2014 Chrysler Town and Country Overview
- Upscale cousin of the Dodge Grand Caravan, standard leather upholstery
- Easy fold Stow-n-Go second row seats that fold completely into the floor
- Final year, will be replaced in 2015 with a crossover
The 2014 Chrysler Town & Country is a luxury hauler that will get the entire family wherever you need to go in comfort.
The 2014 Town & Country is a close relative of the Dodge Grand Caravan; the two share a chassis and an engine, but the Town & Country is clearly the more upscale of the two. It also gets a unique front grille for differentiation. Power adjustable wing mirrors are heated to avoid glazing, the halogen headlights are automatic, and fog lamps come standard. Available features include automatic HID headlamps with automatic high-beams, rain-sensitive windshield wipers, and powered wing-mirrors with integrated turn signals.
The interior of the Town & Country is mostly untouched for 2014 after adding a few useful options last year, including two additional USB ports for charging mobile devices and an HDMI input. The handy Stow-N-Go second row returns, allowing the middle seats to fold completely into the floor when more storage space is needed without the need to store the seats somewhere in the garage. Standard features include leather upholstery, second-row DVD system with a higher resolution screen, automatic climate control with rear controls, a 6.5-inch touch-screen up front, and power-adjustable driver’s sea. Also available are premium heated leather seats, rear Blu-Ray entertainment system, satellite navigation, and Uconnect Web which offers passengers Wi-Fi internet access (with subscription).
The 2014 Town & Country comes with only one engine choice and it’s a good one: a 283-horsepower, 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 with 260 pounds-feet of torque. It comes mated to a six-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive, returning 17/25 mpg city/highway.
The 2014 Town & Country was designed with safety in mind, suitable for a family oriented vehicle, with seven airbags, traction/stability control, four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, active front headrests, and a backup camera all standard. For safer maneuvering, the Town & Country offers blind spot monitoring with rear cross path detection at parking-lot speeds as an option. As a result of these features, the Town & Country gets a four-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA and a Top Safety Pick award from the IIHS.
