Is this the 2016 Chrysler Town & Country minivan?

In Windsor, Ontario, workers are no doubt already preparing for the plant’s months-long shutdown and changeover to handle the 2016-model-year minivans, due in the first quarter of 2015. They will have to change quite a few things — Chrysler is finally going to a fully independent suspension, and restoring all wheel drive to the options list. As they did with the Pacifica, the company will also do a crossover version — and, while they ready that, will reportedly keep making the current “RT” Dodge Caravans. That will give Chrysler Canada some time to try to get Canadians to switch from the all-conquering Caravan, which owns nearly the entire Canadian minivan market, to the Town & Country.

We have been told that the Chrysler 200 will provide styling cues for the entire Chrysler lineup, eventually — though the 300, whose sheet metal is largely etched in stone (not the galvanized steel and aluminum you’d normally expect), will have to wait a few years before it matches the brand template. JackRatchett did yeoman’s work in preparing this image of a new minivan with 200 styling cues; note the traditional Chrysler “cross-eyed” windshield wipers, which may clear more of the windshield than conventional “both arms moving the same way” blades.
