Last days for the Town & Country

by David Zatz on

The Chrysler Town & Country, a minivan whose name dates back to 1941 — but which is harder to type than its replacement, the Pacifica — is in its last months of production, according to dealer notifications.

Production for existing orders runs through the end of February in Canada, where it is a marginal player, and the end of March in the US, where it sells nearly as the Dodge Caravan.

The new Chrysler Pacifica, which many had expected to start production this month, has been pushed back again to April (with Canadian production starting a month or two later).

Confusing some buyers, the existing Dodge Caravan will continue to stay in production through the entire 2016 calendar year, and likely into the second or third quarter of 2017. It is not likely to make it to the 2018 model year, regardless.
