2014 is a special year for the Chrysler Town & Country. While the Town & Country wasn't introduced until the 1989 model year, the Dodge Grand Caravan made its appearance in 1984. 2014 marks the 30th year of minivan production for the Chrysler Group. There is a commemorative 30th Anniversary Edition trim available on the Town & Country.
While the Chrysler Group didn't invent the minivan, they were the one to realize its potential and bring the vehicle to the masses, demoting station wagons to a bygone era. Even though minivans like the Town & Country have an uncool image, their immense practicality and versatility are unmatched in the marketplace. For more information on the 30th Anniversary Edition, and all available trim levels, check out your Chrysler Town & Country, Daytona Beach FL dealership for more information.
Performance and minivan may not necessarily go together, but is crucial to remember that these vehicles are the workhorses for many busy families. The 2014 Town & Country comes with Chrysler's Pentastar 3.6-liter V-6 engine producing best-in-class 283 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque.
The Town & Country comes with a six-speed automatic transmission and can tow up to 3,600 lbs. with the optional towing package, which is available across all available trims levels. Chrysler estimates the Town & Country to get 17 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway.
Like most cars today, the Town & Country is packed full of technology and creature comforts. Chrysler's Uconnect system allows you to connect your phone right to the vehicle via Bluetooth. Uconnect provides you with voice-guided navigation, while allowing you to use voice commands to operate your phone, helping to eliminate some driver distractions.
No minivan would be complete without integrated DVD players. The Town & Country offers two Blu-ray and DVD compatible entertainment systems for the second and third row seats. Wireless headphones help keep the cabin quite while passengers enjoy their favorite movie.
Chrysler's Stow 'N Go seats fold into the floor for a perfectly flat stowage area behind the driver. This is ideal for carrying lengths of wood and other large and cumbersome items.
If you bought a minivan there is a good chance are you have children. Chrysler provides the Town & Country with the latest safety features. The available SafetyTec package provides blind spot monitoring, rear cross path detection, and ParkSense front and rear park assist. Visit our Chrysler Town & Country dealership near Deland FL for more information about the available SafetyTec package.
The Town & Country is an IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) Top Safety Pick and offers front, side, and rear-curtain multi-stage airbags. Chrysler offers a 5-year or 100,000-mile limited warranty. The Town & Country comes with ESC (electronic stability control) designed to maintain your directional stability. The system monitors your steering input and vehicle direction and if it notices a difference between your intended path and the vehicle's actual path, the system applies selective braking and throttle control to get the vehicle back to its intended course. This is a wonderful feature in harsh weather conditions.
Another great safety feature is for those that tow with their Town & Country. The Trailer Sway Control uses sensors to recognize the swaying trailer and attempts to stop the sway by reducing engine power and applying the brakes to the appropriate wheel or wheels to counter the sway of the trailer.
The Town & Country is a pleasant mixture of luxury and versatility that people want. It drives like a car, hauls the kids and groceries, and can tow when it needs to. With a starting price of $30,765, be sure check out our new vans for sale near Palm Coast FL.
