Dodge Grand Caravan

2018 Dodge Grand Caravan

Pros: Passenger and cargo versatility; affordable base prices

Cons: Lackluster handling and road holding; interior trimmings aren’t as upscale as competitive minivans; large turning radius hampers close-quarter maneuverability

CG Says: The 2018 Dodge Grand Caravan is unchanged. With the introduction of the Chrysler Pacifica minivan, FCA dropped the Chrysler Town & Country. However, Caravan production continues as a low-cost alternative to the more modern and luxurious Pacifica. The Grand Caravan minvan has three rows of seats for up to seven passengers. A 283-horsepower 3.6-liter V6 mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission is the sole powertrain. Grand Caravan’s durable interior materials and low pricing are appealing in their own rights. Grand Caravan still has excellent cargo flexibility. It might not have the outstanding ride/handling combination of the Honda Odyssey or the Toyota Sienna’s available all-wheel drive, but Grand Caravan might have the best overall balance of the primary attributes that are most attractive to minivan shoppers. Its overall excellence and low price should earn it a spot on your shopping list.
