Chrysler Corporation, newly divorced from Mercedes-Benz and now a privately held company, has announced that it will offer many upgrades to its 2008 model minivan, the Chrysler Town & Country. For the mid-level Town & Country Touring edition of the minivan with the 3.8l engine (approximately US$28,430) consumers can add a “MyGig” entertainment system for a mere US$675.
Included is an LCD with a 20 GB hard drive, a DVD player and lots of MP3 file storage. The LCD screen also serves as the camera display for the included rear back-up camera, a good option for minivans that inherently have “blind spots” directly behind them.
An additional US$1,725 buys two single-disc DVD players and a 2-screen eight-inch DVD system for the second and third row passenger seats. This package includes Sirius radio, and Sirius TV kids’ programming, including Nickelodeon, the Disney Channel, and Cartoon Network. Both Sirius radio and TV are free for the first year, with the subscription for Sirius TV after that renewing at US$7.95 and US$12 for Sirius radio.
