2018 Dodge Grand Caravan in Duluth, GA

The 2018 Dodge Grand Caravan is the Steady and Not-So-Slow Way to Win the Race

First introduced in 1984, the Dodge Grand Caravan hasn't budged an inch in its commitment to remain a top-rated, versatile, and affordable minivan option for families who value function far over flair. It may still be that Dodge will eventually discontinue the Grand Caravan to give the full spotlight to the Chrysler Pacifica, but for now, it's just too good to lose. For 2018, trim levels include the SE, SE Plus, SXT, and GT.

A Thoughtful and Spacious Interior

The cabin of the Grand Caravan was made for comfort on long road trips--which means that you can ride happy even on short trips around town. The front seats are deep and plush, and even the third-row seats offer some nice elbow room. The 2018 Dodge Grand Caravan does offer FCA's famous Stow-n-Go seats, so you can really make the most out of your interior space, which comes out to about 143 cubic feet with seats completely put away.



Basic Looks Good

The exterior of the Grand Caravan is easily the most modest and subtle of the entire Dodge brand lineup--but, as the designated multi-kid family vehicle, that's not particularly surprising. The Durango fills the slot of "Exciting Family Car", so the Grand Caravan is free to focus its design efforts on maximizing interior space and aerodynamics.

Strong Minivan Performance

The 2018 Dodge Grand Caravan comes standard with a 3.6-liter V6 engine and a six-speed automatic transmission, good for 283 horsepower, and front-wheel-drive only. It's a classic powertrain, but it's aged well and is still one of the most fun and agile engines that you can get on a minivan these days. Fuel economy is about average for the Grand Caravan versus other minivan rivals.

Compelling Connectivity

The 2018 Grand Caravan doesn't have quite so many bells and whistles as some of its more tech-savvy competitors--but its most-expensive GT trim level also starts under $35,000, which is significantly lower than top-tier trims of those same competitors. Some minivans on the market can quickly get up toward a $50,000 price point, which is not affordable for many families. The Grand Caravan offers plenty, though, with options like a 6.5-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a rear-seat DVD system, blind-spot warning, rear cross-path detection, and rear parking assist.
