Chrysler Upgrading Stow ’N Go Seats for Minivans

Chrysler’s familiar Stow ’N Go seating system - which allows its people carriers to become handy cargo vans - is poised to receive an upgrade, according to a document filed with the US Patent and Trademark office.

Now operated by a one-button system that’s operating a single piece hinged to the floor to cover the seats, the feature will be updated to a two-piece design. One will be hinged to the back seat and one to the floor, enabling the second row seats to be stowed away without having to move the front row seats.

At the time of writing it isn’t clear if Chrysler will include the new Stow ‘G Go system in the minivan that will replace the current Town & Country and Dodge Grand Caravan in 2015 or beyond that model year.

Chrysler’s next-generation minivan could be introduced in late 2014, according to a senior official with the union that represents the workers at the Windsor Assembly Plant in Canada, who said that an announcement “could come any time now”.
