The Volkswagen Routan is a seven-seat minivan and rebadged variant of the Chrysler RT platform, with revised styling, content features, and suspension tuning from the fifth-generation Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town & Country.[1][2][3][4][5]

Manufactured alongside the Chrysler minivans at Windsor Assembly and marketed in the United States, Canada, and Mexico, the Routan debuted at the 2008 Chicago Auto Show and went on sale in the United States in September 2008.

The Routan’s minivan nameplate variants — including the Plymouth and Chrysler Voyager along with the currently marketed Dodge Caravan and Chrysler Town & Country — have ranked as the 13th bestselling automotive nameplate worldwide, with over 12 million sold.[6]

The Routan resulted from a 2005 partnership between Volkswagen and DaimlerChrysler. Prior to the agreement, Volkswagen had no minvan model for the United States or Canadian markets. VW announced in an early 2008 projection that the company intended for the Routan and other models to help achieve significant expansion of U.S. sales.[7] The Routan is Volkswagen’s first van offered in North America since discontinuation of the Volkswagen Eurovan in 2003, and is not related to the European-market Volkswagen Touran.[8]
