    The Windsor, Ontario plant that builds all Chrysler and Dodge minivans is currently down for a thorough refitting, which will clear out ancient equipment and presumably use all available space when the minivan line is complete: standard, plug-in hybrid, and crossover (some believe a large car will also be added, as the Volkswagen Touareg shared with the Volkswagen Phaeton).

    Considering that it is only May of 2015 and the plant is currently being updated...

    I notice Sienna is touting AWD and better stopping distance than a Jeep Grand Cherokee (75 ft shorter I think).
    Just started seeing this commercial on TV.
    I am interested in seeing what FCA will do with the AWD, when it arrives. Will it be only on the top model? I hope not.

    How much more can they possibly stretch CUSW!?

    EDIT: Wait, why did I just ask that stupid question?

    K-Car. LOL

    I dunno, but they didn't stretch it enough for 200.

    Bet you can fit a Wrangler under the Camo, but I guess it would have a taller stance

    Toyota is running the Sienna AWD vs. Odyssey/Town & Country commercial here relentlessly. Seems they don't realize spring has finally sprung here in the Northeast and people really don't want to see commercials about minivans scaling a 25% snow-covered grade. The last thing we want to see or think about after this winter is more snow.

    I'm hoping the Chrysler engineers came up with a creative way to offer AWD without sacrificing Stow'n Go in those models. That would be pretty awesome.

    Does the next minivan have the new “Giorgio” platform and architecture?

    I do not believe so....it is based on CUSW, same as Dart, 200 and Cherokee.

    Just got told that this shares the wheelbase of the VM, but is 8-9" wider in track....

    VM?!?

    The thing is, they can keep the 200 or Cherokee packaging forward of the firewall and change all the rest.

    Just for a size comparison, not suggesting that they are using the same platitechture...

    If it starts at $26,000 and follows the 200's model for standard equipment, upscale interior touches, etc., it will be a hit.
