Dodge is cutting off one of the hands that has fed it well for the past quarter century. A more upscale version of the Grand Caravan is also sold as the Chrysler Town and Country, which was the best-selling minivan in the United States in 2010. The two combined for over 225,000 sales last year, double that of their closest rival, the Honda Odyssey. The Town and Country will live on as the automaker’s only minivan offering.

In an interview with Automotive News, Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne revealed that the Dodge Grand Caravan minivan will die in 2013 and be replaced by a crossover utility vehicle. The decision is part of a larger plan to eliminate duplication of vehicles among Chrysler’s four brands – Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep and Ram. The Grand Caravan is currently the top-selling Dodge model.
