It's been nearly 30 years since Chrysler
first pulled the sheets off the Dodge
Caravan. That was back in 1983 when then Chrysler CEO Lee Iacocca finally had the chance to reveal the type of vehicle he first thought of when he was running Ford
years before. His idea for what would become the "minivan" was rejected by Henry Ford II. And to Chrysler's phenomenal gain, the Grand Caravan
and Town & Country
are still going strong to this day, having a 40 percent share of the minivan market.
