This minivan is powered by a 3.6-liter V6 engine that produces 283 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque which is combined with a six-speed automatic transmission. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety awarded the Chrysler Town & Country with a top rating of “Good” in moderate-overlap, frontal-offset, side-impact and roof-strength tests.
