    In my opinion it would be a terrible decision to give the SUV a minivan name and the minivan an SUV name... If they were going to keep both names around, why not just keep the T&C as the minivan and the Pacifica as the SUV.

    Agreed. The Town & Country name, regardless of where it started is known as a minivan name by most, these days. I think giving it the name that Chrysler used while it was a re-badged Durango would be better. Whereas that Aspen wasn't the best thing on 4 wheels, and clearly a Daimler laze-out, I think the name would have some recognition. Just as Pacifica did, as one of the earliest CUVs on the road.


    As pre-production or prototype vehicles .. most of the time anyway. FCA seems to have gone away from doing real concepts. Though I was surprised about Portal when it popped up.

    It would be a nice nostalgic nod if they offered that as an option. :D

    You know that Citroen with the ugly plastics bubbles on the sides is quite popular... Maybe a choice between those and wood grain. Now with the mixed insert process with that crosses injection molding with metal stamping, compression molding, and real wood lament for interior components now is the time to scale it up for body inserts and offer REAL Wood on the side of the Chrysler T&C and Wagoneer.

    I would love to see the Wagoneer have a very thin strip (maybe 1cm) embedded in the side door molding.

    They can go thinner than that with the new technology I have seen, basically wood, plastic, metal molded into one component.

    Cactus, was actually sweet... FCA US owns one and lets their design staff take it often on weekends. See it all the time.
