Chrysler Town & Country/Voyager (1st Gen) 1987-1990

The first Chrysler Town & Country minivan was introduced in 1989 (as a 1990 model) alongside the Plymouth Voyager and Dodge Caravan. Sharing the body of the long-wheelbase (LWB) Grand Voyager/Grand Caravan's Chrysler S platform, the Town & Country was externally distinguished by its chrome waterfall grille, crystal pentastar hood ornament, standard woodgrain applique, grooved lower body cladding, and 15" white lace-spoke aluminum wheels. Additionally, 1990 Town & Country's were only available in two exterior colors: Black Clearcoat or Bright White Clearcoat.

As the Chrysler Corporation's most luxurious minivan, the Town & Country came standard with nearly every feature available on Plymouth and Dodge minivans in addition to some exclusive amenities of its own. This included unique gathered leather seating surfaces and door trim panels, front and rear air conditioning, power windows, power locks, an Infinity sound system, seven-passenger seating, luggage rack, 3.3 L V6 (pilot production models, manufactured for show and dealer display had the 3.0 L Mitsubishi 6G72) and an electronically controlled four-speed automatic transmission.

Ironically, the first generation Town & Country minivan was released for the final model year of production of the first-generation Chrysler minivans. The Town & Country, Voyager/Grand Voyager, and Caravan/Grand Caravan would all be redesigned for the 1991 model year. Total production was less than 10,000 units for 1990, making this model of the Town & Country as the most obscure of all the Chrysler minivans.

The reason for the first model year being the only model year for this bodystyle was because it was an attempt to repurpose an abundance of pre-manufactured bodies previously slated for the Dodge Caravan and Plymouth Voyager as a temporary measure to save costs some time before the next generation bodystyle would immediately replace this bodystyle since it was an opportunity to offer a more luxurious vehicle to finish off manufacturing of abundant car parts of an aging model with.

Chrysler Voyager

19881990 models sold in Europe were Dodge Caravans rebranded as Chryslers. In America, Caravan was sold alongside a similar Plymouth Voyager counterpart. Europe's Chrysler Voyager was nearly identical to the american Dodge Caravan except that V6 power was not available for the european version. American models were offered in most states with either a 2.5 L four-cylinder or a 3.0 L Mitsubishi V6 engine. After 1989, the Mitsubishi V6 didn't meet emissions standards in California and several northeastern states. In those locales, the 3.3 L engine was offered in place of the 3.0 L .

Lack of charisma can be fatal.
