The 2017 Chrysler Town & Country has been spied wearing less disguise than ever before.
While the minivan is still dressed in swirly camouflage, we can clearly see the model will feature a more stylish and upscale front fascia that mimics the Chrysler 200. The van also has door-mounted mirrors, an upward sweeping beltline, a tailgate-mounted spoiler, and wraparound taillights.
The upscale styling will carryover to the cabin and reward customers with higher quality materials and a modern design. Nothing is official but the van is expected to have improved Stow 'n Go seats, additional USB ports, and an 8.4-inch Uconnect infotainment system. The Town & Country could also borrow from Honda's playbook and feature a vacuum cleaner in the rear cargo compartment.
Under the hood, we expect to find an upgraded version of the company's 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine. The engine was introduced earlier this year and features a two-step variable valve lift system, a cooled exhaust-gas recirculation system, an upgraded variable valve timing system and new fuel injectors - among other things. In the Jeep Grand Cherokee, the engine produces 295 hp (220 kW) and is six percent more fuel efficient than the previous engine.
Shortly after the model is launched, it will be joined by a plug-in hybrid variant that is expected to be rated at approximately 75 MPGe.
