2008 Chrysler Town & Country Touring Minivan 5dr automatic

The 2008 Chrysler Town & Country will be offered in three trim levels, distinguished by both engine size and standard features. The line-topping Town & Country Limited will feature a more powerful, more up-to-date 4.0-liter V6, with the first six-speed automatic transmission offered in a minivan.

The 2008 Town & Country will offer more seating possibilities than ever. The standard configuration is a two-place, second-row bench seat with in-floor storage bins and a third-row bench that folds flat in the floor. A class-exclusive power-folding rear seat is optional. Next up is Chrysler's familiar Stow 'n Go option, which features second-row captain's chairs that also fold flat into the floor. Yet the big news is a new seating package called Swivel 'n Go.
Chrysler says the 2008 Town & Country sports 35 new or improved features and more storage options than ever, including a new, removable sliding front console that is large enough to store a purse. Optional features are many, starting with remote starting, stain-resistant, odor-resistant, anti-static cloth fabric, a removable flashlight in the rear quarter panel, second- and third-row retractable sun shades, power sliding doors and liftgate, movable, pinpoint LED reading lamps and dual- or tri-zone heating and cooling.
Safety equipment in the 2008 Town & Country will match the class benchmark, starting with six airbags: front-impact and side-impact airbags for front passengers and curtain-style head-protection airbags for all three rows of seats. Electronic stability control with traction control and brake assist is also standard. A rear back-up camera, a rearview interior conversation mirror, and a back-up warning system will be available.
The 2008 Town & Country's line-topping engine is the new overhead cam 4.0-liter V6 recently introduced in the Chrysler Pacifica, matched with a six-speed automatic transmission. In the Town & Country, this engine will deliver 240 horsepower and 253 pound-feet of torque, and it should be an improvement over existing engines in both performance and smoothness.
The 2008 Chrysler Town & Country returns with numerous new or improved features including Swivel ‘n Go seating system, rear back up camera, voice-activated navigation system, and more storage areas. All models come powered by either a 3.3L, 3.8L, or 4.0L V-6 engine, paired with a four-speed or six-speed automatic transmission. Standard amenities include all power conveniences, keyless remote entry and vehicle information center.
The Limited adds as standard a air filtration system, remote control engine start, and memory settings for the seats, mirrors, pedals and radio. An Entertainment Group Package is available on the Limited model offering DVD player, wireless headphones, two monitors, remote control and Sirius streaming video. The Chrysler Town & Country Touring was last redesigned in 2008; no information is currently available on upcoming changes.
The 2008 Chrysler Town & Country Touring trim offers a more powerful engine, in the form of a 197-horsepower, 3.8-liter V6, as well as a six-speed automatic transmission (in place of a four-speed transmission for the LX) and a more extensive list of standard features. Power sliding side doors, a power rear liftgate, second-row Stow 'n' Go bucket seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, illuminated vanity mirrors, heated exterior mirrors and power-adjustable pedals are among the standard features added to the Touring trim.
Drivers can choose from a number of optional features for the Town & Country Touring, including new Swivel 'n' Go seating, which enables passengers to swivel the second-row captain's chairs 180 degrees to face the third-row seat. The Swivel 'n' Go seating package also includes a removable table, which installs between the second and third rows of seats. Other options include leather-trimmed bucket seats for the first and second row, heated seats for the first and second row, a dual-screen DVD system, and a rear backup camera.
Features like four-wheel antilock brakes, emergency Brake Assist, and an Electronic Stability Program help improve the Town & Country Touring's traction, stability, and handling. Overall, drivers note that the Town & Country Touring handles better than many SUVs, though braking and acceleration could be improved. Some drivers have also noted that the Town & Country has suffered from reliability issues in the past, although the vehicle's reliability has improved in recent years.
