Family-centric functionality heats up in competition between Chrysler Town & Country, Honda Odyssey Ingram Park CDJ weighs strengths of two industry favorites
SAN ANTONIO, April 1, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The struggle of finding a family-centric vehicle that actually caters to all members of the family has been difficult in the past; however, automakers have started to recognize the importance of creating vehicles that accommodate both drivers and their passengers. Two strong contenders in the minivan class are testing the limits of their class to provide the functionality drivers need with the style and innovation they crave. Ingram Park CDJ is stacking up its 2014 Chrysler Town & Country against the 2014 Honda Odyssey to determine which vehicle provides the more balanced performance.
The 2014 Honda Odyssey rolls out of the gate with the 3.5-liter SOHC i-VTEC V-6 engine, which allows the minivan to generate 248 horsepower, while also earning an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-estimated 28 mpg highway fuel economy. Offering up to 148.5 cubic feet of interior storage space as well as the highly discussed HondaVAC, the vehicle ensures its features keep the family unit in mind.
While the Odyssey's fuel rating is impressive for its class, the vehicle lacks power under the hood where the 2014 Chrysler Town & Country boasts it. When the Chrysler minivan utilizes its award-winning 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine with Flex Fuel capabilities, it produces a best-in-class 283-horsepower performance while earning an EPA-estimated 25 mpg highway fuel rating.
The Odyssey takes the lead for efficiency, but the Town & Country makes up for its shortcomings in that department by offering technology each member of the family can utilize. Features like SiriusXM Travel Link, Uconnect and a dual-screen Blu-ray and DVD Entertainment System give the Chrysler van the balance active families are searching for. When not a single passenger has to make a sacrifice for comfort, entertainment or safety, the vehicle has performed its duties.
For more information on the 2014 Chrysler Town & Country, drivers are able to test drive the vehicle at Ingram Park CDJ. The dealership can be contacted online or by phone at the driver's convenience.
