Article by Christian A., on October 6, 2014

Chrysler already announced that it will idle its minivan production at the facility in Ontario, Canada because it has to pave the way for upgrades in the first and second quarters of 2015. The American carmaker is preparing the site for the production of the next-generation minivan, which was confirmed as a Chrysler-only model.

The next-generation Chrysler Town & Country minivan will arrive in late 2015, which is a year earlier than expected. As you may know already, Chrysler revealed in its 5-year business plan that the new vehicle will powered by a petrol engine and a battery pack.

Chrysler’s Al Gardner suggested that a plug-in hybrid minivan could achieve fuel economy that would rival the Toyota Prius, but we need to see those official numbers in order to believe it, right?

Currently, the Chrysler Town & Country is offered with a 3.6-liter V6 engine that generates 283 hp as well as 260 lb-ft of torque and it is bolted to a six-speed automatic transmission.

The vehicle is rated by EPA at 17 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway. Pricing starts at $30,765 for the Town & Country Touring, while the most expensive model, the Town & Country Limited, costs $41,995.
