Changes for the 2015 Chrysler Town & Country:
In what is widely expected to be its final year in current format, the Chrysler Town & Country adds new trim levels and the bottom and top of the lineup.
Though it serves as the entry-level model, the new Town & Country LX is equipped with leather seats. At the opposite end of the spectrum, the new Limited Premium model includes premium leather, a standard power sunroof, a dual-screen Blu-Ray DVD entertainment system, and more. Chrysler also upgrades the Limited model for 2015, adding power folding third-row seats and a navigation system as standard equipment.
For 2015, six versions of the Town & Country are on sale: LX, Touring, S, Touring-L, Limited, and Limited Premium.
To the LX model’s standard equipment list, Touring models include automatic headlights, automatic 3-zone climate control, and a power driver’s seat. The Touring-L is further equipped with a SafetyTec Package, second- and third-row window shades, a security alarm, and remote engine starting.
The Town & Country S is the sporty version of the minivan, based on the Touring model but equipped with darkened exterior trim and wheel finishes, a sport-tuned suspension, a dual-screen Blu-Ray DVD entertainment system, special leather seats with fabric bolsters, piano black cabin trim, and a Super Console with extra storage and functionality.
Limited models add luxury, including chrome trim, polished wheels, navigation, heated seats and steering wheel, power folding third-row seats, keyless passive entry, and a Super Console. The new Limited Premium model comes standard with nearly everything Chrysler offers on a Town & Country.
Engines and Transmissions:
A 283-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6 engine is the only one offered in the 2015 Town & Country. A 6-speed automatic transmission powers the front wheels.
Fuel Economy Ratings:
In combined driving, the Chrysler Town & Country is rated to get 20 mpg, according to the EPA.
The NHTSA says the Town & Country provides 4-star crash protection. When you look at the individual results, the side-impact ratings amount to 5 stars, giving parents confidence in the minivan.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gives the Chrysler its highest rating of “Good” in four out of five assessments. The IIHS has not tested the Town & Country in the small overlap frontal-impact test.
Though the current Town & Country dates back to 2008, this minivan is remarkably modern. The SafetyTec Package contains rain-sensing wipers, automatic high-beam headlights, rear parking assist sensors, and a blind spot detection system with rear cross-path detection. You can also get a proximity-sensing passive entry system, a heated steering wheel, heated second-row seats, and a dual-screen rear-seat entertainment system with a Blu-Ray DVD player.
The available Uconnect infotainment options are also impressive, though the 6.5-inch display screen is small by modern standards. Nevertheless, a Town & Country supplies standard Bluetooth connectivity and an optional 40-gig hard drive navigation system that has extra storage space for photos and music. As a dealer-installed accessory, Uconnect Web turns the minivan into a rolling Wi-Fi hot spot.
