2015 was a big year for cars. One of the biggest, as we highlighted earlier, the Dodge SRT Charger Hellcat was the Digital Trends Best Car of the Year. The Hellcats certainly were the biggest and most talked about vehicles of 2015. Going by sales, however, tells a different story for 2015. It seems this was the year of the minivan.
Chrysler and Dodge minivans led the nation in combined minivan sales. While the year started out smaller for the minivans, the end of the year turned it around. Over 167,000 Dodge and Chrysler minivans were sold in 2015, giving both companies some of their best months ever for their respective minivans.
In fact, the Chrysler Town and Country had the largest year-over-year sales growth of any other Fiat-Chrysler vehicle in the US. The increase for the US was 20% in November alone. It was a really good year for the Town and Country.
Not too shabby for a vehicle that is usually spoken of with a hint of despair under the breath due to the stereotypical nature of the minivan. The minivan has been around since the early 1980’s and who would’ve thought that it would be 2015 that ended marking one of its biggest years? The future is bright for the minivan as Chrysler will be looking to make some revisions and introduce a possible new face and a new look going forward.
