The Chicago Auto Show is turning into a festival of anniversaries as evidenced by FCA’s unveiling of the 35th anniversary editions of the 2019 Chrysler Pacifica and Dodge Grand Caravan. Both Mazda and Acura are also marking the respective 30th anniversaries of the MX-5 Miata and NSX.
The special edition 2019 Chrysler Pacifica, Pacifica Hybrid and Dodge Grand Caravan feature unique badging, all-black interiors with Cranberry Wine stitching, and additional content ranging from memory seating, larger wheels, navigation and other features.
“We created the minivan segment, we’re proud of our place in it, and we will continue to innovate like we’ve done with the first hybrid minivan, industry-exclusive Stow ‘n Go seating, Uconnect Theater with 10-inch touchscreens in the second row and much more,” said Steve Beahm, who heads the Dodge and Chrysler brands. “More than 14.6 million families have created lasting memories in their minivans throughout the past 35 years, through home projects, road trips, soccer practice, you name it. There is no better way to commemorate the anniversary of the people mover that does it all, than by introducing an edition that offers even more value to today’s families.”
