2008 Chrysler Town & Country Overview

You'd be hard-pressed to find a vehicle that offers more interior storage space, entertainment options, and family-oriented features than the 2008 Town and Country, and that's just the way Chrysler likes it. While the 2008 Town and Country received some exterior updates, such as a new grille and cleaner, more contemporary lines, drivers don't buy this functional minivan for its good looks. They buy it to transport Mom, Dad, the kids, the pets, friends, family, and all their associated gear to wherever they need to go. And Chrysler has responded for 2008 by adding even more features and options that make the Town and Country one of the best equipped and most functional minivans available today.

One of the Town and Country's new optional features is Swivel 'n' Go seating, which enables passengers to swivel the second-row captain's chairs 180 degrees to face the third-row seat, so kids can talk and play games on the removable table included with the Swivel 'n' Go option. Other seating options include the Town and Country's popular Stow 'n' Go seating and a third-row power-folding seat, giving drivers a number of available seating configurations.

The Town and Country also comes equipped with a wide range of storage bins and map pockets, including storage space in the sliding side doors. Drivers who require even more space can opt for the three-part premium center console with a sliding upper tray, and they can even add an umbrella holder to the equipment list.

But wait, there's more. The Town and Country also offers a number of "infotainment" options for 2008, including a rear dual DVD entertainment system, Sirius Backseat TV with family programming, Sirius satellite radio, a nine-speaker Infinity audio system, and the MyGIG Multimedia Infotainment System, which includes a 20-gigabyte hard drive for storing songs, photos, and more.

In a nod to eco-friendly drivers, the Town and Country comes with a 175-horsepower, 3.3-liter six-cylinder engine with FlexFuel capability, so it can accept E85 gasoline, a blend of 85 percent Ethanol and 15 percent unleaded gas. Drivers can also choose from a 197-horsepower 3.8-liter V6 or a 240-horsepower 4.0-liter V6. The 3.3-liter engine links to a four-speed automatic transmission, while the other engines link to a six-speed automatic.

Drivers and reviewers have noted that, in the past, the Town and Country has handled better than many SUVs, although some have noted that braking and acceleration could be improved. For 2008, the Town and Country comes equipped with independent suspension, so it rides smoothly over rough roads, and an Electronic Stability Program, which improves handling and braking in emergency situations. Some drivers have also noted that the Town and Country has suffered from reliability issues in the past, although the vehicle's reliability has improved in recent years.
