Chrysler introduced a facelift for its Town&Country MPV in 2004 for the 2005 model year, and apart from a slightly restyled exterior, it came with intelligent interior solutions.
Back in the mid-2000s, many carmakers in the North American market highly contested the large minivan segment. Since the leading Premium brands ignored that, apart from the R-Class from Mercedes-Benz, Chrysler decided to give it a go and produced an up-market version of the Dodge Grand Caravan. And it was pretty successful.
The main difference was noticed on the outside in the headlights, which featured a larger area in front of the high-low beam lamp and narrowed on the sides. Also, the bumper had to be reshaped and received round foglights. Other than that, there were no significant exterior differences.
Inside, on the other hand, the carmaker's design team burned the midnight oil and came up with a smart solution, such as the Stow'n Go system for the seats. That allowed the user to fold the second and third rows of seats and hide them inside the minivan's floor. Thus, the car was quickly transformed from a people carrier into a utility vehicle in a matter of seconds. Moreover, the rear bench could serve as a tailgate bench for three. From a safety point of view, Chrysler added a knee airbag for the driver and, most importantly, Bluetooth connectivity. In addition, the carmaker offered a navigation system.
Under the hood, the car used some of the previously V6 engines, paired with a four-speed automatic transmission. However, it lost the more powerful 215 hp version due to the E85 fuel compatibility. It also lost the AWD option for the long-wheelbase version, which remained available only on the shorter model.
