It’s been 30 years and more than 13 million sales since the Chrysler Group launched the world’s first minivan back in 1983, and the company’s current duo will be celebrating in typical industry fashion: When the 2014 Chrysler Town & Country and 2014 Dodge Grand Caravan make their way to dealerships in the fall, they’ll bring ultra-premium 30th anniversary editions chock full of lux features.
“The Chrysler Group is well known as the creator of the minivan, and these 30th Anniversary Editions are the perfect way to celebrate their leadership and longevity in the marketplace,” said Ben Winter, Vice president of Vehicle Engineering. “As the minivan segment and innovation leader, it’s important that we continue to offer tremendous content and value, setting us apart from the rest of the segment.”
Both models—in fact, all Chrysler Group minivans—rely on the automaker’s 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine that’s earned multiple “Engine of the Year” honors and delivers 283 hp and a max tow rating of 3,600 lbs. The 2014 Chrysler Town & Country and Dodge Grand Caravan 30th Anniversary models are then distinguished as follows, with MSRPs still TBD.
