Chrysler Group regained its historical leadership position in the minivan segment with its Dodge Grand Caravan claiming the world title, and the Chrysler Town & Country claiming the top spot in the U.S. during 2010.

Globally, the Grand Caravan out-dueled its sister minivan, the Town & Country, for the #1 ranking:

Dodge Grand Caravan
160,005
Chrysler Town & Country
126,318
Honda Odyssey

In addition to its strong U.S. showing (see table below), the Grand Caravan was a very strong presence for Chrysler Canada in 2010 with  55,306 units sold — making it the #3 selling vehicle overall in the country.

For 2011, the Grand Caravan has a new powertrain with more horsepower and more torque without sacrificing fuel economy; a significant suspension overhaul for an exceptional driving experience; new exterior and interior styling that focuses on craftsmanship and comfort; and safety features consumers expect.

In the U.S., the Chrysler Town & Country claimed the top spot:

Chrysler Town & Country
122,275
Honda Odyssey
108,182

In addition, the Chrysler Town & Country minivan led Chrysler Brand sales for 2010, and was the second best-selling vehicle for the entire company.

The new 2011 Chrysler Town & Country was designed with more than 40 standard safety and technology features, including SafetyTec™, which provides industry-leading features including ParkView® rear backup camera, Blind-spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Path detection.”
