Minivans Celebrate 35th Anniversary with Special Edition Models 


February 11, 2019 - FCA is celebrating the 35th anniversary of the minivan as the originator and leading innovator in the segment it created in 1984.

New for 2019, the 35th Anniversary edition is available on Chrysler Pacifica, Pacifica Hybrid and Dodge Grand Caravan models, featuring new badging, an all-black interior with Cranberry Wine accent stitching, and upgraded content, in addition to the already extensive list of standard equipment.

The first modern minivan rolled off the Windsor (Ontario) Assembly Plant line on Nov. 2, 1983, sparking a new segment of people movers that rose in popularity very quickly, transporting millions of moms, dads and kids, and becoming part of their families.

FCA minivans are now appealing to a new generation. Kids who used to ride in the second row are now in the driver’s seat, making memories with families of their own.

Minivans Special EditionThe Chrysler Pacifica and Pacifica Hybrid features a 35th Anniversary badge and a Liquid Chrome Chrysler Wing badge with a Gloss Black insert on the front fascia grille and rear liftgate.

With more than 14.6 million minivans sold globally since 1983, FCA tops the segment, selling twice as many minivans as any other manufacturer in the past 35 years, and remains the leader with 55 percent market share in 2018–the highest ever attained.

“We created the minivan segment, we’re proud of our place in it, and we will continue to innovate like we’ve done with the first hybrid minivan, industry-exclusive Stow ‘n Go seating, Uconnect Theater with 10-inch touchscreens in the second row and much more,” Steve Beahm, Head of Passenger Car Brands, Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and Fiat–FCA North America, said.

FCA invented the modern minivan in 1984 with the Dodge Caravan and Plymouth Voyager. The first luxury minivan, the Chrysler Town & Country, debuted in 1989. The company still leads the way with the best, most innovative vehicle to move people and things–115 minivan-first innovations and 14.6 million minivan sales later. Through all six generations of the minivan, FCA has continued to deliver versatility, functionality, safety and technology.
