    Chrysler (Dodge) will be bringing vastly improved mini-vans to market in a couple of months. They also have a full range of vans/crossovers in the works with Fiat that will give the Chrysler group a significant (dominant) position in this market. The mini-van market will become a Chrysler play ground shortly. Why not they invented it!

    Finally a sensible vehicle for the masses, about time!!!
    I'm still very fond of my drivers chassis Mercury Mistake. Bang for the buck not everyone wants to spent every last bit of their disposable income on a vehicle. Back in 60's yes but not with todays crowded non-drivers out there!!!

    I forgot to add what about 2012 Focus Wagon model got to less money without sliding doors and fancy 2nd seats. Even more bang-for-the-buck, although I have seen the dimensions for C-Max and a wagon but the seems to longer???

    Ford has a chance to carve out a nice little niche with this vehicle. To succeed they need to deliver 5 or more mpg than the full sized minivans. They also need to stay well below the price of the Sienna and Odyssey. If they could add all wheel drive - possibly by adding electric motors to the rear wheels for the hybrid model - they might steal sales from the Outback.
