What is it?The new Chrysler Town & Country gets a revised suspension and interior, and is powered by the new 3.6-liter V6 engine and six-speed automatic transmission introduced in the Jeep Grand Cherokee.
The Pentastar V6 delivers 283-hp in the Town & Country, up from 197 from the old 3.8-liter V6, and the carmaker claims the horsepower bump comes without a penalty in fuel economy. The new V6 replaces all three V6 engines previously offered. Other tweaks have been made to improve fuel efficiency, including a fuel economizer mode and lower rolling-resistance tires.
The updated Caravan also gets a new grill and front fascia.
Inside, a new instrument panel features larger, redesigned gauges and controls that Chrysler says are more intuitive and offer improved ergonomics. There's a new steering wheel with integrated controls for audio, navigation and speed control and a new shifter, plus an optional heated steering wheel. An available new center console with additional storage and functionality has room to stash a purse.
Standard safety features include a new driver's side knee air bag, along with seat-mounted side air bags, curtain air bags, and electronic stability control. A rear backup camera, parking sensor, blind spot monitoring, and rear cross detection system are optional.
When will it be available? Late 2010.
