Chrysler Town & Country Named “Best Family Hauler”


For seven years in a row, the Detroit News has given their annual “Best Family Hauler” award to the original minivan.  Handed out at this year’s North American International Auto Show, the trophy went to the 2012 Chrysler Town & Country for being exceptionally capable at hauling entire crews and all their stuff across seemingly endless miles.  Unlike other awards, the Detroit News’ is given out by a selection of judges composed of honest-to-goodness readers.  Industry professionals need not apply as true families have recognized the Chrysler institution as being the best choice for keeping things efficient, versatile and fun. 

“Chrysler has been the lead innovator in the minivan segment for over 20 years, and the Detroit News Readers’ Choice Award for Best Family Hauler demonstrates that consumers continue to take notice,” said Saad Chehab, Head of Chrysler Brand.  A classic design, more potent 3.6 liter V6 and innovative features such as Stow ‘n Go fold-away seating all add up to much more realistic way to pack multiple kids, pets, stuff and things across cities, towns and states.  With safety a high priority for any family, the Town & Country carries with it more than 40 safety features.  Blind Spot Monitoring and Cross Path detection are a few new items that have helped keep the ultimate minivan relevant for the past seven years.
