The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
8.8
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. Boring isn't in its vocabulary: the 2014 Ford Flex makes owning a family wagon a statement of style.
