Chrysler Town and Country по праву считается одним из наиболее популярных и неординарных американских минивэнов. История модели началась еще в далёком 1982 году, когда уже весьма известный на тот момент гигант Chrysler, решил порадовать своих поклонников новым автомобилем. На сегодняшний день выпущено уже 5 поколений Chrysler Town and Country. Среди них есть модификации, как с длинной, так и с короткой колёсной базой.

Однако, в последнее десятилетие разработчики делают основную ставку именно на длинную базу. В 1994, 2004 и 2008 году выходили юбилейные версии автомобиля, которые выпускались весьма ограниченным тиражом, и были лакомым кусочком для коллекционеров. В начале 2012 года появилась информация о том, что вскоре прекратится выпуск модели. Однако, уже спустя несколько месяцев, на автосалоне в Лос-Анджелесе американцы представили обновлённую модель — Chrysler Town and Country S 2013. Нетрудно догадаться, что приставка «S» акцентирует внимание на спортивных качествах новинки. Стоит отметить, обновление автомобиля коснулось таких аспектов, как внешний вид, салон, комплектации и также технические характеристики.

Внешний вид Chrysler Town and Country S

Нужно сразу сказать, что дизайнеры предложили три новых цвета раскраски кузова: чёрный, красный и современный серебристый. В целом, внешность автомобиля выглядит очень спортивно, чего точно нельзя было сказать о предшественниках. Дизайн передней части Chrysler Town and Country S 2013 еще раз напоминает о том, что автомобиль позиционирует себя, как минивэн класса «Люкс». В глаза сразу бросается полуовальная радиаторная решетка едкого чёрного цвета, с хромированной окантовкой. Расположенные с обеих сторон решётки фары головной оптики заметно увеличились по сравнению с предшественником. Они выполнены по светодиодной технологии и благодаря своему дизайну, придают автомобилю более сосредоточенный «взгляд».

Несмотря на то, что создатели установили достаточно мощный бампер, воздухозаборник и противотуманки уместились в небольшую полоску, которая расположена в нижней его части. Таким образом, пустота между решеткой и воздухозаборником образовывает своеобразный «лоб» автомобиля, который, как ни удивительно, отлично вписывается в общую концепцию дизайна. Что касается капота, то он немного выпуклый, а для большей обтекаемости на нём установлены продольные рёбра, которые выполняют функции воздухопроводных коридоров.

Дизайн боковой части Chrysler Town and Country S 2013 немного разочаровал. Это сразу отметили как критики, так и простые автолюбители. Всё дело в том, что разработчики, когда сообщили о том, что новая модификация станет более спортивной, пообещали поработать над элементами боковой части. В итоге, изменений почти нет. Как и раньше можно наблюдать плавную боковую поверхность с большими дверцами и окнами. Немного оживлённости придают объёмные колёсные арки, под которые теперь устанавливают новые алюминиевые диски на 17 дюймов. Также, стоит отметить, не очень удачную форму кузова в плане аэродинамики, но это никак не влияет на общее позитивное впечатления от минивэна.

Корма нового Chrysler Town and Country S 2013 напоминает не то задок внедорожника, не то – микроавтобуса. Уж очень она объёмная и максимально вертикальная. Львиную долю общей площади задней поверхности занимает дверца багажника, на которой установлено большое окно и в самом центре красуется фирменный логотип компании. Задние фары также весьма оригинальные, и соединены между собой хромированной полоской, на которой выгравировано название модели. Задний бампер нельзя назвать большим и мощным. С правой стороны он оснащён аккуратной выхлопной накладкой.

Интерьер Chrysler Town and Country S

Салон Chrysler Town and Country S 2013 является настоящим творением искусства. Никого не удивил тот факт, что интерьер обновлённой версии имеет много общего с внутренним убранством предшественника, ведь он по праву считался одним из лучших в классе. В качестве материалов для отделки салона использовали дорогую чёрную кожу и высококачественную баллистическую ткань. Приборная панель выполнена из дорогого пластика тёмных тонов. Передний ряд сидений оборудован по всем современным нормам. Стоит отметить, что водитель и передний пассажир имеют достаточно личного пространства, и в случае надобности могут воспользоваться удобными подлокотниками.

В качестве «баранки» используется современный мультифункциональный руль с мини панелью управления и многоуровневым подогревом. Приборная панель может похвастаться тем, что в ней отсутствуют лишние элементы – всё максимально просто, и от этого не менее высокотехнологично.

Пассажиры второго и третьего ряда сидений также могут наслаждаться достаточным количеством свободного пространства и комфортными креслами. Среди дополнительных «фишек» хочется отметить: экраны, синхронизированные с мультимедийной системой, розетки на 12 и 115 вольт а также наушники для каждого пассажира.

Технические характеристики Chrysler Town and Country S

По мнению многих экспертов, Chrysler Town and Country S 2013 стал наиболее удачной версий, в плане сочетания мощности и экономичности. Силовой агрегат, которым оборудован американский минивэн, ранее дважды был признан лучшим двигателем по версии «Ward’s 10 Best Engine». Его роль выполняет V-образный шестицилиндровый мотор с объёмом 3.8 литра, который способен продуцировать 283 лошадиных силы при 260 Нм.

Новый мотор работает в дуете с шестиступенчатой АКПП. Именно за счёт удачно подобранной трансмиссии, а также шинам, с низким сопротивлениям, разработчикам удалось добиться неплохих показателей расхода: в городе – 13.8 литров, на трассе – 9.4 литров.

Безопасность Chrysler Town and Country S 2013 года

Разработчики уделили особое внимание системе безопасности Chrysler Town and Country S 2013, так как оснастили автомобиль более чем 40 опциями, а также новой модифицированной адаптивной подвеской. Водитель может рассчитывать на комплект современных подушек безопасности, мощность срабатывания которых прямо пропорциональна тяжести столкновения. Стоит отметить, что подушки также установлены и на задних рядах минивэна. Помимо этого Chrysler Town and Country S 2013 оборудован системой контроля курсовой устойчивости, благодаря которой удаётся избегать боковых заносов автомобиля. Также присутствует система экстренного торможения «Brake Assist». Не стоит забывать и о парктронике, интеллектуальных дворниках, а также о системе мониторинга слепых зон.

2016 Chrysler Town & Country

Tucking a lavish array of equipment and a passel of luxury touches into a rapidly aging body yields the only premium-level minivan on the U.S. market. Largely identical in structure and mechanical elements to the Dodge Grand Caravan, the Chrysler Town & Country is priced higher but contains enough features to justify the added expense.

Despite its obsolete underpinnings, the Town & Country is the most luxurious, and perhaps the most flexible, minivan on the American road.

Both the Chrysler and Dodge minivans have a long history, having debuted for the 1984 model year. Each has been a popular item through the years; but those years have taken a toll, in terms of the ability to cope with todays crash-testing programs.

Sole drivetrain of both minivans is a 283-horsepower V6 engine, coupled to a 6-speed automatic and front-wheel drive. Thats entirely sufficient for carrying a large family or group of friends, on long trips or short jaunts. Chrysler does not offer all-wheel drive for them; all are front-wheel drive. And thats the same story with its competitors, except for the Toyota Sienna.

Chryslers minivans have retained the same basic body style since 2008, though restyled three years later. Thats a considerably advanced age for any type of passenger car. Yet, the Town & Country still looks attractive, at least judged by minivan standards.

Chrysler and Dodge minivans promise good visibility from the drivers seat all around. They also stand out for seating convenience. Stow n Go seating offers one-touch fold-down action. On the connectivity front, a Uconnect technology group ensures convenient control of multiple media sources, along with hands-free phone connectivity. To satisfy frequent Internet users, optional Uconnect Web can transform the minivan into a Wi-Fi hot spot.

Second-row captains chairs are available for Touring-L, Limited, and Limited Platinum models, dropping passenger capacity from eight to seven.

Available for 2016 is dual-screen DVD entertainment, featuring HDMI input for video game systems. An available super center console provides CD/DVD storage.

Because the Town & Country is due to be replaced by a markedly different minivan during 2016, nothing of consequence has changed for the current model year, apart from a new special edition: The Town & Country Anniversary Edition commemorates 90 years of the Chrysler brand. Based on the Touring-L model, it includes a sunroof, heated first- and second-row seats, heated steering wheel, and Keyless Enter n Go

2015 Chrysler Town & Country

The Chrysler Town & Country is a great vehicle for families that need to haul people and cargo on a regular basis. For maximum passenger and cargo space, a minivan is hard to beat, and Town & Countrys seating options are among the best in the class. And its controlled handling makes for a nice driving experience. Chrysler Town & Country and Dodge Caravan sales account for nearly half of total minivan sales.

For 2015, Chrysler Town & Country gets two new trim levels: The 2015 Town & Country LX features leather-trimmed seats, Stow n Go seating and rear backup camera, while the 2015 Town & Country Limited Platinum tops the model line with Nappa leather upholstery, heated seats front and second-row, power sunroof, dual-screen Blu-Ray video system, and a SafetyTec package. A total of six 2015 Chrysler Town & Country trim levels are offered.

There are no other major changes for 2015. The last complete redesign of Chryslers minivans was for the 2008 model year. Ever since the interior revisions made for 2011, the Town & Country look is more elegant, interior materials are richer, the gauges look better, and soft-touch door tops are used.

Town & Country comes with one engine: a 3.6-liter V6 that generates 283 horsepower. Fuel economy is an EPA-estimated 17/25 mpg City/Highway, right on par for this category, which includes Honda Odyssey and Toyota Sienna.

Todays Town & Country sits lower than it did a few years back, and its suspension is stiffer, to make it more controlled. The ride is quite smooth, with no evidence of wallow or float. The Town & Country S furthers this road-behavior characteristic with its sports suspension.

The Stow n Go seats tuck nicely into the floor, and when theyre up, the floor bins offer extra storage space. The rear seats fold into a well behind them, allowing a perfectly flat, voluminous rear storage area. With the third-row seats up, the storage well provides space for groceries and other small cargo.

Entertainment choices include rear-seat TV, DVD or DVD/Blu-Ray players, a powerful stereo, and iPod connectivity. While the dashboard is mostly plastic, so are those in most minivan rivals.

2014 Chrysler Town & Country

Chrysler is the old-timer among minivans, having launched its first group way back in 1984. Since then, Chrysler and Dodge minivans have gone through a succession of generations, making many improvements but retaining the body styles practical virtues. Long considered the vehicle of choice for suburban families, minivans have lost favor in recent years, and many former owners have turned to crossover SUVs. Still, for anyone who appreciates sensible motoring, with plenty of space for passengers and cargo, a minivan is hard to beat; and Chryslers long-lived luxury version remains among the top contenders.

Chrysler is celebrating the three-decade run of its minivans for 2014, marking the occasion with special 30th-anniversary editions of both the Town & Country and the closely related Dodge Grand Caravan. Among other extras, the 30th Anniversary Edition includes 17-inch aluminum wheels with polished faces, 30th Anniversary badges, and availability of Granite Crystal Pearl Coat paint.

Otherwise, Town & Country carries over to the 2014 model year unchanged. The last complete redesign was for the 2008 model year. The 2011 Chrysler Town & Country featured revised styling, a new engine, an upgraded suspension, and a reworked interior.

All 2014 Town & Country models have the same engine: a 3.6-liter V6 that generates 283 horsepower. This places Chrysler in line with the fine V6s offered by the competition, including the Honda Odyssey and Toyota Sienna. Fuel economy is an EPA-estimated 17/25 mpg City/Highway, on par for this category.

Todays Town & Country sits lower than it did a few years back, and its suspension is stiffer, to make it more controlled. The ride is quite smooth, with no evidence of wallow or float. Town & Country S furthers this with a sports suspension.

Town & Countrys entertainment and seating options are among the best in the class, roughly matched by the related Dodge Grand Caravan. Stow n Go seating with second-row bucket seats is standard. These seats tuck nicely into the floor, and when theyre up, the floor bins offer extra storage space. The rear seats fold into a well behind them, allowing a perfectly flat, voluminous rear storage area. With the third-row seats up, the storage well provides space for groceries and other small cargo. Many entertainment choices are offered, too, including rear-seat TV, DVD or DVD/Blu-Ray players, a powerful stereo and iPod connectivity. While the dashboard is mostly plastic, so are those in most rivals. Since the 2011 interior revisions, the look is more elegant, the materials are richer, the gauges look better, and soft-touch door tops are used.

2015 Chrysler Town & Country S review notes: Tried and true

EDITOR WES RAYNAL: If I’m remembering right, I haven’t driven a Town & Country since our long termer, the white one, six years ago. Six years! That car wore a $32,700 sticker. We put almost 33K on the beloved “Norge,” so called because of its gleaming white paint, boxy shape and practicality. To us, it was a refrigerator on wheels. The Norge went all 365 days in Autoweek fleet service without ANY repairs needed beyond scheduled maintenance. It spent zero days out of the office.

The 4.0-liter V6 pulled strongly enough to squeal front rubber at launch from the first day to the last. Oh sure, the Norge loosened up some over the year, but not to the point of creating noticeable squeaks, vibrations or rattles.

We came to love the Norge for its unparalleled functionality. The good news is everything on this new one is familiar — Chrysler hasn’t changed a thing. At least nothing I can tell.

One of the original minivans, this 2015 model proves the Town & Country is still a first-rate people mover (my only beef with this particular model is the rattling passenger seat). The ride and steering are decent, certainly good enough for the customer base.

T&Cs don’t sell great — competition from Nissan, Honda, Toyota and Kia has become intense, not to mention buyers’ trying to look hip, buying three-row crossovers up the yingyang. That’s a shame, really: We’ve preached for years that minivans have much merit in terms of maximum practicality, people-hauling ability and ease of operation. Buyers just seem to think minivans are muy uncool.

There are spy shots floating around of a new Chrysler minivan testing, and I for one applaud FCA for sticking with it even if the market is so-so.

ROAD TEST EDITOR JAKE LINGEMAN: Ah, the old T&C. It was probably the best minivan on the market for a decade or two. Unfortunately, the other manufacturers are catching up, and it seems like this car hasn’t changed in a handful of years. That’s not to say it isn’t nice — it is. But it really reminds me of our old long-term car.

First of all, it looks pretty damn masculine for a van. The dark chrome wheels and window tint make this T&C something I wouldn’t be ashamed to drive. The interior is nearly identical to our old car, as far as I can remember. And that’s fine. It’s nice without looking too high-falutin’, most things are within reach and the seats are La-Z-Boy comfortable. The radio/entertainment setup is getting old though. The rest of the Chryslers and Dodges have the new ones now. I heard a few rattles from the back, too. They might have been from the seatbelts.

Power from the Pentastar V6 is great, too much for a minivan. I’d say put a four-cylinder in there, but maybe once it’s loaded up with families, kids and gear it gets a little sluggish. The six-speed automatic is showing its age a bit as well. In normal cruising, it shifts smoothly, but try to confuse it, and it falls apart. If you smack the pedal down, it’ll give you one gear, then maybe two more, popping the revs up to redline. Getting back on the gas in between the 2-1 shift throws it off, too. A couple jerky starts had me checking to see if I was in manual mode.

The T&C is definitely comfortable and doesn’t really feel like it’s going to fall over. I made few quick turns and lane changes without any surprises. It does roll a bit, though. The brake stroke is a little long, but modulation is good. It absorbs bumps well, as a minivan should.

Like I said, the Town & Country reigned for a long time, but now the Honda Odyssey is pretty good, as is the Sienna swagger wagon.

Options: Customer preferred package including SafetyTec, automatic high beam headlamp control, blind spot and cross path detection, ParkSense rear park assist system, rain sensitive windshield wipers and tire pressure monitoring display ($1,945); driver convenience group including heated front seats, heated second-row seats, heated steering wheel, second and third-row window shades, front easy clean floor mats, left rear easy clean floor mats and right rear easy clean floor mats ($695); radio 430N AM/FM/CD/DVD/MP3/HDD/NAV, Garmin navigation system and SiriusXM Travel Link with five-year subscription ($1,095); compact spare tire and flex fuel vehicle ($295)

2014 Chrysler Town & Country S First Test

The Original Premium Minivan is Showing Its Age

See all 39 photos

It’s been three decades since Chrysler created the minivan segment with the Dodge Caravan/Grand Caravan and Plymouth Voyager/Grand Voyager. Six years later, the 1990 Chrysler Town & Country arrived for the final year of the minivan’s first generation as an upscale offering. The fifth-generation Town & Country has been on the market since the 2008 model year, making it the oldest vehicle in the segment. We recently spent some time in a mid-level 2014 Chrysler Town & Country S to see how well it has aged.

Our tester was finished in Deep Cherry Red Crystal Pearl Coat paint over black Torino leather seats with black Ballistic cloth inserts. «S» logos are embroidered in the front seatbacks. The exterior features a black chrome grille, black headlight bezels, foglights, and Hyper Black 17-inch alloy wheels. Notable standard equipment on the S trim includes eight-way power driver’s seat, ParkView rearview camera, performance suspension, Super Console, Uconnect infotainment system with a 6.5-inch touchscreen and 40 GB hard drive, Bluetooth audio and phone, dual Blu-ray DVD rear entertainment system with second- and third-row 9.0-inch screens, three-zone (front left, front right, and rear) climate control, power sliding doors and liftgate, power heated exterior mirrors, and tinted glass. And of course the second- and third-row Stow ‘n Go seats and third-row tailgate seats.

Options include a $1,945 SafetyTec Package (automatic high beam control, blind-spot and cross-path detection, ParkSense rear park assist, rain-sensing wipers, tire pressure monitoring display), $100 second- and third-row window shades, and $995 Uconnect infotainment system with Garmin-based navigation system and SiriusXM satellite radio. With a base price of $33,990 (including $995 destination), our tester came to $37,030.

Although those numbers are consistent with many of its competitors, the 3.6-liter Pentastar and six-speed auto combination seem crude by comparison. The engine feels aggressive, but there is a noticeable (air intake?) whistle or (transmission?) whine as you pull away from a stop. «The accelerator seems spongy, and you really have to throw it all the way down to get it to wake up,» noted Chris Clonts, Motor Trend digital director. Despite these criticisms, the Town & Country can peel out from a stop in the dry or wet; wheel hop and torque steer included. Around town, the handling feels confident, though the stiff suspension gives it a firm and bumpy ride, especially over rough pavement. Despite its light steering, the Town & Country S offers good initial turn-in response and tracks straight down the road. There is a notable amount of road and wind noise even at low speeds.

The exterior’s dark-trimmed theme carries over inside with the black leather seats with cloth inserts and gray stitching that carries over to the door armrests. The black leather-wrapped steering wheel features piano black trim on the spokes, as does the dashboard. Black is also used for the headliner, upper consoles, and center console. Another «S» logo is located in the instrument cluster. Although the dark interior initially gives the interior upscale feel, the cabin is filled with hard plastic, with the seats and door panels the exception. The gear shifter doesn’t feel quite as premium as the leather-wrapped steering wheel. Some liked the high mount position of the gear shifter, which didn’t block any of the infotainment or climate controls, but other (taller) drivers didn’t like how it was «right there in your face.» The Town & Country’s second- and third-row Stow ‘n Go seats and third-row tailgate seats were universally praised.

Chrysler’s latest Uconnect infotainment system with an 8.4-inch touchscreen is one of the best systems in the business. Unfortunately, the Town & Country is only available with a dated Uconnect system with a 6.5-inch touchscreen and a Garmin-based navigation system.

The USB and auxiliary inputs are located on the head unit rather than the center console, which means there are iPhone/iPod cord(s) hanging down from the top of the center stack. The Bluetooth phone system paired easily, but the voice-activated connection process and the voice announcing who is calling (also displayed on nav screen) and when the phone call ended, both futuristic touches at one time, make the experience seem dated. The Bluetooth audio system failed to work, as did the voice-to-text feature for sending SMS/iMessages. Continually showing cross streets and speed limit info are welcome navigation features, but having vehicle speed displayed where passengers can see? Not so much.

Additionally, the dual 12-volt outlets (one was key-on, the other always on) on the front of the center console were finicky, and the contact points didn’t stay connected to my iPhone’s car charger. Although the 12-volt outlets were less than successful charging my iPhone, the USB port can charge devices, albeit at a painfully slow rate.

In our Real MPG testing, the Town & Country more or less hit its EPA rating of 17/25/20 mpg city/highway/combined. The Chrysler minivan returned 16.9/24.9/19.8 mpg in our Real MPG tests in regular mode. Surprisingly, the city and combined numbers in regular mode were slightly higher than when tested in Eco mode. In Eco mode the Town & Country achieved 16.4/25.3/19.5 mpg.

As configured, our tester has a projected five-year cost of ownership of $44,692, which accounts for purchase price, state fees, depreciation, financing, insurance, fuel, maintenance, and repair costs. The Chrysler Town & Country S offers lots of content for the price — if you can overlook its flaws and less than stellar safety rating.

Chrysler Town and Country S ( 2013 )

Chrysler Town and Country S

Chrysler — the inventors of the minivan — is bringing modern design to the segment with the 2013 Town & Country S model. Debuting at the 2012 Los Angeles International Auto Show, the Chrysler Town & Country S is the latest «S» model in the Chrysler line-up, joining the 200 sedan and convertible and 300 sedan. The Chrysler Town & Country S gets exterior and interior enhancements as well as some standard equipment commonly associated with top-line models.

«We tailored the new Town & Country S for the active and style minded consumers. It’s the downtown style for the Town & Country’s uptown looks,» said Saad Chehab, President and CEO — Chrysler Brand, Chrysler Group LLC. «It’s more than fitting that we unveil this vehicle in Los Angeles given Town & Country S represents yet another modern take of ‘313’ in the ‘310.’»

Available in Brilliant Black, Deep Cherry Red, Stone White or Billet Silver, the 2013 Town & Country S gets revised trim that adds contrast to the minivan’s typically bright exterior treatment. A black chrome grille is combined with black-background Chrysler Winged badges front and rear, a black rear fascia step pad, «S» model badging, 17-inch aluminum wheels with polished face and black-painted pockets and blacked-out headlight bezels (delayed availability).

The interior features a monotone black interior unique to the Chrysler Town & Country S. It starts with the Black Torino leather seats with an «S» logo embroidered in the seat backs and black Ballistic cloth seat inserts. The seats also feature grey stitching as do the door armrests. Piano Black gloss appliques are found on the instrument panel and on the spokes of the black leather-wrapped steering wheel, and the Chrysler Winged badge on the wheel matches the black background-look of the exterior badging. Finishing interior touches include a black headliner and upper consoles, black center console and an «S» logo in the instrument cluster.

2013 Chrysler Town and Country S

The segment-exclusive dual-screen Blu-Ray DVD system with HDMI input, two USB recharging ports, a 12v outlet and a 115v two-prong outlet is standard. This system, new for 2013, allows rear seat passengers to view standard and Blu-Ray DVDs or to play a high-definition video game system on the new, higher definition, screens. Wireless headphones allow back seat passengers to enjoy this state-of-the-art system without forcing front seat passengers to hear the accompanying audio.

The 2013 Chrysler Town & Country S also features a performance suspension that adds a new level of handling dynamics to the driving experience, yet still provides a comfortable ride that’s expected in a luxury minivan.

Town & Country’s award-winning powertrain delivers best-in-class horsepower without sacrificing fuel efficiency. The 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine is a two-time «Ward’s 10 Best Engine» winner and produces 283 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque. The V-6 is mated to the 62TE six-speed automatic transmission.
