The long awaited replacements for the Chrysler minivan twins are still at least 21 months away, according to Fiat CEO Sergio Marchionne.
Speaking to Automotive News, Marchionne said that if the vehicles currently in consumer products got favorable reactions, then production could begin in as little as 21 months. But as it stands, Chrysler isn’t even sure which of the nameplates will survive as a traditional minivan and which will become a crossover with hinged doors.
Regarding plans for the Chrysler lineup to retain the minivan with Dodge getting a crossover, Marchionne said
“This is how I view it, but forget about my preference. Those are big issues, and we need to find out in the marketplace what works. We are having customer clinics right now.”
We thought the matter had been settled already. Evidently, it hasn’t been.
