New 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan at Kolosso for Appleton,
The 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan is an exceptional value among minivans, but some crash-test scores are cause for concern. The Dodge Grand Caravan has been Chrysler's family road warrior for generations, ever since it was introduced in 1983 as, simply, the Caravan. The most flexible minivan on the market today, it's also a nine-year-old offering that doesn't keep pace with the latest crash-test scores, while it easily outpoints its rivals with a superior seating system and matches them for features that make long-distance trips go smoothly. It remains one of the best choices for carrying up to eight passengers--and for keeping them entertained along the way.
Under the Grand Caravan's Hood
Chrysler makes it simple to order a Dodge Grand Caravan, at least from a driving perspective. The minivan is offered in one basic flavor--with front-wheel drive, a six-speed automatic transmission, and a powerful V-6 engine. The V-6 is the top performer in its class, according to the spec sheet, with 283 horsepower. Rivals are close, but none of them has the Dodge's sense of vivid acceleration. The 3.6-liter Grand Caravan six snaps to attention via its six-speed automatic, and though it's not the smoothest engine in its class, it's a very strong performer that also delivers up to 25 miles per gallon highway. Torquey and responsive at low and mid-range speeds, the drivetrain duo is up to the task of hauling a full load of passengers or cargo.
Design of Grand Caravan
The Dodge Grand Caravan wears a shape that telegraphs what it's all about: storage. It's a box, without the slightly more curved add-ons applied to the Quest, Odyssey, and Sienna--and that's fine. It's a clean design that's held up well in its nine model years on the market. Inside, the pleasant reworking from the 2011 model year still looks fine and functions well. With the improved finishes that came in the 2011 model year, the Grand Caravan comes off as more substantial than it has in the past, back in the years when the same cabin had lots of hard, grainy plastic. The lack of clutter and the slim, relatively low dash lend it an airy feel. It's a pragmatic shape, with few details to distinguish it from the Chrysler Town & Country. The Dodge cross-hair grille is its most recognizable difference from its sibling, and LED taillights are a cue shared with the more sporty offerings in the Dodge lineup.
