Comments Off on 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town & Country – Back to Boxy
The 5th generation Chrysler minivans due out around the end of September 2007 plan on knocking some wind out of the competition. They will offer segment firsts, such as a six-speed transaxle, LED interior lighting and a one-touch power folding 3rd row seat (60/40 split bench). Prospective buyers will have their choice of five different models, three seating and storage systems and three V6 engines but short wheelbase versions are no longer available.
The CX-9 is a "large" Crossover SUV - not the size of the Tahoe-sized GM Lambda Crossover SUVs like the GMC Acadia, Saturn Outlook and Buick Enclave, but still big enough to have a relatively comfortable 3rd row seat.
Using data from AutoPacific's national Vehicle Satisfaction research and the IntelliChoice Best Overall Value information, AutoPacific and IntelliChoice have developed the Motorist Choice Award - a unique tool that can be used by consumers to help them sort through the myriad of choices in today's automotive marketplace.
