Although the Dodge Dart was Chrysler Group’s big news at this year’s North American International Auto Show, there was also another rather unique vehicle on display, the 700 C.

A concept minivan, little information was available on it at the show. All we could get from Chrysler was that the 700C is “a styling exercise, designed to gauge public reaction.”

When Chrysler/Fiat CEO Sergio Marchionne toured the Windsor assembly plant which builds the current Dodge Grand Caravan and Town & Country models, he talked about “big plans for the future,” though declined to reveal much more.

With minivan sales still a staple part of the Chrysler’s business in North America, yet the segment for the most part suffering from a lack of new investment, perhaps the time has come to reinvent the concept of what a minivan should be.

And if the Chrysler 700C concept is any indication, that might just result in the most exciting people mover seen in more than a quarter of a century.

    I personally think this thing is hideous… Yes it may be the most exciting thing ive ever seen in a long time. But its just ugly, it is extremely ugly.

    Somehow Chrysler was saved from the brink of going broke! to design this!?

  • nick agresta

    Once again Chrysler sets the bar high and the standard for MV’s…Congrats and get it in the system pronto…I’m buyin!!!!

  • Ray

    I think the Chrysler 700C concept looks okay aside from the side profile, wheels, and front grille….Chrysler could of done a much better job. To those that see some potential in this new design, what would you change?

  • SM

    Looks Horrible, would be better off marketing it as a Hearse, seems to look like one.
