The minivan has always been one of the most true to form, honest and functional vehicles, and modern vans like the 2019 Honda Odyssey are so packed with gadgets and features it’s a shame more people don’t do themselves a favor and buy one.
Gotta take the kids to school? You should stop at the track first. A collection of madmen from Honda’s Alabama plant built a humble Odyssey into a race car, and I see absolutely nothing wrong or sacrilegious about this plan. Come to think of it, every minivan would be better with a roll cage inside.
Ryan is rather proficient at procreating. So much so he has three kids including one set of twins and another on the way. His old SUV just isn’t going to cut it anymore and he would like something a bit more comfortable. What car should he buy?
Honda is unveiling the 2018 Honda Odyssey minivan at the Detroit Auto Show next month, and who better to design it than the kids it’s going to have to inevitably put up with?
One of our loyal, sexy readers was heading into work this morning, listening (probably) to the audiobook of the Chilton’s AMC Hornet/Pacer/Gremlin repair manual, when they saw this, um, minivan. With a small addition. Now I just want to know WTF is going on with this.
Earlier today I reviewed the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica, arguably the biggest minivan news since Volkswagen chickened out from giving us the modernized Microbus we all really wanted. The Pacifica is impressive, sure, but it’s lacking something that every minivan built needs to have: a real trash management system.
I just got back from the lavish 2017 Chrysler Pacifica first-drive event, and while I’m embargoed from talking in too much detail about the car or how it drives just yet, I can tell you how much it’ll cost: between $28,595 and $42,495.
Chrysler’s latest revision on their minivan (no longer called the Town & Country; it’s now the Chrylser Pacifica, for some reason) is a pretty surprising rolling room of tech–a hybrid system, 360° cameras, a vacuum cleaner–and it includes a modern tool to solve one of the family roadtrip’s most traditional annoyances.
Presenting the all-new 2017 Chrysler Town & Country — which is actually now officially the Pacifica — the last beacon of hope in the age where traditional minivans fall to the rush of consumers flocking to “crossovers.” It’s very, uh, modern, and now with a hybrid option!
I must get this question about once a week. Seriously, what is wrong with you people? You know you need a minivan. You know the minivan is the best family hauling car for the money. Yet for some strange reason you have this complex about driving a van and would rather sacrifice convenience and flexibility so you can…
This cute workhorse has 302 miles on the clock and the seat protectors and rubber floor mats left right where the British Motor Corporation put them back in 1968. Also, Dunlop cross-ply tires!
About once a month someone says to me, "Now that I have kids, I think I need a minivan, but I really don't want a minivan. What should I buy?" Early in my career my answer was, "Well, you should probably buy a minivan." Most folks don't like this answer, but more often than not it's true.
Of course it's French, glad you've asked! Meet the De La Chapelle Route, available with a Jaguar V12... or a Mercedes V8 with 326 horsepower. It is the ultimate upscale minivan experience.
"It has been proven that a more aerodynamically styled a vehicle is, the easier it slices through the air," the announcer says. And what could possibly be more aerodynamic than the 1986 Ford Aerostar? Nothing, obviously. It's got "aero" in the name!
You thought you were hot stuff when you bought that R8 Spyder. Wait till you get beaten around a skid pad by a Dodge minivan driven by a Jalopnik reader.
Toyota just unveiled two brand new small minivans, apparently due to popular demand. Called the Porte and the Spade, they both have two sliding doors to allow ease of entry in narrow Japanese parking decks.
Parking can be difficult, but typically not in a nose-in parking space wide enough to fit two cars. Watch this minivan pilot ineptly try to guide the bulky purple machine into one such cavernous stall.
When Chevrolet introduced their Astro van in 1985 they wanted the world to know a few things about it—there had never been anything quite like the Astro in all of the universe and it may or may not have been capable of flying through space. At least that is what we take away from this vintage commercial.
If you weren't already nervous when traveling behind a logging truck on the highway we're afraid these pictures might inspire some anxiety next time you spot one on the open road.
