For the 2021 model year, there will be two redesigned and two significantly refreshed models hitting the market in addition to the Dodge Caravan, which is finally getting the axe.

Below is a list of the best-selling minivans through September 3, 2020. Many automakers report their sales results quarterly. These rankings have been determined using sales numbers provided by the individual automobile manufacturers. FCA rolls its Chrysler Voyager sales into Pacifica sales (they share most of the same components).

The vehicles on this list are bound to change order as new information becomes available. Stay tuned!

No. 5 - Kia Sedona (9,086 sold)

The Kia Sedona has been completely redesigned for the 2021 model year. The 2020 model is still on U.S. lots and delivers a lot of bang for its buck - just like most of the rest of the Kia lineup. The Sedan comfortably and confidently gets passengers to and fro.

No. 4 - Toyota Sienna (24,657 sold)

Toyota has redesigned the Sienna for 2021, giving it only a hybrid powertrain and offering more polarizing looks. If you'd rather have a straight up gasoline-powered Sienna, you'll want to head to the Toyota lot sooner rather than later to grab a 2020 model before they run out.

No. 3 - Dodge Grand Caravan (30,222 sold)

The Dodge Grand Caravan has finally reached the end of the road. It's in the process of being replaced by the similarly priced but nicer appointed Chrysler Voyager.

No. 2 - Chrysler Pacifica (35,549 sold)

The Chrysler Pacifica is a well-designed family hauler that comes in a traditional gasoline-powered variant as well as a plug-in hybrid model. It has gobs of passenger space and sits a little lower to the ground than the Odyssey and Sienna while still giving good forward visibility. It will be significantly refreshed for 2021.

No. 1 - Honda Odyssey (51,847 sold)

The Honda Odyssey gets a significant facelift for 2021 with a shuffling of the packages and trim levels that actually lowers the price of the mid-grade model a significant amount. The car can come loaded with some neat tech like CabinWatch, which puts a camera view of the rear seats on the infotainment screen.

Hyundai Motor Group, the parent company of Hyundai, has announced the formation of a new unit - New Horizons Studio. The new venture is focused on the development of what Hyundai calls Ultimate Mobility Vehicles (UMVs).

New Horizons Studio is part of Hyundai's larger focus on the future of mobility. Unit workers will work to envision vehicles that wander with "unprecedented mobility". These products will focus on target customers that have unconventional travel needs whether it be to access places they have never been or adapt their mobility limitations to their surroundings.

New Horizons Studio is led by Vice President Dr. John Suh, who has held several leadership roles at Hyundai Motor Group since 2011. He served as founding director of Hyundai Ventures, and then led Hyundai CRADLE (Center for Robotic-Augmented Design in Living Experiences) as its founding director based in Silicon Valley. He brings over 35 years of expertise in the automotive and emerging technology sectors, including roles at Stanford University, Palo Alto Research Center (PARC; formerly, Xerox PARC), and General Motors Company.

"We aim to create the world's first transformer-class vehicle, also known as the Ultimate Mobility Vehicle," said Dr. Suh.

Dr. Ernestine Fu will move to New Horizons Studio as Director of Product Management. She has led research on human operator and autonomous vehicle interactions at Stanford University's Volkswagen Automotive Innovation Lab, as well as scaled emerging technology companies for over nine years as a venture capital partner at Alsop Louie Partners.

The Hyundai Elevate is the first vehicle being developed by the Studio. It debuted at CES 2019 and does not rely solely on wheels to makes it way across urban, suburban, and rural landscapes. The unit sees the Elevate as being able to respond in emergency situations like natural disasters or assist with persons who do not have access to an ADA ramp.

Expressions in color and trim meet at the Urus Graphite Capsule, a collection of SUVs produced by super luxury automaker Lamborghini. The Urus itself sits at the intersection of performance and practicality, and is the best-selling model in the Lamborghini lineup.

The Urus Graphite Capsule lets buyers push the limit in a pick-and-choose fashion. Lamborghini will offer the Urus Graphite Capsule in four new exterior matte colors including white Bianco Monocerus, black Nero Noctis, and grey Grigio Nimbus and Grigio Keres. The lower parts of the car, the front, rear, and side sills, are all finished in the color.

From there, buyers are able to choose from four tiny accent colors: orange Arancio Leonis and Arancio Dryope, yellow Giallo Taurus, and green Verde Scandal. Those accent colors are shown on the front splitter, door inserts, and rear spoiler.

The cabin of the Urus sports the same traditional design the SUV has had during this, its initial generation. The Urus Graphite Capsule check box adds dark, anodized aluminium trim on the dashboard and door panels, with new matt-finish carbon fiber inserts. The buyer's choice of exterior colors are carried over to the inside where upholstery is contrast stitched. Q-citura stitching and the embroidered Lamborghini logo reside on the headrests.

The ventilated Alcantara seats are an exclusive option only available on the Urus Graphite Capsule and the recently launched Pearl Capsule.

"The new Graphite Capsule endorses the inimitable versatility of the Lamborghini Urus as the original Super SUV: its color and styling is as adaptable and versatile as its presence in every high-performance and lifestyle environment." said Automobili Lamborghini Chief Commercial Officer Giovanni Perosino. "The inherent design of the Lamborghini Urus, with the DNA of our super sports heritage, lends itself to virtually limitless potential for personalizing color and trim. The Urus Graphite Capsule is the latest collection to offer our growing clientele the opportunity to stamp their individuality and way of life on their Lamborghini."

The Urus Graphite Capsule is available on Urus model year 2021. It has a starting MSRP of $218,009 in the U.S.
