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.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
