The Dodge Grand Caravan and the Chrysler Town & Country are the ultimate vehicles for families on the go. They offer a spacious cabin, amazing versatility, entertainment and organizational features, and an exterior design that is stylish beyond the typical minivan.
The 2011 Chrysler Town & Country features revised styling, a new engine, an upgraded suspension, and a reworked interior. The 2011 Town & Country lineup offers just one engine, replacing three different V6s offered for 2010. The new engine is a 3.6-liter V6 with considerably more power. The 2011 Town & Country sits lower than before and its suspension has been stiffened to make it more controlled. The interior is improved for 2011The look is more elegant, the materials are richer, the gauges look better, and there are now soft-touch door tops. Town & Country’s entertainment and seating options are the best in the class, matched only by the Dodge Grand Caravan. Improved Stow ‘n Go seating with better second-row seats is standard. These seats tuck nicely into the floor, and when they’re up, the floor bins offer storage space. There are also many entertainment choices, including rear TV, two DVD players, a powerful stereo and iPod connectivity. A couple of features have been dropped for 2011, notably FloTV and Swivel ‘n Go seating.
The Dodge Grand Caravan has also been substantially revised for the 2011 model year. The new engine for 2011 is a 3.6-liter V6 that replaces three archaic V6s from 2010, offering more power and improved fuel economy. The 2011 Grand Caravan suspension is stiffer than before and the van rides lower, making it more responsive to driver inputs than the 2010 model. For 2011, the interior of the Grand Caravan is upgraded, and we find the new look far more attractive. The materials are richer, though, like most of its rivals, hard plastic dominates the dashboard. Still, the new soft-touch door tops, redesigned gauges and nice bits of trim are welcome. The Dodge Grand Caravan is all about transporting people comfortably, efficiently and safely, while keeping them entertained. Its designers focused on interior creature comforts, such as the popular Stow ‘n Go seating system.
