Minivan Caravan

Minivan Caravan

Overview: The sleek new Chrysler Pacifica may be getting all the attention lately, but its maker, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, isn’t quite ready yet to put all its minivan eggs in one basket. And so the Dodge brand is hanging on to its own minivan offering, the Grand Caravan—mechanical twin to the Pacifica’s predecessor, the now defunct Town & Country minivan—for at least another year. Last redesigned for 2008, the Grand Caravan is getting old, and it is now being positioned … http://spb-sovtrans.ru

A clean-sheet redesign aims to counter the stale image of the previous-generation Chrysler minivans including a name change. Starting this spring, the successor of this ubiquitous all-American family mobile is to be known as the Chrysler Pacifica. Good-bye fuddy-duddy Town & Country, Dodge Grand Caravan, and near-forgotten Plymouth Voyager. Chrysler hopes that abandoning the Town & Country name will help recast the minivan’s image, aided by a shapely, modern body …

Town N Country minivan

Town N Country minivan

Outside noise shouldn’t be a concern when riding in the 2016 Town & Country, as the cabin stays quietly isolated even at cruising speed. The front seats offer plenty of room all around, and kids can easily fit in the last two rows. The second- and third-row seats, however, have deeply reclined seatbacks that may be uncomfortable for adults on longer trips. If you regularly shuttle adults in the back rows, the Honda Odyssey is the best choice in the class. The Town & …

Minivan or SUVs for family of 6

CARS.COM — A little over two years ago, I was pregnant with my second child and shopping for a new family car. Seeing our obviously growing family, the well-meaning salesman brought us over to a minivan. The second those power doors slid open, I quickly corrected him: No, no. This is only my second baby. I am not driving that. Fast-forward two years and two babies later, and I m now driving a minivan; I ve jumped the fence from No way, no how to No, really; it s awesome …

Although its hybrid drivetrain and resulting high mpg ratings are the main draws, the C-Max is also quite practical for family use thanks to its interior layout and wide array of convenience features. Furthermore, its seating position feels more like an SUV than a conventional wagon and offers the resulting commanding view of the road that many consumers desire. There are …

Pull the carpet that is in front of the seat upwards with both of your hands, and place it to the side. It s preferable to place these carpets outside the vehicle when you do so, but after a few times, you ll be able to determine just how much space you ll need to use to be able to find a place to put these. Pulling up the carpeting, will expose the cabinets that will later hold your seats. Ensure that both headrests are down. If there is a lever or pull-cord to fold these headrests …

Minivans and SUVs

Parenting is hard, and your choice of family transport doesn’t need to compound whatever problems are likely to crop up during the course of a day or week. Yet American moms and dads regularly choose vehicles that are less than ideal for the task of hauling a brood and living suburban life, all because they think that minivans aren’t cool.* Let me tell you something: Minivans are cool. Certainly not for their image, as demonstrated by J.D. Power research data, 1 which reveals …

Volvo, minivan

Volvo, minivan

Volvo s flagship XC90 is a large, luxurious land yacht. With seating for seven, a stately interior and the world s best SUV safety rating, it s like a comfy three-room apartment on wheels. In other words, it s a minivan — with all of the amenities, but none of the embarrassment, of driving that much-lampooned soccer mom-mobile. Don t get me wrong. Some of my best friends are soccer moms. I love minivans and have owned several. My daughters childhoods were no longer nor more violent …

Thanks for inviting us, Steve. We’re huge fans of Think Save Retire and your Airstream dream! When Daniel and I quit our jobs at the beginning of 2016, we knew we wanted to spend at least a couple years traveling the world, including taking a long road trip around North America. We evaluated the whole spectrum of vehicle options – everything from throwing a tent in the back of a sedan to buying a big RV or trailer. Much to the amusement of our friends and family, we ultimately …

Earlier this year, I was awarded a National Geographic Young Explorers Grant to spend four months driving around the United States documenting nocturnal culture with my partner and collaborator, Kevin Weidner (who helped me write this piece), and our two dogs (check out my piece on late-night Vegas). Because the grant mostly covered fuel and food, and because we needed to cover a lot of ground in a relatively short amount of time, one of our first tasks was to figure out a reliable …

For those of you who aren t aware, a Ford Aerostar is a minivan. And not just any minivan: an anteater-shaped minivan with standard rear-wheel drive that …
