The ride, comfort, and cabin noise are as different as night and day from the outgoing Town & Country. It's quite fun and peppy with the new 9 speed. They have refined refined refined the model! Love almost everything about except for the light interior piece that is right where you step to get in and out. It seems like a horrible color choice. Hopefully your kids have long arms if you expect them to be able to interact with the rear Uconnect Theater.
