Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has earned a following for their prized minivan product. In 2018 alone, FCA oversaw 270,000 minivans drive away from dealerships; that number represents 55 percent of the total market share. This is a marketplace invented by FCA originally so many years ago when the original minivan debuted, the original 1984 classic Dodge Caravan and the Chrysler Plymouth Voyager, which is one of the brands under the FCA umbrella. With 35 years of heritage and innovation have led to the 35th Anniversary Edition 2019 Dodge Grand Caravan and 2019 Chrysler Pacifica.

The debut for both vehicles will be at the 111th Annual Chicago Auto Show (February 9th through February 18th, 2019).The nation’s largest and longest-running auto show spans over a million square feet of room and will include these two new special edition models. What will be included with each of these special edition vehicles? Let us share.

The 35th Anniversary Packages In Detail

Both the 2019 Chrysler Pacifica and 2019 Dodge Grand Caravan 35th Anniversary editions will be available for customers with unique 35th Anniversary badging on floor mats, the front grille, and liftgate. The accommodations will carry an all-black interior with Cranberry Wine stitching on the steering wheel, seats and door trim. For the Chrysler Pacifica, a package will be available for the Pacifica Touring L, Touring L Plus and Limited trims as well as an option for the Pacifica Hybrid. For the 2019 Dodge Grand Caravan, the package is available for the SE and SXT trims. Both brands will carry the trusted 3.6-Liter Pentastar engine inside.

More On the 2019 Dodge Caravan

With comfortable and roomy seating for seven passengers, the 2019 Dodge Grand Caravan also has good fuel economy with 17 city and 25 highway MPG. The perks of owning one include a remarkable 40GB hard drive (which can hold up to over 8,000 songs for example), a modest-sized 6.5-inch touchscreen display paired with 6 speakers. For extra storage, Stow ‘n Go seating makes it easier for extra room. Stow N’ Go seating allows owners to create more space by simply moving third or second-row seats into the floor. With an interior that provides more than 140 cubic feet of cargo volume when the second and third-row seats are folded down. The starting MSRP of the Dodge Grand Caravan is $26,650 (plus destination fee).

The 2019 Chrysler Pacifica has been the most-awarded minivan in the segment with multiple quality awards each year since it debuted in 2017. The most recent award was winning the Family Vehicle of the Year award, again, by Cars.com. The Pacifica has the same Stow N’ Go seating and seats up to seven passengers. The 2019 Hybrid model does not have Stow N’ Go for the third row, but does provide over 100 available safety and security features and provides up to 33 miles of driving without the use of any gasoline. Powered by an electric battery, the Pacifica Hybrid helps owners save money and give owners more bang-for-their-buck. The 2019 Chrysler Pacifica begins at $26,995 MSRP (plus destination fee). The 2019 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid starts at $39,995 MSRP (plus destination fee).
