Eagle Ridge Review: 2013 Chrysler Town & CountrySep 15th, 2014
Ewww minivans! That’s the reaction that many buyers have when you bring up the seven passenger family machines that have become synonymous with bland styling, lackluster driving characteristics and an overall feeling of boring. Many buyers will avoid this category of vehicles at all costs, but I challenge you to find a flaw with the 2013 Chrysler Town & Country. As an affordable and safe family vehicle, the Chrysler Town & Country is leaps and bounds ahead of the competition.
Now let’s keep in mind that it’s not going to have a o to 60 time of 6 seconds, it’s not going to take the corners at 75km/h and it’s not going to be the first off the line from a stop light. But that is not what it is designed to do. It is designed to be a comfortable, functional and affordable option for families. One look at the list of options on the Town & Country and you will see why.
Inside the Chrysler you will find the usual features, including power windows, locks and mirrors, cruise control, air conditioning, keyless entry and more. But what sets this minivan apart is the additional features that come standard. Take for example the power sliding doors and power rear liftgate. Press three buttons and all your rear doors are open. No danger of small hands closing heavy doors and getting trapped, no fumbling with a handle when you have an arm full of groceries, no reaching to pull down a heavy liftgate. They are all powered and ready to go at the press of a button.
You will also appreciate the Stow ‘N Go seating. This innovative feature takes all of the third row seats and folds them completely flat into the floor. On paper this doesn’t seem so extraordinary, but in everyday life it is irreplaceable. You never have to remove bulky seats, and can reconfigure the interior into all sorts of different layouts to accommodate cargo, passengers or both.
Some nice technology features come with the Town & Country as well. You will find a touch screen audio system that has Satellite radio connectivity, Bluetooth, USB and auxiliary inputs. This allows you to utilize almost any device or smartphone. The touch screen display also houses a bright and vivid backup camera to help you get parked with ease. A power driver’s seat and power adjustable pedals allow you to pick the perfect seating position to keep you safe and comfortable behind the wheel.
Powering the Chrysler Town & Country is a 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine, which provides 283HP to get you and the gang where you need to go. A 6 speed automatic transmission and Variable Valve Timing will also make sure you get the most out of every drop of fuel. Seven standard airbags will keep all of the family safe, in the unfortunate event of a collision.
The Town & Country does not break any stereotypes about what a minivan is. But it does do everything that a minivan should do better than most on the road. The selection of Town & Country minivans on the Eagle Ridge Certified Pre-Owned lot includes models with leather, remote start, DVD players and lots more. And even better, they are practically brand new, but at a pre owned price. Check out the selection and come for a test drive today!
