I own this van with the 3.3 Liter V6, and it was factory modified. It puts out around 200 hp to the ground! This van will easily spin the tires, and aceleration is that of a sports car! The interior is nice, could be a little more roomy but looks good and designed nicely. As for the exterior well lets just say that it screams "dont be messin"! The headlights look like the van is glaring at traffic, and the rear is streamlined and sporty. The van is shaped like a bullet, and cuts through the air like one also! The handling is great, and sticks to the road during high-speed highway cornering like a dream. It never slows down, and likes to be let loose. The brakes are outstanding! They stop on a dime. I plan on installing performance rotors and calibers. I also have a perfromance air intake on this van, and the engine temperature never goes to the extreme, always stays middle. I have Toyo touring radials on the van, and they are very performance oriented, never failing to cling to the road, even in the pouring rain. This van is crazy, and a great achievement for Dodge. I have blown away many young kids that think a minivan is still running the typical 4 banger. But when I open up the throttle to the 3.3 liter V6 it springs to life, throws you back in your seat, the tires screech, and the smile flys of the oppenents face! I plan on dropping in a 3.8 liter V6, and maybe a turbocharger to the existing engine in the near future! If you are looking for a minivan that you can have fun with, and that is comfortable, pleasing to the eyes, and made in the good ole' USA, then this van is the van for you. I like to call it the family mans budget hot-rod!

Love Dodge Caravans

by from Coldwater, MI on March 23, 2017

Got a new 2017 Dodge Caravan and planning trips for our retirement couldn't be happier! Just wish it came with captain chairs in the 2nd row and not bench.

Miss the interior leg room for family

by from missoula, mt on August 6, 2017

Bought used and had issues with wiring harness, then transmission was slipping. So we traded for something smaller, new would be a better deal. Once paid off all the trouble started.
