Dodge Grand Caravan Overview

The Grand Caravan still falls short of the best minivans. Like its Town & Country sibling, high points include a comfortable and settled ride, and a quiet, well-equipped cabin that offers considerable versatility. The second- and third-row seats conveniently fold into the floor, a helpful feature that maximizes cargo space, but compromises seating posture because the seats are thinner and less supportive. Though the 283-hp V6 is polished and powerful enough, the transmission is a generation behind, and fuel economy is unimpressive at 17 mpg overall. Everyday handling is sound but becomes sloppy when the van is pushed to its limits. Reliability has been below average.
