2013 Chrysler Town & Country Touring L Passenger Van

2013 Chrysler Town & Country Review

(0 Stars)  The minivan for those who value versatility – and value – above all else.

New for 2013
If your children require a high-definition distraction from their journey, the 2013 Town and Country delivers. An upgraded rear-seat entertainment package includes both a Blu-Ray disc player and an HDMI audio/video input. Families with multiple mobile devices will also appreciate a pair of USB charging ports accessible to rear-seat passengers.
Overview
Minivans were put on this planet for one primary purpose: to haul people. Lots of people. The Chrysler Town & Country does just that, but also adheres to the brand’s principle of infusing everyday vehicles with a little luxurious flair. Since its overhaul in 2011, the Town & Country’s exterior has been imbued with projector headlamps, LED taillamps, and a slew of chrome accents. The new rear-seat video system won’t entertain the driver, but a few modifications made during the van’s makeover in 2011 – notably a 283-hp V-6 and revised suspension tuning – makes spending time behind the wheel a little less boring. The Town & Country’s standard Stow-N-Go seating, which boasts second- and third-row seats that quickly fold flat into the load floor, provides unrivaled versatility, but what the Town & Country boasts in flexibility it lacks in finesse. Its six-speed automatic doesn’t always shift smoothly, its body structure emits rattles over harsh impacts, and a bit smoother; we wish its body structure were a little more rattle-free over impacts; and we wish Chrysler would expand the use of upscale, soft-touch materials within. That said, the Town & Country is more of a premium people mover than ever before.
