2016 Chrysler Town & Country has gone a long way since its boxy beginnings and is now a large minivan with stylish, yet conservative styling. 2016 year model should be completely overhauled and, after a complete decade, should offer all-wheel drive option as well.
2016 Chrysler Town & Country Concept
It is still early in Town & Country’s production phase to pinpoint exact powertrain configurations, but expect similar options to those currently offered. 283-horsepower Pentastar V6 engine was doing and still is doing a good job, but Fiat/Chrysler are planning new companions for it.
Apart from being offered the way it is now, it should be combined with at least one electric motor in new, hybrid models. There’s even a possibility that we’ll see turbo four implemented in hybrid powertrain, but that’s less likely. We have already mentioned that, apart from standard front-wheel drive, future models are poised to come with optional all-wheel drive which was discontinued due to very low, folding second row of seats, but more on that later.
Current models are definitely ripe for a redesign, and new model will look much different in future. 2016 Chrysler Town & Country should be built upon new, lighter structure which will allow it to offer better efficiency among other things. Both front and rear fascias will be redesigned in order to fit with new-age requirements. Apart from completely revised frontal and rear appearance, new Town & Country should be slightly different from the profile as well. However, it is still too early to speculate upon precise changes at this point.
As mentioned above, 2016 Chrysler Town & Country is abandoning second row Stow ’n Go seat config in favor of All-wheel drive option. Sure, cargo floor won’t be as low as it used to be, and volume will suffer for it, but differences won’t be that large.
All-wheel drive should offer better grip to its owners, and there are other advantages of this choice too. On interior refinement part, Town & Country will remain one of a few luxury people mover options in U.S. market. Cabin is supposed to offer similar luxury level as it did up until now, but materials are likely going to be upgraded.
Top models will remain especially refined with all leather surfaces available in them, and wood accents in dash and door inlets. 6.5-inch touch screen display and 40 GB hard drive will be offered across the board, while Blu-Ray/DVD player with dual 9-inch seat-mounted screens will be standard in top-tier models.
Fuel economy figures are bound to see an increase over current 17/25 mpg numbers. This especially goes for new, hybrid options which should break 25 mpg combined mark with ease. Prices should remain similar, but they will be slightly higher.
2016 Chrysler Town & Country Price
Expect conventional models to be offered for prices between $30,000 and $40,000 as is the case now, but hybrids should be priced between $35,000 and $45,000.
2016 Chrysler Town & Country is an exciting new model of legendary minivan, mostly because long-lost all-wheel drive config is returning to the flock. Moreover, minivan will finally be redesigned after six long years, and it will offer another exciting, new feature; all-new hybrid model.
