2007 Chrysler Town & Country Review

The Chrysler Town & Country is among the best in a field of great minivans. Its innovative Stow 'n Go seating design makes it more versatile than the competition. The 2007 Town & Country is roomy, comfortable, practical, and powerful. Chrysler's minivan combines the practical features of the Dodge Caravan with a higher level of equipment and style; it is a luxurious minivan with an innovative seating design that adds greatly to its versatility. Besides a new mix of colors, Chrysler's 2007 Town & Country minivan is identical to the 2006 model. The Town & Country shares a platform with the Dodge Caravan and Grand Caravan. Besides Stow 'n Go, other innovative features include an available media player that plays CDs, MP3s and DVDs.

Trims for 2007

The 2006 Chrysler Town & Country comes in four trim levels: base, LX, Touring, and Limited. All models come with a four-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive. All-wheel drive is not available.

The base model comes equipped with air conditioning, power windows, cruise control, tilt steering column, remote keyless entry, four-speaker AM/FM/CD stereo, tire pressure monitor, 15-inch steel wheels and dual manual sliding doors. The upholstery is cloth. The Stow 'n Go seats are not included, however, and the second-row seat is a bench.

The LX is built on the same wheelbase as the upmarket Touring and Limited, but is equipped similarly to the base model. It is similar to the retired long-wheelbase Voyager. The most important feature of the LX is that it comes with Stow 'n Go seating. Also standard are heated power mirrors, four-wheel-disc brakes with ABS, and upgraded interior and exterior trim.

The Touring model is a Town & Country step ahead, with dual power sliding doors, a power liftgate, three-zone manual temperature control, six-speaker AM/FM/CD cassette audio, upgraded interior trim, eight-way power driver's seat, improved interior lighting, overhead console with trip computer, leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls, universal garage door opener, roof rack, 16-inch aluminum wheels, and traction control.

The flagship Town & Country Limited is in many ways a luxury vehicle, and it is in many ways an excellent value. It comes with leather-trimmed upholstery, heated seats, GPS navigation, automatic climate control with air filtering, 6CD/DVD changer with MP3 playback, a removable center console, fog lights, automatic headlamps, Park Assist, power adjustable pedals, and a memory function for the radio, driver's seat and mirrors.

Driving the Town & Country

Chrysler has set the minivan standard in ride comfort and driving ease. Despite increased competition, these models still serve as benchmarks. The 2007 Town & Country's light steering is appropriate and automatic-transmission shifts are prompt and easy. The Town & Country Limited delivers enough performance to impress on the highways. The ride is smooth and comfortable, even on rough roads. The 2007 Town and Country is easy to maneuver and park in crowded lots or on the street. The Chrysler is quiet at high speeds; wind noise was reduced in the 2007 by using triple door seals, molded gaskets, a more aerodynamic roof rack, and a spiraled antenna. The four-wheel disc brakes that come on the long-wheelbase models stop them quickly and without drama. Heavy-duty brake rotors and calipers ensure strong braking performance, plus durability. Anti-lock brakes (ABS) and traction control, which comes standard on the Limited, improve handling even more.


Front Impact airbags and antilock brakes are standard. Optional side curtain airbags protect occupants in all three rows of seats. An inflatable knee blocker helps protect the driver. LATCH child-safety seat anchors are installed, and rear parking assist is optional.

Chrysler Powertrain

Base and lower trims of the Town & Country are powered by a 3.3-liter V6 rated at 180 horsepower, while a more powerful 205 horsepower 3.8-liter V6 comes standard on more expensive trims. All trims come with a four-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive. Properly equipped, the 2007 Town and Country can tow up to 3800 pounds, enough for personal watercraft, an ATV, or a light boat.

Inside the Town & Country

The cabin of the Chrysler Town & Country is a comfortable place for all seven passengers. The third row, unlike in most SUVs, is spacious and easy to access. Seat belt anchors are height-adjustable in the front and middle rows for improved comfort and safety. The cabin comes equipped with a tilting steering column, remote keyless entry, tire pressure monitor, 15-inch steel wheels and dual manual sliding doors. Upholstery is cloth and the second-row seat is a bench. The amazing Stow 'n Go system only comes in trims higher than the base trim. With this design, the seats folds flush with the floor, and opens up more than 160 cubic feet of cargo space; this is substantially more than in any sport-utility vehicle. When the second-row seats are upright, two storage bins with integrated lids provide additional storage space. Standard cargo net bags adjust to fit each storage bin. Folding and unfolding the seats is a quick three-step process. Pull one strap to drop the seatback, and then pull two other straps to tuck it into the floor, completely out of sight. Very few seats fold perfectly flat and no one else (except Dodge) has a second row that does this.  Split-bench tailgate seating is made possible by flipping the third-row seat rearward. The second-row seats move fore and aft about four inches, recline up to 40 degrees and have 13 positions. The third-row seatbacks recline up to 39 degrees and feature 12 positions. Convenience features are all over the Town & Country cabin. Storage bins and cargo nets assist with carrying groceries. Three adjustable, removable bins fit into an overhead rail system, and one can hold an optional DVD entertainment system's screen. Cargo volume behind the rear seat is 15.3 cubic feet for standard-length models and 26.4 cubic feet for long-wheelbase minivans. The low load height also makes loading cargo easier.

2007 Design

The 2007 Chrysler Town and Country has a raked windshield, rising roofline and beltline, and fast D-pillars framing canted rear windows that help it with aerodynamics. Pronounced wheel arches complement sharp character lines that flank the integrated grille. The rear end is designed to make Town & Country look wider than and not as tall as it really is. Huge taillights feature clear red lenses and jewel-like reflectors. There is a black piece of trim below the rear bumper for the Park Assist system that looks tacked on.  A winged Chrysler badge spans the full width of the grille, which has four horizontal chrome bars. Sculpted headlights and round fog lamps are included. Touring and Limited minivans get a roof rack and 16-inch cast-aluminum wheels, while other versions ride on 15-inch steel wheels. For 2007, the new colors are Cognac Crystal Pearl, Marine Blue Pearl Coat and Modern Blue Pearl Coat.

The Town & Country Limited packs a stronger engine and more safety features than its competitors. The base model is even comparable to others. Despite the growing choices of minivans available, the Town & Country continues to be a popular choice. It is available in standard-length base as well as extended-length LX, Touring and Limited models and it's Stow 'n Go systems set it apart from others in the way of convenience and storage.  The Town & Country stands as a desirable family vehicle. It has an estimated fuel economy range of 26 mpg Hwy, and 19 mpg City.
