2013 Dodge Grand Caravan Overview

In 1984 Dodge created the first minivan, the Caravan. Despite firm competition, the Caravan (and now Grand Caravan) remains the standard bearer for what a minivan should be. Even so, other manufacturers have bridged the once-massive gap for families in need of a versatile seven-passenger vehicle. Dodge continues to push the envelope and remain at the forefront of minivan excellence, with innovative storage capabilities, second-row captain chairs, and a well-designed and thoughtful interior.

The Grand Caravan is powered by a 3.6 liter V6 engine with 283 horsepower and 260 foot-pound of torque. Front-wheel-drive and a six-speed automatic transmission are standard. This engine still manages to produce a respectable 17 mpg city and 25 mpg highway. Available in five trim levels, the Grand Caravan has a robust list of standard features and options, allowing drivers to customize the vehicle to their needs.

What separates the Grand Caravan from many other minivans is interior design. The materials are solid and of high quality. It comfortably seats seven, and the seats are comfortable and supportive. Second row captain's chairs are a welcome addition, and legroom is plentiful. Third row seating is slightly cramped though. Second row seats can be easily removed, creating a massive amount of storage capacity. Third row seats fold down as well. All told, there's 143.8 cubic feet of storage, putting the Grand Caravan on par with the competition.

Driving the Grand Caravan is much like driving any other minivan, for better or worse. The V6 engine is better than some of the four-cylinder options found in the competition, but it's not quite as strong as others. The engine accelerates at a decent rate and the ride quality is firm and quiet, though the suspension is a bit stiff.

Overall the Grand Caravan offers drivers ample interior space, seven-passenger seating, versatility, and a comfortable driving experience. A wide array of options and the adaptability of the well-designed interior make the Caravan a great choice for families on the go.
