Chrysler Group to Introduce Four, New 2002-MY Minivan Models
For the 2002-model year, the Chrysler Group will add four new additions to its ‘e’ family of minivans: Chrysler Voyager eC, Dodge Caravan eC, Chrysler Town & Country eL, and Dodge Grand Caravan eL. Production for the new models will begin in late-September 2001 and will arrive in Chrysler and Dodge dealerships by October.
Chrysler Town & Country eX and Dodge Grand Caravan eX were launched in mid-March 2001. To date, more than 17,000 eX units have been sold.
Starting at $16,995 (which includes $640 for destination), Chrysler Voyager eC and Dodge Caravan eC are standard-wheelbase, four-cylinder, five-passenger minivans. A short list of optional equipment includes a seven-passenger seating package, rear defrost, adjustable pedals, power locks, and side air bags.
In addition to its new eC models, Chrysler and Dodge will offer eL models that will be positioned as entry-level long-wheelbase minivans. Chrysler Town & Country eL and Dodge Grand Caravan eL are targeted directly at the Honda Odyssey LX and will offer the following standard features: 3.3-liter V-6 engine, quad seats, minivan-first split 50/50 Easy Out roller seats, and first and second row storage trays.
