For their next generation minivan, Chrysler is going down a different route with how they will sell them. Chrysler will drop the Dodge Grand Caravan in the next generation leaving the Chrysler Town & Country to be sold in the US. In Canada, the opposite will happen. Why?
It would certainly be the Dodge Grand Caravan in Canada, but the Town & Country resonates more strongly here in the U.S., so that’s going to be the van in the U.S,” said Reid Bigland, head of Dodge.
Bigland says in the US, the Town & Country outsells the Grand Caravan by two to one. In Canada, it's a different story; the Grand Caravan takes up 70% of minivan sales and is the third-best-selling vehicle in the country.
The next generation Chrysler vans are due out sometime in 2013.
