2013 Chrysler Town & Country Performance
Being a Parent
being a Martyr.
283 Horses Don't Drive Like a Minivan.
The Chrysler Town & Country features a 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine coupled with the AutoStick six-speed transmission, delivering 283 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque with fuel economy ratings of 17 city / 25 highway mpg+.
This extremely refined engine features a compact, lightweight design with dual-overhead camshafts, high-flow intake and exhaust ports, Variable Valve Timing and Electronic Throttle Control with integrated speed control.
Control That Helps You Avoid Collisions.
Electronic Stability Control+ monitors your steering input and vehicle motion. When there's a difference between the two, it applies selective braking and reduces engine power to guide you back on your intended path. All-speed traction control applies brake pressure to slipping wheels and reduces engine power to regain traction and vehicle stability. And Brake Assist applies and maintains maximum braking pressure in emergency braking situations, to help you stop in the shortest distance possible.
Improve Fuel Economy in an Instant.
Affect your overall fuel economy+ during normal driving conditions with a selectable fuel economizer, which adjusts engine timing and transmission shift points to optimize fuel economy. The transmission will upshift sooner, downshift later and skip select gears during shifts to allow the engine to operate at lower speeds. The torque converter clutch will engage sooner and remain on longer, and the engine idle speed will be lower. To activate this feature, just press the "ECON" button in the center stack, and a green light will indicate the ECON mode is engaged.
A Smooth Ride, Full or Empty.
The Chrysler Town & Country features a MacPherson strut front suspension and twist-beam rear axle with coil springs. It provides highly responsive handling and a very smooth ride with improved stability. And when you drive with a fully packed vehicle, the available load-leveling / height-control suspension adjusts the ride height, distributing the weight of passengers and cargo evenly for optimum control to help give you a safe, secure and more comfortable ride.
