Other Chrysler Group executives pictured, from left: Eric Ridenour, Chrysler Group COO; Ann Fandozzi, Director Front-wheel-drive Product Marketing; Chef Bobby Flay; Larry Lyons, VP FWD Product Team, and Ralph Gilles, VP Design. With all-new interior and exterior designs, these fifth generation versions of industry-leading Chrysler Group minivans will arrive this fall. Five models, three distinct seating and storage systems and three powertrains (including the first minivan six-speed transaxle) offer the right ingredients for active lifestyles. In all, 35 new or improved features for Chrysler Group's "bread and butter" products make these 2008 minivans "family rooms on wheels." The newest ingredient for functional family seating is the all-new Swivel 'n Go (TM) seating system, which features second-row seats to swivel 180 degrees to face third row seats and allows for the installation of a removable table between the two rows. Other available features include a voice-activated navigation system, power sliding doors and liftgate, pinpoint LED lighting and a dual DVD system that plays different media at the same time. Chrysler Corporation invented the modern minivan segment in 1983. Since then, the Chrysler Group has sold more than 11 million minivans and invented more than 60 minivan firsts, revolutionizing the minivan segment.
