Chrysler Introduces Two 2008 Minivan Models

Chrysler Group now launches its minivan models and aims to provide the needs of consumers that are looking for practicality and functionality in a vehicle. Chrysler Group introduces the all-new 2008 model year of the Dodge Grand Caravan and the 2008 Chrysler Town & Country.

These two minivan models come with innovative features for customers. According to Larry Lyons, Vice President - Chrysler Group Front-wheel-drive Product Team: "Chrysler Group engineers continue to bring fresh ideas to the minivan segment. This time, we turn the tables on traditional seats with a technology that lets families have more choices of how to spend their time while traveling. With Swivel 'n Go, second- and third-row passengers can face each other to have a conversation, play games or have a meal on the go."

Lyons added: "Chrysler Group is the first to offer a six-speed transaxle in a minivan. With a new 4.0-liter, V-6 aluminum engine and new six-speed transaxle, the 2008 Chrysler and Dodge minivans offer added performance and a smoother driving experience."
Innovative features and other minivan-first features include the all-new Swivel 'n Go(TM) seat system, integrated child booster seat in the second-row quad chair, one-touch powe r-folding third-row seat, and six-speed transaxle.

The main highlights of the two vehicles are the interior features that provide functionality and comfort for its occupants as well as cargo. Standard interior features include premium multi-function front-row sliding console, second-row in-floor covered storage bins, second-row bench seat with second-row covered storage bins, third-row fold-in-the-floor seating, the exclusive Stow 'n Go(R) seating and storage system, and removable table.

Not only the 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan and the 2008 Chrysler Town & Country offer functionality and comfort. These two minivan models also provide the best entertainment features for its occupants. These features include dual DVD multimedia entertainment system, MyGIG(TM) CD/DVD/HDD/MP3/satellite radio with voice-activated capability, SIRIUS Satellite Radio, SIRIUS Backseat TV, UConnect(R) Hands-free Communication system with Bluetooth(R) technology, mesh side pocket s, 115-volt inverter, and two second-row input/output jacks with a 12-volt power outlet.
On the technical side, Chrysler Group is offering three different powertrain combinations for the Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town & Country. Customers can choose the new 4.0-liter V-6 aluminum engine coupled with a new six-speed transmission, 3.8-liter V-6 aluminum engine mated to a new six-speed transaxle, and a 3.3-liter flex-fuel-capable V-6 aluminum engine coupled with a four-speed transaxle. A catalytic converter similar to Chrysler's former American Motors catalytic converter is also included to reduce harmful exhaust emissions.

Steven Landry, Executive Vice President - Chrysler Group NAFTA Sales, Global Marketing, Service and Parts concluded: "Family transportation has changed since the introduction of the original Dodge Caravan in 1984. The all-new 2008 Chrysler Town & Country and Dodge Grand Caravan set the family transportation standard with an all-new 'grown-up' appearance, five different models, three distinct seating and storage system s, unmatched entertainment systems and the safety consumers expect and deserve. Add in three powertrain options, clever interior features and industry-leading functionality and you have a recipe that will be a favorite with any family."
