The Grand Caravan Returns... to Canada...


(Image of Canadian Website)

The Chrysler Voyager enters the 2021 model year with a more important role than ever before, as the direct replacement for the beloved and aged Dodge Grand Caravan. Chrysler re-introduced the Voyager nameplate to the U.S. market last year, as an entry-level version of the Pacifica. The 2020 Chrysler Voyager featured a cheaper starting price than the Grand Caravan.

But in the Canadian marketplace, the Grand Caravan nameplate has proven year after year to be one of the best-selling vehicles in the nation. So it wasn’t a huge surprise when Chrysler ditched the Voyager nameplate in favor of the Grand Caravan nameplate as its entry-level van for the 2021 model year.

As an identical clone to the American 2021 Chrysler Voyager, the 2021 Chrysler Grand Caravan offers two trim-levels to the public. However, instead of dumping the trim-level names for Chrysler Pacifica themed trim-level names like “L” and “LX”, the 2021 Chrysler Grand Caravan carries over its Dodge-based trim-level names of SE and SXT.

FCA must have hated selling them for $26,900, you know they want to charge $89,999 (base model no options) for them. Hopefully they get the pricing under control without a bunch of Ferrari and Maserati guys running things as it was before the merger.

I do like that there is a fascia differentiation to split the two models (GC/Voyager and Pacifica) however the only thing I take issue with is how they've done it. They basically made the old fascia the discount van so it pretty much devalues the resale of every 17-20 Pacifica on the road.

Former '13 D-GC owner up here in Canada. I think they should have badged it Dodge. Dodge is the blue-collar brand here, not a niche, muscle car boutique. While Chrysler needs to shed the base, entry-level (read: cheap) models.
Depends where you are...Here Challenger's,Charger's and 300's are all over...Drag strips are loaded with them as are the streets! Dodge isnt a minivan company in these parts!

Yes, it all depends upon where you live. I rarely ever see Challengers and 300s, 3/4 of the Chargers I see are police cars. Minivans everywhere.

Interested to see how they do for sales against the past DGC's.
They won't be getting any of my money for one, I can't stand the look of it. I'll wait until the next rendition (if there is one).

Looking at the picture.......does the "new" DGC really have the Chrysler emblem on the grille ??
For some reason I thought it was the Chrysler Grand Caravan now.
It is the Chrysler Grand Caravan. Here's the excerpt from the 2020 year end sales charts for Canada:

You obviously don't live near me. Challengers and civie Chargers are everywhere, along with every manner of SUV and pickup, including no small number of new DT Rams. Still see other cars, particularly Toyotas. I live near a bunch of auto mechanic shops in a populated rural area SW of Indy, including a VW guy, and the other big area foreign specialist "Autobahn Service Center," is a Bosch shop a short drive away. Minivans, sure, but of my two sisters with "babies," only one has a minivan (T&C), mostly because with 4 kids, it's the easiest thing to go places when it doesn't involve her horses - 2012 Ram w/"C motor." The other bought a new Journey 2 years ago for her baby, replacing a Patriot. One of her neighbors owns a new DT Ram.

i find that hard to believe.... If there is a Drag Strip near by, chances are there are about 100 Challengers/Chargers within 10 miles. there are tons of them in the DC area. 30 just in my Condo Community.
