The 1999 Chrysler Town & Country now comes standard with more equipment than any other minivan offered by Chrysler. Upgrades to this year’s models include leather upholstery, stereo controls mounted on the steering wheel, an armrest on the rear bench seat, and 16-inch chrome wheels and door handles. This is the first year the Limited model is made available.
The 1999 Chrysler Town & Country has a 186-inch length, 77-inch width, 69-inch height, and 113-inch wheelbase. It has a classy design that is modern and appealing to the eyes. The Town & Country features body-colored front and rear bumpers, power heated door mirrors, front fog lights, a solar-reflective windshield, a single sliding side door, removable roof rails, tinted glass on the cabin, and privacy glass on the rear and side.
The interior of the 1999 Chrysler Town & Country is roomy enough to fit seven passengers. In the front, there are low-back bucket seats with height-adjustable head restraints, divided by a storage console. Behind the driver and front passenger are two more bucket seats with height-adjustable head restraints. Behind those is a bench seat that fits three people. This seat rolls out easily to provide ample storage room. The Town & Country features a leather-wrapped steering wheel, full floor carpeting, speed-sensitive power locks, one-touch power windows, front and rear 12-volt auxiliary power outlets, plenty of lights, and an AM/FM stereo with a cassette and CD player included and 10 speakers. Limited models also feature leather seats and dual zone climate control.
Performance & Handling
The 1999 Chrysler Town & Country comes packed with either a 3.3-liter, six-cylinder engine that produces 158 horsepower and 203 lb-ft of torque or a 3.8-liter, six-cylinder engine that cranks out 180 horsepower and 240 lb-ft of torque. Both engines are mated with a four-speed automatic transmission. The 3.8-liter engine obviously provides more power, but whichever motor the Town & Country is carrying, drivers are given sufficient power to cruise easily on the highway and accelerate smoothly during city driving.
The 1999 Chrysler Town & Country is built with an independent strut front suspension with a stabilizer bar and coil springs teamed with a rigid beam rear suspension with leaf springs. This setup provides for a smooth and stable ride, while allowing for easy maneuvering and turning. Steering is predictable and precise, providing tight control.
The 1999 Chrysler Town & Country is equipped with anti-lock brakes on all four wheels. There are driver and front passenger front-impact airbags installed. Rear doors include child safety locks.
