The Chrysler town and country or we simply call it as chrysler minivan is one of the best minivans in the world. Since its first generation’s launch, the car has been admired by many people not only for its sleek design but also the performance. It is not surprising that it did not take a long time for the minivan to dominate world’s best minivan ranks. This time, the company has decide to make the new generation of the minivan that will be introduced as 2017 Chrysler minivan. Bringing the well-known name in the industry, the Town and Country, the new minivan will have some changes and improvements. The new generation of the chrystel minivan will have the Town and Country development in most parts of the body. It includes the headlights, taillights, grille, and some interior parts. The new three-row crossover of the Chrysler will get a new version too. The van is also said to have a plug in hybrid power train option.
According to some reports and spy photos, the size of the new 2017 Chrysler minivan will be the same with the current generation Dodge Grand Caravan. However, the floor looks a little bit lower. The new minivan also appears to get front fascia, the head lights and grille from the chrysler 200 while the taillights seem to be borrowed from the Dodge Durango. The styling concept of the car is from the 700C concept which was released in 2012. Besides, the minivan also gets its door mirror from the Dodge challenger. Although it was quite hard to see the interior view of the car, the spy photos fortunately managed to get some clear pictures. From the pictures, it can be seen that the interior design is borrowed from Dodge and Chrysler’s current playbook. An 8.4 inch unit touch screen is attached in the center console. It also features a Dodge steering wheel and digitals gauge cluster for the interior parts. A rotary shift knob to control the nine speed automatic transmission that will be used by the van is also fitted. There is also another large LCD placed between the tachometer and speedometer. in addition, a redesigned hood that cover instruments is also one of the new changes in there.
Although the chrysler company has confirmed that the new generation of minivan will use a plus-in hybrid power train, the detailed information about it still remains unknown. Some rumors say that the minivan will get penstastar V6. The all wheel drive will be launched with an option while the front drive will be standard. Besides, the power train of the minivan will be able to transmit up to 75 mpg. If the company can decrease the new minivan’s weight, it is possible that the car will get a turbocharged four-cylinder engine with an electric motor or motors. The transmission choice is likely to be the ZF-sourced nine-speed automatic from the Chrysler 200 and Jeep Cherokee. The new minivan is said to be launched some time in 2016. The price will be about $30,000.
