Review: 2011 Chrysler #038; Country

By Jack on November 24, 2010

Behold: the minivan. Just to put that in I#8217;m going to list of the other whips you could (yo) for that kind of Infiniti G37. Audi A4.

BMW Those are #8220;entry-luxury#8221; automobiles, and cost #8220;entry-luxury#8221; money. You buy two basic Japanese sedans for kind of scratch.

We#8217;re all on the Internet, and we all pay cash for everything, and we all up our nose at minor sums thirty-seven thousand dollars . In the real world, however, real money. Figure a month in the typical five-year deal.

It#8217;s hard to that the typical family has the to make a payment like in this economy.

Chrysler that the Town #038; will now #8220;live#8221; in the $30K-and-up range. No more budget If you want one of those, go see your dealer.

The product, they say, the price. Let#8217;s figure out if correct.

Many of the press on hand for the Town #038; Napa Valley launch were gloss black, and easy to see why. If there is such a thing as a #8220;premium a black-and-chrome Chrysler is probably it. The has been revised with a dose of automotive jewelry, the intricate headlights to the matte-finish logo adorning the rear

There#8217;s more visual between the T#038;C and its Caravan than ever before, and models benefit as a result. If the upscale treatment is too successful; might be concerned about the van will look like a few kid-related dings and scratches.

there#8217;s that must-have for the new decade: the one-piece dashboard It wasn#8217;t until I rode to the airport in a 2009-model T#038;C I realized just how much the new interior is. It#8217;s driver-focused, personal, it#8217;s surprisingly in dark colors, and it#8217;s far upscale than, say, the Sienna will ever be.

The previous van#8217;s #8220;Stow-n-Go#8221; came in for a fair amount of criticism, so we now have #8220;Super which is much closer to a full-sized seat. A #8220;private-jet#8221; chair arrangement is also and unless you absolutely require the availability of a flat load I strongly suggest you select it.

The new HVAC, and selection of sound are all vastly better than and yes, they have an appearance. As before, the #8220;uConnect#8221; runs a distant second to SYNC, not to mention the myFordTouch, but if current frame of reference is the system in a Sienna or Odyssey you are to think you#8217;ve accidentally the battlestar Galactica. The air vents are by chrome rollers with inlays, the buttons all operate a definitive #8216;click#8217;, and the metal-look items are real metal.

A brief conversation with the team provided some into the hyper-improvement wrought for They know that had some crap materials their cars. They like it any more than you They were working Daimler#8217;s accountants and being to cut every possible penny out of the Cerberus freed them that yoke and now we are seeing the impressive results.

It#8217;s an facile explanation, but I#8217;m to believe.

Fate blessed me an exceptional #8220;media partner#8221; for event, a fellow named Yip who was apparently born without and who was as interested as I was in this minivan#8217;s capabilities. The spec sheet promise: the trio of disappointing V-6 from last year has banished and now the impressive Pentastar through a six-speed automatic.

It#8217;s possible to manipulate the manual-shift function with the of one#8217;s right hand keeping the palm on the wheel very WRC, if you ask me. Several ago, Grassroots Motorsports that a Honda Odyssey keep up with an E-Type Jag an autocross course. What the upscale minivan do?

Even I handicapped myself a bit by pulling standing on the side of the road, until some angry-faced squealed by in a V-6 Chrysler 200, to sixty, and then getting in the van to chase, we quickly tired of down our fellow writers on #8220;fast road drives#8221;. we found a nutcase in an old 528e, with a bungee-corded animal in the trunk, and this guy was on it . He drove a perfect racing line in turn and frequently exited the with some slip in the rear, running into the digits on the straights.

The big Chrysler could have him in a straight line #8212; is a more than acceptably van #8212; so we hung back and worked the corners. How pleasant to that the brakes were up to snuff, the transmission shifted under manual control, and the steering was downright decent.

I a color mag crowing many ago about the fact that the C4 could more than the recommended corner speeds on roads#8230; well, nowadays you can do it in a breadbox. There#8217;s no pitching or to cause nausea, just a suspension with better control than many have. Very few drivers and I mean very few #8212; want to go faster on a curvy than the T#038;C can take

I#8217;m considering taking one to the #8220;Tail of the Dragon#8221; and forcing to give me the wave past.

Of course, ninety-nine percent of customers won#8217;t care how this minivan can chew up a road, and many of them even be particularly interested in dashboards or sound-system #8220;theater Price, reliability, resale and capability are the true benchmarks in segment, and although the T#038;C in the fourth category, the first are up for debate. I#8217;ll leave the statistical lifting to Mr.

Karesh, but my analysis is that the T#038;C shall we say, premium compared to the market-leading Odyssey and The Chrysler people freely that there isn#8217;t margin in these revised for incentives. They#8217;re hoping the market will pay more for a better van.

I don#8217;t if they#8217;re right, but to misquote van driver E. Hemingway, it#8217;s pretty to think so.
