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.
