CARS.COM — We strived to answer the question of “What’s the Ultimate Minivan?” with our latest multi-car challenge, but ultimate is taken to new levels at the 2016 Specialty Equipment Market Association Show. Chrysler and Toyota unveiled minivan concepts at the show, and these tricked-out vans will do more than just road trips and carpools.

2017 Toyota Extreme Sienna

A hot rod minivan only exists in Dad’s dreams, right? Toyota and hot rod builder Rick Leos collaborated on the real thing. The Extreme Sienna takes on a sporty look with a lower, wider body that wears plenty of carbon fiber, a spoiler, TRD brakes, performance wheels and tires, and dual exhaust. 

Inside, upgrades include a top-of-the-line home theater system, reclining seats with custom upholstery, a refrigerator, Wi-Fi connectivity and a Bluetooth speaker. All of it — even the air suspension — is controlled via iPad. Check out the gallery below.

2017 Chrysler Pacifica Cadence

Minivans aren’t just for soccer moms and dads; Chrysler’s newest concept plays to the paddleboarding set. The Chrysler Pacifica Cadence wears custom Mopar paddleboard graphics wrapped on the quarter panel, hood and and rear of the white van. It also rides on tri-color 20-inch wheels tinted in Satin Black and Gloss Black tones with Mopar blue accents. Backing up the themed graphics are a Mopar/Thule paddleboard-surfboard carrier on top, able to transport a 9-foot board.

Wait, the family dog likes paddleboarding, too? No problem: The Cadence has a pet kennel for Fido’s safety. Other interior upgrades include a wireless charging system for mobile devices, a first aid kit and all-weather floor and cargo mats. Check out the gallery below.
