Platinum, SE, Plus vans confirmed

by David Zatz on

In August, we wrote that Chrysler will add new minivans to both the top and the bottom of the price charts for 2015.

A new Limited Platinum actually lowers the top starting price of Chrysler minivans to $40,990, including destination. It includes everything in the 2014 Chrysler Town & Country Limited, but adds a power folding third row seat and the power sunroof — at less than the price of the 2014 Limited. (Other standard features include navigation, Nappa leather, dual-screen Blu-ray DVD, memory seats and mirrors, the SafetyTec Package, heated steering wheel, and heated front and second-row seats.)

At the bottom end, the LX (late availability) will match the Caravan R/T’s starting price of $30,990 (including destination). Standard features include power sliding doors and lift gate, leather, Stow ‘n Go seating, and a  backup camera.

The Touring, S, and Touring-L continue essentially unchanged, at $31,760, $33,990, and $35,460, respectively (including destination). Chrysler models are separated from Dodges not by powertrain or suspension tuning, but by styling and standard features.

Dodge Caravan starts at $21,890.  The AVP and Blacktop continue from 2014, while new SE Plus and SXT Plus models are being set up. The Dodge Grand Caravan SE Plus includes special 17-inch wheels and body-color heated exterior mirrors, with silver accent stitching and piano black accents inside a black interior, bright vent bezels, power second- and third-row windows, and the Uconnect Handsfree Group, for $1,000 more.

The Dodge Grand Caravan SXT Plus takes the SXT and adds power sliding doors and liftgate, “super” center console, unique polished aluminum wheels with black pockets, a bright chrome roof rack, bright window trim moldings, fog lamps, and automatic headlamps. Interior details include black leatherette seats with suede inserts and silver accent stitching, a power 10-way driver’s seat, shiny black accent trim bezels, bright chrome accents, voice command with  streaming audio, and satellite radio, for $1,000.
