2011 Chrysler Town and Country Overview
Boasting a new engine and changes to the interior and exterior, it won’t matter if you’re a soccer mom, baseball mom, or a mom at all to enjoy the family-hauling 2011 Chrysler Town & Country minivan.
For 2011, engine options drop from three, to one. Simplifying matters is the all-new 283-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6 that is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. The previous year’s model maxed-out at 251-horsepower, making the 2011 Town & Country more powerful, and better suited to handle heavy loads. An optional load-leveling suspension provides for a smoother ride, while an Economy driving mode alters the transmission’s shift points to increase fuel efficiency. The Town & Country receives 17 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway.
People buy minivans for their versatility and functionality, and both are on full display in the revised Town & Country. Seat up to seven passengers across three rows and take advantage of the Stow ‘n Go second-row seats, which fold into bins in the floor. The Stow ‘n Go seats are standard and feature one-touch operation. An optional power-folding 60/40-split third row also has one-touch operation for added convenience. A cloth interior and rear climate controls are standard, while leather upholstery, seat heaters for the front- and second-row seats, heated steering wheel, navigation system, and 9-inch overhead dual DVD screens are optional. The instrument panel is new as is the dashboard which features low-gloss, high-class materials, which add to the 2011 Chrysler Town & Country’s luxurious perch in the minivan segment.
On the outside, the 2011 Town & Country features a new chrome grille, restyled front air dam, and new taillights. A power liftgate, power-sliding side doors, rain-sensing windshield wipers, SmartBeam headlights, and 16-inch wheels are just some of the standard goodies. The Town & Country competes with the likes of the Toyota Sienna and Honda Odyssey, and is the more-sophisticated sibling of the Dodge Grand Caravan.
Because you’ll be hauling your most precious cargo in the 2011 Chrysler Town & Country, you’ll be happy to know that safety features like a backup camera and blind spot monitoring system are now standard for 2011. Other standard safety features include side-impact airbags for the front seats, side curtain airbags for all three rows, active front head restraints, rear parking sensors, power-adjustable pedals, antilock brakes, and an electronic stability system with traction control.
Make life easier without giving up the comforts and amenities you love in the versatile and restyled 2011 Chrysler Town & Country minivan.
