Yes, Caravan will continue through ’17

by David Zatz on

After analysts claimed that the Dodge Caravan may be dropped early in 2017, Sergio Marchionne said that it would certainly continue through calendar-year 2017. Beyond that, the Caravan’s life is apparently still being debated.

The Dodge Grand Caravan, which costs far less than the Pacifica, is the most popular minivan in Canada — by a huge margin. When the Caravan leaves, Chrysler will add a lower-trim Pacifica, but it can’t come down to Dodge prices. The Dodge’s last major re-engineering was done in 2008, with a refresh in 2011.

Marchionne added that the Pacifica’s slow rise in sales was expected; the minivan costs more than the Town & Country did, but he said it had far better quality, and expected it to be the best seller six months into 2017.
