The Generation II minvans, constructed on the AS platform was equipped with an optional V6 engine and in a new long wheel-base version. The Generation III (NS) minivan production began in 1995 — with dual sliding doors. Starting in July 2000 the Generation IV (RS) minivan, which included the Stow'n Go seating, was produced until July 2007. In August 2007 the Generation IV (RT) minivan was introduced which continues with the Stow 'n Go and features the new Swivel'n Go seating.

Windsor Assembly started assembling the new Volkswagen Routan (RM) on the same platform as the Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town & Country models in August 2008. With the closure of Windsor Assembly's sister plant in St. Louis Missouri, in late October 2008, the diesel, cargo and right hand drive minivans will be produced at Windsor Assembly by the start of 2009.
