Changes for the 2013 Chrysler Town & Country:
The premium pick among the Chrysler Group’s minivans—the 2013 Chrysler Town & Country—solidifies that position by introducing leather seating in all models, along with a standard rear-seat DVD player that boasts a sharper-resolution screen than in the 2012 system. Upping the entertainment ante even higher, the 2013 Chrysler Town & Country also offers a full-on rear-seat media hub with the industry’s first Blu-Ray DVD player.
Further fine-tuning for the current selling season includes a new 17-inch wheel design for the 2013 Chrysler Town & Country Touring L, while the Limited edition loads up with an HDMI video-game input, two rear-seat USB ports, Trailer Sway Damping and power-folding mirrors.
Exemplifying the premium approach of the 2013 Chrysler Town & Country, the portfolio doesn’t have a traditional entry-level model: The lineup leads off with the 2013 Chrysler Town & Country Touring, which includes a leather cabin with a rear DVD entertainment system, Uconnect Media Center Radio, a power-adjustable driver’s seat (with powered lumbar adjustment), Stow ’n Go seating, tri-zone climate control, rearview camera, and a multi-function steering wheel with audio, cruise and Uconnect controls. Naturally, the sliding doors, window, locks and liftgate are all powered in the 2013 Chrysler Town & Country Touring, and the vehicle also includes both automatic headlamps and fog lamps.
The 2013 Chrysler Town & Country Touring L benefits from a standard SafetyTec package that incorporates:
Also on the roster of refinements to the Touring L edition are perforated leather-trimmed seats (including power-adjustable passenger seats) and chromed exterior mirrors with integrated turn signals.
Already featuring all previously mentioned content, the 2013 Chrysler Town & Country Limited is bolstered by Nappa leather seat trim, with heated front and second rows, along with a heated and leather-wrapped steering wheel with wood accents, a dual DVD player with separate screens for second- and third-row passengers, navigation, keyless entry/push-button start, power-adjustable pedals, HID headlamps, an audio upgrade (with 506-watt amp, nine speakers and subwoofer), and Chrysler’s Super Console, providing enhanced storage for both first and second rows.
Engines and Transmissions:
The much-acclaimed Pentastar V6 is the standard and only engine for the 2013 Chrysler Town & Country, with that unit capable of delivering 283 hp and 260 lb.-ft. of torque. Power is routed through a six-speed automatic transmission with a fuel-economizer driving mode and AutoStick manual-style shifting functionality.
Fuel Economy Ratings:
Fuel-efficiency ratings for the 2013 Chrysler Town & Country are pegged at 17 mpg city/25 mpg highway/20 mpg combined.
A Top Safety Pick in testing by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), the 2013 Chrysler Town & Country also is a 4-star overall performer in evaluations by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Per NHTSA, the minivan achieved a 4-star score in testing for occupant protection in front- and rollover-crash scenarios, with a 5-star grade for side-crash protection.
Cabin versatility is a key selling point in the minivan segment, so it’s worth noting that the 2013 Chrysler Town & Country includes a nifty seating system that, in all models, allows the third row to face out for tailgating activities.
Among its more traditional tech benefits, the 2013 Chrysler Town & Country provides a variety of Uconnect systems, with features like a hands-free Uconnect phone setup and mobile wi-fi capabilities, and all the driver-assistance measures loaded into the SafetyTec package (e.g., blind-spot and rear cross-path warnings, as well as intelligent headlights that dim for approaching traffic).
