2015 Chrysler Town & Country

What's new for 2015? The 2015 Chrysler Town & Country receives a new, entry-level LX trim level, while the former Limited trim is split up in to the Limited and Limited Platinum trim levels. As a result, there is some minor rearranging of feature content.

With so many vehicles now trying to "cross over" to be everything to everybody, true people- and cargo-hauling utility doesn't get much more honest than a minivan's. And since Chrysler more or less invented the minivan concept, it's only natural to assume its Town & Country would be a no-brainer choice in that segment. But you'd only be half right. No question, the 2015 Town & Country is a well thought-out vehicle. Chrysler's long experience almost guarantees you won't be disappointed, either with the Town & Country's design and family-friendly touches, or with its value. Even the new base LX model comes almost lavishly equipped with life-easing standard equipment such as power sliding doors, leather seats, Chrysler's still-brilliant Stow 'n Go disappearing second-row passenger seats and a touchscreen audio interface.

Nonetheless, the 2015 Town & Country covers all the bases and does so at what is generally a great value. We think the value quotient, plentiful content and that extremely useful Stow 'n Go seating certainly justify placing the 2015 Chrysler Town & Country on your consideration list.

Minivan available in LX, Touring, S, Touring-L, Limited and Limited Premium trim levels

The 2015 Chrysler Town & Country minivan is offered in six trim levels: LX, Touring, S, Touring-L, Limited and Limited Platinum.

The entry-level Town & Country LX model comes packed with 17-inch alloy wheels, a roof rack, heated mirrors, dual power-sliding doors and a power tailgate. Inside you'll find remote keyless entry, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, tri-zone climate control, tilt and telescoping steering wheel with audio controls, leather upholstery, Stow 'n Go second-row seats, cruise control, full power accessories (including second-row power windows and third-row power vents), a conversation mirror, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob and a 115-volt AC power outlet.

Electronic features include Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, voice-command functionality, rear-seat USB charging ports, a 6.5-inch touchscreen with Chrysler's Uconnect system, a rearview camera and a six-speaker audio system with satellite radio, a USB/iPod interface and an auxiliary audio jack.

The Touring trim adds automatic headlights, foglights, eight-way power front seats, tri-zone automatic climate control with an air filter, and a rear seat single-DVD entertainment system with a second-row screen and an HDMI input.

Select the Town & Country S Trim and in addition to all of the above, you'll receive black-painted 17-inch wheels, a darkened grille, a performance-tuned suspension, leather upholstery with unique cloth inserts, an upgraded center storage console, a dual-DVD/Blu-ray player and a flip-down entertainment screen for the third row of seats.

Moving to the Touring-L trim means giving up the S model's specific trim, performance suspension and standard DVD/Blu-ray system (you can get the rear-seat entertainment equipment in the optional dual-DVD package). But the Touring-L adds automatic headlight high-beam control, rain-sensing windshield wipers, rear parking sensors, blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-path detection, auto-dimming and heated outside mirrors, remote ignition and second- and third-row window shades.

The Limited gets all the Touring-L's equipment, plus a navigation system and upgraded leather upholstery with faux-suede accents.

In line-topping Limited Platinum you'll get xenon headlights, power-folding exterior mirrors, a sunroof, keyless ignition and entry, power-adjustable pedals, a heated steering wheel, driver memory functions, heated front and second-row seats, power folding and recline for the third-row seat, a nine-speaker premium audio system and the S model's Blu-ray entertainment system.

Individual features and option packages can be added to some of the 2015 Town & Country's lower trim levels. The Safety Tec package that incorporates blind-spot detection, automatic headlights and wipers and other electronic safety features is standard for Touring-L, Limited and Limited Platinum models but can be added to the Touring and S trims. A sunroof can also be added to the Touring-L and Limited trims.

Leather upholstery, high level of comfort, upscale and appealing cabin, simple gauge cluster, Stow 'n Go second-row seats that fold into floor

Step into the 2015 Town & Country and you know you're not entering a strictly-for-the-school-runs people-hauler. The comfort of the leather upholstery and the high level of content is immediately evident. Some of the interior plastics are a little mundane to the touch, but the cabin generally is appealing and upscale in appearance. Front-seat sight lines are excellent, though, and the gauge cluster is simple, uncluttered and easily read.

One of the Town & Country's strongest selling points is the Stow 'n Go functionality of the second-row seats, allowing them to fold flat into the floor at the simple tug of a lever. The 60/40-split third-row seat also folds flat (power-folding capability is optional), and it can also be flipped backward to create handy seating for tailgate parties. Seat comfort is acceptable.

With all seats folded flat, the cargo area measures 143.8 cubic feet, a competitive figure for a minivan. With the seats in place, there are still a healthy 33 cubes behind the third row.

Standard on the 2015 Chrysler Town & Country are antilock disc brakes, stability control, active front head restraints, front seat side-impact airbags, a driver knee airbag and full-length side curtain airbags. A rearview camera is also standard. Blind-spot monitoring and a rear cross-path detection system are standard on the Touring-L, Limited and Limited Platinum.
