Dodge Grand Caravan
In the mid-1980s, the Dodge Grand Caravan introduced Canadian families to the minivan concept, and it’s remained the top model in its segment ever since. Enjoying a reputation as Canada’s favourite minivan for over thirty years, the Grand Caravan is ever a favourite among Swift Current and Saskatoon families. Innovations have continued to appear, from the driver-side sliding door to Stow ‘n Go seats – it’s hard to imagine the minivan segment without the Grand Caravan.
Alongside practical advances, newer models have demonstrated a renewed attention to comfort. While previous generations remained relatively Spartan, new Grand Caravan models boast plenty of premium features and a remarkably high standard of cabin design. Ultimately, the Grand Caravan represents everything that drivers could wish for in a minivan.
What Are You Looking For?
Few vehicles had as great a legacy to live up to as the 2015 Dodge Grand Caravan, but it still managed to surpass expectations. A strong ride is provided by a 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine across all trim levels. Able to deliver 283 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque, this is the most powerful engine in the segment, delivering car-like driving dynamics to this high-capacity vehicle.
Interior versatility has also been optimized. Swift Current and Saskatoon drivers will be able to customize their cabin into 81 possible interior seating and cargo configurations, and enjoy class-leading concealed storage space to keep everything safe and secure. Industry-Exclusive second-row Super Stow ‘N Go seats maximize space, while an available power liftgate makes loading and unloading a breeze.
The Dodge Grand Caravan has remained an industry favourite since its introduction, and it continues to enjoy strong reviews from industry experts:
- “The Grand Caravan boasts the most powerful V6 engine in its class, a cleanly finished and modern interior, plus lots of high-tech and family-friendly features like the Stow ‘n Go seating system” – Kelley Blue Book
- “The latest Grand Caravan still is one of the most functional vehicles you can buy … At any price, you get the most useful cabin and the best-executed infotainment features in the segment.” – The Car Connection
- “For Dodge, the 2015 Grand Caravan essentially is the culmination of everything most minivan buyers over the years proved was most important in a family hauler.” – Edmunds.com
Chrysler has not yet announced any details concerning the 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan. However, a potential prototype was spotted under heavy camouflage, so industry experts have been able to make a few predictions.
The upcoming Grand Caravan appears to be built around the same platform as the Dodge Dart and Chrysler 200, so they’re expected to be sleeker and more fun to drive. Chrysler has hinted that new models could enjoy a plug-in hybrid option, while an optional diesel engine is also possible. We can’t wait to find out more.
