When do we see 2020?

The Donlen site says that Chrysler started accepting orders in May https://www.donlen.com/buildstart-chrysler.html . When will we get to see order sheets, options etc?

Mmm . . . interesting . . . The Dodge Grand Caravan has a long delay, and a very late startup date. Is it getting a major change? Perhaps using the Pacifica platform?

Not sure I completely understand the Donlen site, does this mean my order put in last week could be a 2020? The dealer didn’t tell me any issues with the order process but if I read that right they are not taking 2019 orders anymore. Can someone clarify?

Accordin to Carl

"Just found out that they will be shutting down the Windsor Plant from July 7-August 11. Typically, they don't shut down the plant for this long unless they are doing some major retooling. There may be changes coming that are not showing up in the current order system. ..."

What major changes? Amphibious? Monster Truck Version? All Electric?
Or to be really radical, maybe 2 new cup holders?

Glut of overstock? Is there anywhere online where we can see all of the remaining 2019's? The Chrysler site only lets me see cars on dealer lots in a 250 mile radius and frequently, that is not accurate.

I haven't looked in months, but I think cars.com could do a national search, and it was pretty accurate.

They shut down the plant last year for almost as long, but the excuse was to retool the line for the Grand Caravan so that it would pass current safety regs. No rumors of why this year's shut down is so long. Both Pac and GC are down in sales so far this year so that may have something to do with it. But then again, so are the other minivans. Looks like SUVs have too much momentum.

Model 2019 YTD 2018 YTD YoY
Pacifica 48,527 63,024 -23%
GC 71,947 86,778 -17%
Ody 47,500 51,255 -7.3%
