Minivans

Minivans: Dodge Caravan, Plymouth Voyager, Chrysler Town & Country

1984 to 2002 Chrysler and Dodge minivans

2017 Chrysler Pacifica
2011-16 minivans

Chrysler invented the minivan - twice. In Europe, Chrysler worked with Matra to develop what became the Renault Espace, which became Europe's most popular minivan - starting in the same year as the Plymouth Voyager and Dodge Caravan. While there had been small vans in the past, these are generally acknowledged to be the first minivans (see minivan history and development).

From 1987 through 2007, there were standard minivans, and the longer-wheelbase "Grand" versions. In 2008, only the long wheelbase was left. Engines have ranged from a carbureted 2.2 liter four-cylinder to the current Pentastar V6, with VM Motori diesels sold in Europe.
