In the 1980s, minivans weighed 3400 pounds. Current offerings by GM, and Chrysler weigh about 1000 pounds more. That 1000 pounds means increased rolling resistance and less efficiency.

Really bad timing. If Ford or GM were smart, they would reenter the minivan market with a smaller, lighter minivan. A hybrid drivetrain would be a good idea, too.

1000 pounds probably in government-mandated safety equipment. it's a trade off.
