2016 Chrysler Town and Country Overview

  • Closely related to the Dodge Grand Caravan
  • Convenient Stow ‘n Go second row seats
  • Seats seven passengers
The 2016 Chrysler Town & Country is an upscale minivan that combines the practicality of a minivan with a luxurious interior that will keep the family rolling in comfort.

The Town & Country is closely related to the Dodge Grand Caravan; the two minivans share a platform and engines, but the Grand Caravan skews more utilitarian and affordable, while the Town & Country offers more amenities and creature comforts. For 2016, the Town & Country offers an Anniversary Edition which commemorates Chrysler’s 90th birthday. Trim levels include LX, Touring, S, Touring-L, Limited, and Platinum.

Under the hood there is only one engine option, but it’s a good one – a 283-hp, 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 that makes 260 pounds-feet of torque and is mated to a six-speed transmission. Fuel economy is estimated at 17/25 mpg city/highway. A load-leveling suspension is optional, which keeps the car balanced even when carrying heavy loads.

Inside, the Town & Country offers one of our favorite minivan features – Stow ‘n Go second row seats, which can collapse completely into the floor to open up a flat cargo area in the middle of the van. The seven seat Town & Country offers plenty of standard features including a 115-volt outlet, power sliding doors on both sides, a 6.5-inch touchscreen, a 30GB hard drive for storing music, satellite radio, leather upholstery, and automatic climate control. A second-row high resolution 9-inch screen with an HDMI input also comes standard, a segment exclusive. Also available are navigation, a Blu-ray rear entertainment system, and heated front and second row seats.

Standard safety features include six airbags, electronic stability control, power adjustable pedals, a rearview camera, and antilock brakes. Rear parking sensors and a blind spot warning system with rear cross-path detection are optional.

Car Buying Secrets

Consumer Incentives

Zero percent financing, employee discount, cash back, out-the-door price tags...

Most dealers work hard to offer the public competitive prices. These incentives can grab your attention, but they can also obscure the actual terms you're getting on your purchase.

How can you fully understand incentives to get the lowest possible price on your car?

Finance & Insurance

Most state franchise laws prohibit manufacturers from selling cars directly to the public, so the dealer will be your middleman. But in terms of financing and insurance, you can choose a bank or the dealer directly.

How can you determine what's in your best interest?

Additional Costs

Destination charges, taxes, license and title fees, advertising fees... When going to a dealership, you must ask for an explanation of any fee you don't understand. But you need to choose your battles wisely. Your local car dealer may have taken a loss or slim profit along the way, and your fighting over something like a doc fee when the deal is nearly wrapped up may be counterproductive.

In any case, there are many fees and charges in the sale process: some inevitable, others questionable.

How do you tell them apart?

Trade-in Value

If you currently own a car, it probably represents profit. The question is, whose profit will it be?

With few exceptions, you'll get the most money for your used car by selling it privately. That's because dealers pay wholesale prices — not retail prices — for used cars, and they sell them at retail.

Your current car's value can be used to lower the price on your new car. However, most people underestimate their used car's value when going to a dealership.

How can you maximize your value?

Dealer Holdback

The car manufacturer holds back a fraction of the price of all vehicles the dealership sells. Then, it returns the money to the dealership, usually on a quarterly basis.

Dealer holdback began its life as a safety net that ensured the manufacturers would have a security deposit of sorts if a dealership missed payments, and the dealerships would have money on hand to cover overhead costs when the holdback was returned.

How can you take advantage of dealer holdbacks to get the bottom line price?

Dealer Incentives

Unlike consumer incentives, dealer incentives are factory-to-dealer incentives that reduce the dealer's true cost to buy the vehicle from the factory to below invoice.

Manufacturers offer these incentives on a regional basis to generate sales on specific models. These incentives are sometimes referred to as "spiffs," and they can touch off competition among dealers to move slower-selling stock.

For instance, a dealer incentive may kick in when a certain sales target is reached, with each subsequent sale resulting in a higher factory-to-dealer rebate.

How can you benefit from that?
