VW's Caravan Named Routan

VW will be unveiling their new Dodge Caravan / Chrysler Town & Country based minivan, the Routan at the Chicago Auto Show in February. Of course, this unveiling will pale in comparison to the unveiling of the production 2009 Dodge Challenger. VW has cleverly combined the word "route" with the suffix "an" in an effort to instill a glamorous family road trip image into the publics imagination, while keeping the naming in line with the Sharan and Touran, well, at least that's what the press release claims. The Routan will be built alongside its Chrysler brethren in Windsor, Ontario and will go on sale next year. We'll be bringing you live coverage from the Chicago Auto Show on February 6th and 7th.
