2014 Chrysler Town and Country Overview

Price Range: $30,765 to $41,995

Your Price: Ask Us


The 2014 Chrysler Town & Country is a luxury hauler that will get the entire family wherever you need to go in comfort.

The 2014 Town & Country is a close relative of the Dodge Grand Caravan; the two share a chassis and an engine, but the Town & Country is clearly the more upscale of the two. It also gets a unique front grille for differentiation. Power adjustable wing mirrors are heated to avoid glazing, the halogen headlights are automatic, and fog lamps come standard. Available features include automatic HID headlamps with automatic high-beams, rain-sensitive windshield wipers, and powered wing-mirrors with integrated turn signals.

The interior of the Town & Country is mostly untouched for 2014 after adding a few useful options last year, including two additional USB ports for charging mobile devices and an HDMI input. The handy Stow-N-Go second row returns, allowing the middle seats to fold completely into the floor when more storage space is needed without the need to store the seats somewhere in the garage. Standard features include leather upholstery, second-row DVD system with a higher resolution screen, automatic climate control with rear controls, a 6.5-inch touch-screen up front, and power-adjustable driver’s sea. Also available are premium heated leather seats, rear Blu-Ray entertainment system, satellite navigation, and Uconnect Web which offers passengers Wi-Fi internet access (with subscription).

The 2014 Town & Country comes with only one engine choice and it’s a good one: a 283-horsepower, 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 with 260 pounds-feet of torque. It comes mated to a six-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive, returning 17/25 mpg city/highway.

The 2014 Town & Country was designed with safety in mind, suitable for a family oriented vehicle, with seven airbags, traction/stability control, four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, active front headrests, and a backup camera all standard. For safer maneuvering, the Town & Country offers blind spot monitoring with rear cross path detection at parking-lot speeds as an option. As a result of these features, the Town & Country gets a four-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA and a Top Safety Pick award from the IIHS.

Secret 1: 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?

Secret 2: 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?

Secret 3: 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?

Secret 4: 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?

Secret 5: 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?

Secret 6: 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.
