The Dodge Grand Caravan continues on, as its corporate sibling Chrysler Town & Country has been replaced, complete with a new name: Pacifica. The Dodge offers a lower price, but there is no escaping the reality that this is an older design that falls short as a family road-trip machine. For instance, the second-row seats are thin, low, and uncomfortable. Although the 283-hp V6 is powerful, its fuel economy is lousy at just 17 mpg overall--the worst among all minivans in our tests. And the van scored a Poor in the IIHS small-overlap frontal crash test. Don't be swayed by the massive incentives that will probably be available on this minivan, already the cheapest one on the market.

Road Test

Chrysler might have invented the modern minivan, but time has marched on, leaving the Dodge Grand Caravan feeling dated and past their prime. The new for 2017 Chrysler Pacifica and major competitors, the Honda Odyssey and Toyota Sienna, are both far...

Highs

  • Very utilitarian, with plenty of room and big cargo bins beneath the floor
  • Rides comfortably and has a quiet cabin

Lows

  • 17 mpg is worse than many all-wheel drive SUVs
  • Scored Poor in IIHS small overlap crash test

Best Version to Get

We'd go all the way to the top GT trim, adding the Safety Sphere group for its blind-spot monitoring and other safety aids.
