(continued from above)

New for the 2011 model year, all Routans are powered by a new 3.6L engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission which provides 283 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. The 2011 Routan is equipped with a six-speed automatic transmission. Function follows form in the 2011 Routan with EPA fuel economy numbers of 17 mpg city and 25 mpg highway for the 3.6L. The Routan is offered in seven trim levels with pricing starting under $28,000, making it standout in the segment a true driver's minivan.


Distinctions continue along the Routan's exterior, with aggressively angled headlights containing quad halogen lamps (High Intensity Gas-discharged (HID) units on the SEL Premium), complimenting a chrome trimmed grille. The SEL Premium also includes halogen fog lamps integrated into the lower front bumper. Depending on the trim level, matte black, body-colored, or chrome side mirrors and door handles are used. Splash guards and convenient full running boards with skid-resistant surfaces can also be ordered. New for 2011, are stowable roof racks added to SE and SEL models, allowing quick and easy transformation. The Routan finishes with a spoiler and integrated third brake light sitting atop the rear hatch, uniquely styled tail lamps, and an extra low bumper with step plate to make loading and removal of items that much easier.


To accommodate the needs of today's families, the Routan features standard 12V power outlets and an available 115V AC outlet for powering up phones, MP3 players, and game consoles. For 2011, all-new Sierra Stone beige interior color is available in Leatherette or Leather seating surfaces. New perforated front row seating with pillow top armrests and second row captain's chairs offer an increased level of luxury and comfort. The convenience of a traditional minivan is here with up to 144 cubic feet of space available with the second row removed, and the third row stowed.

All 2011 Routan models include an all new leather-wrapped steering wheel with multi-function controls, a leather-wrapped shift knob, and a full assortment of gauges to keep the driver in the know. Underfoot is a high-density carpet, complete with matching floor mats, which add to the overall interior appeal.

Additional intelligent storage solutions can be found with dual glove boxes, a floor console with cup holders, an available highline console with a large storage compartment, available ceiling storage, door sill and rear quarter storage bins, various cargo nets, and a variety of coat and bag and purse hooks throughout. Airline style LED reading lights are ready in all three seating rows, while sunshades keep unwanted light from shining through the power windows on the SE, SEL and SEL Premium models, in addition to standard privacy glass. For extra sunshine and fresh air, the SEL and SEL Premium add a power sunroof.
