This year is the year of the minivan for Fiat Chrysler. The Italian-American carmaker is celebrating 35 years of its minivans this year after introducing its first model in late 1983 – and it’s doing so in the best way possible with special edition models of the Chrysler Pacifica and Dodge Grand Caravan.
These Fiat Chrysler special edition minivans will look to
appeal to families of all shapes and sizes. The Pacifica 35th
Anniversary Edition will come available as both a hybrid and a gasoline-powered
model with several trim levels. No matter the trim, this model will have chrome
badging, a special 35th anniversary badge, an all-black interior with
red stiching, and a black grille. You could even get extra equipment like
20-inch wheels and choose from one of ten paint options.
The 35th Anniversary Dodge Caravan will also come
with special badging to highlight its special-edition status, while also
offering 17-inch wheels and a bright grille. Six paint options are available,
along with plenty of additional features that you can choose from.
Fiat Chrysler will begin selling these special edition models this summer. Since it first introduced its minivans, the carmaker has sold more than 14.6 million models – and continues to excel at doing so with a 55% market share in this segment. For more information about how you can bring one of these vehicles home, contact us at Transwest Chrysler Dodge Jeep® Ram.
The Chrysler Pacifica, since entering the market as a
minivan, has continued to impress critics and drivers alike. Arguably, it is
the industry’s best minivan to date, with an available plug-in hybrid
powertrain, luxurious materials, advanced technology, and a spacious interior.
So what could make the Pacifica even better?
All-wheel drive, baby.
And according to rumors from the reputable Automotive News, that’s very likely happening. Right now, the market only has one 4×4 minivan available: the otherwise drab and dated Toyota Sienna. An AWD Chrysler Pacifica would push the minivan even further ahead of the competition and make it an even more enticing offer to families deciding between an SUV and a minivan. All-wheel drive is an especially appealing safety feature in northern states and in Canada, where snowy and icy conditions often lead to a decrease in traction. We know all about that out here in Colorado, of course.
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has not actually confirmed this
news yet, so it is still considered a rumor and nothing more. That means we
have very few details—and the ones we do have not been verified. But if Automotive News is to be believed,
Chrysler is already hard at work on the AWD version, meaning we may see one
here in just a couple years!
