Is the big Chrysler crossover still in the plan?

by David Zatz on

The public Chrysler product plan shows a large crossover, presumably sharing a great deal with the company’s trademark minivans. Recent statements have the Dodge Caravan — the current model — continuing into the 2017 model year, when the plan shows the crossover taking its place.

Reports from the Nevada dealer presentation claim that there will indeed be a large Chrysler crossover, showing up at just about the same time that the Windsor plant no longer needs to make Caravans. This would help use the massive plant and spread engineering costs, especially since both are to have hybrid versions.

So far, there is no name attached to the crossover; it could be the Chrysler 700, a name used for a surprise Detroit auto show concept, or it could be Pacifica, New Yorker, or just about anything else.

Note: any leaks from the Nevada presentation remain rumors. Product plans change and not everything reported from the event may be accurate.
