TCC’s Bottom Line
The Chrysler Town & Country is a more expensive, more plush Caravan--and a great choice for shoppers looking for the best flexibility and features in minivans. With the best flexibility and infotainment in the minivan world, the 2014 Dodge Grand Caravan also satisfies families with great safety scores and good gas mileage. The Nissan Quest may drive well, but its below-average seating and safety put it behind the rest of the minivan options on the road today.
