Chrysler might have invented the modern minivan, but time marched on, leaving this version of the Town & Country feeling dated and past its prime.
It’s not that the Town & Country totally lacks good points. Ride is very comfortable and settled. Passengers will also find a quiet, well-equipped cabin that offers considerable versatility. Both the second- and third row seats fold into the floor, which is a big convenience for times you need to maximize cargo space. Unfortunately, that trick also compromises comfort.
Handling is sound in everyday driving, but sloppy when pushed to the limits. The single engine choice, a powerful 3.6-liter V6, pulls strongly and sounds refined while doing it. However, 17 mpg overall is three or four mpg less than the class-best, and falls below many SUVs.
