I know that the 95-96 model of the Oldsmobile Silhouette was the first in the GM family to have a power door. In 1997 when the new models came out all the vans had it as an option. So GM was really the first to have it. Chrysler was the first to have dual-power sliding doors.

Acually 94 Trans Sport had it as an option.

1994 Pontiac Montana: A shorter nose and a new driver-side airbag are the primary changes Pontiac makes to the 1994 Trans Sport. The new front end cuts two inches off the minivan's overall length, but still includes integrated fog lamps. At the rear, a new center high-mount stoplight has been added. A power sliding side door becomes an option for the Trans Sport. The power sliding door can be activated by buttons inside the vehicle or on the remote-entry keyfob and is designed to stop and reverse direction when it encounters an obstacle.

OIC THANKS!

I think that this feature is the best thing on a minivan. It is really helpful when having kids or cargo, and the power lift-gate is even better when your hands are full of stuff. Too bad GM never had that as an option on the CSV's.
