Spy Photos: 2008 Chrysler Caravan

There's not much new to see in this prototype of the next generation of Chrysler minivans, but these latest shots are slightly clearer than those taken in past months. The vans are being poked and prodded by engineers in the desert heat, these days, in advance of their arrival for the 2008 model year. What we know so far: They'll be boxy and relatively slab-sided; they'll have roll-down windows; they'll get a new front fascia including projector-beam headlamps; they'll be compliant with Europe's pedestrian-protection standards; and we may just see them at the next Detroit show — this January. About that Hemi rumor? Don't you believe it.
