Chrysler Town & Country History
The Chrysler Town & Country was first introduced in 1989 as the market began to focus on producing more vehicles that could fit large families comfortably. Since its introduction, the Town & Country has established itself as a top choice in the minivan segment, making it the perfect car for anyone looking to haul around a pee-wee football team.
The Town & Country minivan was first introduced the market in 1989 alongside the Plymouth Voyager and Dodge Caravan. Produced at Chrysler’s St. Louis, Missouri, assembly plant, the minivan was considered the Chrysler Corporation’s most luxurious option in its segment, a title that it continues today.
Though the Town & Country was available at first with the option of only two different paint colors—white and black— and wood-panel siding, it has come a long way since then. Now in its fifth generation, Chrysler’s top minivan has said “Goodbye!” to the wood-paneling and “Hello!” to four new trim levels with multiple different body color options. There’s even a plug-in hybrid powertrain in the making.
