co-worker just bought a Chevy Uplander minivan
It's not a bad minivan, just seems pretty plain compared to the offerings put out by other manufacturers. Maybe the minivan era is over and we're just going to see people in crossovers from now on?
10 Chevy Traverse LT AWD
02 Chevy Trailblazer LS (110K+ miles - loaded except for 4WD - WRECKED!)
99 Chevy Cavalier LS (105K+ miles - commuter car)
78 Chevy Suburban Silverado (454, 3/4 ton)
62 GMC 3/4 ton Pickup (350 police interceptor)

That would be my guess. It seems over the last several years minivans in general have been half-hearted attempts at just making a new design but not really pursuing innovation. Many crossovers are beginning to have comparable seating and utility anyway; aside from the sliding doors obviously.

last van my parents had was a 87 astro. i drove it for most of a year before they donated it, had over 215k on the clock, original 4.3, and original tranny, pulled the boat, utility trailer, various other odds and ends. still ran good when they donated it for a tax break.
the vans now are not built near as tough as they used to be.
id rather have a crew cab now anyhow.
