By a slim 41-unit margin, the Dodge Grand Caravan outsold the Toyota Sienna to become America’s top-selling minivan in September 2015. The Grand Caravan, the second-best-selling minivan in calendar year 2015, last held the monthly crown in April 2014.
But after a shutdown at its Windsor, Ontario, plant that led to a fleet slowdown and a forthcoming generational change, sales of the Grand Caravan and its Chrysler Town & Country sibling – which together own one-third of the minivan market even in this poor year – the Grand Caravan’s sales are still falling.
September volume slid 6% in a surging market even as other minivans from Honda, Kia, Nissan, and Toyota produced major gains.
Year-to-date, America’s top-selling minivan is the Toyota Sienna, the top seller in each of 2015’s first six months. The summer leader, Honda’s Odyssey, slid into third spot in September.
