Chrysler to ax the Grand Caravan image

The North American based automaker Chrysler will be axing the Dodge Grand Caravan, but the company didn’t announce any reason for this action.

The Dodge Grand Caravan will soon leave the production line. Rumors are saying that the model in question will be assembled until late 2014 or even early 2015, but it will eventually leave the production line for good. The announcement has been made by Chrysler recently. However, the carmaker didn’t offer any explanation for why the Grand Caravan will be discontinued. Chrysler will keep the Town & Country and a new model is expected to be introduced in 2016.

The current generation of the Grand Caravan has been unveiled back in 2007 and it’s related to the Town & Country, to the Grand Voyager, to the Ram Cargo Van and to the Volkswagen Routan. The model in question is offered with a choice of five engines, the most powerful one being the 3.6 liter with its 283 HP. Transmission options include a 4-speed automatic and a six-speed automatic. The Grand Caravan was officially unveiled, in the 2008 model year, during the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit. Its exterior design is styled by Ralph Gilles.
