AUBURN HILLS, Mich., – Chrysler Group minivan customers can now get the latest innovation from the company that invented the segment. Arriving in dealerships now on the Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town & Country is the new dual-screen Blu-Ray DVD rear-seat entertainment system. This system plays both Blu-Ray and standard DVDs, and has standard higher-resolution screens for the 2013 model year.
“With 78 minivan-first innovations, Chrysler Group continues to lead the segment in created in 1983,” said Joe Veltri, Vice President – Product Planning, Chrysler Group LLC. “This new Blu-Ray DVD system raises the bar in minivan rear-seat entertainment systems, and is the latest in a long line of innovations like Stow ‘n Go seating and a selectable fuel economizer mode.”
The Blu-Ray video system features segment-exclusive second- and third-row screens capable of playing two different DVDs at the same time. Nine-inch screens in the second and third rows feature four-times better resolution when compared with previous models and allow customers to watch their movies on Blu-Ray or standard DVDs or play their High-Definition Media Interface (HDMI) gaming systems. This HD system also includes two USB ports, one HDMI port and 115-volt power inverter so that customers can charge their cell phones, MP3 players, laptops, tablets and gaming systems. The system also features a standard RCA input and 12-volt outlet. Two wireless headsets and a wireless remote allow the rear-seat passengers to enjoy their favorite video or gaming systems in the minivans’ second and third rows without disrupting mom or dad in the front seats.
The 2013 Chrysler Town & Country and Dodge Grand Caravan minivans are built at Chrysler Group LLC’s Windsor Assembly Plant in Windsor, Ontario, Canada.
