With groundbreaking innovations like the Stow ’n Go seating and storage system (first introduced in 2005), safety and security features like a minivan-first inflatable knee blocker and luxurious convenience innovations like remote power sliding doors and power liftgate, the 2006 Chrysler Town & Country continues to garner accolades.
Stow ’n Go
"Chrysler Town & Country invented the luxury minivan segment, and the 2006 models continue to offer luxury and functionality unlike any other minivan," said Jeff Bell, Vice President - Chrysler. "With Five-Star front- and side-impact crash test ratings and Stow ’n Go capability that allows it to be reconfigured on the spot to fit a variety of lifestyles and needs, the Chrysler Town & Country is the best lifestyle vehicle."
The Stow ’n Go seating and storage system features comfortable second- and third-row seats that easily fold into the floor in less than 30 seconds. With all seats in the upright positions, there is an available 12 cu. ft. of storage space. The second-row has two roomy, covered storage bins with 6 cu. ft. of available space, while the third row has an available 6 cu. ft. storage area with built-in grocery bag hooks. For 2006, Chrysler Group modified the second-row storage bin covers with a tri-fold access panel that allows easier access to the covered storage bins and doesn’t require moving the front driver or passenger seat forward.
The flexibility of Stow ’n Go offers an abundance of seating configurations, the most popular of which are:
- Family (all seats in the upright position)
- Limousine (second-row seats stowed in the floor, third-row seats upright)
- Cargo (second- and third-row seats stowed in the floor for a total of 160.7 cu. ft. of cargo capacity)
- Tailgate (third-row seats flipped rearward with rear hatch open for covered seating while parked)
- Designed for ’Garageability’ from the Inside Out
- Designing the minivan from the inside out led to the Chrysler Group’s original minivan formula: a garageable van with chair-height seating, easy entry and exit, a low, flat floor, front-wheel drive and flexible seating.
Features and Models
The 2006 Chrysler Town & Country honors this original minivan formula and enhances it with style, class and inspiration that are distinctly Chrysler. Starting with the prominent winged badge that extends the entire width of the grille, sculpted dual headlamps and clean, elegant character lines, the Chrysler Town & Country fits in at the country club or the soccer field.
"The 2006 Chrysler Town & Country minivan has an elegant, classic exterior appearance but an interior that’s ingenious in its flexibility and utility," said Joe Dehner, Director - Chrysler Design.
