Chrysler Town & Country Review

The 2014 Chrysler Town & Country ranks 3 out of 7 Minivans. This ranking is based on our analysis of published reviews and test drives of the Chrysler Town & Country, as well as reliability and safety data.

The 2014 Chrysler Town & Country has lots of standard features and a versatile seating system, reviewers say, but higher-ranking minivans offer better fuel economy and more refined handling.

The Town & Country has a V6 engine that test drivers say is powerful and provides smooth acceleration. The Chrysler Town & Country comes with a six-speed automatic transmission that automotive journalists think shifts smoothly. According to the EPA, the 2014 Town & Country gets 17/25 mpg city/highway, which is below-average for the class. Most test drivers say that the Town & Country has a comfortable ride, though some say that bumpy roads cause jostling in the cabin. As a result, a few critics think that other minivans have a nicer ride.

Reviewers say the interior of the 2014 Town & Country is upscale. They generally find the seats in the Town & Country to be spacious and comfortable. Most like the Town & Country’s Stow ‘n Go seating system, which features second and third rows that fold flat into the floor to maximize cargo space. The Town & Country has a long list of standard features for its class, which include leather seats, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, a rear-seat DVD entertainment system, a rearview camera, tri-zone automatic climate control, power-sliding rear doors, a 6.5-inch touch-screen display, a USB port, satellite radio, Bluetooth and a six-speaker audio system. Optional features include a power-adjustable front passenger’s seat, heated front- and second-row seats, a power-folding third-row seat, a blind spot monitoring system, rear parking sensors, navigation, a sunroof, keyless entry with push-button start, a dual-screen rear-seat Blu-ray entertainment system and a nine-speaker sound system.

  • "One of the longest-running models in the minivan segment, Chrysler's Town & Country offers a long list of standard luxury features in addition to a capacious, versatile and innovative interior. 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
  • "With its comprehensive equipment and nifty Stow 'n Go seats, the 2014 Chrysler Town & Country looks great on paper, but rival minivans are fundamentally more refined." -- Edmunds

Other Minivans to Consider

Reviewers say that the Toyota Sienna has a powerful, smooth V6 engine and a roomy, comfortable interior, much like the Town & Country. However, the Sienna also has an available all-wheel drive system for buyers who want improved all-weather performance.

The Mazda5 is a good choice for shoppers looking for a smaller minivan, great gas mileage, three rows of seating and a low price. Unlike the Town & Country, test drivers say that the Mazda5 is one of the most fun-to-drive minivans you can buy.
