Dodge Grand Caravan survived and it will be present for one more year. That means the 2019 model is certain and it should arrive anytime soon. However, it seems the 2020 Dodge Grand Caravan won’t arrive on the markets.
You all know about Ford’s plan to kill its lineup of cars. Literally, everything that is not a crossover-SUV or a pickup truck will soon see the end of production. Now, Chrysler thinks the Blue Oval’s strategy is a smart piece of business and will follow the same path.
FCA Five-year Plans
We’ve already heard about the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles will have to make some cuts. The market is dominated by the crossovers and SUVs at this moment and there is no point to focus on sedans, hatchbacks, and minivans. However, all of the carmaker’s car models survived and all of them will be available in 2019. That includes the Chrysler 300 and Dodge Journey models, besides the 2020 Grand Caravan.
Interestingly, FCA recently presented its five-year plan that obviously includes those three models. Now, it seems that the car models are very uncertain for 2020. At this moment, Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger are safe. The “twins” will continue with the production and will stay on the same platform for years to come.
When it comes to the minivan segment, the 2020 Dodge Grand Caravan is very unlikely. Chrysler has the last word but it seems the end is near. Some auto industry analyst were saying the end of Caravan makes perfect sense.
Dodge Grand Caravan sales
Dodge Grand Caravan’s sales are taking less than five percent of the market. In the last two decades, Chrysler owned almost 17 percent of the market. It is clear the sales of the cars and minivans are significantly dropping.
On the other hand, the sale of the crossovers is sky-high at the moment. Over the 40 percent of the global sales are the sales of the crossover models. And while the crossover segment offers different sizes, shapes, designs, and performances, the minivan segment can only offer a different level of luxury.
2020 Chrysler Pacifica is one of the most famous minivans
It will be interesting to see what will exactly happen with the 2020 Dodge Grand Caravan model. Moreover, the Journey and Chrysler 300 models are very uncertain. That leads us to the 2020 Chrysler Pacifica, one of the most famous minivans on the planet.
Till now, Pacifica seems to be one of the most popular company’s models. There is no way the FCA will cut the Pacifica in the near future. The latest rumors are saying the FCA could install Pacifica’s platform into the Grand Caravan model and make it more affordable. It seems like the only way out for the 2020 Dodge Grand Caravan.
