Chrysler Town & Country Performance
The 2015 Chrysler Town & Country has a powerful V6 engine and composed handling, according to most critics. However, some say it has a harsher ride on rough roads than the competition.
- "It's been a few years since the Town & Country was revamped, but this premium minivan's road demeanor holds up well." -- Kelley Blue Book
- "Though a dated platform means its driving manners aren't as refined as those of some competitors, the Town & Country does feature class-leading power courtesy of a gutsy Pentastar V6." -- Left Lane News
- "As long as you forget about carving up back roads, the Chrysler is among the most comfortable, easy-to-drive vehicles on the market." -- The Wall Street Journal (2013)
- "A powerful V6 and confident handling make the Town & Country an alert minivan, yet it still doesn't feel as dynamic or responsive as the class leaders." -- Edmunds (2013)
Acceleration and Power
The 2015 Chrysler Town & Country comes with a 283-horsepower, 3.6-liter V6 engine and a six-speed automatic transmission. According to the EPA, the 2015 Town & Country gets 17/25 mpg city/highway, which is a bit lower than the fuel economy of most competitors, including the Honda Odyssey, Kia Sedona and Toyota Sienna.
Reviewers agree that the V6 engine provides more than enough power, even when the Town & Country is full of passengers. However, some note that it can be loud during quick acceleration.
- "The sole engine choice, Chrysler's lauded 3.6-liter Pentastar V6, has power in reserve and can easily move a fully loaded model." -- Kelley Blue Book
- "The Town & Country has plenty of power under the hood and delivers quick manual shifts with the automatic's shifter in AutoStick mode." -- AutoTrader
- "The Chrysler's V6 engine, while powerful and fairly smooth, can get noisy under hard acceleration." -- Edmunds (2013)
Handling and Braking
Most test drivers say the 2015 Chrysler Town & Country has accurate steering and feels more maneuverable than other minivans, especially when equipped with the S trim’s sport-tuned suspension. Some critics also say that the Town & Country has a comfortable ride. However, others write that it doesn’t ride as smoothly as its rivals on rough roads.
- "The solid handling gives the Town & Country a sense of maneuverability that's absent from some vans. The S model gets even better thanks to its retuned suspension." -- AutoTrader
- "The suspension is especially notable and combined with the 7-passenger minivan's precise steering and minimal body roll, translates to a comfortable ride." -- Kelley Blue Book
- "We're not overly impressed with the ride quality, either. Compared with the competition, the Chrysler's ride isn't as composed or refined on rough roads." -- Edmunds (2014)
- "With the standard suspension, Town & Country rides quite smoothly. Naturally, large pavement breaks find their way into the cabin. Some impacts can seem harsh, but those incidents are very rare." -- Consumer Guide (2013)
