Next-generation Minivan (2016)

Chrysler's next-generation minivan will wear a Chrysler Town and Country badge and be launched as a 2016 model, according to industry experts.

Production will begin in 2015 at the Windsor Assembly Plant, which will also assemble a new large, luxury Chrysler crossover utility vehicle the following year, said Haig Stoddard, industry analyst at WardsAuto Information Products.

The CUV will be launched as a 2017 model, he added.

Stoddard said his conclusions stem from "industry sources" as well as information in the WardsAuto/Auto-motiveCompass Global Production Forecast.

Chrysler refused to comment on its plans for the minivan.

"We haven't made any announcements about future products," said LouAnn Gosselin, spokeswoman for Chrysler Canada.

Wards and AutomotiveCompass recently forged a partnership to produce and publish global automotive tracking and forecast databases.

Stoddard said the new CUV would likely be similar to the Chrysler Pacifica, a luxury mid-size crossover wagon assembled at the Windsor plant from 2003 to 2007.

"It might not necessarily be a luxury vehicle," said Stoddard.

"It would probably border, based on price, between a large CUV or large luxury CUV. If the starting price is above $38,000 in today's market it would be a large luxury."

The closest vehicle in Chrysler's current lineup would be the Dodge Durango SUV.

Such a vehicle would compete with the Buick Enclave, GMC Acadia, Acura MDX, Lincoln MKT and Infiniti JX, said Stoddard.

Currently, the Windsor Assembly Plant produces the Dodge Grand Caravan and higher-priced Chrysler Town and Country minivans on three full shifts. The plant employs more than 4,500 hourly workers who assemble about 1,500 vans a day.
