This is a hard pass downgrade for me. I'll stick with my Pinnacle. No thanks Stellantis, you take away roof racks on lower trims and now bring them back with black and orange branding "Road Tripper"? :cautious: "Road Tripper" :rolleyes::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO: Guess the Pinnacle or any other trims are not worthy of travel now.

New Chrysler Road Tripper minivan revealed

Trying to bring a Dodge look into the Chrysler line....

Wonder if they are going to start bringing back all the other ridiculous trim levels and add this one too. Pacifica L, Pacifica LX, Pacifica Touring, Pacifica Touring L, Pacifica Touring L 35th Anniversary, Pacifica Touring L Plus, Pacifica Touring L Plus 35th Anniversary, Pacifica S, Pacifica Limited, Pacifica Limited 35th Anniversary, Pacifica Limited Red S, Pacifica Pinnacle. Did I miss one? Probably... :ROFLMAO:

Then scaled back to Chrysler Voyager for the L and LX. Pacifica Touring and Touring L, Pacifica S, Pacifica Limited, Pacifica Limited Red S, Pacifica Pinnacle.

Marketing department: We made a mistake by removing roof rails from lower trims and it has hurt sales. We need to figure out a way to sell lower trim levels to compete with the competition and boost sales. Let's add roof racks back and throw a black and orange sticker on the door that says"Road Tripper" and make the Chrysler logo on the wheels black and orange.

Marketing department:

The smart thing would have been to make this "Road Tripper" the new Dodge Grand Caravan line from the Voyager trims and have placement in the Dodge branding at lower entry prices than Chrysler as it has been for decades. There are a lot of families having a hard time right now looking for lower-priced vehicles. I'm just a consumer what do I know about marketing?

The orange “Road Tripper” badging on the side is ugly but I have to admit the orange and black Chrysler logo looks pretty slick. I’d swap out my grill badge for one of these if I could get my hands on one.

On another note, here’s a nails-on-chalkboard video about the Road Tripper. I challenge you to watch it to the end without screaming at your device. (You’ll see what I mean pretty quickly. 😂)
Man, that guy in the video narrating was annoying—nothing like reading from a script and not knowing anything about what you are actually reviewing. This is just as annoying as the reviews of the Pacifica hybrid with people saying it has a "CVT". :cautious: Open mouth, insert foot.
