Maximize Fuel Efficiency with the Touch of a Button

 

Chrysler Town & Country drivers have the power to maximize fuel efficiency with just the touch of a button.

ECON Button Chrysler Town and Country

The Chrysler Town & Country is the only minivan in its class+ with an integrated fuel economizer that helps drivers make the most of their mileage. It works economically for you, altering transmission shift patterns to help improve real-world efficiency and stretch your gas budget.

The feature adjusts engine timing and transmission shift points to optimize fuel economy. The transmission will upshift sooner, downshift later and skip select gears during shifts to allow the engine to operate at lower speeds. The torque converter clutch will engage sooner and remain on longer, and the engine idle speed will be lower.

Activating the fuel economizer feature is simple: All you have to do is press the “ECON” button in the center stack, and a green light will indicate the ECON mode is engaged.

Once activated, the ECON mode can help your vehicle achieve an EPA estimated 17 MPG in the city and 25 MPG on the highway.
