2013 Chrysler Town and Country is arguably the best minivan that you can opt for. The versatile vehicle sees its rivals in up class 2013 Toyota Sienna and 2013 Honda Odyssey.
2013 T&C Overview
The 2013 edition of the Town and Country has already been declared as the best minivan in America by some of the reviewers. It is versatile, practical and comfortable and has been around for quite sometime. Some of the top competitors for the minivan are 2013 Toyota Sienna and 2013 Honda Odyssey.
The 2013 edition does not see many changes when compared to its precursor. The reason behind this can be the fact that the vehicle is scheduled to undergo a major overhaul in 2014 or 2015. So it will now be launched in market as a trendier and more up class alternative for 2013 Grand Caravan. Though many buyers are opting for muscular machines like crossovers and SUVs, the utility and practicality of a minivan like 2013 Chrysler Town and Country can not be replaced by an SUV or a crossover and this fact will not change for quite some time to come.
Under the Hood
The vehicle will see a 3.6liter Pentastar V6 power plant, which will be a carryover from 2012. This engine is also seen in many models of Dodge, Chrysler, and Jeep. It is efficient and makes sure the gas economy does not go for a toss. In 2013 T&C, the engine generates 283hp and 260 lb-ft of torque, coupled with a standard six speed automatic transmission system with manual shift control.
The minivan is expected to offer 17mpg on city roads, 25mpg on highways and 20mpg combined. If the car maker decides to include its latest 8 speed automatic gearbox, then we can see boost in gas economy with 18mpg in city limits, 29mpg on highways, and 22mpg combined.
As always, the vehicle will be equipped with some of the best safety amenities considering it is the most popular family hauler in America. Antilock brakes will be standard, which will assure a safe stop even on wet and icy tracks. Then there will be antiskid ESC, which will prevent the vehicle from going out of control even in the most extreme of handling situations. Blind spot warning system will be one of the optional features, which will alert the drivers of unseen vehicles.
The pricing of the vehicle is yet to be declared by the car maker, but we expect that it won’t be a big jump from 2012 pricing. The base price of the vehicle is likely to be in the range of $31,000 to $41,000.
2013 Chrysler Town and Country can actually be ditched for the 2012 edition as there aren’t any noteworthy changes in 2013 plus you won’t have to pay the those extra dollars for buying a brand new 2013 edition.
