2016 Chrysler Town & Country Driving Impressions


Ride and handling are essentially as expected from a capable minivan: predictable but engaging, focused on security and safety, despite trailing crash-test scores. Road behavior is satisfying, though the near-cushiony ride could use a greater level of suspension damping. The softly-tuned suspension tends to bound fore and aft at times while underway; more than, say, a Honda Odyssey or Toyota Sienna.

Steering remains on the ordinary side, but responds a bit more quickly than on previous Town & Country models. Overall, the driving experience differs little from a Grand Caravan.

Acceleration is enthusiastic with the strong V6, though it’s not the smoothest engine in a minivan. Gas mileage might not sound so thrifty, but Chrysler’s minivans are close to the top of their class, EPA-rated at 17/25 mpg City/Highway, or 20 mpg Combined.
