For 2011, virtually every customer touch point was redesigned or
re-engineered. From a suspension redesign that delivers an exhilarating driving
performance, to the new, exquisitely-crafted interior cabin with clever features
a family appreciates, to the beautifully sleek new exterior design, thoughtful
innovation was engineered in every aspect of the new Town & Country.
am very proud of the new Chrysler Town & Country; it's the first vehicle to wear
our new badge - our new wings. Which makes sense because the Town & Country is
packed with 'firsts'," said Olivier Francois, President and CEO - Chrysler
Brand. "We have improved the suspension from corner to corner, bested the power
and fuel economy with the all-new 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine and, of course,
upgraded the interior throughout."
Chrysler Group invented the modern
minivan in 1983 with the Dodge Caravan and Plymouth Voyager. The first luxury
minivan, the Chrysler Town & Country, debuted in 1989. Seventy-five
minivan-first innovations and 13 million minivan sales later, the company still
leads the way with the best, most innovative vehicle to move people and things.
Chrysler Group continues its industry-leading innovation in the minivan
segment with minivan-first features for 2011 including a heated steering wheel,
new Stow 'n Place roof rack system that allows roof bows to be stored in the
rails when not in use, a new, integrated, super center console for first- and
second-row passengers, and new fuel economizer mode that helps the driver
maximize fuel efficiency.
The new 2011 Chrysler Town & Country offers
more than 40 standard safety, security and technology features, providing
customers the safety they expect to ensure peace of mind when traveling.
Standard safety features include new front seat-mounted air bags, a new
driver-side inflatable knee blocker, advanced multistage driver and front
passenger air bags, side-curtain air bags for all three rows, electronic
stability control, including Brake Assist and all-speed traction control,
rain-sensitive windshield wipers, ParkSense rear park assist system, ParkView
rear backup camera, Blind-spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Path detection.
Fresh Exterior Design
The Chrysler Town & Country minivan has been
refreshed for 2011 with a sleek, elegant exterior design. The new "face of
Chrysler" starts with a new front fascia and grille inspired by the all-new 300
and shared across all the new Chrysler brand vehicles. The Town & Country also
is the first vehicle to wear the new Chrysler brand winged badge. A new hood,
and projector-style front fog lamps round out the exterior upgrades to the
front, setting the expectation of elegance when a customer first spots the
vehicle. Also new for 2011 is the rear liftgate with curved back glass,
body-color rear spoiler, fascia and liftgate scuff pad with bright stripe, rear
light bar and new LED taillamps. A chrome molding that runs across the entire
length of the vehicle connects to the bodyside molding to pull the whole package
