A little extra equipment and ornamentation set the Town & Country apart from the similar Dodge Grand Caravan. The current-generation long-wheelbase Chrysler minivans have scored well in our tests, and reliability has improved to average. All ride fairly quietly and handle reasonably well. Optional all-wheel drive adds peace of mind. The front seats provide adequate support.
