Windsor-built Grand Caravan An FCA Sales Highlight

Sales of the Dodge Grand Caravan took off in March.

In the monthly sales stats from FCA Canada, the Windsor-built vehicle sold 47-percent more vehicles this past March than in the same month a year ago.

Nearly 5500 of the minivans sold in Canada last month, a significant bump up from the 3700 in March 2016.

Year to date sales are also strong for the Grand Caravan at 26-percent above the same period in 2016.

Sales of the Windsor made Pacifica can't be compared to last year because it's a new model, but about 650 sold last month (up 159 from February) and over 1300 have sold so far this year.

Overall, March sales for FCA were similar to March 2016, with fleet sales showing a modest 5-percent increase in that period.
