Just ahead of the 2019 Chicago Auto Show
revealed a pair of special editions to commemorate the 35th anniversary of the original Dodge Caravan
and Plymouth Voyager
. The 2019 Chrysler Pacifica
, Pacifica Hybrid
and Dodge Grand Caravan
35th Anniversary Edition models will make their full debut this week sporting special badging and paint. Since the original 1984 models
has sold more than 14.6 million minivans
around the world.
Chrysler introduced the original
in late 1983. The pair shared much with Lee Iacocca's
storied K-platform. K-based models such as the Dodge
Omni and Plymouth Horizon
helped turn around Chrysler's fortunes in the early '80s. Likewise, the Caravan and Voyager were a huge success and provided the template for modern minivans including the Honda Odyssey
and Toyota Sienna
and Grand Caravan
35th Anniversary Editions both come with an all-black interior featuring Cranberry Wine accent stitching on the seats, steering wheel, door trim, instrument panel bezels and door handles. There's also a 35th Anniversary logo on the floor mats plus badges on the grille and liftgate.
The package is available on Pacifica Touring L, Touring L Plus and Limited trims, including hybrid
models. An optional S package (blacked out trim) can be added to any 35th anniversary Pacifica. The anniversary package can be added to Grand Caravan SE and SXT models. The anniversary package will be available sometime this summer.
