This more expensive cousin of the Dodge Grand Caravan is pleasant enough but is falling behind the competition from Honda and Toyota. Interior flexibility got a boost with the introduction of the 2005 model, which has flat-folding second- and third-row seats, but noise levels increased. This setup eliminates the AWD model. The minivan rides well with a light load and handles securely. The 3.8-liter V6 engine isn't as smooth, quiet, or fuel efficient as the engines in the Odyssey and Sienna. IIHS offset and side crash-test results are unimpressive.
