Chrysler Offers Blu-Ray Systems As Options on Minivans

Blu-ray systems promise to keep the kids quiet

Chrysler has announced a segment exclusive Blu-ray DVD system is now available as an option on its minivans. Sure minivans are boring and nobody really wants to drive one, but if you have kids or a lot of people to haul around a minivan can be a blessing. If that minivan lets your kids play SpongeBob SquarePants for the millionth time leaving you in peace during your road trip, all the better.

Chrysler is offering the Blu-ray DVD system on both the Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town & Country. It's unclear exactly how much the optional Blu-ray system costs, but you get two screens that each play their own movies.

The optional entertainment system also has two USB ports that allow the recharging of the gadgets along with the 115 V power inverter. The screens are situated for viewing by the second and third row passengers and the system has an HDMI input for game systems.

Sep 30 2014 9:59am CDT | Source: Car and Driver

It’s become somewhat of a tradition for American automakers to auction off early examples of their performance automobiles for charity. Over the weekend, Sergio’s brigade put the very first Challenger SRT Hellcat off the line up for bid at Barrett-Jackson’s Las Vegas auction. When the gavel came down at Mandalay Bay, the stonking Dodge had hit $825,000. $825,000. For a shortened Chrysler 300 with a blower, a headlamp glory hole, and some b ...

Not Astron! Asterion! Photos Appear of Reported Lamborghini Mega-Hybrid Set for Paris Debut

Sep 29 2014 2:09pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

In the early 1970s, Lamborghini was setting the world on its ear with the futuristic Countach and their Italianate take on the AMC Marlin, the mighty Espada. Mitsubishi, on the other hand, was working hard to integrate twin balance shafts into a modest overhead-cam four-banger. The result of these endeavors? Old man Ferruccio bailed on the company he founded in 1974. The company, though it became an ’80s-bedroom-wall sensation, didn’t find true success until it fell into ...
