2011 model year changes

The 2011 Routan has few changes from last year. Among them, last year's engine lineup has been changed. All Routans now get the new Chrysler-sourced 3.6L V6 as the sole engine configuration. Meteor Gray, Cocoa Bean and Antigua Blue paints are no longer available, replaced with Twilight Gray and Deep Claret, and the standard stereo got a significant upgrade on the SEL, adding 2nd and 3rd-row video screens and iPod integration.

Special features for 2011

The Routan appeals to minivan buyers who want a little more style and verve in their family hauler. Clean Volkswagen design cues dominate inside and out, and the Routan features a "European-tuned" suspension that's more handling-oriented than other minivans. A new, more powerful V6 is available for 2011, and should prompt minivan buyers to take a second look at the Volkswagen minivan.
