Minivan Spotted in Desert

by David Zatz on

What appears to be the next Chrysler minivan has now been spotted in the desert by Allpar reader Sydric, in 107° Fahrenheit heat.

As it was in Pennsylvania, this minivan was pulling a trailer. It was part of a caravan of vehicles, and part of the grille can be seen — though it may be a mockup or misleading part rather than the final grille, which is expected to resemble that of the Chrysler 200.

The next generation minivans will have a plug-in hybrid-electric system, according to FCA’s chief executive; insiders say it will have the 3.6 liter engine and nine-speed automatic, along with every other new V6 FCA US vehicle aside from the Cherokee (3.2 V6) and some export models (3.0 V6).

David Zatz founded Allpar in 1998 (based on a site he had begun in 1993-94), after years of writing reviews for retail trades. He has been quoted by the New York Times, the Daily Telegraph, the Detroit News, and USA Today. Before making Allpar a full-time career, he was a consultant in organizational psychology.
