2015 Chrysler Town & Country Review




The 2015 Chrysler Town & Country ranks 4 out of 7 Minivans. This ranking is based on our analysis of published reviews and test drives of the Chrysler Town & Country, as well as reliability and safety data.

While some rivals have a smoother ride, most critics like the 2015 Chrysler Town & Country because it has a flexible seating system and plenty of family-friendly standard features.


The 2015 Chrysler Town & Country comes with a V6 engine that critics agree has plenty of power for moving a full load of passengers, though some complain that it is noisier than rivals when accelerating hard. According to the EPA, the 2015 Town & Country gets 17/25 mpg city/highway, which is a bit low for the class. Most test drivers think that the Town & Country has precise steering and composed handling, but some write that it doesn’t ride as comfortably over rough roads as its competitors.

Test drivers think the 2015 Chrysler Town & Country has a classy interior design and upscale materials in most areas of the cabin. Though some write that the second-row Stow ‘n Go seats provide an awkward seating position, they add that the seats’ fold-flat design makes it easy to expand the cargo area. Reviewers also appreciate the Town & Country’s long list of standard features, most of which should appeal to families. The 2015 Town & Country comes standard with leather upholstery, a rearview camera, a second-row video screen, a DVD player, a 6.5-inch touch screen, satellite radio, a six-speaker audio system, two USB ports, a power liftgate and dual power-sliding rear doors. Available features include a nine-speaker audio system, a Blu-ray player, a third-row video screen, a sunroof, tri-zone automatic climate control, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert and rear parking sensors.

Car Seat Check

2015 Chrysler Town & Country: Car Seat Check

May 21, 2015




When it comes to minivans, the Chrysler Town & Country is at the top of many families' shopping list. In 2014, the Town & Country ranked No. 1 in minivan sales with 138,040 sold, according to Automotive News. For the 2015 model year, the Town & Country adds more luxury with standard leather seats on base models and a standard sunroof and dual-screen Blu-ray system on Limited Platinum versions. What haven't changed are the van's ultra-flexible second row Stow 'n Go seats, also standard.

How many car seats fit in the second row? Two

How many car seats fit in the third row? Two
What We Like

The two sets of lower Latch anchors in the second-row captain's chairs were easy to use with both hooklike and rigid Latch connectors.
The second row had plenty of room for our rear-facing infant and convertible seats. We didn't need to move the front passenger seat forward to accommodate them.
Both the forward-facing convertible and the booster seat fit well in the second row. The captain's chairs recline, making it easy to get a good fit with these car seats.
The forward-facing convertible installed easily into the third row, too.
Third-row access is excellent because of the wide walkway between the captain's chairs. The Stow 'n Go seats also easily tumble forward, and the step-in height is low.

What We Don't

The second row's tether anchors are at the base of the seatbacks. While the tethers were easy to use, this location can be difficult for parents to find.
The third row has one set of lower Latch anchors, which we like, but its location draws a negative review. The anchors are found on the larger portion of the 60/40-split seat, spanning two seating positions. This means you'll use two seating positions when installing one car seat in the third row using the Latch system.
Parents using the third row's tether anchor will want to make sure they're paying close attention and attaching the tether strap to the anchor and not a nearby cargo hook.
Seat bolsters in the third row affected the booster seat's fit. It sat at an angle, but we were able to push it back into an upright position. Seat belt buckles are floppy, which can be difficult for young kids to manage on their own.
