ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

  • Chrysler is celebrating 35 years of the minivan, a segment that the brand proudly created in 1984.

  • Chrysler, Dodge and Plymouth minivans have reached more than 14.6 million families worldwide.

  • New 35th Anniversary editions of the Chrysler Pacifica, the Pacifica Hybrid and the Dodge Grand Caravan with special badging and interior accents.

Minivan Innovation

The 1984 Dodge Caravan might not be the most exciting or exotic vehicle, but it did completely change the automotive landscape when it came out. It was the very first minivan that was innovative for having the passenger and cargo space of a van with car like driveability. Previously, vans were more like commercial vehicles and the minivan made the van more family-friendly.

Eventually, copycats came about and the minivan segment boomed, becoming the default family hauler. Over the years, Chrysler remained a minivan innovator with the Chrysler Town and Country, Dodge Caravan and Grand Caravan, and the Plymouth Voyager. Today, Chrysler continues to be a leader in the minivan segment with the Pacifica, while still offering the affordable Dodge Grand Caravan.

Marking the Occasion

To mark the occasion, FCA is offering 35th Anniversary editions of the Chrysler Pacifica,the Pacifica Hybrid and the Grand Caravan, both of which made their debut at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show. This appearance package on the Pacifica and the Pacifica Hybrid includes 35th Anniversary badging, a gloss black insert in the front grille and rear liftgate, and a "liquid chrome" Chrysler wing emblem in front. The interior has a classy all-black interior with "cranberry wine" accent stitching on leather perforated seats and throughout the rest of the interior. This package is available on the Touring L, Touring L Plus and Limited trims of the Pacifica and Pacifica Hybrid. The sporty S appearance package can also be added on top of the 35th Anniversary edition

The 35th Anniversary package on the Dodge Grand Caravan has a similar all-black interior with similar red stitching plus a piano black console and 35th Anniversary embroidery in the floor mats. On the outside, it adds a bright grille, 17-in tech silver aluminum wheels, and of course, 35th Anniversary badging. This is available on the SE and SXT trims of the Grand Caravan.

As of this writing, there's no word yet on pricing for the 35th Anniversary package on any of these minivans. You'll be able to order yours this spring with the first deliveries going out this summer.

Chrysler says that its minivans over the years have reached more than 14.6 million families worldwide. These humble family haulers have certainly made their mark on the car industry and although the segment is declining, we have a feeling Chrysler minivans will be around for many more years to come.
