    Awesome. Should we expect it for the Voyager too, or will this do what we expect it to do and further separate the Voyager and Pacifica?

    Where are you guys getting your info, I sure do hope it happens. I must admit, I’m not a fan of the Pacifica styling but the new blacked out edition is looking a lot better. Hope there is still time to save the 300 and move it back upmarket where it belongs.

    If they don't fix the rear side windows so the bottom of the glass extends farther than the top I won't ever consider one. The rear of the vans look terrible to me the way they are.

    I wouldn't expect that substantial of a change this early. A refresh will probably consist of minor changes to grille, headlights, taillights, and bumper styling details.

    No refresh on the Caravan for 8 years, and it still outsells the Pacifica. Good design holds up well.

    Helpful to have a significant price advantage.

    Not so much good design, its value. $30,000 starting price for an entry-level Pacifica and a fully-loaded Grand Caravan, tell me more people would choose the van with more content. Enter the Voyager, Chrysler took Pacifica's entry-level packages added more content and dropped the price to undercut the Grand Caravan.

    The Grand Caravan is in its final year of production... matter of fact, California emission regulated states won't be seeing anymore Grand Caravans on lots since Dodge sent dealers a memo in November saying that the regulated 13 states were not getting anymore Dodge Journeys as well as Grand Caravans after Novembers orders. So those states will just have inventories of vehicles currently on lots.

    FCA already updated it once in the past two years to meet safety regulations, however, both it and the Journey have come to a point where they won't be able to meet these regulations much longer. Plus they are holding up new important product. FCA has a lot of cash on hand due to the fact they have kept cash cow vehicles like the Grand Caravan, Journey, and the Ram 1500 Classic around so long. But if they could they would build the Grand Caravan forever. Remember the Grand Caravan was originally scheduled to die in 2015, then 2017, then 2018, then 2019... but it looks like 2020 will be its last year.

    So the 2 top selling Dodges will be dropped to make room for “new important product” , I would bet the new product will be more pricey, and a slow sell, if they ever show up. Hate to say it but Hyundai/Kea are selling like hot cakes here in Metro Detroit. DUH

    I love how some almost wear it as a badge of honor that these two old soldiers are going away. They both mint money for the bottom line, and there is nothing announced to replace one of them. Rumors, yes, but again nothing to give dealers to sell right away. I hope this idiocy will come to an end after the merger.
