
Significant available features include a navigation system, heated first- and second-row seats, heated steering wheel, a rear dual-screen Blu-ray entertainment system, power moonroof, remote start and a blind spot warning system with rear cross-path detection.
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.
