The Chrysler Group continues to sell more minivans than any other automaker in the United States. Dreadful year-over-year drops posted by the Chrysler Town & Country and Dodge Grand Caravan presented an opportunity for the Toyota Sienna to appear as the dominant minivan player.
Truthfully, the Chrysler/Dodge duo remained ahead in July 2011. As individuals, however, both were smoked by the Toyota Swagger Wagon, sales of which improved 2.3%. Grand Caravan sales slid 16.4%; Town & Country sales were down 19.5%. At this point last year the Chrysler duo was ahead of the Sienna by 73,216 minivan sales through seven months. Through July of 2011, the Chrysler minivan pair is ahead by just 50,601 sales.
This is sort of like criticizing the Brazilian soccer team when its margin of victory over the Canadians is three goals instead of five.
