Grand Caravan Returns As Value-Based Offering For Canadians...

We recently discussed the changes to the Chrysler Voyager for the 2022 model year. Chrysler re-introduced the Voyager nameplate to the American market as the value-based minivan option, making the popular Pacifica a more upscale offering. Although the Voyager will be offered a fleet-only option for the 2022 model year, its Canadian counterpart will have a different story for the new model year.

The Chrysler Grand Caravan marks the second year that the nameplate will be heralded under the Chrysler banner in Canada. The well-equipped Chrysler Grand Caravan holds its own distinct position in the award-winning Chrysler minivan lineup, offering even more value for those who seek the quintessential family vehicle. For the 2022 model year, the Grand Caravan is about to get even better with more standard features than ever before.

So what exactly is new for the 2022 model year?

Wonder how it will affect production vs demand for 2022

I’m reminded what a bunch of dingalings we’ve had dreaming up the marketing at Daimler/Fiat/stale antis for decades now. Who in their right mind cancels a model that has sold millions and remained a top seller until the day it was dropped, then renames it by another brand and expects anyone to follow their madness? Funny, I don’t see any Buick Malibu’s or Lincoln Taurus’s or Lexus Camry’s floating around. As inept as GM and Ford may be , they haven’t made that inexplicable move yet. But those in charge of Dodge and Chrysler have. And we wonder why we are seeing the waning days of our long cherished Mopar brands.

Well said BWS, this renaming is a joke. Want to pull a name out of the hat from the 50’s or 60’s, maybe, but nothing to recent. First the Pacifica name on the mini van? Wrong! Should have saved it for a new Chrysler SUV, and left it Town and County. Voyager on a Chrysler? Ugh! Now Grand Caravan on a Chrysler. Double ugh!! What’s next, a Dodge Cuda, oh wait some want that!! Sorry Cuda is a Plymouth not a Dodge!

Answer: Datsun
The Dodge and Plymouth Neon were decided in a pre-Daimler Auburn Hills. Daimler introduced us to the Chrysler Voyager before the cappuccino machines were installed in that same Auburn Hills facility. Remember the Prowler? When was it re-branded?

OK, the model names may be different from the parent brands, but I have seen all three vehicles on the market.

The Chrysler GC is a Canadian marker vehicle. The history of the models offered there by Ma Mopar is very interesting. This wasn't the first time for a half Plymouth/ half Dodge creation. Plymouth's death was as much a fault of pre-Daimler mismanagement as it was Daimler's. That is what led to the cheapening of the Town & Country name.

The Dodge Grand Caravan sales slide started with the introduction of the RT generation before FCA.

Right. Exactly. You have reinforced the point I made and I appreciate it. As I said, this has gone on for decades. As you point out , it started with Eaton . There is no surprise.
