The Chrysler Town & Country (Chrysler Minivan) is set to get a complete redesign for 2017 model year. The next-gen 2017 Chrysler Town & Country will be unveiled at the 2016 North American International Motor Show in Detroit in January, the company has confirmed. The standard variant will go on sale first and the plug-in hybrid variant will follow months later.
The Chrysler Town & Country’s Dodge-badged version, the Dodge Caravan, will probably have to wait for its redesign though. Employees at FCA’s Windsor Assembly Plant where the Dodge Grand Caravan is built, have told the publication that the current Dodge Grand Caravan will continue being sold for the forseeable future. The Dodge version will be discontinued when the production of the Chrysler version ramps-up and based on the strength of demand.
Back to the next-gen Chrysler Town & Country, it will be the brand’s first plug-in hybrid. According to an earlier report, it will be one of the brand’s many new hybrid models set to roll-out in the coming years. A full-size crossover is also in the future plans and it will also have a plug-in hybrid variant, as per this report.
