Chrysler press release :

2011 DODGE GRAND CARAVAN R/T — BEST-IN-CLASS HORSEPOWER AND SIGNIFICANT SUSPENSION OVERHAUL DELIVER AN EXCEPTIONAL DRIVING EXPERIENCE WITH JUST THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF ATTITUDE

Dodge is giving the Grand Caravan an extra dose of mojo for 2011. The result is the Dodge Grand

Caravan R/T - a minivan that delivers the driving dynamics of a performance sedan and a little bit of attitude. Affectionately known internally within the company as the “man van,” the new 2011 Dodge Grand Caravan R/T throws down the gauntlet for a whole new level of cool transportation for families on the go.

At the heart of the 2011 Dodge Grand Caravan R/T is an all-new powertrain. The new 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine is mated to a smooth-shifting six-speed automatic transaxle and delivers best-in-class horsepower (283 horsepower compared with 197 horsepower in the previous 3.8-liter V-6 engine) and more torque (260 lb.-ft. versus 230 lb.-ft.) without sacrificing fuel economy.

Uniquely designed both inside and out, the Dodge Grand Caravan R/T proves a driver doesn’t have to give up a spirited driving experience or their identity when they have a family.

The 2011 Dodge Grand Caravan R/T unique features include a “dipped” body-color grille, body-color side moldings and exclusive 17-inch wheels.

The 2011 Grand Caravan also features a new driver-selectable fuel-economizer mode. Drivers can change the transaxle shift schedule with the flip of a switch to maximize their fuel economy. In addition, a 12 mm lower ride height, new premium, lower-rolling resistance tires, a new spoiler and reduced brake caliper and rear bearing drag all contribute to Dodge Grand Caravan’s class-leading aerodynamics and excellent fuel economy.

An all-new, exclusive to the R/T, all-black interior features exclusive perforated black leather seats with red stitching, leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob and a premium sound system with nine-speakers, a subwoofer and 506-watt amplifier. Add in a performance-tuned suspension and the weekend warrior runs will never be the same.
With sleek, athletic styling, smart, cutting-edge entertainment features, flexible seating, cool storage options, the reliability of a 100,000-mile powertrain warranty and models that fit specific lifestyles, the new Dodge Grand Caravan moves families where they need to go in a way that makes the journey of life easier.

Arriving in U.S. dealer showrooms in the Spring of 2011, the R/T model will appeal mainly to customers who have driven a performance sedan, but need the flexibility and functionality of a minivan and are looking for a vehicle with superior handling and agility. The R/T is where extreme versatility meets performance and attitude.

The 2011 Dodge Grand Caravan R/T model has a starting U.S. MSRP of $30,595 (excluding $835 destination).

The R/T model is available in eight paint colors: Blackberry Pearl Coat, Bright Silver Metallic Clear Coat, Brilliant Black Crystal Pearl Coat, Deep Cherry Red Crystal Pearl Coat, Deep Water Blue Pearl Coat, Stone White Clear Coat, Mango Tango Pearl Coat and Dark Charcoal Pearl Coat.

The 2011 Dodge Grand Caravan is built at the Windsor Assembly plant in Windsor, Ontario, Canada.

2011 DODGE JOURNEY R/T DELIVERS WORLD-CLASS INTERIOR, UTILITY AND PERFORMANCE

The 2011 Dodge Journey also is getting the Dodge R/T badge for 2011. To back it up, the Journey R/T features the powerful new Pentastar V-6 engine, a re-engineered suspension geometry, premium tires and redesigned steering system that gives drivers a better response and feel of the road.

The 2011 Dodge Journey R/T is designed for customers who want a sporty, stylish, versatile vehicle to meet their active lifestyle demands. Like the Grand Caravan R/T, the Journey R/T is powered by the new 283 horsepower 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine mated to a six-speed transmission. It is available with front- or all-wheel drive and can seat five or seven passengers. From behind the wheel, the 2011 Dodge Journey R/T feels nimble, composed and handles well in all driving and road conditions.

The Journey’s interior is all new for 2011, and standard content on the R/T model includes a unique red and black cloth interior with six-way power driver seat with lumbar control, four-way power front passenger seat, three-zone automatic temperature control, leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter knob with red accent stitching, remote start, 19-inch aluminum wheels with satin carbon finish, body-colored grille, body-colored door handles, fog lamps and “R/T” badge.
In addition to the Journey’s gorgeous new interior, the R/T also features the latest and greatest in vehicle connectivity and customization with the Chrysler Group’s new PowerNet electrical architecture. The R/T model features Uconnect Touch 8.4 CD/DVD/MP3/SIRIUS Satellite radio with six premium speakers with subwoofer and amplifier and Uconnect phone. With navigation, voice-command music selections and the ability to check fuel prices and weather, the all-new Uconnect Touch media center makes drivers feel like they have the world at their fingertips.
