AUBURN HILLS, Mich. | With more than 25 years of minivan development, 65 segment firsts, 40 available safety features and unsurpassed 25 mpg highway fuel economy, Chrysler Town & Country remains the best vehicle to transport people and things.

A Chrysler-first innovation and an exclusive in the segment is the Swivel ‘n Go seating group. Swivel ‘n Go features second-row seats that swivel 180 degrees to face the third row, a removable table that installs between the two rows, in-floor covered storage bins and fold-in-the-floor, third-row seating. Integrated child-booster seats and a minivan-first dual 9-inch rear DVD entertainment system with swiveling third-row monitor and Sirius backseat TV are also available with Swivel ‘n Go.

The minivan segment’s first-and-only Stow ‘n Go seating and storage system, the most flexible seating system in the minivan segment, is standard on all Chrysler Town & Country models, giving customers second- and third-row seating that quickly and conveniently folds into the floor.

Chrysler Town & Country continues to be the first in the minivan segment to feature Blind-spot Monitoring (BSM) and Rear Cross Path (RCP) accident-avoidance safety systems. BSM detects a possible unseen vehicle when changing lanes while RCP aids the driver when the vehicle is in reverse and warns if any traffic is moving toward the vehicle. Both systems utilize dual ultra-wideband radar sensors that notify the driver via an audible chime and a visible icon on outside mirrors.

Best-in-class aerodynamics and a minivan-first six-speed automatic transmission provide 2010 Chrysler Town & Country minivans with efficient dynamics. A 4.0-liter V-6 aluminum engine offers unsurpassed fuel economy and the minivan segment’s best combination of horsepower (251 hp/189 kw) and torque (259 ft-lb/350 Nm). With an EPA fuel economy rating of 17 mpg city and 25 mpg highway, the powerful 4.0-liter engine gives customers the fuel economy they want and the power they expect.
