Background and Identification
The Chrysler has been the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’ (FCA) premium brand competing with Cadillac, Packard, Ford, and Lincoln. Chrysler became FCA’s second top-selling brand and offers luxury and near-luxury vehicles. The Chrysler Town and Country is a minivan produced and marketed by Chrysler between 1990 and 2016 as the company’s flagship minivan. The Town and Country was the third Chrysler minivan introduced and shared its nameplate with the flagship Chrysler station wagon that was produced between 1941 and 1988. Five generations of the Town and Country model line were produced.
Chrysler retired the Town and Country nameplate for Chrysler division minivans after the 2016 model year. The sixth-generation 2017 vehicles took the Chrysler Pacifica nameplate. The Town and Country nameplate was produced almost continuously for 75 years, making it the longest-produced Chrysler nameplate.
Town and Country minivans have been produced in a wide range of trim levels, including several Special Edition trims. Between 1990 and 1995, all Town and Country models came in a single unnamed trim level, generally referred to as the “base” level.
From the mid-1990s, Chrysler vehicles include the silver wings with the original wax seal embedded into an oval shape in the center of the emblem. Town and Country minivans include the name “Town & Country” printed in either capital letters or cursive font across the back of the vehicle.
