Chrysler Town & Country
BASE PRICE RANGE: $26,500-$38,000*
BODY TYPE: Midsize Minivan
WHAT'S NEW: Fiat management promises a sheetmetal refresh and better interior materials, fit, and finish for '11. What was supposed to be a face-lift could be as substantial as Ford's 2010 update of its Fusion midsize sedan. Expect a vehicle-specific smartphone app that includes product feature demo videos in addition to general vehicle, warranty, service info.
LOOK FOR: Serious powertrain changes make the minivan more competitive with new entries from Toyota and Honda.
SUM UP: Competent in a shrinking segment.
