Although American drivers welcomed minivans with open arms in the 1980s, the relationship between the two hit a rocky patch in the following decade. Some car companies ditched the minivan in the mid to late ‘90s, but others improved upon it. Take a closer look at the emergence of the minivan and its evolution into the modern minivan below.
A 1980s Miracle
There weren’t a lot of options for family travel in the early 1980s. There were station wagons of course, but most models either lacked a fixed third row or had fold-out third row in the back—which usually only sat two and always took up valuable family cargo space. But the mid-80s brought with it a vehicle that answered the prayers of many families. Minivans comfortably sat the small and tall alike and left plenty of cargo space in the back. Among these new minivans was the famous 1984 Dodge Caravan.
Function Over Fashion
While the functionality of the mini-van won many families over, the style of vehicle itself created a sort of stigma about the driver as time went on. Drivers started to feel that the minivan screamed soccer mom and that the vehicle itself lacked finesse. As a result, millions began to embrace the SUV as the alternative. But fuel economy, practicality, and the re-imagined modern minivan soon had their say on the matter.
Minivans: The Next Generation
Families wanted a new type of minivan, one fit for a family yet equipped with the comfort, entertainment, and luxurious options found in 21st century vehicles. Dodge and Chrysler answered the call by introducing new and improved minivans with sleek exteriors and enticing interiors. This new breed introduced a slew of new and useful features such as swivel seating, 12-volt outlets, independent visual entertainment screens, on-board GPS navigation systems, satellite radio, and much, much more.
