Chrysler Town & Country Makes Big Impact in November
The Chrysler Town & Country might look like an everyday minivan, but it’s actually more rough-and-tumble than you’d think. In November, the minivan was a major reason why Fiat Chrysler Automobiles posted a 3% increase in year-over-year November sales.
Fiat Chrysler reported that the popular Chrysler minivan posted its second best sales month this year with 9,689 units sold. This was a 20% increase over last year, and the second consecutive month of sales increase for the Town & Country.

Despite its more family-oriented appeal, the Town & Country beat out every other FCA US vehicle on the market, including the popular Jeep Wrangler and Dodge Challenger, to have the largest percentage year-over-year gain group-wide.

These strong November sales come mere months after Fiat Chrysler shut down the production at the Windsor Assembly Plant, which is where the minivan has been produced since 1983. The plant was shut down for a $2 billion investment in training, retooling, and new equipment.
Along with the Town & Country sales, the rest of the FCA brands also helped post the 68th month in a row of year-over-year sales growth. Seven FCA US models posted record November sales, including four Jeeps.
