2017 Chrysler Pacifica, 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan: Fire stops production

Production of the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica and 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan minivans has been put on hold for a week due to a fire at a supplier’s factory.

Both the new Chrysler Pacifica and the ageing, fleet oriented Dodge Grand Caravan are produced FCA’s plant in Windsor, Ontario.

Production will stopped for a week starting on Monday November 7. The plant was already scheduled for a day off on Friday November 11, as part of Canada’s Remembrance Day public holiday.

The fire that’s halting production took place at Magneti-Marelli’s factory in Pulaski, Tennessee. The FCA owned supplier builds lighting components for the two minivans.
