Chrysler Group is continuing to upgrade its patented Stow 'n Go seats in order to make them easier for consumers to use. First introduced in 2005 model year minivans, the seats were upgraded in 2008 allowing for one-button operation using a single piece hinged to the floor to cover the collapsed seat. The new patented design uses two pieces, one hinged to the back seat and one hinged to the floor, so that drivers will no loner have to move the front row seats all the way forward in order to stow the second row.
Although the newly redesigned Stow 'n Go seats will be incorporated into future minivans, the company has declined to state whether or not they will be installed into its 2015 luxury crossover minivans due to replace Chrysler Town & Country and Dodge Grand Caravan minivans or other future vehicles.
Chrysler minivans, including the Dodge Caravan (first introduced in 1989) have been rated as the 13th bestselling automotive nameplates worldwide, with over 12 million sold.
