The 2011 Chrysler Town & Country

Chrysler Town & Country minivan to be replaced by a new crossover

While speaking with the folks at Automobile magazine, Chrysler Group CEO Sergio Marchionne confirmed that the Chrysler Town & Country minivan would be discontinued in 2014, with that slot in the Chrysler brand lineup being replaced with a new crossover.

Fiat and Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne stated at the 2011 Detroit Auto Show that one of the current Chrysler Group minivans, either the Chrysler Town & Country or the Dodge Grand Caravan, would be eliminated in the near future as part of an effort to avoid product overlap. Sergio has now confirmed that it will indeed be the upscale Chrysler Town & Country that will be eliminated in 2014. In its place will be a mid-sized crossover that will likely offer similar seating and cargo capacities to a minivan but with a more versatile (presumably four wheel drive) drivetrain allowing the new crossover to differentiate itself from the Dodge Grand Caravan. Nothing is known about this new crossover other than the fact that it is expected to arrive in 2014 and we can expect it to follow the same luxurious interior design that is seen in the likes of the Chrysler 300.
