Chrysler Town & Country Review
The 2013 Chrysler Town & Country ranks 4 out of 6 Minivans. This ranking is based on our analysis of 47 published reviews and test drives of the Chrysler Town & Country, and our analysis of reliability and safety data.
Though it's not a terrible minivan, members of the automotive press say others in the class have more to offer than the 2013 Chrysler Town & Country.
Like almost every other van in the class, the 2013 Chrysler Town & Country is powered by a V6 engine and has a six-speed automatic transmission. However, unlike others in the class, test drivers say the powertrain in the Town & Country is unrefined, and that it feels like the Town & Country's engine doesn't live up to its horsepower rating. Fuel economy, at 17/25 mpg city/highway, is slightly less than what's typical for the class. Test drivers also comment that the Town & Country doesn't handle as well as other vans do, though it does have a smooth ride.
Reviews of the Town & Country's interior are a mixed bag. Reviewers like the standard Stow 'n Go second-row seats, which fold into the floor to maximize cargo space, but several report that overall, Town & Country's seven seats aren't comfortable. Standard features on the Town & Country include a rear-seat entertainment system with Blu-Ray capability, while optional features include Sirius Backseat TV, Chrysler's uConnect WiFi system and navigation. Reviewers single out the navigation system as being particularly easy to use.
- "PROS: Passenger and cargo room, Quietness CONS: Handling/roadholding" -- Consumer Guide
- "Although the Chrysler Town & Country boasts a strong engine, confident handling and a well-trimmed cabin, it still trails the competition in terms of refinement." -- Edmunds (2012)
Other Minivans to Consider
Though it doesn't offer a standard rear-seat entertainment system, the Honda Odyssey does offer a standard USB port, Bluetooth and rearview camera. Reviewers also rate the Odyssey's performance better than the Town & Country's.
The Toyota Sienna has a larger overall cargo capacity than the Town & Country, as well as a better reliability rating and available all-wheel drive.
