Industry Insights

 
During the months of January and February, industry efforts are typically focused on popular 4x4 and AWD vehicles to coincide with consumer winter-shopping habits. Starting in March, the focus expands to include the important minivan segment. The Windsor-built Chrysler Pacifica, Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid and Dodge Grand Caravan collectively account for more than half of the Canadian minivan segment (58.5 per cent). With 14.6 million minivans sold globally since 1983, FCA has sold twice as many minivans as any other manufacturer over the past 35 years. 

To mark the milestone, FCA Canada is offering 35th Anniversary edition minivans, which feature new badging, an all-black interior with Cranberry Wine accent stitching and upgraded content on 2019 Chrysler Pacifica, Pacifica Hybrid and Dodge Grand Caravan models, available this summer.

Additionally, to drive awareness for Chrysler and Dodge minivans, FCA Canada has rebranded its dealer showrooms as Canada's Minivan Store.
