2016 Chrysler Town and Country Release Date, Price, Specs, Msrp – The new vehicle will probably be one of the best minivans one can buy in the market, however, it doesn’t make perfect sense quite like the Chrysler’s Dodge division near-twin.

The new minivan is almost identical to the Dodge Grand Caravan in terms of mechanical aspects. The Chrysler Town & Country 2016 will be competitively priced above the Dodge Grand Caravan for obvious reasons.

We can all remember that the minivan was last redesigned back in 2011, the new improvements this time round will be in the front fascia and interior. However, it will borrow several features from the Grand Caravan which include the V6 drivetrain, suspension, steering, safety and braking configurations.

Several must-have features which are also in the Caravan will include a power liftgate, power sliding doors, a rear view camera and Stow N’ Go seating. The latter feature is Dodge/Chrysler exclusive feature which allows the two posterior seats to be folded flat into the floor, enabling the 7-seater capacity minivan to turn into a tall package in a matter of microseconds.
