The best-selling minivan(s) in America in 2011 were the Chrysler Town & Country and Dodge Grand Caravan. Only they weren’t.

The Toyota Sienna was the best-selling minivan in the USA in 2011, beating the Grand Caravan – just the Grand Caravan – by 562 sales, a scant 0.5% advantage. The Honda Odyssey wasn’t far behind in third; Odyssey sales slid 1% to 107,068. 2010’s best-selling minivan, by any definition, was the Chrysler Town & Country, but sales of that van plunged 16% in 2011. The overall new vehicle market was up 10%.

So what’s this about the Sienna not being the best-selling minivan in America? Think about it: separating the Town & Country from the Grand Caravan is like separating the scoring achievements of Henrik and Daniel Sedin. One does not produce without the other. Together, Chrysler’s two vans found 205,182 buyers in 2011. One might ask if Chrysler would have sold that many minivans if the two vans became a single van. In fact, Fiat boss Sergio Marchionne asked just that, and the response is becoming a policy – there’ll only be one brand selling vans for the company in the near future.

Officially, yes, the Toyota Sienna was the best-selling minivan in 2011, and rightly so. It’s GoodCarBadCar.net’s favourite offering, aside from the too-small-for-most-buyers Mazda 5. But more accurately, the Drysler Grand & Town was America’s favourite minivan in 2011.
