Chrysler Minivan Reviews

Chrysler, the namesake and a marque of the U.S-stationed Chrysler Group LLC, is brand that's really faced adversity and made a huge comeback over the past couple of years. Much of this success can be credited to the Chrysler 200 and 300 sedan models, but the Chrysler Town and Country has also played an important role in the company's transformation. For the 2012 model year, Chrysler is offering the Town and Country Minivan in a variety of styles in the U.S. and the Chrysler Voyager outside of the U.S. (primarily in Europe and Mexico).

The 2012 Chrysler Town and Country minivan is available in three trims, all of which are 4-doors: the Touring trim, the Touring-L trim, and the Limited trim. Each of these minivans features a 3.6-liter V6 FFV engine and a six-speed automatic transmission. The Touring trim has a starting MSRP of $29,995, the Touring-L trim has a starting MSRP of $32,795, and the most luxurious trim, the Limited, has a starting MSRP of $39,300. The Town and Country has fuel economy ratings of 17 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway and boasts confident handling and a comfortable, attractive cabin. For the 2012 year, the minivan line features more standard equipment, such as a rear-seat entertainment system and leather seating. The Town and Country has remarkable standard safety features, such as a rear camera detection system and a blind-spot monitor, as well as the more common cabin full of airbags and traction and stability control.

The Town and Country name has been put on several different types of vehicles by Chrysler, including a 1940s convertible and a large 1970s station wagon. It first graced the minivan line in the 1990s, and it's extremely similar to the Dodge Grand Caravan, although it has more luxury features and unique styling. The base Touring Town and Country competes with such vehicles as its Caravan cousin, the Volkswagen Routan, the Honda Odyssey, the Toyota Sienna, and the Nissan Quest. Overall, the Town and Country is great for minivan drivers who want great standard features, a more upscale ride, and plenty of family-friendly cabin and cargo room. Stow 'n Go seats that fold flat and the minivan's third row seating are perfect for families on the go, and everyone can easily feel at home in the refined cabin, which is stocked with quality materials.

The 2012 Chrysler Voyager has been around for quite some time now. Though it stopped sales in the U.S. in the mid-2000s, it continues to be marketed in Europe. The minivan was first introduced to the European market in 1988 as a re-named version of the Plymouth Voyager and the Dodge Caravan. It is very similar to the Town and Country minivan, as seen in America. In 2011, the Voyager was rebranded under the Lancia name in Europe to strengthen that brand, but it continues to be named the Chrysler Voyager in the United Kingdom and Ireland. The Voyager comes in standard Voyager and Grand Voyager variations.
