Town & Country could get a reprieve

Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne announced plans to drop the Chrysler Town & Country when the next-generation Dodge Grand Caravan is introduced, but it looks like the automaker is having second thoughts.

The Detroit Free Press is reporting the company is showing four concepts - a Dodge and Chrysler minivan and a Dodge and Chrysler crossover - at consumer clinics to determine which models will be appropriated to each brand. While only two models are slated for production, the company wants to eliminate overlap by approving a minivan for one brand and a crossover for the other.

According to styling guru Ralph Gilles, "We know not all of them [the concepts] will see the light of day, but we spend a lot of time studying scenarios, trying out designs that could work in each scenario so we're ready whichever way it goes."

Chrysler started this American segment nearly 30 years ago with vans that were truly mini. Add a small van. It would sell. You have done it before.
