The upcoming season is going to bring fun to all crossover fans. We already have dozens of reviews of upcoming models. Chrysler is not a leader in this segment, but the US carmaker produces some of the most popular SUVs. Nevertheless, 2019-2020 Chrysler SUV and Crossover Models can make a major impact on the market. The company announced many changes in design, new engines, and names. Also, some returns are possible. That is enough for any crossover fan to listen carefully for any updates about these vehicles.
There are plenty of plans for 2019-2020 Chrysler SUV and Crossover Models lineup. In compact segment, we expect a new vehicle. The company will probably use the same platform as Jeep Cherokee. The third row of seats will be optional. In full-size class it is standard. The possible return of Aspen is in the mix, as well as Town and Country model as a crossover. Finally, Pacifica minivan could be turned into SUV as one of the possibilities.
History and return of Chrysler SUV
It’s very important for every carmaker to be present in many segments of the car industry. Chrysler is returning to an SUV league after 10 years. The first crossover was Pacifica, which is now a minivan. Produced between 2004 and 2008 it hasn’t achieved a big success. However, as a luxurious van, it is one of the best in the class. A better-known model is full-size SUV Chrysler Aspen. With three rows of seats, it was popular between 2007-2009, but the company decided to discontinue it.
Of course, these two names are favorite to come back as 2019-2020 Chrysler SUV and Crossover Models. Aspen, as a popular name, could lure the attention of old fans. On the other hand, Pacifica has many fans. Furthermore, minivan class is not so popular, and crossovers are taking away their buyers with a better offer. Advantages of vans are not so important, so it is not impossible to see Chrysler Pacifica as a crossover during 2019 and 2020.
2019-2020 Chrysler SUV and Crossover Models Hybrids and Self-Driving cars
If Pacifica turns to other class, then the hybrid engine is certain. This is the first, and so far, the only minivan that uses this kind of drivetrain. With many modifications to make this vehicle capable for an SUV segment, engineers will adopt a plug-in engine also. We doubt it will be the same drivetrain as for Pacifica hybrid, but rather a new powertrain.
With plug-in version certain for 2019-2020 Chrysler SUV and Crossover Models, we are sure that the company will turn to next step. It is an all-electric and self-driving crossover. But, this is a far-fetched story and it could be real in 2020.
2019-2020 Chrysler SUV and Crossover Models Release Date
The 2019-2020 Chrysler SUV and Crossover Models will arrive late in 2018. For the first premiere, fans will wait until the last quarter of the year. It is pretty sure that the company will launch both compact Pacifica and full-size Aspen crossover at the same time. The Town and Country model is very likely about to take a position in the mid-size segment. However, this version is coming after big and small SUVs.
