2002 Chrysler Town & Country Review

Lacks a few quality features of some competitors, though a pleasant minivan to ride in and drive around.

Reviewed by Automotive on

Overview

The 2002 Chrysler Town and Country minivan shows a major redesign from the last model year. The changes don’t end there. The 2002 models add a movable center bin with power points, along with a new power rear liftgate.

Of the many charms inside of the Town and Country minivans, the plush interior seems to be the most popular feature. The classy interior design attracts even the most meticulous of automobile shoppers. The superb standard features attract many buyers, as well. Additionally, Chrysler offers several trim levels and each has its own set of advantages.

For families, the Chrysler minivan seems especially attractive for the optional entertainment system that allows the rear-seat occupants to watch videotapes or DVDs while the parents drive. While passengers enjoy the movie, the driver can relax and focus on the road while the triple-zone climate control takes care of the temperature. Ample cargo room provides another advantage to families or those that carry a lot of sporting equipment or supplies.

The Range

Body Styles: minivan
Engines: 3.3-liter V-6, 3.8-liter V-6
Transmissions: four-speed automatic
Models: Chrysler Town and Country eL, Chrysler Town and Country LX, Chrysler Town and Country EX, Chrysler Town and Country LXi, Chrysler Town and Country Limited

What's New

This Chrysler minivan already seems lavish, but it gets even more luxurious with the 2002 additions. Power pedals, audio for the rear seat, a wireless headset, and a DVD system add to the list of features. Chrysler also introduces a more affordable eL trim.

Exterior

The 2002 Chrysler Town and Country minivans offer a single extended-length model, which measures 200 inches in overall body length. Dual sliding doors on the sides remain available on all of the models. The LXi and the Limited both offer two doors with a power-slide feature, whereas the eX only has one power door on the passenger side. The base has a manually opening door, but the power-sliding version provides an option. An obstacle detection system makes sure nothing gets between the moving doors to cause injury.

Interior

The interior features of the Town and Country include automatic three-zone temperature control, leather upholstery, bucket seats or bench seats, mirror memory, auto-dimming mirrors, a memory driver’s seat, cup holders, and air-conditioning.

Inside the 2002 Chrysler Town and Country you have several options for seating configuration including bench seats, front bucket seats, 50/50-split bench seating, and captain’s chairs with cup holders. Overall, the cargo capacity reaches approximately 167.9 cubic feet with all of the seats removed.

The minivan seats up to seven passengers very comfortably. The optional DVD entertainment system provides enjoyment for the rear-seat occupants.

Performance & Handling

The 2002 Chrysler Town and Country minivan has two engines available that mate with an automatic four-speed transmission. The 3.3-liter V-6 produces 180 horsepower and comes standard on the eL, LX, and LXi. A 3.8-liter V-6 generates 215 hp and comes on the upper-tier trim lines, remaining available as an option for the LXi.

Driving the Chrysler Town and Country provides an enjoyable drive with stability and top-notch handling abilities. The minivan also runs with a superb quietness that feels nicely refined and well-built. Maneuvering in urban driving, as well as on the highway, seems easy, making swift passes and merges. Overall, the Town and Country lives up to expectations of previous Chrysler owners.

Safety

Safety features installed on the minivan include seat anchors for the two back rows, anti-lock brakes, and pretensioners for the front seat belts. These all provide standard equipment for the 2002 Chrysler Town and Country. Side airbags come standard on the Limited, but remain optional for all other models.
