Dodge Grand Caravan Reviews

2015 Grand Caravan
The 2015 Dodge Grand Caravan is the latest in Canada’s favourite minivan for over 30 years, so it’s no surprise to find that it offers more to Swift Current and Saskatoon drivers than the 2015 Honda Odyssey, 2015 Toyota Sienna, and the 2015 Kia Sedona. Here’s how the competition stacks up – and is found wanting – in the Dodge Grand Caravan reviews.

Price

The 2015 Dodge Grand Caravan starts at just $19,895, with the Canada Value Package (CVP), but makes no compromises when it comes to providing Swift Current and Saskatoon drivers with plenty of standard features. The CVP includes a celebrated Uconnect 130 multimedia centre, dual-zone temperature control for added comfort, and a steering wheel with mounted audio and cruise controls.No competitor boasts that same list of features, but each demands far more of your wallet:

  • The 2015 Honda Odyssey: The Odyssey starts at $30,350 – over $10,000 more than the Dodge.
  • The 2015 Toyota Sienna: The Sienna starts at $31,040 – over $11,000 more than the Dodge.
  • The 2015 Kia Sedona: The Sedona starts at $27,495 – still more than $7,500 greater than the Grand Caravan’s base-price.

Power

Minivans aren’t built for speed, but they still need strong, reliable engines beneath the hood to keep your ride responsive while fully laden with both passengers and cargo. Dodge decided to use one of the best in the industry: a 3.6L Pentastar V6. Featured among Ward’s 10 Best Engines three times, this powerhouse can deliver a best-in-class 283 hp.

It makes you wonder why the competition demands such a vastly larger asking price when you stop to consider their inferior engines:

  • 2015 Honda Odyssey: The Odyssey’s 3.5L i-VTEC puts you in control of only 248 hp – the worst of the bunch.
  • 2015 Toyota Sienna: Sienna drivers will need to make do with 266 hp from a 3.5L engine.
  • 2015 Kia Sedona: The Sedona uses a 3.3L V6 DOHC to produce an acceptable 276 hp, still appreciably less than the Grand Caravan.
