Jeremy at The Car Lounge Forums managed to snap eight great spy shots of the next Dodge Caravan undergoing hot weather testing, many of them using the subtle shoot-your-rearview-mirror technique. Despite the camo, it's clear that the minivan's design takes cues from Dodge SUVs like the Durango and Nitro with a bold crosshair grille and boxy shape. Can't see much in the way of front or rear-end styling, but the buzz continues to build for this very imporant product that DaimlerChrysler hopes will keep it on top of minivan sales in the U.S. (We're also counting Chrysler Town and Country sales, without which the Honda Odyssey would be the best seller).

Check out the link for all eight photos.

      Who's the DORK in the FORD F-250 with an Earnhardt Junior license plate frame? Is that Dr. Z?

      Meh, I dont think Honda cares about selling the most minivans as long as they basically own the upper end of the minivan market. Leave the sraps for GM and DC.

      What on earth are you talking about? More factually wrong info, as usual, and it probably will never be corrected. Chrysler minivans outsell Honda more than 2:1.

      2006 Minivan sales YTD:

      Dodge Caravan: 138,617
      Honda Odyssey: 106,815
      Chrysler Town & Country: 100,443

      The Odyssey barely outsells the T&C.

      So Erin, if only DCX didn't count all their minivan sales they wouldn't be number 1? Why wouldn't we (and they) count all their sales?

      "Gosh, I really hope it has hood lines like the very attractive new Sebring!"

      I like Chrysler's hood lines, they are distinctive. As this is a Dodge though, you won't find them here. How far off topic are you willing to go to take a cheap shot at an auto manufacturer?

      Tri-Bob's wife is kicking and screaming while dragging him around? Sounds like yall need counseling.

      Just to set the record straight, Dodge Caravan and Chrysler Town & Country each outsold the Honda Odyssey in 2005 (US Sales).
      Dodge Caravan - 226,771
      Chrysler Town & Country - 180,759
      Honda Odyssey - 174,275
      Toyota Sienna - 161,380

      Honda would have to more than double their sales to outsell Dodge and Chrysler combined.

      Forget the Caravan. Where are the spyshots of the Chrysler-built VW van? That's the one I'm curious about...
