Chrysler Town & Country/Chrysler Voyager

Chrysler has always dominated the minivan segment since minivans became a segment at all back in 1984. And despite the onslaught of many viable competitors (see below), the company (along with Dodge) still sells one out of every three new minivans on America's roads.

Chrysler's minivans have the greatest price spread of any company here, with the base Chrysler Voyager starting things out well under $20K (but with very few features and a wimpy four-cylinder engine) and climbing up to about $40K (!) for an extended-wheelbase Town and Country with cold-weather-friendly all-wheel drive, power moonroof and newly available options such as power adjustable pedals and rear-seat DVD entertainment. That's a lot of dough, to be sure, but it's also a lot of minivan.

The more humble of the two, the short-wheelbase-only Chrysler Voyager still offers smart styling, ABS (on LX trim level) and the ability to outfit it with whatever you need, and nothing you don't. The Town & Country is six inches longer, and comes better equipped in base form, but is priced accordingly higher. The Voyager is powered by either a 150-hp four-cylinder or a 180-hp V-6, while the T&C is powered by the 180-hp V-6 or a 215-hp V-6.

And don't forget that all Chrysler products are now covered by a 7-year, 70,000-mile powertrain warranty for that extra measure of peace of mind.
