When it comes to talk about larger vehicles in the Fiat-Chrysler line-up lately, that talk is mostly around the new Chrysler Pacifica and what It is doing for the minivan segment. One of the most popular larger vehicles that remains popular with the buying public but doesn’t generate the press is the Dodge Grand Caravan. What is next for the Grand Caravan now that the Pacifica seems to be stealing its thunder.
That’s the question The Ellsworth American is pondering. The Grand Caravan was originally supposed to be ending its production at the end of the year and the Pacifica would be taking over as the one-true minivan for Fiat Chrysler. It was all part of a plan to try to limit the various brands from undermining themselves in various segments. That plan has been walked back a bit though. Now the Grand Caravan will get another year on its life, but once that year is up, no one is certain what will happen next.
The Ellsworth American doesn’t have any major leak or idea of what is to happen next. What follows the recent history of the Grand Caravan is a love letter to time spent with the Grand Caravan and a reminder of why it may not be time to let go of it. If there was ever a writer making a case for a vehicle to stay on the market, it is in this lovely tale of a “final ride” with the Grand Caravan. Check it out and think if it may be a good reason to keep it around.
