2016 Chrysler Town and Country diriving

The 2016 Chrysler Town and Country minivan delivers impressive performance specs to Calgary, Vancouver, and Edmonton drivers searching for a capable family-hauler that provides a potent powertrain, impressive economy, and capable handling. To demonstrate all of these points, the experts at Derrick Dodge have created an overview of the Town and Country’s performance features, including its class-leading towing and cargo capabilities. We think it’s clear why Chrysler is #1 in Canada.

2016 Chrysler Town and Country Performance

The Chrysler Town and Country is powered by an engine that was named one of Ward’s “10 Best” three years in a row; the flex fuel compatible 3.6L DOHC 24-valve Pentastar V6 engine with Variable Valve Timing. This engine is paired to a 6-speed automatic transmission and a Front-wheel Drive (FWD) drivetrain and has proven capable of generating 283 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque.

Fuel Economy

The V6 engine isn’t just powerful, it provides powerful efficiency as well, delivering class-leading fuel economy of 14.1L/100 km in the city and 9.5L/100 km on the highway. With the 75.7-litre fuel tank, this means that the Town and Country is capable of taking you and your family up to 643 KM on a single tank of fuel. To help improve fuel economy and cold-weather performance, drivers can also opt for an available electric engine block heater when choosing accessories.

Additional Performance Features

Power and efficiency are important, but they aren’t the only reasons that the 2016 Chrysler Town and Country performance specs delight Calgary, Vancouver, and Edmonton shoppers. Drivers can also look forward to smooth handling, and responsive execution of even emergency maneuvers:
