Dodge discontinues production of Caravan minivan

May 26, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

The first information about this appeared last summer. However, Dodge had to wait a bit with this decision.

Dodge announced that it will no longer release its Caravan minivan. This was officially announced on Tuesday, May 26. Recall that the assembly of this car was carried out at the facilities of the plant in the Canadian city of Windsor. In the summer of 2019, the Automotive News publication reported that in the middle of spring 2020, the Dodge Grand Caravan would cease to assemble.

He should be replaced by a new model of the Chrysler Voyager, on which we will already see the nameplate from Chrysler. However, the coronavirus epidemic made adjustments, and the production of a new minivan had to be postponed. Along with this, the Dodge Caravan was still produced to offset the costs of the brand. However, starting in the summer, its release will cease completely. Production of the new Chrysler Voyager will be launched at the same plant in Canada. They expect more sales from the novelty than the Dodge Grand Caravan has shown recently.

However, Dodge also sold well – for the first quarter of this year, official dealers were able to sell 24,931 such a car.
