Minivans have come a long way from their lowly beginnings. Initially conceived as basic transportation for multiple people, the minivan has grown in size, content, and price. Although there are only a handful of choices left on the market, many of the remaining minivans are good ones, none of which may be better than the Chrysler Pacifica, especially the plug-in hybrid.
Minivans. The most disrespected vehicle segment, yet the best for anyone not behind the wheel. Nothing on the road is better for carrying a multitude of passengers over long distances. Although customers no longer favor these workhorses, a few do remain on the market, even if they might not actually be called minivans anymore.
The Toyo Celsius II all-season tire will supersede the Celsius and Celsius CUV tires. As you’d expect, the new tire is designed to provide good year-round service. It departs from the norm with a Three-Peak Mountain Snowflake (3PMSF) designation, which means it’s qualified for severe snow conditions.
Vans come in many sizes, but share a lot of features and benefits. Perhaps the greatest benefit, though, is versatility. A van can be configured to carry a lot of passengers, or a ton of cargo. It can be outfitted for duty as a camper or as a work space. It offers the utility of a pickup with the security of an SUV. So, van owners, shouldn’t you protect and care for your van by getting and using the best van covers?
Designed to carry families in comfort, minivans provide an abundance of space for multiple passengers. That means if you’re shopping for new tires for your minivan, you’ll likely want to focus on comfort, road noise, and tread life, unless you really plan on doing some spirited driving. That doesn’t mean, however, you shouldn’t pick a set of tires that offers good performance based on your weather conditions.
Mary Ann Capo gets right to the point. Her first words in our interview about the 2021 Chrysler Pacifica, from inside the vehicle itself at the Canadian International Autoshow, are clear: “We invented the segment. We invented the minivan. So we take pride in always being the one to innovate.”
