The Grand Caravan is an iconic vehicle, and it has been a beloved presence on the market for over 30 years. Customers have long turned to the Dodge Grand Caravan for a reliable and safe experience, and for 2017, this minivan still manages to appeal to the whole family with its incredible versatility. For the new model year, Dodge has updated the trim lineup to include the SE, SE Plus, SXT, and GT trims. One of the most exciting additions to the Grand Caravan will come later in the model year's production when all the trims will gain a rearview camera and a touchscreen interface. Additionally, the SE will gain the Blacktop appearance package as a standard feature later in the year.
Under the Grand Caravan's Hood
The Grand Caravan has a terrific powertrain that is efficient, responsive, and dynamic for a variety of driving environments. The minivan is powered by the award-winning 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine that delivers 260 lb-ft of torque and 283 horsepower. A front-wheel drive system is standard, and the engine is linked to a six-speed automatic transmission which shifts smoothly and offers an engaging driving experience. The Grand Caravan can go from 0 to 60 mph in just 8 seconds, and the economical powertrain can offer 17 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway.
Design of Dodge Grand Caravan
There are four trim levels available with the Grand Caravan: the base SE, SE Plus, SXT, and GT. The Grand Caravan has seating for seven passengers, and not only are the trims well-equipped but they are available with a variety of packages for increased entertainment, comfort, and connectivity. The Grand Caravan offers an amazing value with their base SE model. The exterior features 17-inch steel wheels and heated mirrors. The interior is comfortable with tri-zone climate control and comfortable seating. Drivers will like the tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel with audio controls and cruise control. The fantastic Stow 'n Go system comes standard, and this offers a convenient second-row bench seat that can fold into the floor when additional cargo space is needed. Later in the model year, the Grand Caravan will gain a rearview camera and a 6.5-inch touchscreen display. An optional Uconnect Hands-Free Group package offered with the SE will add an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a USB port, as well as a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter.
