- Repair & Care
Dodge overhauled its Grand Caravan minivan for 2011, giving it a vastly nicer interior, improvements to its Stow 'n Go seating and a new V-6 engine. With room for seven in three rows of seats, the Grand Caravan competes against the Honda Odyssey and Toyota Sienna, and it's related to the Chrysler Town & Country.
New for 2013
The Grand Caravan's base price has been reduced by $1,000 for 2013. Newly available features include a dual-screen Blu-Ray entertainment system that includes an HDMI input for video game systems and two USB ports for charging mobile devices. Trailer-sway control is newly standard.
ExteriorYou have to hand it to Dodge for making a minivan look aggressive. The 2013 Grand Caravan features Dodge's trademark crosshair grille, and the minivan's face gives it quite a bit of road presence. The Grand Caravan R/T sports a unique monochromatic exterior with its own 17-inch aluminum wheels. Other exterior features include:
InteriorThe Grand Caravan's dashboard wouldn't be out of place in a luxury car. It features premium, low-gloss materials and mostly good fit-and-finish. Apart from a few things, like the airplane-style map lights that Dodge insists on using, the Grand Caravan has a top-rate minivan interior.
A second-row bench seat is standard, and the available Stow 'n Go second-row bucket seats have a one-touch folding feature. Lift a lever, and the seat articulates forward and into a bin in the floor. You do have to move the front seats forward quite a bit to give the middle seats the clearance to tumble into the floor, but when you do, the one-touch lever makes the operation simple. R/T minivans have black leather seats with red stitching. Other interior features include:
Under the Hood
