Actually the 4.0/6sp Chrysler minivans are the drag strip kings. Edmund’s Inside line did a test and the new GC was the fastest minivan they’ve ever tested.

pit with the high mounted navi screen looks very ergonomic... I like the looks.
Chevy/Chrysler... i hope VW put one of theirs in there... and the 2.0TDI of the new clean generation would make me happy!

Well the interior looks fascinating. I heard that The Routan is available with the Chrysler 3.8 L V6 producing 197 horsepower.

Being based on the Dodge Caravan....this looks sooo much better! When manufacturers share platforms, or have cloned vehicles, the designs should not look alike. Ford and GM were good examples of having the same exact vehicles with different badges on them, up until now at least.
