The Chrysler Town and Country has been around for a very long time. It was actually sold as a station wagon from 1941–1989, before Chrysler took the name and applied it to the family minivan it is today. The Town and Country is only offered in one loyal configuration – long wheelbase with front wheel drive – but can be customized with three different trim levels – LX, Touring, and Limited.
Power for the people pusher comes from a choice of three V6 engines ranging from 175hp and 205 lb-ft of torque to 251hp and 259 lb-ft of torque. These engine variants are mated to a 4- or 6-speed automatic transmission.
The model will be offered in four exterior colors: Brilliant Black, Deep Cherry Red, Stone White or Billet Silver. It also receives a dark-chrome grille, a black-background Chrysler Winged badges, a black rear fascia step pad, "S" model badges and a set of 17-inch aluminum wheels with polished faces and black-painted pockets.
Inside the cabin, the new S version will add Black Torino leather seats with an "S" logo embroidered in the seat backs and black Ballistic cloth seat inserts. The instrument panel will also get Piano Black gloss appliques and will be combined with a black leather-wrapped steering wheel, a black headliner, upper consoles and center console, and an "S" logo in the instrument cluster.
The Town & Country S will come with with a 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine that delivers a total of 283 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. The engine will mate to a 62TE six-speed automatic transmission. It also features a performance suspension that provides a comfortable, yet sporty, ride — as sporty as a minivan can be.
Chrysler is in the process of unveiling a whole army of refreshed models for 2011, and one of those models is the 2011 Town&Country. This year’s Town and Country will receive many changes to the exterior, interior, and even the powertrain. The new model will go on sale in the fourth quarter of 2010.
The 2011 Town & Country will be powered by a new Pentastar V-6 engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, producing 283 HP and 260 lb.-ft. of torque. The interior gets a new instrument panel and instrument cluster, upgraded cloth and leather seating materials, new “soft touch” door trim and new heating and cooling control system. The pièce de résistance for all of the revised Chrysler models is the new Chrysler Brand steering wheel with integrated controls that allows the driver to operate the radio, cruise control, handsfree phone, and other vehicle functions while keeping their hands on the wheel.
The list of standard equipment will include Blind-spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Path detection, SIRIUS Backseat TV – both of which are exclusive to Chrysler Group minivans - voice command functions for radio, iPod/mp3 players, phone, navigation and information, and the SafetyTec bundle.
