Technically the widebody was available in 1985 already as Dodge and Plymouth, but due to WCS not being able to have 3 brands in one car page, I split the car when it became a Chrysler in 1986.

For 1965 and 1966, the Newport was called Windsor in Canada. The main difference is that the Windsor was not available as the 6-window Town Sedan.

Now THAT is unusual. I mean, the Grand Caravan name has never been associated with the Chrysler brand...why the sudden use as such? Probably would have made more sense to slap a crosshair grille and Dodge badges on it if they were gonna have the nameplate carry on, for proper brand recognition.

Just as the US gets the cheaper trim levels as Chrysler Voyager, Canada will get the same cheaper trim levels as Chrysler Grand Caravan starting from model year 2021.

All Wheel Drive was made available for the pre-facelift Pacifica, starting in June, as the AWD Launch Edition package for Touring-L trim Pacificas, ahead of the 2021 model year facelift. So, it's an option for non-hybrid models (hybrids have only been offered in Premium and Platinum trims).

This updated 2021 Pacifica (no word on if the changes carry over to the new lower priced Voyager, which was just introduced for the 2020 model year) marks the return of all-wheel-drive as an option on a Chrysler minivan for the first time since the RS vans were discontinued.

This also gives the Toyota Sienna a bit more competition, as prior to this, the Sienna was the only minivan in the North American market that offered AWD.

Also new with the Pacifica for 2021 is the introduction of a new high-end trim package, Pinnacle. I'd imagine it would largely be similar to the Elite trim on the Honda Odyssey, Limited Premium on the Sienna, and SX on the Kia Sedona.

When people hear the Pacifica nameplate, they think of the mid-00's CUV that used the nameplate, but the reality is...today's Pacifica minivan actually owes it's existence to this concept, based on the Town & Country of the era with LHS styling cues.

The Pacifica that went into production 3-4 years later? That draws it's lineage back to the Citadel concept from the same year as this, which evolved into the 2002 Pacifica concept that previewed the production model.

Now, the Pacifica nameplate has gone back to it's minivan roots, while the Citadel nameplate has been re-assigned as a top of the line Dodge Durango trim level. Full circle, I'd say.

Fiat at least earned a small but profitable customer base by selling cheap cars with good equipment features at base.

I personally loved the design of the Chrysler 200 and wanted to buy one, but it was too difficult for me to get one (i had to drive to the german harbor of Rostock). If i already knew the car was good i would have bought it anyway, but i dont drive 800 kilometers to Rostock, do a Test Drive and then notice its shit and drive back again...

Oh and the new Jeeps are all awful, people who drive them as rental cars in Germany always complain about them.

Yeah. Just like you said Chrysler is sinking ship for many years.
But this is no way for them to get going again.

But again customers who are buying the cars are the key. And just like I said before 70% of them have no idea about cars, they just buying them because A) They heard that make is good or B) Someone on internet i am fan of is driving that car, so I must drive it too.

Here is the quote from Tucker: The Man and His Dream movie. "And one day, we're gonna find ourselves at the bottom of the heap, instead of king of the hill, having no idea how we got there; buying our radios and our cars from our former enemies!" This is Tucker speech to the jury back in 50's when he was in the court, and the jury laughed at that comment, and look what car is best seller in US.
If the US let smaller manufacturers come with new ideas, instead of focusing on 'Big Three' they will still be on the top of vehicle industry.

FCA have some very brigh leadership. Mixing US and Italian isn't good thing. Cadillac Allante and Chrysler TC for example.
Damn it, Fiat is most common car in Serbia, they have factory here, but people don't like them and are only buying them for low prices.

All of Chrysler has been a sinking ship or many many years. I don't think any existing American car manufacturer has been close to bankruptcy as many times as Chrysler.
In the 70s, they failed to adapt to the economic situation, and kept building big cars when fuel prices were very high. They partnered with Mitsubishi -> failed.
In the 80s, they were saved by a cheap and uninspiring compact car (the K-Car) and bought AMC, which wasn't doing well at all, just so they could have Jeep.
In the late 90s, they partnered with Mercedes -> didn't work. At the end of the 2000s, they hit rock bottom and merged with Fiat (which struggles to compete with big corporations like Renault-Nissan, Volkswagen, GM).

Now FCA's boss has greatly improved Chryslers when you compare them to the 2000s models, but they aren't competitive at all if you look beyond price (and horsepower in case of Dodge). Dodge and Jeep crossovers are doing very well (funny, because they aren't getting very many facelifts), as the world is crazy about crossovers right now. Chrysler has two cars left (one is outdated, the other in a category that nobody wants anymore). Fiat tries to live off of the 500, which is losing popularity, Lancia is pretty much dead, Alfa Romeo's grand revival isn't exactly going as planned (although the Stelvio does well of course), Maserati has an outdated sports car, some very expensive sedans and a crossover.

FCA's boss has also been desperately looking for another corporation to buy all of FCA, which doesn't look very good, while he is trying to make all of his brands to go 100% crossover. Good job!

*Both the Chrysler TC and Cadillac Allant were bad ideas because they were built in Italy and imported to the US, which made them ridiculously expensive. I think the Allant could have done reasonably well if it was built in the US instead.

I really hope this car gets Chrysler back on track. Compared to the previous Sebring/200, this car actually has the right to call itself a Chrysler. It's no longer a cheap mid-size car, and the interior looks exactly like what you imagine a Chrysler interior to look like. To be honest, the Chrysler interiors from the early 2000s until Fiat took over were horrible and although the Fiat interiors look nice, this is more like what a Chrysler should have.

Some clarification concerning the successors of this car:
The M-Body Chrysler LeBaron was downsized to the K-Body in 1981. At the same time, the R-Body New Yorker was downsized and in all fairness, they just put the New Yorker nameplate on the M-Body LeBaron and continued to build it until 1989. The Dodge M-Body counterpart of this car was called the Diplomat, which was built from 1976 until 1989 and confirms the 1976-1981 Chrysler LeBaron and 1981-1989 Chrysler New Yorker/Fifth Avenue to be the same cars.
