2012 Chrysler Town & Country

November 1, 2011 , Auburn Hills, Mich. – The newest Chrysler Town & Country and Dodge Grand Caravan minivan models have been named Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety for 2012. In addition to receiving top scores in rollover tests, both minivans achieved Good ratings in the areas of frontal, side and rear crash protection.

Additionally, to be considered, vehicles must have standard electronic stability control systems.

For 2012, both minivans offer more than 40 standard or available safety features. Front seat mounted airbags, three-row side curtain air bags, driver-side knee blocker air bag and all-speed traction control are among the standard safety features.

Both models also include an available SafetyTec group with features including ParkSense rear park assist, Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Path detection.

“Safety-conscious parents shopping for a family hauler should be pleased with today’s minivan choices,” said David Zuby, the Institute’s chief research officer.

Today we bring you another edition of the Brandl Media Minute. Follow along with yours truly as I break down how to lower and remove your spare tire on your Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town and Country. A few weeks back I showed you how to lower the spare, today we are focusing on how to lower your spare with the Super Console. The Super Console is a new center console that can be found on newer Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town and Countrys. It connects to the dash, eliminating the space in between the console and dash, which is where you pop the cap to access the crank to drop the spare.
