2014 Chrysler Town & Country comes into focus

Could spawn a crossover

The Chrysler Town & Country isn't the most exciting vehicle on the market, but new details are starting to emerge about the redesigned model that is currently under development.

Speaking at a recent event, Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne said the minivan will ride on a new platform that can underpin additional models and be outfitted with all-wheel drive. He neglected to mention the Ram Lifestyle pickup, but revealed a crossover was under consideration.

Marchionne also stated, "We need to be more competitive, so we made it a priority to replace it faster than we originally thought." This means the Town & Country could be launched as early as 2013 (as a 2014 model).

We in SA have the 3.8LV6 and the 2.8CRD in the Grand Voyager form. I hope Chrysler will listen to comments made by many SA's bring in a basic vehicle without the frills, you will sell more the current is just out of our price range!!! I am diving my 5th Voyager of which one was brand new in 2004, all other second hand. I also hope Dodge bring or consider bringing their Dodge Caravan to SA in RHD, that seems to be in a basic model, no frills, let us also have some peak into the new shape we can expect, I hope it looks nothing like the Fiat Pablio having a Fiat boss now?????? Horrible Horrible, reminds of the song Trouble Trouble by Taylor swift !!!!!

I hope they improve the brakes and suspension. I drove a rented voyager on a family trip last year and it just felt scary. I know it's a van and as such isn't expected to handle like a sports car, but it rolled like a boat and the brakes were WAY underpowered. As in the "I thought I was going to rear-end an 18 wheeler" sort of underpowered.

Somewhere a bunch of guys with a huge net and a panel van is looking for the idiot who designed this 1980 re-incarnation of what the USA used to be....

They spent 600 million for the development of the last 2010 model (some outrageous amount) and it looks dated, cheap, and unresponsive to changing market requirements. And then they will use this same platform for a unibody dodge Ram no one wants? Chrysler will never make a good product.

Erm, is it meant to just be a Chrysler Voyager with different bumpers?

In the US it is known as a Town & Country and other markets its the Grand Voyager. Obviously, the pics are of this year's vehicle and the article refers to its replacement in 2014. And Yes, it does have new bumpers, interior trim - minor facelift only.

As a Chrysler dealer it is some good news, however, the current Grand Voyager (in Oz)does still sell well. We are waiting for the new 3.6V6 and expecting increase in sales once we have that engine.

I doubt that this blog will have much interest in this vehicle.
