2016 Chrysler Town And Country Overview

Data provided by Edmunds

With standard leather upholstery and a fold-flat second row, the 2016 Chrysler Town & Country comfortably marries luxury and utility. The 2016 Chrysler Town & Country is available with a new Anniversary package that commemorates Chrysler's 90th anniversary by adding more features to the Touring-L trim.

Chrysler's Town & Country has brought a touch of luxury and class to the minivan segment for more than two decades now. That original Town & Country built upon the related Dodge Grand Caravan by adding wood-grain decals, leather upholstery, dual-zone air-conditioning and power windows and locks. It might seem a little quaint today, but features like those helped the Town & Country become one of the most luxurious minivans of its day. The long-lived Chrysler Town & Country will soon pass the baton to the all-new 2017 Chrysler Pacifica. For 2016, the Chrysler Town & Country still comes standard with features that other minivans often charge a premium for. Leather seats, power-sliding doors, a power liftgate and a touchscreen interface with a rearview camera are all standard. On the higher trim levels, you can get features like xenon headlights, a premium sound system and a Blu-ray-based rear-seat entertainment system. Unique to the Town & Country (and its Dodge sibling) are second-row "Stow 'n Go" seats, which easily fold into the floor for a flat load area behind the driver. But the competition from Asia has turned up the heat on the latest Town & Country since it was last fully redesigned in 2008. The Honda Odyssey is one of the best in the segment, offering versatile seating arrangements and superior handling and refinement. Our other top pick, the Toyota Sienna, is equally as polished, and offers available all-wheel drive, making it a great choice for those who reside in northern climes. There's also the recently redesigned Kia Sedona to consider, which makes for a smart value-oriented alternative. Nonetheless, the 2016 Town & Country is a worthy pick, particularly if you want an upscale, competitively priced seven-passenger vehicle that can turn into a cargo van on the fly.

The 2016 Chrysler Town & Country is a good choice for minivan shoppers looking for luxurious accommodations at an attractive price. A rough ride and unrefined powertrain prevent it from achieving a top ranking, however.

The 2016 Chrysler Town & Country is available with an Anniversary Edition package that adds extra features on top of the mid-tier Touring-L trim.

Hate the sliding side doors

I like the town and country but will not buy another until they do away with the sliding side doors. They do not last long even after you get them fixed. The side doors have to be manually opened and not sliding for me. Have also spent a lot of money fixing the air conditioner

Best decision was "going mini van"!

My wife and I are in our 50's and a new 2016 Chrysler Town & Country Touring just made sense to us. We're getting older, but still like to get around! The optional side steps are helpful getting in and out. I always drove a car, including a Chrysler 300C! The mini van offers the versatility of stow and go seats, tons of space for flea market purchases, great visability and a back-up camera. I don't like backing up a vehicle, so any safety aid helps me. We became first-time grandparents this year, so comfortable, safe seating is important. The DVD player is there to entertain. Must haves of heated seats and steering wheel warm my backside and hands quickly! The Town & Country is no sportscar, but rides smoothly and I feel confident behind the wheel. After several months of ownership, with short trips, two-hour excursions with carrying purchases and baby shower gifts, the conversion from people mover to delivery vehicle has been easy. There have been zero issues, and I'm happy with this mini van purchase.

Not for the Mountains (CORRECTED) Good Van

There are only two gears, forward and reverse. The options for the transmission are : Park, Neutral, Reverse, and Drive. There are no lower gears to assist in braking when driving downhill. On a recent trip, we were returning from a family trip to Pagosa Springs in southern Colorado. When driving over Wolf Creek pass on Hi-Way 160, I could not shift to a lower gear when descending from the pass so had to ride the brakes to keep the speed down. The brakes apparently overheated and each time applied a loud rumbling from the brakes occurred. This is not a necessarily steep decline and is a well used Hi-Way. I was very concerned and will try to avoid the Colorado mountain roads while driving this vehicle.
CORRECTION: I HAVE NOW LEARNED HOW TO DOWNSHIFT. When the gear selector is in the 'Drive' position, tap the gear selector to the left to downshift and to the right to upshift back to drive. It is amazing that I did not know this feature even after researching the web and the drivers manual. It is an electronic shifting system.
Now, I like the van but wish the NAV system was better much like the Jeep Nav and phone system.

Hey, It's a minivan, not a sports car

This vehicle offers by far the best "bang for the buck" out there. Dodge/Chrysler has the van down to a science. We have had several of these, and each time we get a new one, Chrysler has added the one thing I said, "Gee this would be perfect if only it had..." Example: More USB ports. Everyone has their own phone and on long trips they always need charging. There are at least 2 in the back seat and 3 up front. Maybe even more I don't see.
If you remove and/or tuck in the seats, there is no reason for a suburbanite to get a truck. It' amazing what fits in there.

Only complaints:
1. The interior materials are very cheap looking, and just over all "blah." It seems so flimsy I almost think it will crack.
2. The Bluetooth. It's easier than the GM stuff, but still a pain in the neck to figure out. We have paired two phones about 10 times in 2 months and cannot figure out why they won't stay connected.

As exciting as mini-van ownership gets

It was a tough pill to swallow going from a luxury crossover SUV to a mini-van, but the Town and Country was a better option than the other options. We started looking at the Sienna because I wanted AWD. Unfortunately, it lived up to my previous experiences with Toyotas. When it comes to driving excitement, Toyota doesn't have a clue. We had to push the pedal half way to the floor to get it to move, and even then the acceleration was pathetic. The Honda was better, but for the money, I felt both Toyota and Honda interiors were just okay. When I saw that I could get a fully loaded Town and Country for the price of an entry level Toyota, I was shocked. I was also pretty impressed with the Napa leather quality in the Limited. Sure the fit and finish is typical domestic with plastic interior parts that have uneven seams, but it was hard to argue with the price. The acceleration is actually quite peppy for a mini-van as well. My wife quickly fell in love with it, and we made a great deal. My fears of quality came true one week after we bought it when the TV console developed a nasty rattle. We took it to the dealer and they said, "they are all made like that". Sad excuse, but they made a rubber gasket for it, and it seems to be better for now. We don't seem to be getting the advertised gas mileage at this point, but it is a mini-van, not a Prius. Our plan is to keep it for 3-4 years, and I think it will be more than adequate for that period of time as long as things don't fall apart.

Great on gas!

This is my seventh Town and Country. The six before this had over 100,000 mile on them with no engine or transmission problems. My 2002 went over 250,000 miles with no engine or transmissions problems. My present 2014 has 45,000 mile on it. It gets up to 31 mpg on the road and averages 26 mpg overall. I love the spacious interior and the way it holds the road. There are two things that are not to my satisfaction. The sliding doors do make noise when I drive through parking lots over the small bumps etc. The other is the chrome all over the dash that reflects the sun into my eyes. I painted over the chrome and now love the layout of the dash with the readout for the vehicle speed. I have the trailer tow package and have no problem pulling my 3200 lb boat. The engine is powerful enough for this as well as getting up to speed and entering the highway on ramps. You can't do much better in a minivan - great value for the price. Reliable and comfortable and great on gas. I get 27.1 combined gas mileage at this time. (6/16/16). I will be getting new tires in November before winter. I now have 56,000 miles on this van. In November I will have around 66,000 miles and the tires will be worn out. I still love this van and enjoy driving it. What a great van!

2016 Chrysler Town and Country Review

From Edmunds.com

With standard leather upholstery and a fold-flat second row, the 2016 Chrysler Town & Country comfortably marries luxury and utility. The 2016 Chrysler Town & Country is available with a new Anniversary package that commemorates Chrysler's 90th anniversary by adding more features to the Touring-L trim.

Chrysler's Town & Country has brought a touch of luxury and class to the minivan segment for more than two decades now. That original Town & Country built upon the related Dodge Grand Caravan by adding wood-grain decals, leather upholstery, dual-zone air-conditioning and power windows and locks. It might seem a little quaint today, but features like those helped the Town & Country become one of the most luxurious minivans of its day.

The long-lived Chrysler Town & Country will soon pass the baton to the all-new 2017 Chrysler Pacifica.

For 2016, the Chrysler Town & Country still comes standard with features that other minivans often charge a premium for. Leather seats, power-sliding doors, a power liftgate and a touchscreen interface with a rearview camera are all standard. On the higher trim levels, you can get features like xenon headlights, a premium sound system and a Blu-ray-based rear-seat entertainment system. Unique to the Town & Country (and its Dodge sibling) are second-row "Stow 'n Go" seats, which easily fold into the floor for a flat load area behind the driver.

But the competition from Asia has turned up the heat on the latest Town & Country since it was last fully redesigned in 2008. The Honda Odyssey is one of the best in the segment, offering versatile seating arrangements and superior handling and refinement. Our other top pick, the Toyota Sienna, is equally as polished, and offers available all-wheel drive, making it a great choice for those who reside in northern climes. There's also the recently redesigned Kia Sedona to consider, which makes for a smart value-oriented alternative. Nonetheless, the 2016 Town & Country is a worthy pick, particularly if you want an upscale, competitively priced seven-passenger vehicle that can turn into a cargo van on the fly.
