A source within Chrysler told us that the new 2011 minivans will have bigger, more comfortable middle seats that are easier to stow, with a single latch; initial pilots for the 2011 S1 models have started at the factory. The instrument panels and door panels are padded and stitched along the top. The new integrated center console is “impressive” and the car will allow for the proximity unlocking and push-button starter. The Pentastar V6 is reportedly to be included, if production can be ramped up in time, along with a six-speed automatic; no word has been passed down as to whether the minivans are going to a single engine and transmission. The front and rear fascia have been redesigned, with LED tail lamps on at least one model.
