Chrysler announced the new redesigned Town & Country, which will be presented during 2015. This will also be the sixth generation of this luxury minivan and there is a lot of news. One of the biggest changes is certainly the introduction of the hybrid powertrain. Chrysler seems to have figured out that the family people (who primarily buy this types of cars) wants better fuel economy. Although we all expected that we will see the first high-efficiency hybrid minivan from Toyota or Honda, the reality is a little different. The new 2016 Chrysler Town and Country will have a projected fuel economy of up to 75 mpg.
2016 Chrysler Town and Country Design Changes:
Although obtaining hybrid aggregates is definitely the biggest change in this model you will be also will be pleasantly surprised by its external appearance. In fact new 2016 T & C will actually be based on the Chrysler 700C concept, which was introduced back in 2012 at the Detroit Auto Show. Stylish body parts around the front and rear end are clearly associated with the European Lancia / Chrysler models, but the design style and grip of new 2016 Chrysler Town and Country MPV is made in the USA and not in Italy. Large sliding side doors reveal the interior of the vehicle covered with plenty of plush seating and iPad on the system of fixed behind the front seats.
2016 Chrysler Town and Country Powertrain Options:
They are still not know all the engine options, but one of them will surely be 3.6-liter V6 Pentastar engine. Chrysler announces that the plug-in version have fuel economy rated at 75 mpg. However, it is still not known which will drive a hybrid version of the model. It is believed that it will have a nine-speed CVT transmission.
Also this will be all-wheel drive minivan.
This will definitely be the most efficient minivan. Toyota also produces hybrid MPV but their fuel efficiency is in the range of 30 to 40 mpg. But these are not available on the US market.
2016 Chrysler Town and Country Release Date and Price:
As we found out, this will be the company’s only minivan. The new 2016 Chrysler Town and Country will hit the market in the first half of next year.
