The current-gen Dodge Grand Caravan will go out of production in 2016, but that doesn’t mean that the minivan will be discontinued. According to a new report from Automotive News, the people-mover will enter next-generation following the current one’s discontinuation.
An internal company document leaked to the publication states that the all-new Grand Caravan will be launched as MY2017 model. It will be built alongside the next-gen Chrysler Town & Country (codename: RU) which will go into production on February 29, 2016 at FCA’s facility in Windsor, Ontario.
The 2016 model year Chrysler Town & Country will be produced during a short run beginning in early August and ending in mid-February, says the report, before FCA switches to the all-new version. The 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan, likewise, will be produced from August 2015 to August 2016. Its MY2017 model is scheduled to go into production on August 23, 2016. It carries the same model code as the MY2015 model, suggesting that the model won’t see a complete overhaul.
