    And let's not forget the non-tach on the models below the SXT on the 08-10 models.

    The new vans look really nice!

    I will bet my paycheck that these "slips" are intentional so some buzz,press starts getting created on these new vans. I hope the interiors are outstanding on these vans. Plush carpet,nice headliners, and VERY quiet.

    Wow, really? Those looks like some telephoto shots.. I wouldn't call that the drivers fault at all. Or are they supposed to move them without uncovering the vehicle at all?

    Mainly curious more than anything. Not disputing.

    I would imagine they are supposed to cover them, well, inside.

    I would never assume they are leaking like that. If they want to leak, they put a teaser shot on their own social media.

    Car is to be covered completely anytime it is outside the building. Trust me the pictures do this product no Justice. This is the best one yet

    Thanks for the clarification!

    And I have heard that this one is a winner as well. Looks to be awesome so far.

    Wow, the more I see the more I like it.

    Too bad none of them show off the sliding door track - I'm hoping they have kept them hidden

    Also, is that a sharkfin antenna I see?

    Does that mean that the big antenna mast is no longer around? :)

    EDIT: Twitter picture - https://twitter.com/schmidtcity/status/651384988357820416

    The black one at the front of the line seems to be showing the tail lights...almost Cherokee-ish...as they are cut out of the rear window.

    Wow, looks like a nice, big, full rear window! Just what I like. I don't see any "D" pillar lights either. I hate those.
    I want a white one!!!

    I'm really curious about the rear design too. I'm thinking a mix between the wraparound rear window on the Cherokee, and
    Completely agreed about the Cherokee inspiration, and I love the rear design for that. I think it will be something like this:

    Sorry, thought I had removed that first part. The vehicles I see as inspiration here:

    Jeep Cherokee
    Renault Espace
    Nissan Leaf

    If this looks anything like I expect, Chrysler should count on one additional sale next year. I just hope the plug-in comes before summer vacation. :)

    Yes. Chrysler 2007-10 interiors are the years that will live in infamy!

    I owned a 1998 Chrysler Sebring JXi; ten years later I ended up with 2008 Chrysler Sebring Convertible dealer loaner: OMG, I couldn't believe how they that stripped and cheapened the whole car!

    What was once a handsome, solid-feeling convertible had become an odd-looking, flimsy, thoroughly cheapened version of its former self.

    I see a lot of nice Chrysler 200 traits on these minivan shots, and the side views appear to show some of the substance on 300s, especially on the rocker panels and door handles.

    If the 2011 refresh hadn't happened we would still have our (problem-free) 2007 Caravan. The 2008-2010 were as bad as my Caliber interior-wise, and we didn't want another vehicle with a bad interior. Although the 2011+ isn't a super premium interior, it sure is worthy of purchasing. As a result, we bought a 2011 and have been very happy with it.

    I doubt my parents will be upgrading to a new van anytime soon, unless this one gets stolen or destroyed, but as we've had at least one of every generation, I am very interested to see what the 6th gens are like.

    From here Dodge should add a Charger/Challenger based Magnum and Magnum based Rampage pick-up plus imo have a Charger coupe.

    While this may look like financial suicide market the performance Dodges to Australia (England also) while the 300 gose fwd soft for tax credits and Holden/Ford is getting out the rwd performance and wagon/ute game.

    Again, if you want a 2 door muscle car from Dodge there is already a Challenger on the lot. They are not going to make a coupe version of the Charger just to appease a vocal minority.

    Hence the "IMO" for a Charger coupe.....
    A Charger coupe would be for a luxury/sport crowd (no "base" model) then basic muscle for the Challenger.

    Realistically adding Magnum and Rampage while marketing Dodge in lhd nations ( mostly Australia) is an option FCA can do.
