News UPDATE: 2021 Dodge Journey And Grand Caravan Not Coming Back

UPDATE: 2021 Dodge Journey And Grand Caravan Not Coming Back

Dodge axes 40 percent of its lineup and a ton of sales by not bringing back the Journey and Grand Caravan in 2021

  • Dodge won’t offer a Journey or a Grand Caravan in 2021

  • Lineup will include only the Charger, Challenger, and Durango

  • The Dodge Grand Caravan was one of the best-selling vehicles in Canada and the best-selling minivan in North America


UPDDATE: The 2021 Dodge Grand Caravan will indeed not return to Canada, but we will be getting the 2021 Chrysler Grand Caravan.

Back in 2008 Dodge celebrated the 25th anniversary of the Grand Caravan, calling the first minivan a “home run”. Less than 15 years later, the Grand Caravan like the Dodge Journey aren’t coming back for 2021.

Dodge confirmed yesterday that the 2021 Dodge Journey and 2021 Dodge Grand Caravan weren’t coming back. The 2021 Dodge lineup will feature the Charger, Challenger, and Durango.

The name of the game in Dodge’s new lineup for 2021 is definitely power. There’s a new Durango Hellcat, a new performance package for the Challenger and a new Redeye model in the Charger lineup. What’s missing is something for the masses who need an affordable, spacious, versatile vehicle.

The 2021 Dodge Journey could have fit that mold perfectly. It’s actually quite surprising Dodge isn’t bringing back the Journey in 2021 given how popular the small crossover segment is in both Canada and the US. Of course, they may just be waiting for 2022.

As for the Dodge Grand Caravan, its future is murky. FCA will sell the new Chrysler Voyager as its affordable minivan option with the Pacifica being the more upscale offering. It’s very likely that we’ve seen the last of the Grand Caravan for the foreseeable future.

Both the Journey and the Grand Caravan represented nearly 40 % of FCA sales in North America, so there’s definitely a gap that needs to be filled.
