- “The 2016 Chrysler Town Country is a good choice for minivan shoppers looking for luxurious accommodations at an attractive price. A rough ride and unrefined powertrain prevent it from achieving a top ranking, however.” — Edmunds “A minivan’s primary purpose is to move families, pets and luggage safely and efficiently. The 2016 Town Country minivan from Chrysler does all that and then some, providing an upscale interior loaded with premium features.” — Kelley Blue Book “One of the longest-running models in the minivan segment, Chrysler’s Town Country offers a long list of standard luxury features in addition to a capacious, versatile and innovative interior. Though a dated platform means its driving manners aren’t as refined as those of some competitors, the Town Country does feature class-leading power courtesy of a gutsy Pentastar V6.” — Left Lane News (2015) “Chrysler pitches Town Country as an upscale alternative to the more mainstream Dodge Grand Caravan. It absolutely succeeds in that mission. It’s quiet, rides smoothly, and boasts an interior that’s notably nicer than the Caravan. Add to all this the convenience of its Stow ‘n Go seating, and you have a minivan that strikes a great balance between luxury and versatility.” — Consumer Guide (2013)
