Chrysler’s “Stow ‘n Go” seating system makes converting the vans for optimal cargo carrying easy, but not easy enough.

A document filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark office reveals plans for an improved version. Current minivans feature a one-button system, which is already an improvement over the stowaway seats first introduced in 2005. When the new hideaway buckets are introduced, they will require less space.

That will mean the front row won’t need to be pushed forward to tuck the seats behind them away. The new system creates a flat floor using two pieces rather than the current one-piece design.

It isn’t clear if Chrysler will include its new seats in the van that will replace the Grand Caravan and Town & Country in 2015 or if they will appear in later models.
