A new minivan!? No, just a badging to help separate inexpensive Chryslers from the premium models. A new package for the 300.
Down to only two models, the Pacifica minivan and the 300 sedan, can Chrysler survive? How?
Which Porsche model is by far their best seller? Is it the less expensive Boxster? The iconic and multi-faceted 911? Nope. It's the relative newcomer, the Cayenne. That's a hint.
The Chrysler lineup is thin and half of it is long in the tooth. The Pacifica is good, although an electric motor on the rear axle for hybrid models would allow it to compete better with crossovers and the Sienna AWD. While we're waiting for a refresh of the 300, tune in to Car Chat next week for "How Would I Save the Chrysler Brand."
